Sports letters: In the soup over vegetables

From David Eagle

Sir: I was much amused by your report of incidences of celery-throwing at home matches by fans of Gillingham FC.

What most interested me however was the statement by a club official that "it's been something to identify the club with... we're the only club to have a connection with a vegetable''. I think that the fans of many clubs, including the likes of Manchester City and Brighton, would take serious issue with this assertion.
