John’s Jottings

Welcome to Woodstock Park from The Club Secretary

Good evening everyone, welcome to Woodstock Park.

Our visitors are Whyteleafe. Welcome to their Players, officials and supporters and tonight’s

match officials.

Tonight Hicham Akhazzan, if he is selected, will rack up 400 appearances for the Brickies - A

magnificent achievement. I have lost count of the number of 7 day approaches we have had for

Hicham over the years. He has of course turned them all down. Hicham made his debut against

Maidstone Utd in a Kent Senior Cup tie on 11th November 2006. His loyalty to Sittingbourne

Football Club is unparalleled. In the time he has been with us he has scored 92 goals. We all

hope that he has many more seasons with us.

We played Whyteleafe on their artificial pitch in September and came away with a 2-1 win. Our

goals were scored by players no longer with us, Fred Obassa and Harry Smith. What made this

a really good victory is that Sittingbourne were without five first teamers through injury and of

course were playing on an unfamiliar surface.

Our last home match saw us progress to the semi finals of the Alan Turvey league cup sponsored

by Robert Dyas. Corinthian Casuals were the opponents and they had already done the

double over us in the league. Nick was without Miles Cornwell through suspension and cup tied

players Stephen Ita, Jordan Wells, Kerry Kedze, Josh Algar and Scott Whibley, At one time we

had five under 21 team members playing. The first half was fairly even but the second was definitely

Sittingbourne’s. Our semi Final opponents are Faversham Town and the game takes

place on Tuesday 1 st March.

Either side of the league cup game we have had two 3-0 defeats. The first was against Tooting

& Mitcham. We were never really in this match and Tooting deserved their win Last Saturday we

made the long trip to Worthing Miles Cornwell was serving the last game of his suspension and

Josh Wisson was on England Schoolboy duties. New signing, Scott Whibley was also serving a

suspension. Worthing are a young enthusiastic side who are definitely one of the best teams we

have played if not the best. Worthing went into the lead but after half time we looked the better

team without getting the crucial equaliser. What often happens when a team is chasing the

game happened. Worthing scored a break away goal that looked by some way off side. A further

goal for the home side near the end of the match gave the scoreline a flattering look in favour

of the home side.

Welcome to another new signing today who is Tom Carlse, a defender who has signed from

East Grinstead Town. Our next two games are both against

the same opponents – Walton & Hersham. Away on Saturday

and home next Tuesday.

Nicks Notes

Last Tuesday we were excellent against Corinthian-Casuals in the Quarter final of the league

cup and to come back from being behind to win proves we have great character in the dressing

room. With 4 players cup tied and 3 others unavailable we had 5 teenagers in the 16.

It’s important to realise what we have achieved so far and to be in the last 4 from 72 and to

bring the club some much needed prize money which wouldn’t have been expected at the

start of the season. With that it also gives us a mouth-watering semi-final clash and Kent Derby

against our nearest rivals Faversham.

On Saturday I thought we played very well. For 25/30 minutes of the second half I thought we

were outstanding and there was only one team in the game. Unfortunately with throwing more

bodies forward in the search for the equaliser we were caught out twice on the break. I’m not

taking anything away from Worthing because as an attacking force they are the best we have

seen in the league and to be disappointed to lose says it all. We have some really important

games coming up and we encourage you to come out in force and get behind the lads as you

always do.

WHYTELEAFE — A BRIEF HISTORY

Whyteleafe FC, was formed in 1946 commencing in

Junior football as members of the Caterham and

Edenbridge, the Thornton Heath & District and the

Croydon Leagues progressing two years later to the

Surrey County Intermediate League (Eastern Division)

and were Division 1 champions in 1955/6.

1958 saw the significant transition from 'Junior' to

'Senior' status and entry into the Surrey Senior

League. This change required the club to move from

the New Barn Lane School ground which was inadequate

for senior football and with a dynamic committee

under the leadership of Secretary Dick

Baxendine, the club purchased approximately four

acres of farmland in nearby Church Road, where

the club still play today.

Play commenced on the ground in season 1959/60,

and in the early sixties the club gained minor rewards

with the reserve team playing under the guidance

of former Crystal Palace hero Roy Greenwood.

The next success came as the 1960s drew to

a close which saw 'Leafe as Surrey Senior League

Champions and runners up to Bracknell Town in the

League cup.

In the 1970s the floodlight training area and stand

were built and in 1975, after seventeen happy years

with the Surrey Senior League, the club moved into

the London Spartan League, where the best they

achieved was third place on two occasions in the six

years of their membership. In 1981 the club joined

the Athenian League and it was at about this time in

the early 80s that the main pitch floodlights were

installed and the dressing rooms were moved to a

new location on the top bank enabling the clubhouse

to be extended.

The 1980/81 season saw the club reached the 5th

round of the FA Vase losing to Basildon United.

Four years later in the 1984/85 season, a league reorganisation

saw the club enter Division Two South

of the Isthmian League

In November 1986 Steve Kember joined the club as

Manager having been associated with the club for

some years previously when with Crystal Palace

with whom he had won considerable success.

A highly successful 1988/89 saw the club win promotion

as runners-up in Division Two South to Division

One.

Steve Kember resigned in July 1993 and returned to

Crystal Palace as a coach.

Season 1998/99 proved to be very mixed, with the

club achieving good cup results losing to Welling

United in sight of a first round visit to Bristol Rovers

in the FA Cup, and winning through to the last 32 in

the FA Trophy going out to the eventual winners

Kingstonian in front of a record home crowd of 945.

But a season of chronic injury saw 'Leafe struggle to

survive in the league and avoided relegation by winning

the last game of the season.

However, 1999/2000 proved the most momentous

in the club's history. For the first time ever the club

reached the 1st Round proper of the FA Cup when

a crowd of 2,164, easily beat the previous season's

record in a match which saw them hold league opponents

Chester City to a 0-0 draw before going

down 1-3 in a replay at Chester.

An imposing new stand was built at the top end of

the ground just in time for the big match.

Following the promotion battles of the previous two

seasons, the 'Leafe's form in 2001/2 slumped and

only a re-organisation of the Ryman League saved

the club from its first relegation.

2010/11 was always going to be difficult season with

virtually no money to support the running of the 1st

team and the club only just steered themselves

away from relegation.

While 2010/11 was hard, the following year was

doubly so. Nick English’s hard work and commitment

was never in doubt but things just didn't work

for him the following year and he left the club in January

2012. Several days after English's departure,

Steve Griffin was appointed manager in his place

and given the tough job of catching up 20th placed

side Burgess Hill Town when 12 point adrift.

The appointment coincided with a change in club

constitution which saw Mark Coote become ownerchairman

(as opposed to elected-chairman). The

change gives the Club renewed hope of future development

and progression yet the 2011/12 season

ended in bitter disappointment and the club’s first

relegation in its history despite drawing level with

Burgess Hill at one point and only losing to an extraordinary

result by the Hillians against Dulwich

Hamlet.

Whyteleafe returned to Ryman League football season

2014/15 by winning the Southern Counties east

premier division by 11 points. Major changes at the

stadium during the closed season included the installation

of a 3G pitch.

Their first season back was a great success with the

team finishing in 5 th spot unlucky to lose out in the

play-offs to Folkestone Invicta after conceding an

own goal and missing a penalty.


From the Chairman

So pleased to have reached the semi final of the Ryman League Cup. It's great for everyone

involved with the club. With our respective positions in recent years Faversham will start as favourites

and I know we have some players cup tied but the last game between us was close

and you never know! Let's hope we can take a large support with us.

Fantastic that the club has a player Josh Wisson in the England Schools squad and we wish

him every success. Let's have him back for the Semi !

Made the long trip to Worthing Saturday and I enjoyed the game if not the result. Bit of a weird

place in some ways with the new all weather pitch and a number of new supporters it feels like

a new club. You talk to some people who

know little about their club. First half was quiet

even and it was a blow to go in 1-0 down.

Started the second half and we were well on

top for a long period. Team had a nice balance

to it and subs were made at the right

time to maximum effect.

The second goal was a real killer, break

away against the run of play and so far offside

it was not even funny. The sort of Decision

you get when your near the top of the

league not near the bottom. Probably the only

major decision the officials had to make in

the whole game which is such a shame. After

that the third goal was very good but flattered

the score line. That was at worst a 0-1

defeat but before the second goal you got

the feeling we were going to score. Would

not swap anything at that club for ours but I

was jealous about a crowd over 600!

We still have a big job in the league for our

safety and these two back to back home

games we need to pick up some points. Welcome

to everyone tonight lets hope it's a

good game and the weather is kind to us.

Match Reports

By Tony Rickson

Battling Sittingbourne just failed in their bid to

preserve their unbeaten run as the New Year

kicked off under grey and wet skies.

Defeat by the only goal of a closely-contested

derby match ended a run of five games unbeaten

for Sittingbourne, and took Faversham up to the

top four of the Ryman South Division.

The defeat was so similar to many Sittingbourne

endured in the 13-match run that preceded their

recent good form.

Just by the odd goal, with little between the

teams, and Sittingbourne staging a late rally in a

frantic but unsuccessful search for an equaliser.

Let’s hope this derby defeat isn’t the start of another

poor run – though there looks to be a bit

more steel and grit about this current Sittingbourne

side.

They made just one change from the team that

hammered Ramsgate 4-0 last Monday, Jordan

Wells earning a starting place after his six-minute

hat-trick as a late substitute in that game.

Faversham won an important toss and chose to

play into the wind in the first half, which turned

out to be pretty even.

Jack Steventon was caught out one-on-one early

on by a midfield mistake and had to take a booking

for the team – 85 minutes is a long time to

hold out for a young defender without getting into

trouble again, but he made it.

The ever-running Miles Cornwell stretched the

Faversham defence the whole game, but he

failed with a couple of first half chances provided

by Wells. The first one was saved by the keeper

and the second Cornwell blasted over. He also

got on the end of a lovely run from halfway by

Steven Ita but his low cross into the area eluded

the supporting players.

The best chance of the half for Sittingbourne fell

to Josh Wisson following an Ita free-kick into the

box, but keeper Godmon rushed out to block the

teenager’s powerful shot.

Faversham went close with one header but

mainly seemed ready to bide their time and wait

for more opportunities to come their way with the

wind and driving rain behind them in the second

half.

And that’s the way it turned out as they took the

lead on 55 minutes following a throw-in on the

right. Robertson, who was so impressive for Faversham

against Sittingbourne last season, cut in

on goal and fired in a shot which goalkeeper Adam

Molloy saved. But he couldn’t hold onto the

ball in a crowded area and Matt Bourne, who

went to school in Sittingbourne and played a long

time for his home town club before joining Faversham,

swept in the rebound.

Sittingbourne responded well to the setback and

had most of the possession for the rest of the

half, going close but not close enough to an

equaliser.

Billy French headed wide from a corner, sub

Hicham Akhazzan shot over, Cornwell blasted

straight at the keeper and just failed to control a

Tom Brunt through ball when he would have

been in on goal, sub Dan Hughes shot wide

when nicely set up by Ita, and Ita himself fired in

a low shot which keeper Godmon did well to hold

onto under pressure.

So for Sittingbourne, all that endeavour in tiring

conditions produced no end result and a disappointing

finish to their recovery. But they’ve still

managed to put a good bit of distance between

themselves and the relegation-threatened bottom

three and should surely continue their climb

away from trouble if they maintain their current

commitment and determination.

Sittingbourne: Molloy, Brunt, Richardson,

French, Steventon, Wisson, Wright (Akhazzan

66 mins), Bankole (Wilkins 62 mins), Wells

(Hughes 79 mins), Cornwell, Ita.

Match Reports

By Tony Rickson

Wow, what a result as Sittingbourne stunned promotion-chasing

Ramsgate for the second time

this season, Jordan Wells’ six-minute hat-trick

completing a dazzling win.

Just two weeks ago Sittingbourne were third bottom

in Ryman South and without a point for

months, while Ramsgate – under former Brickies

managers Jim and Danny Ward – were riding

high in third place.

But if any proof was needed that Sittingbourne

had turned round their losing run, then this was it.

In front of their biggest home crowd for a couple

of seasons, Sittingbourne pulled off their biggest

home win for an even longer period.

Going into the match on the back of an excellent

unbeaten four-match run, Sittingbourne played

with passion and commitment, standing up to

some tough tackling, shackling two of the

league’s top scorers, and rounding it off with

some stunningly well-taken goals. It was quite a

day.

Sittingbourne went into this Bank Holiday Monday

fixture with just one change from the team that

battled bravely to a point at Dorking Wanderers a

couple of nights before Christmas, Billy French

replacing the injured George Crimmen in central

defence.

Ramsgate were missing the suspended Luke Girt

but still had four ex-Sittingbourne players in their

ranks – top scorer Joe Taylor, midfielders Ollie

Brown and Nick Treadwell, and winger Tom

Loynes.

In an even first half, Ramsgate had an early penalty

appeal rejected, and danger man Taylor shot

just wide and had a header brilliantly turned over

by Adam Molloy before the goalkeeper found out

the forward was offside anyway.

At the other end, Steven Ita was wide of the far

post following a Josh Wisson free-kick and Jono

Richardson headed over when well placed to

meet a left-wing corner.

Sittingbourne took the lead on 34 minutes with an

excellent goal. Wisson calmly started it in his own

half, finding Richardson who sent a long ball forward

for Dan Hughes. He exchanged passes with

Miles Cornwell, who gave him an excellent first

time return, and shot under keeper Watkins from

the middle of the penalty area.

Molloy was again in action, making a good diving

save to keep out Taylor’s effort, and keeping his

head when Treadwell got in close on goal for a

free-kick but could only stab it at the keeper.

To be fair, Ramsgate had a fair bit of possession

in the second half but Sittingbourne were determined

and steady in defence and dangerous on

the break, though for a long spell the final pass

just kept eluding them.

Molloy again did well when he raced off his line to

break up one attack but, generally, the defence in

front of him did well with French and young Jack

Steventon alongside him exceptional. Even the

normally outstanding Crimmen wasn’t missed.

Sittingbourne needed a second goal and they got

in the 87th minute when sub Hicham Akhazzan –

in his first appearance as a proud new dad –

cleverly found Cornwell beyond the far post and

he provided his second assist of the afternoon,

finding sub Wells in space to pick his spot in the

corner.

Ramsgate striker Pulman was sent off for his second

yellow card, both for dissent, and his colleagues,

who as a team had been under par all

afternoon, disintegrated.

Akhazzan and Wisson combined brilliantly down

the left and Wells was in the right place at the

near post to squeeze the ball over the line at the

second attempt.

And that wasn’t enough for the young striker, who

arrived from Folkestone in exchange for Harry

Smith and a nice little fee for Sittingbourne.

Who got the better deal as with Smith on the

bench at Folkestone, here Wells completed his

hat-trick in just six minutes, firing home when Stef

Wright picked him out after collecting a stray

clearance by the Ramsgate keeper?

That’s two excellent wins over Ramsgate this

season, and how pleased with themselves should

Sittingbourne be. All the usual suspects like Richardson,

Molloy, Tom Brunt etc, were excellent,

but so, too, were the youngsters. Steventon was

outstanding at the back and, for me, Wisson was

man of the match with a mature and committed

performance in the heat of the midfield battleground.

Sittingbourne: Molloy, Brunt, Richardson,

French, Steventon, Wisson, Wright, Bankole,

Hughes (Wells 70 mins), Cornwell, Ita (Akhazzan

82 mins)
