Welcome to Woodstock Park from The Club Secretary

Good evening everyone. Welcome to

Woodstock Park.

Our visitors are Worthing. Welcome to their

players, officials and supporters and also to

this evenings match officials.

Our poor run in the league goes on. On Saturday

we made the short trip to Hythe to

play a team who not so long ago were in our

position. They have turned their season

round though and are now in a comfortable

mid table position. Defensively we have

done fairly well but you only have to look at

the number of goals we have scored to see

where the problem lies. I am sure that the

forwards would think that the service to

them has been poor and they would have a

point. Hythes first goal should never have

happened. Hythe were awarded a harsh

free kick around 25 yards from the Sittingbourne

goal. A poor touch by a Hythe

player who tried to pass the ball to his right

was intercepted by new signing Steven Ita.

The referee, wrongly, pulled Ita up for encroaching

on the free kick and cautioned

him. Ex Folkestone forward, Frankie Sawyer

took the kick again and shot at goal. Unfortunately

for the Brickies the ball struck a defender

and was diverted into the goal. At

this stage Sittingbourne players were more

than holding their own and must have felt

agrieved at the referees decision. We had

chances to equalise but as has been the

pattern recently none were taken. In the 80 th

minute Sawyer scored his second in a

breakaway as Sittingbourne were searching

for an equaliser.

John’s Jottings

Last Tuesday we travelled to Hastings for

our third round League Cup tie. Nick played

two of our Under 21 team in Jack Steventon

and Josh Wisson. Both were outstanding in

an excellent team display. The passion that

sometimes seems to be missing in League

matches was there in abundance. Hastings

went into the lead in the first half but Sittingbourne

came out all guns blazing in the

second . The pressure on Hastings was rewarded

when Ollie Bankole scored against

his old club. The game went to penalties

and at one stage it looked like we were going

out of the cup with the penalty score at 3

-1 to Hastings. However two Hastings penalty

misses and Wisson and Steventon

made the score 3-3. And so to sudden

death. Hastings missed their penalty and

Conrad Lee stepped up to score and take

the Brickies through to the Quarter Finals.

Adam Molloy was outstanding in goal in this

game and made two penelty saves in the

penalty competition. This was an excellent

win against a full strength Hastings side.

Worthing are flying high in the league in

second place. Saturday they drew 1-1 with

Tooting & Mitcham. We will have to improve

greatly on Saturdays performance to get anything

out of tonights match.

Welcome to Steven Ita who joins us from

Herne Bay. Steven is an ex Woodstock

Sports player who was a target for Nick at

the beginning of the season so we are

pleased he has joined us now. Leaving us is

Ollie Brown who is expected to join Ramsgate.

Finally, I would like to thank one of our

staunchest supporters, Neil Cornelius, better

known as “Southend Brickie”. On Saturday,

Neil handed me a plastic bag full of

change and said it was for the club. He told

me that it was the change he had left over

when he gets home to Southend after his

trips to support the Brickies. When I counted

it there was £68.00 in the bag! It never

ceases to amaze me how generous our

supporters are. Like most clubs every penny

counts with us and Neil’s fantastic donation

was most welcome

Next Saturday we take a trip to Surrey to

play Molesey.

Enjoy the Match

From the Chairman

Was over the moon with last Tuesday's result breaking our sequence.

With key players cup tied it was good to see the youngsters pull us

through. On the back of that the defeat at Hythe on Saturday was a huge

body blow and dropping into the bottom three really puts us in a serious

position. We all felt if we replicated our form of last Tuesday on Saturday

we could have got something at Hythe.

No let up tonight as we give a warm welcome to high flying Worthing who

won't make our quest for points very easy. Thanks to everyone for their

continued support through these very difficult times.

WORTHING — A BRIEF HISTORY

Worthing Association FC was founded in February

1886 and played home matches mostly in the

People's (now Homefield) Park until the Club

moved to Beach House Park in 1889.

Worthing were founder members of the West Sussex

Senior League in 1896, along with their local

rivals Worthing Athletic (founded 1891). The first

of 7 championships was won in 1898-99, qualifying

Worthing to play the East Sussex League

champions Brighton Athletic in the Sussex Charity

Cup donated by the Royal Irish Rifles. This match

was lost 2-1, but we went on to win the RUR Cup

(as it became known) 13 times (including twice

jointly with Horsham).

In 1899-00 the name "Association" was dropped

and we entered the FA Cup and FA Amateur Cup

for the first time.

In May 1900 Worthing and Worthing Athletic

merged and in 1901 the Club moved to its current

home, then known as the Sports Ground, now as

Woodside Road. There was further merger, this

time with Worthing Rovers in 1905.

In 1907-08 Worthing reached the quarter-finals of

the FA Amateur Cup, where we drew 1-1 away to

the eventual winners Depot Battalion Royal Engineers,

before losing the replay 1-0 before a then

record crowd of over 3,100.

After World War I, in 1919-20, Worthing competed

in 2 leagues, being founder members of the

Senior Division of the Brighton, Hove & District

League and rejoining the West Sussex League.

The FA Cup 1 st Round Proper was reached in 1936

-37, Worthing losing 4-3 at Yeovil & Petters United.

In the 4 th Qualifying Round we had beaten

Wimbledon in front of our highest reported crowd

of 3,600.

In 1948-49 Worthing joined the Corinthian

League. Little success was had in this league, finishing

bottom 4 times.

The Corinthian League became Division 1 of the

Athenian League in 1963 and Worthing enjoyed

immediate success, being promoted as runnersup

to Leatherhead.

Three seasons were spent in the Athenian League

Premier Division before two successive relegations

saw us languishing in Division 2. Worthing started

their revival in 1971-72 by returning to Division 1

as runners-up to Staines Town and the following

season reached the Athenian League Cup final,

losing 2-0 away to Amateur Cup finalists Slough

Town after extra-time.

Worthing left the Athenian League in 1977 to become

members of the newly formed Isthmian

League Division 2. Barry Lloyd was appointed

manager in 1981 and the Division 2 title was won

in 1981-82 and in 1982-83 we won the Division 1

title and reached the 2 nd Round of the FA Cup,

losing 4-0 at Oxford United.

In 1985-86 we reached the last 16 of the FA Trophy;

then Barry Lloyd left to join Brighton & Hove

Albion and the following year Worthing were relegated

from the Premier Division. Four years later

we had a disastrous season, finishing bottom of

Division 1 with only 10 points and having conceded

157 goals.Former Northern Ireland international

Gerry Armstrong was appointed manager in

1991-92 and the following season Worthing became

the first club to win Division 2 for a second

time.

Armstrong left in the summer of 1994 to be replaced

by his coach John Robson. Premier Division

status was regained as runners-up to Boreham

Wood in his first season and the FA Cup 1 st Round

reached again (losing 3-1 at AFC Bournemouth

after taking the lead).

Worthing finished bottom in their first season

back in the Premier and Robson was replaced as

manager. Others followed before Brian Donnelly

became manager at Christmas 1996. "Sammy"

was to remain manager until November 2001

when Barry Lloyd returned for his second spell in

charge.

In 2001 Worthing celebrated 100 years of playing

at Woodside Road and in 2003-04 regained our

Premier Division place. But relegation followed in

2007 The management partnership of Alan Pook

and Danny Bloor resigned at the end of 2008-09

and Simon Colbran took over but lasted just one

season before being replaced by Chris White. The

Club's next appointment was joint -managers, Lee

Brace and Kieran Collins. After poor results the

duo depart in October 2013 and Adam Hinshelwood

took the reigns.

In January 2015 the playing budget at the club

was completely cut and its debts revealed to be

around £200,000. The future of the club looked in

serious doubt until March 2015 when local football

enthusiast George Dowell became the majority

shareholder in the club with plans to invest in various

areas

Hinshelwood spent a year and a half at the helm

before resigning in June this year to take up a full

time coaching role at Brighton & Hove Albion, and

former Albion, Eastleigh and Lewes defender Jon

Meeney and Gary Elphick were appointed as joint

team managers.


From the Programme editor

A warm welcome to the Worthing players, supporters and officials, and of course

our own die hard supporters. Worthing’s is a story that many of us crave for,

someone coming in and helping financially with what is most of the time a constant

worry about the cost of running a football club at this level.

The hurt goes on for us still and the deadline when we make a firm decision on

the future is looming so rest assured that the committee will do what is best for

the club. We now print our programmes and both the secretary and I have a

hand in this. We have now both purchased

laser printers (not at the clubs

cost), and the programme is now

printed on these. Before we used a

combination of laser and ink jet, and

boy was that hard work! We do therefore

greatly appreciate you buying the

programme and you can be sure that

100% of the cover cost goes directly

to the club and not to the production

of the programme. So please encourage

your supporter friends to buy

one!

To try and increase income we have

also appointed a commercial manager

(on a commission only basis) to

help John Cooper who’s poor health

continues to restrict what he can do

for us, and make no mistake that has

been a lot over the years. Enjoy the

game...Peter

Match Reports

By Tony Rickson

What an amazing result – and what a devastating

thrashing for out-of-sorts Sittingbourne.

It was their heaviest defeat for nearly two

years, and their biggest home defeat for goodness

how long – certainly going back into the

last century at least.

Chipstead had just appointed their third manager

of the season days before the game. And

how he’d transformed the team with the sort of

excellent signings that will surely soon see

them racing up the table.

the visitors’ defence too tough a nut to crack.

Nothing went right for Sittingbourne, and their

ninth successive league defeat was inevitable

from the fifth minute onwards, as by then Chipstead

were two-up and on their way to being

out of sight.

Sittingbourne made just one change from the

previous Saturday, Miles Cornwell coming in

for Hicham Akhazzan, and they were greeted

by what felt like the first day of winter, a bitterly

cold wind blowing straight down the Woodstock

pitch.

Chipstead had it behind them for the first half

and took immediate – and spectacular – advantage.

Midfielder Carter, 25 yards out,

smashed his shot into the top corner, and even

the supremely agile Adam Molloy in the Sittingbourne

goal couldn’t get near it.

And one became two with just five minutes on

the clock. Sittingbourne lost possession in their

opponents’ half, with Stef Wright claiming unsuccessfully

for a foul, and Chipstead broke

quickly. Clarke cut in from the left – too easily –

and crossed for ex-Crystal Palace striker Tieku

to head in from just a couple of yards.

Sittingbourne must have planned so much for

this match, knowing it was a real ‘six-pointer,’

and it took them a little while to get over the

shock of being two-down so soon.

But they did recover and soon got a goal back

when Tom Brunt crossed from deep, Harry

Smith saw his header saved, but Dane Luchford

was in the right place to bundle in the

loose ball.

Clearly, the next goal was going to be crucial,

but it was Chipstead who looked the far more

dangerous going forward and Carter was in the

right place to smash home at the second attempt

and make it 3-1 with just over half-anhour

played.

Demoralised Sittingbourne looked all at sea

whenever Chipstead raced down the pitch, and

despite Molloy pulling off more good saves,

they got a fourth just before half-time when

Carter won a header in the six-yard box and

Tieku, though looking offside, scored from all

of a yard out.

Sittingbourne didn’t mess about with the

changes, going for broke with a triple substitution

soon after the second half started and

leaving just three defenders at the back.

But the damage had been done already and

Chipstead were able to comfortably defend

their lead, as well as add further goals on the

break, with danger-man Clarke getting the fifth

and Carter rounding it off with his hat-trick goal

in the last minute.

Sittingbourne never gave up, and Conrad Lee

and Akhazzan went close, while Luchford often

popped up in good places and was unlucky a

couple of times in not being able to get in a telling

shot.

But on an afternoon of weather to forget, it was

even more of a nightmare of a game to forget

for Sittingbourne. Good will come out of it only

if this lowpoint also turns out to be the turning

point of the season.

Sittingbourne: Molloy, Brunt, Lee, French,

Crimmen, P Smith, Luchford, Bankole

(Akhazzan 51 mins) , H Smith (Williams 51

mins) , Cornwell, Wright (Richardson 51 mins).

As we edge ever closer to the busy Christmas

footballing calendar, the headlines just keep on

coming for former Non-League starlet Jamie

Vardy.

The ex-Stocksbridge Park Steels, FC Halifax

and Fleetwood striker Vardy has made a remarkable

impact on the Premier League having

equalled former Manchester United forward

Ruud van Nistelrooy's record of goals in ten

consecutive games.

His tenth of the season signified that he was

not just a one season wonder having played

Non-League football just four years ago.

Talent is often buried in the most unlikely of

places.

But in recent weeks Non-League football has

been dealt a tough card – perhaps taking away

from the influence Vardy has had on the

search for emerging talent.

Unsurprisingly, Football League clubs have

voted in favour of increased parachute payments

for clubs relegated from League Two in

to the Conference.

The cash that clubs receive is set to ascend at

an alarming rate.

An unbelievable £750,000 will be on offer,

meaning that relegation will result in around

£474,000 being handed out followed by a

“mere” £237,000 during a club’s second year in

the National League.

Not only does this sort of money draw parallels

with clubs relegated from the Premier League

(a sore subject for many football fans) but it

allows clubs to readily spend in the notoriously

“toughest” league to get out of.

Cheltenham Town are sitting pretty at the top

of the National League and, having been an

established Football League club for sixteen

seasons, have the credentials to get back in to

League Two.

But just ask Luton Town fans and they will tell

you that nothing is certain. Surely that is all

part of the fun?

Maybe ‘fun’ is not the right word for fans but

the point of a promotion battle is to be competitive,

prove you are better and have the best

side win the league.

Forest Green are certainly on Gary Johnson’s

heels to book their first-ever place in the Football

League and there will no doubt be more

twists and turns as the season progresses.

However, it begs the question of how long that

will last with increased payments easing the

blow of one of the biggest fears in football –

relegation.

Will we really have to rely on the FA Cup to

provide us with excitement – although based

on recent years that shouldn’t be too much of a

problem.

Rising star stories including that of Stevenage

Borough, Crawley Town, Yeovil Town and

Dagenham and Redbridge – clubs who have

progressed up the ladder – are at risk of becoming

a distant memory.

These clubs now all currently face the prospect

of the drop from League Two and surely giving

them a head start defeats the object of their

past achievements?

We should be nurturing talent like Vardy and

enjoying the competitive football in all leagues,

not letting money cause conflict and resentment.

So whichever match you may be watching,

look out for the next big name as talent can

overrule money.

The Alan Turvey Trophy sponsored by

Robert Dyas 15-16 - 3rd Round,

Hastings Utd 1 Sittingbourne 1, att 135

Sittingbourne win 4-3 on penalties.

A welcome boost to the Brickies as they

held their nerve to reach the quarter finals

of the league cup.

Josh Wisson made his first start and Nick

Davis picked himself to give some more

strength to the defence. Dane Luchford was

cup tied and Harry Smith rested.

Wisson had the first attempt with a dipping

volley from about thirty-five yards out that

Hastings keeper Josh Pelling safely held.

But United went close inside five minutes

when Richardson-Brown sent Temba clear

to round keeper Adam Molloy, but Stefan

Wright got back to block on the line.

Then Billy Medlock powered a twenty-five

yard free kick narrowly over the bar, but on

19 minutes Medlock gave United a 19th minute

lead when good work by Temba teed

Cumming-Bart for a low shot that Molloy

could only push out, and Medlock buried

the rebound. Medlock was in action again

with a skidding twenty yard effort well saved

by Molloy low to the keeper's right.

Sittingbourne responded with a terrific long

range strike by Hicham Akhazzan that

swerved late and almost caught out Pelling,

but he made a good save away to his left.

second period, much like most of the first

half. Suddenly, though Sittingbourne created

their best chance to date, as Tom

Brunt's driven cross is turned over by

Akhazzan from six yards out. But

Sittingbourne did equalise in the 56th minute

through former Hasting’s midfielder

Ollie Bankole who led a swift counterattack,

exchanging passes with Miles Cornwell,

before steering a low shot past Pelling

from fifteen yards.

The Brickies almost added a second. When

Akhazzan cut in from the left but Pelling did

well to save with his feet, before turning a

Cornwell shot wide.

Triple substitution for Hastings saw Harris,

Cruttwell and Johnson replace Temba, Hollobone

and Cumming-Bart, and Harris nearly

scored within seconds of his arrival, but

Wright did really well to divert his close

range effort behind for a corner.

Adam Williams replaced Miles Cornwell for

Sittingbourne. His first touch was a looping

header over Pelling and into the net, but the

effort was flagged off-side, however this

looked a very dodgy decision!

With the minutes ticking by young Josh

Wisson's tremendous strike from twentyfive

yards whistled inches past the upright

and then for Hastings Johnson attacked an

ocean of space outside the Bourne area,

but dragged his shot well wide, and the

game went to penalties.

At the other end Wilson's left wing cross is

met by Richardson-Brown with a firm header,

but the ball went straight to Molloy, then

Rowe conceded a free kick to Sittingbourne

just outside the area, but Akhazzan

dragged his shot well wide.

The half ended with Hollobone's twenty-five

yarder fizzing just over the top.

No changes to either team ahead of the restart

and a pretty low key opening to the

time Sittingbourne were 3-1 down, but then

remarkable efforts by Wisson, Steventon
