18 Jun: Archie Ward RIP

1 year ago By Martin Able

Thanet football community shocked at Father's Day stabbing

Well known local footballer, Michael 'Archie' Ward, was stabbed at a BBQ on Sunday and died shortly afterwards.

Archie was a centre-forward who used to cause defences all sorts of problems, and was a prominent figure with both Dolphin FC and Cherry Orchard FC.

He also played for Ramsgate's Reserves under Micky Morgan in 2002, a squad that was filled with up and coming local talent (many of who are still playing locally 15 years later).

A memorial game is planned for 30 July at Southwood, 10.30am kickoff, which is being organised by the Thanet Sunday League, to celebrate Archie's life on and off the pitch and to raise funds for his family.
