Guided by committee member Brian Lindon, Mary was given the full lowdown on the club's plans for the future.

As well as learning a thing or three about Cheadle Town FC, Mary returned a few tidbits of information that raised a smile.

First of all we found out that Cheadle Town FC were mentioned in the House of Commons Parliamentary Debates as part of Mary's maiden speech. In mentioning the unfortunate result to the Russia U19 side last October, Mary said that "our amateur football teams are important".

Mary also said that our mention got a nod of approval from none other than Lord Mayor of London Boris Johnson! Perhaps we have a secret fan down there in our nation's capital....

Mary was also kind enough to give us a mention on Twitter, saying how much she enjoyed her visit to Park Road.

We would like to go on record to say many thanks to Mary for taking the time to come to Park Road in what must be a busy schedule.
