MASON MOUNT’S Chelsea have not been in action for almost a fortnight.
So the England star’s been getting his kicks by watching non-league Margate FC instead.
Chelsea star Mount, 24, was a surprise visitor last night as the Isthmian League Premier Division side beat rivals Kingstonian away from home.
Mount posed for a picture with a delighted fan as he wrapped up warmly at Imperial Fields.
And Margate’s official Twitter account tweeted: “Mason Mount is a Margate fan.”
It’s not the first time the midfielder has taken in a non-league match this season.
In September, Mount paid a visit to fellow Kent-based side Faversham, who play in the Isthmian South East Division.
Chelsea had been due to play Liverpool on the same day, but the match was postponed due to the Queen’s funeral.
Faversham boss Jermaine Darlington said: “He was there, that had the crowd buzzing a little bit.
“It’s great he took the time to come down. He gave the fans and the players a little bit of a buzz.”

Mount’s support for Margate and Faversham remains unclear though, with the ace born in Portsmouth and a fan of the south-coast side.
Chelsea fans are sure to be encouraged by the way Mount is soaking up football outside Stamford Bridge though.
The Blues are looking to soar back up the table after making an incredible eight signings in January.
And Graham Potter’s men can kickstart their season when they host Fulham tomorrow, looking to overturn last month’s defeat at Craven Cottage.
