Tonbridge

Founded in 1947, Tonbridge Football Club is today known as Tonbridge Angels. There original ground, the Angel Ground, had been used for first-class cricket by Kent until 1939. In 1980 the ground was closed and the club moved to the Longmead Stadium in Darenth Avenue, Tonbridge. The old ground was later demolished, with the Angel Shopping Centre built on the site. It had been here that Frank Woolley and Arthur Fielder had put on a record last wicket stand of 235 when Kent beat Worcester in 1909. It was here that the same year, that Warwickshire had been bowled out for just 16.
