On the Hunt for success
Adam Hunt gives Di Paola's growing squad a boost
When Adam Hunt limped out of our recent match against Cray Wanderers, it was hard not to feel sympathy for our popular midfielder. Having been one of the many stars of our County League triumph a year ago, ‘Hunty’ missed all of last season through injury yet looked to be back at his energetic best as we got the current campaign underway back in August until a snapped Achilles at the end of last month condemned him to another lengthy spell on the sidelines. To compound the thirty year old’s misery, he was recently made redundant from his role as a process control engineer with this latest injury setback leaving him unable to seek new work.
Adam’s plight prompted Supporters Club Chairman John Dalby to arrange a bucket collection on his behalf at the recent match against Molesey and we are delighted that, despite the fairly modest attendance, the collection returned a three figure sum that has now been passed on to the player. “I want to say a massive thanks to all the supporters who did the whip round for me” said Adam. “It was something that nobody had to do so I’m really grateful as every little helps and I really appreciate their generosity. It’s yet another sign of top people involved at a great club. It’s turned out to be another disappointing season for me personally but this gesture means a lot to me and I really appreciate the support of everyone at the club.”
