I'm chairman of Kidsgrove athletic football club that was the reason for my visit we played afc Stamford which we lost 4 v 1 that was the only downside. but we had a lovely time visiting Stamford and Peterborough beautiful places really good local pubs the Angel inn and the paper mill well worth a visit. Thank you for everything the Fitzjohn clan .
