It all gets Messi!

Tonbridge Chairman Steve Churcher, on a recent trip to Florida, may have secured a ground breaking deal with one of the greatest players in the world - Lionel Messi - but not until he reaches the age of 35!
By chance Steve met with Messi's US agent Lario Flops on Florida's Falcon's Fire golf course in March.
"We got talking about football and Lario was so taken with the plight of Tonbridge Angels not reaching the FA Cup 1st round since 1972 that i think he felt a little sorry for us. So I simply suggested if we could get Lionel in for the 2022-23 season - the 50th Anniversary - and he tentatively said yes (after a few G & T's)."
Lionel, following a short phone call with his agent Lario, was so impressed that he made a quick return trip between important La Liga fixtures just for the photo shoot with Mr Churcher.
"it was totally unreal. I had to keep checking my watch that it wasn't April Fool's Day!".
