Keith Charlton

KENT-FTM

Midfield
The name I didn't recognise, but the minute I saw his picture I instantly new who he was.

One of the "faces" you'd see at every away game wherever the lads were playing. Sat behind me at the Hartlepool friendly this summer in a thick jacket, brought a smile to my face anyway in that blistering heat that day.



Noticed him at Walsall Saturday.

45 no age to go.

RIP.

It is with great sadness that I have to report Keith's passing yesterday.
As all who knew him, he was a MLF and travelled the World to watch his heroes in Red n White.

May you Rest in Peace my Good Friend and there's plenty at the Club that will miss you.

I dedicated last night's Win to you mate.

Oh no , me and Keith did a Sunderland university course together back in the day. We've lost a goodun there. :cry: Sincere condolences to his family.

Knew him from regular trips on the boldon branch bus back in its heyday, and last saw him when he came over to Toronto for the pre season game in 2015 with a few other boldon lads. He really lived for the club. Such sad news.

Gutted. Known him since we were kids. Lovely lad. Used to play footy with him on the wastey (proper jumpers for goal posts) then as we got older went to all of the away matches together on the travel club. He was 45. RIP Keith.
'The wastey' that's a blast from the past, remember playing footy there now and again, Keith was always there.. RIP lad!

Was with him at arsenal away couple of years back. Took another mate of mine. The poor lad had never met someone from the north east before and was getting increasingly annoyed with Keith because he couldn't understand his accent
Tbf the poor lad was confused all night :lol::lol::lol:


Was a loyal fan, absolutely loved the lads
 
Keith Charlton, what can I say? A lovely lovely lad, a harmless and sensitive person, friendly, passionate and a true supporter....probably one of the best fans of our club I have ever had the pleasure to meet and travel with. Been to many places with this fella and and quite honestly say he would do anything and go anywhere to be with his beloved team and his ‘loony bunch of friends’ who always would look after him.
RIP Keith, the ‘Hats’ will miss you mate, sincere condolences to his family. A sad loss to our Sunderland Football Club family.

Spotted him at every away game I've been to.

Was he connected to the Feyenoord Mackems? Would see him from time to time with a lad that brings a Feyenoord Mackems flag to games (the lad with the walking stick).

Know the feeling well....there's a Gatesheed lad I see occasionally at games and for the most part I can't understand a fcuking word he says....I usually just nod and agree with what he says:lol:
