John’s Jottings

Welcome to Woodstock Park from The Club Secretary

Good afternoon everyone and welcome to Woodstock Park.

Our visitors are Chatham Town. It’s great to see them back in the Ryman South after

a couple of financially challenging seasons in the Ryman North. Something we

had to endure a few seasons back. Welcome to their Players, Officials and supporters.

Thanks to our president, Alan Crowshaw, who is kindly sponsoring today’s match.

We have already played Chatham once this season when we won a close fought

league cup match in the last few minutes with a goal from Hicham Akhazzan.

Like us, Chatham are finding things difficult. This is a really important game for both

teams. We continued our poor run on Tuesday night after losing a match (yet again)

by the odd goal. We played much better than of late and I felt we continued the improvement

we showed when playing Molesey. At least a point for us would have

been a fair result in both games. This is the first of three matches that are crucial to

us moving away from danger. After Chatham is an away match at South Park and

next Saturday we travel to Peacehaven & Telscombe for a real 6 pointer.

As I wrote in my notes in the last programme please remember that if you wish to

purchase goods from Amazon please do it via the left hand column on our web site.

Just click on the Amazon link and it takes you to the normal front page of Amazon.co.uk

but by using this link we get commission on a purchase. You pay exactly

the same as if you went directly to Amazon.co.uk.

If you wish to sponsor a match please see any committee member. Thanks to our

sponsor on Tuesday, Brian Carey a partner with UHY Hacker Young who are accountants

whose office is in Roman Square, Sittingbourne.

We are, as I am sure you know, in the Quarter Finals of the League cup. This tie

will be played here at Woodstock on Tuesday 5 th January and our opponents are

Tooting & Mitcham. The other quarter final ties are, Enfield Town V Wingate &

Finchley, Faversham Town V Dorking Wanderers and Leiston V Kingstonian. Interestingly

then four teams come from the Premier Division and four teams from Ryman

South. This match will replace our scheduled away tie against Walton & Hersham.

The match at Walton & Hersham will be played on Tuesday 12 th January.

Next match for us is on Wednesday at South Park. That is followed by the must win

match at Peacehaven and then another away match on Tuesday 22nd December

at Dorking Wanderers. Our next home match is on Monday 28 th December ( a Bank

Holiday). This is against Ramsgate and is a 3:00pm kick off.

Have a great Christmas and thank you for supporting our great club. With your support

we can turn around our fortunes and look forward to a Happy New footballing

Year.

From the Chairman

A merry Christmas to you and your family.

The first half Tuesday night was the best we have played in a very long time. Considering

our performances of late it was a good crowd.

Sure decisions go against you when you have a bad run but I believe you make

your own luck. Results have to change as relegation would be a disaster so we all

need to pull together. Thanks to our fans who are always fantastic and stick with us

through good or bad.

Looking at the fixtures I think this week is the most important in my time as Chairman,

todays game at home to Chatham Home, South Park Away next Wednesday

and finally Peacehaven away the following Saturday. The two sides immediately

above us are not in good form, and with our games in hand we can catch them.

Let's all have one big effort to get behind the lads for a big week.

The team are improving with the new players but they need to play without fear

now and have a right go!

CHATHAM TOWN— A BRIEF HISTORY

The club was formed in 1882 as Chatham United, when Rochester

Invicta merged with the football team of the Royal Engineers Band

with the intention of creating a side that was capable of holding their

own with the best in the country. Harry Hobart's plan being to bring

together all the best players in the Medway Towns in one team.

They played their first match on 7th October that year, beating Harley

Street F.C. 4-0. Owing to their strong Army connections, Chatham

soon moved to a regular home on "The Lines", where they

were to remain until 1889 - the beginning of season 1889/90 seeing

them move to "Alderman Winch's Enclosed Ground", or as it is now

better known, the Maidstone Road Ground.

Having been formed with an eye to competing in the F.A. Cup, they

went on to reach the Quarter-Finals in 1888-89 - famously defeating

Nottingham Forest after two replays, only to lose to the holders

West Bromwich Albion. This game, which was played on "The

Lines" where an admission fee could not be charged owing to Army

regulations, was instrumental in the decision by the Football Association

that all future matches in the competition must be played on

fully enclosed grounds, where the visiting club would receive a

share of the gate money.

In 1894 Chatham were founder members of both the Southern

League and the original Kent League, becoming the first winners of

the latter competition. They were also winners of the Kent F.A.

Badge in the three seasons it was contested, and the first winners

of its successor, the Kent Senior Cup, in 1888/89. They also became

the first club to win the Thames and Medway Combination,

the direct predecessor of the present Kent League, in 1896/97.

Chatham were forced to resign from the Southern League during

the 1900/01 season, owing to financial difficulties, but they soon

rebuilt the club - playing as Chatham Amateurs for a brief spell in

1901 - before winning both the Kent League and Thames & Medway

Combination in 1903/04 without losing a single game in either

competition. They repeated the feat the following season, losing

just three games, whilst also defeating Sittingbourne 3-1 in the Final

of the Kent Senior Cup.

The First World War brought an end to football in the Medway

Towns, but Chatham were one of the first clubs locally to return to

action in 1919 - winning both the Kent Victory Cup and the Chatham

Charity Cup (for the eighth time) in a shortened season. They

briefly rejoined the Southern League in 1920/21, after the formation

of a Third Division for the Football League had taken half its' members,

but once again withdrew at the end of the season finding that

the increased travel costs were a severe drain on finances.

They once again had some success in the F.A. Cup during the

1920s, reaching the Second Round Proper in 1926/27 before losing

to Norwich City - who beat them again, this time in the First Round

Proper in 1928/29. They also reached the First Round Proper in

1925/26 and 1927/28, losing to Sittingbourne and Kettering Town

respectively.

A third spell in the Southern League, starting in 1927/28 almost

finished the club. They stuck it out for two seasons this time, but

once again the increased expenses - coupled with dwindling attendances

- saw them drop back into the Kent League. Things were to

get progressively worse, and 1933/34 saw the club take voluntary

relegation into Division Two of the Kent League, which they won in

1934/35 without accepting promotion, before opting to revert to

Amateur status. Having played in both the Kent League and Kent

Amateur League in 1938/39, they decided to play in just the latter

competition the following season - only to see all football suspended

with the beginning of World War Two. They played just one

game that season, beating London Paper Mills 2-0 on 26th August -

and would not play again until 1946.

Post War, Chatham won the Premier Division of the Kent Amateur

League in 1946/47, which was to be their last honour under that

name - having previously dropped the 'United' in 1898. On 7th

January 1947 they merged with Shorts F.C., the combined club

taking the name Chatham Town at the request of the local Council,

and a place in Division One of the Kent League for the following

season. There they were to remain until the League disbanded in

1959, whereupon they moved to the newly formed Aetolian League.

During this latter period they appeared in the Aetolian League Cup

Final in each of the five seasons it was contested, though winning

only once in 1962/63. The following year they finally captured the

League Championship, as well as the Aetolian/London League Cup

and then, when the Aetolian League formally merged with the London

League they moved to the Metropolitan League, in 1964/65, in

search of stronger opposition.

Although the club were drawing crowds of up to 1,000 playing

against strong Non-League opponents as well as sides from Arsenal,

Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United, they lost no time in

returning to the Kent League when it was reformed in 1968. Up

until their return to the Southern League in 1983, they had won the

Kent League on four further occasions, completing the League and

Cup double in both 1971/72 and 1977/78.

For a brief period during the seventies they changed their name to

Meway F.C., again at the request of the local Council, but happily

reverted back to Chatham Town in 1979. In 1980 they achieved

their biggest post-war success to date in winning the Eastern Professional

Floodlight League, playing against some of the strongest

Non League clubs of the day, including Maidstone United, and defeating

Chelmsford City in the Final over two legs.

In 1983 Chatham returned to the Southern League for the fourth

time, this time staying there until 1988, when having failed to gain

re-election they were relegated back to the Kent League - once

again in severe financial difficulties, with crowds often in double

figures against poorly supported clubs, as opposed to the much

healthier attendances they had enjoyed in the Kent League against

more local opposition.

After struggling during their first couple of seasons back in the Kent

League, the real turnabout in the clubs' fortunes came with the appointment

of popular former player John Adams as First Team

manager, however despite reaching the Third Qualifying Round of

the F.A. Cup in 1993/94, taking the club to the Final of the Kent

Senior Trophy in 1995/96 and finishing in the top three of the Kent

League for three successive seasons, he was dismissed by the

club following a disastrous start to the 1996/97 season.

1997/98 was to prove one of the most difficult seasons in the club's

history. Problems with a new drainage system meant that only a

handful of games could be played at Maidstone Road - which led to

a brief return to their "spiritual home" on the Lines, courtesy of the

Royal Engineers, as well as a brief ground-share with Gillingham at

Priestfield Stadium. The club returned home for the 1998/99 season

under new manager Carl Laraman, fortunes improving immediately

before in January Laraman left to take up a coaching position

at Charlton Athletic. His assistant, Steve Hearn, was appointed

player-manager and finally led the club to the Kent League Championship,

and promotion to the Dr. Martens League, in 2000/01.

The club enjoyed a good start to their first season back at this level,

but a poor run of results at the end of the season led to Steve

Hearn's resignation and the appointment of his assistant Peter Coupland

as his successor. After a bad start to the 2003/04 season,

Clive Walker replaced Coupland. Things improved dramatically,

and a season that had looked certain to end in relegation, ended

instead with Chatham in a mid-table position.

The 2004/05 season saw Chatham being placed in the newly

formed Southern League Eastern Division. The campaign got off to

a promising start, with Chatham sitting as high as fourth in early

October, however a poor run of results coupled with Clive Walker's

decision to return to his old club Dover Athletic, saw the Chats slip

to 16th. Assistant Steve Binks was appointed manager and results

improved towards the tail end of the season. Chatham finished the

season in 11th place, and was Kent's highest placed club.

Following yet another Pyramid reshuffle, the next few seasons saw

the club ping-pong between the Ryman League North and South

Divisions with regular mid table positions. Frustratingly the club

experienced regular wins against top six and promoted sides but

often followed up with defeats to bottom six sides. Season 2006/07

saw Phil Miles - another popular former player - move up to take

over as Manager. December 2007 saw Phil stand down due to work

commitments with Steve Binks taking over the job again, then to be

followed by 1 st team coach Alex O’ Brien stepping up for the 2009-

10 campaign. Throughout this period the club's strong youth policy

provided several new established first team players and the club

also achieved the coveted FA charter Standard award.

Season 2010-11 saw the club struggle on the pitch with Manager

Paul Foley resigning in the final weeks of the season with Player

coach Kevin Watson taking over. After achieving some great results

Kevin was appointed to his first Managerial position at the age of 30

after four seasons Kevin resigned following a run of poor results but

left the club with a legacy of some very good players for the new

incoming Manager Kevin Horlock in October 2015, the club are now

back playing in Division 1 South of the Ryman League, after four

seasons in the North, Vice-Chairman Barry Adams instigated significant

improvements to the playing surface so both of which will

hopefully lead to better times ahead for the “Chats..


From the Programme editor

Hello everyone and a warm welcome to our friends from Chatham Town. It’s good to see you

back with us in the Ryman League Division 1 South after a couple of seasons in “exile”!

Todays game is exactly half way through the season and we need to pick up points now. I was

talking to the Whitstable Town chairman Gary Johnson and he believes that they need 50

points to be sure of safety from relegation, that’s 43 more than they have at present, with them

having 21 games left to play, and that’s a massive ask. Personally I don’t believe that they need

that many points and the Oystermen, indeed any Kent team, would be a real loss to us as the

Kent rivalry brings us much needed extra spectators and therefore cash!

My only fond memory of the Molesey game was the cheeseburger. It was very tasty and the

bun was hot! It got me wondering which

ground (other than our own) serves the best

food. Certainly the best soup is served here

at Woodstock!

EQUALITY -

I have to confess that the secretary and I

often went to Molesey in the 1960’s to

watch Hampton, the team we supported at

the time. The ground has since been turned

round as it used to run parallel with the

main road, but apart from that it is little

changed from those days. The chairlady

made us feel very welcome. She is not only

chairperson, but also the first team secretary

and also secretary of two of the youth

teams, there’s dedication for you.

Thanks to Paul Golding for arranging a club

meal, and thanks of course to Phil the excellent

chef and to Mick the barmen.

The meal was excellent and I’m sure that all

that went enjoyed it.

A very merry Christmas to you all and thank

you for buying our programme, every penny

of the cover cost goes into the club!

Match Reports

By Tony Rickson

The abiding memory of this 12th successive

league defeat for Sittingbourne came in the 88th

minute when Jono Richardson lifted his shot over

the bar with the goal at his mercy.

This is not digging Jono out, because he’s been

an outstanding player for Sittingbourne who always

gives 100 per cent. But his miss summed

up their day, as of all the defeats they’ve suffered

this was probably the game they went closest to

getting something from.

I thought they were the better side in the first half

and they certainly finished the second half on

top, going so close to pulling something out of

the bag against a Molesey team who have now

won nine out of their eleven home games this

season.

But the Brickies trekked home from Surrey with

nothing to show for it again, and although they’ve

still got more than half a season left to recover

some form, they need to start picking up results

very soon.

On a grey blustery day, Sittingbourne showed

two changes from the team that lost to high-flying

Worthing on Tuesday night. Young striker Jordan

Wells, signed from Folkestone in the deal that

saw top scorer Harry Smith go the other way,

came straight in for his debut, while Billy French

returned in defence.

Down to substitute went Steven Ita and Stefan

Wright.

Going downhill in the first half, Sittingbourne occasionally

overhit the ball trying to get their two

strikers in behind the defence, but they were certainly

well in the game.

Miles Cornwell, who worked tirelessly up front

alongside the promising Wells, had the best

chance of the half when Ollie Bankole sent him

clear but the keeper saved a left-foot drive with

his legs.

At the other end, George Crimmen led strong

resistance and the only time the defence got

breached, Adam Molloy made a good diving

save.

Sittingbourne must have come out for the other

second half feeling this was a game they could

really get something from, but so, too, did Molesey

perhaps, as within two minutes they were

ahead.

The home side worked the ball down the right

and cut it back from the byline for the experienced

Palmer to hit a clever shot inside the post.

The game became much more stretched with

Wells shooting wide and then being foiled by the

keeper and Hicham Akhazzan sending a freekick

past the near post.

Molesey were more dangerous, too, and in between

picking up five second half bookings for

offences ranging from deliberate handball to elbowing

and time-wasting, they forced another

good save out of Molloy and Palmer put a great

chance over the bar on the turn.

Into the last 10 minutes and the game was still

wide open but Molesey looked to have assured

themselves of the win when the outstanding

McShane ran in behind the defence and scored

an excellent second goal.

But back came Sittingbourne and lively sub Stef

Wright got his throw-in beyond all the big men

and right across the goal for another sub, Ita, to

get a simple first goal for the club.

The drama wasn’t over as with Cornwell suddenly

finding space in the channels, it was all Sittingbourne

with Molesey desperately hanging on.

Crimmen just failed to get a vital touch in front of

goal on one chance, Richardson blasted his

great opportunity over, and Cornwell got in another

low cross from the right that went right

across the face of the goal with nobody able to

add a finishing touch.

So near yet so far, and Sittingbourne’s wait for

their first point since September drags on …

Match Reports

Ryman League Div 1 South

Sittingbourne Herne Bay , att 102

Yet another 2-1 defeat, and yet another bitter

disappointment for Sittingbourne after

looking so good for much of this Kent derby.

It’s not too optimistic to say that this rejigged

Sittingbourne side are improving, but

the results don’t show it yet as another

three points went begging.

Once more the energy levels and commitment

were good, but two more second half

goals were conceded as Sittingbourne

failed to hang on to a deserved half-time

lead.

This was a 13th successive league defeat

for Sittingbourne and it meant Herne Bay

have done the double over them this season

on their way to

mounting a serious play-off challenge.

Sittingbourne made three changes to the

team that lost at Molesey on Saturday

yes, that was 2-1, too. Vincente Mansanet

came in for his debut in goal in place of Adam

Molloy, and Stefan Wright and Steven

Ita

were recalled instead of Hicham Akhazzan

and Miles Cornwell. Up front, recent signing

Jordan Wells was making his home debut.

Sittingbourne made a positive start against

a Herne Bay team who had kept a clean

sheet for an impressive six games before

this.

George Crimmen headed narrowly wide

from an early Tom Brunt corner and Josh

Wisson, who had an excellent first half,

forced a decent save from

Delo from at least 20 yards out. At the other

end Bay had few chances though Cutts did

hit the bar and

Mansanet had to tip a goalbound header

over his own bar.

Sittingbourne’s first half enterprise brought

them a deserved lead on 38 minutes when

Wisson crossed from the left and Ita forced

home the ball at the far post at his second

attempt.

So that was Bay’s proud record of not conceding

in more than 1,000 minutes blown,

and by a player who was with them until a

couple of weeks ago. For Ita it was his second

close range goal in four days.

Sittingbourne had just about edged the first

half but Herne Bay emerged a more determined

side for the second half and seemed

to be helped along

by a whole succession of refereeing decisions

that somehow always went their way.

With Billy French enjoying a good game in

defence, Sittingbourne looked hard to

breach but Bay equalised midway through

the half when a long diagonal ball from the

left was driven in at the far post by Williams.

And within four minutes they’d won it. A

quick burst down the right ended with a

cross whipped in for ex-Sittingbourne striker

Mark Lovell to score an excellent winner

with a powerful header.

Sittingbourne rallied, just as at Molesey on

Saturday, and forced a couple of mad

scrambles in front of the Bay goal, but the

closest they came was when Wisson powered

in a low drive that bounced out off the

post.

Credit to Bay for the way they managed the

game and turned it round, but poor old Sittingbourne

just can’t get a break at the moment.

Their season doesn’t reach the halfway

point until Saturday, so there’s still plenty of

time to mount a recovery from third bottom.

This was another performance when they

weren’t at all bad, but they just weren’t quite

good enough to get something out of the

game.
