Arsenal fans plan Woolwich return

You couldn't make it up. Arsenal fans in Surrey are planning a phoenix club with the objective of rising through the non-league ranks and returning to their roots in Woolwich in a purpose built stadium: Dial Square breakaway club

My grandfather was a clerk of works at Woolwich Arsenal. My grandmother was a keen Charlton fan. It's a good job the news hasn't reached Plumstead Cemetery.

Words fail me, other than ones inappropriate for a family page. The Woolwich Rejects would not be welcome to return, even if they still have fans in the area.
