H-Block!

It was a case of Friends Reunited last night at Chatham Town’s Bauvill Stadium as two former school mates faced each other across the full length of the pitch.

The two ‘Hs’ – Fleet goalkeeper Harrison Firth and Chatham stopper Harvey Mills, both 17 – previously faced each other across the school desks having been part of the same form in years gone by.

Chatham’s Mills was a late replacement for the home side’s regular goalkeeper while Firth played the full second-half for the Fleet, having also appeared in the first half against Punjab United on Friday.

Firth’s elevation to first-team duties began late last season and he saw plenty of action in Fleet’s practice matches in March and April after the league season was suspended. The goalkeeper said after last night’s match, “It’s been really enjoyable and a big learning experience in and around the first-team environment. There’s plenty of hard work to do in pre-season but that’s important for us as players and the team.”

Chatham’s Mills, meanwhile, became an overnight hero last season when his 89th minute penalty save on his debut after coming on as a substitute secured his club’s passage in the FA Cup.
