Friday 5th August 2016

Supporters from Maidstone United and York City will pay tribute to fan Charlie Girling at this Saturday’s match.

The 12-year-old, of the 1st Aylesford Scouts, died at an international jamboree in Finland on July 24.

On the 12th minute of the game there will be supporter-led minute’s applause in memory of Charlie and as a show of support to his family and friends.

Club secretary Ian Tucker said: “Our thoughts are with Charlie’s family and friends at this most difficult time.

“On a day when he should have been at the Gallagher Stadium watching the Stones play York City, we will take a moment during the game to remember him.”
