That's a great post Christine and sums up the unchartered waters we found ourselves in.

I too was genuinely shaken and very uncertain as to how it was going to end. A full on ruck seemed inevitable as the final whistle approached and I was looking for somewhere to hide my glasses!

The abiding memory will be standing there taking abuse and venom from a bunch of savages, the game a virtual irrelevance by then, wondering why no-one was coming to help?

How could Folkestone's Directors, Committee or loyal supporters just let it carry on unabated when it was quite clear we were the faithful Leafe support, only there to cheer on and sing for our team?

I'm still disgusted by the whole episode and the fact that no-one of Folkestone persuasion seemed to give a toss for our safety. It shames their whole club if they like it or not.

Saturday's Final is a win-win for us now though. If Folkestone go up we don't have to go there next term (or miss a game in my case) and if they lose we can (almost) wet ourselves laughing. I shall be watching it on Twitter with interest.
