Exonian football fan joins the ’92 Club’
Congratulations to Mark Chatterton (1976, Theology) who has completed the feat of watching a competitive match at all 92 league football grounds in the country.
Mr Chatterton watched his first football league match in Chester in the 1960s. In the 1980s he started to follow Southend United, including in their away fixtures.
The father-of-three said: ‘Like a lot of football fans who achieve this, I realised that I’d reached my 50th ground and decided I wanted to finish off visiting the rest – for me, that was about five years ago.’
Mr Chatterton has now watched competitive matches at over 100 different football grounds, including some non-league. You can read more about his footballing journey at www.doingthe92plus.co.uk.
