A Catch Up With: Hayden Jones on Bamber’s Right Foot Fanzine

The Final instalment of our fascinating series on TUFC fanzines sees an interview with Hayden Jones on ‘Bamber’s Right Foot’: When did Bamber’s Right Foot start and how long did it run for? Blimey.

And I further believe that issue … More A Catch Up With: Hayden Jones on Bamber’s Right Foot Fanzine

The TT Match Verdict: #TUFC 0-2 Dover Athletic – 7th Oct

Match Summary: Back down to earth with a bump on Non-League Day. Dover came to Plainmoor and showed why they are fighting at the top of the National League, whilst our poor display shows why Owers still has plenty of hard work on his hands.
