John’s Jottings

Welcome to Woodstock Park from The Club Secretary

Good afternoon everyone, welcome to Woodstock Park.

Our visitors are Three Bridges. Welcome to them and this afternoons match officials.

Both of today’s teams played on Tuesday evening. Three Bridges played Dorking Wanderers.

Dorking Wanderers lived up to being the form team of the league by scoring six goals against

The Bridges. We visited East Grinstead Town in a match that was important to both sides in

their quest to get distance between themselves and the relegation places. The first half was fairly

even but the second half very much belonged to the Brickies. Steven Ita and Jack Steventon

scored and Steven had a penalty saved . I thought this was one of the best halves I have seen

a Sittingbourne team play this season. This put the Brickies in 17th place, 16 points ahead of

the last relegation spot. Three Bridges are now just one place above us but they have 6 points

more and have two games in hand over us.

Last Saturday we visited run away leaders Folkestone Invicta. Although the final score was 3-1

in favour of the home side this was a good performance from Sittingbourne. We dominated the

first half and really should have gone into the break 3-0;up. Only the fine goalkeeping of ex

Brickie Tim Roberts kept Invicta in the game. As it was Miles Cornwell scored the first goal of

the game a minute before half time. Folkestone Invicta came out for the second half more determined.

The difference between the teams was the finishing and three excellent finishes saw the

league leaders home. Like the first match this season between the two sides Sittingbourne deserved

at least a draw,

Before Folkestone we visited Walton & Hersham a team we had played only a few days before

and drew 2-2 with. The away game though very much sprung the Brickies way when in the 30th

minute Walton & Hersham's s Michael Salako was sent off for a push on Stefan Wright. After

that Sittingbourne controlled the game and goals from Steven Ita and Hicham Akhazzan ensured

that the three points came back home with them. The future for Walton & Hersham is uncertain

as the local council intend to develop Stompond Lane and want Walton & Hersham to

ground share with Walton Casuals - something neither team want. I have many memories of

Stompond Lane when Dave Bassett was captain of a side managed by Alan Batsford sadly no

longer with us. This side went on block to Wimbledon and formed the original crazy gang. The

terraces were full then and I saw many exciting games there.

Next match for Sittingbourne is at Tooting & Mitcham, a team that I thought were one of the best

we have played this season. Following that we have what is probably our most important game

of the season when we are away on Tuesday 1st March to Faversham Town in the semi final of

the Alan Turvey Trophy sponsored by Robert Dyas, a game that I know none of our supporters

will want to miss!

From the Manager

I write these notes on what has been a decent run of form.

I thought against Folkestone last week we were outstanding for the first half and

should have found ourselves 3 -0 up but never took the two fantastic chances that

were presented to us. On to Tuesday and maybe, other than the first 15 minutes of

the first half, I think we were fairly comfortable throughout and it was a solid performance.

From our last 11 games we have managed 17 points and during that time we have

played 5 of the top 6, and with 11 league games to go we hope to replicate this

points total and push on up the table to a more respectable mid table finish.

To still be in a cup this time of year is fantastic and to have a Kent derby in a semifinal

makes it all the more exciting. Please do try to come and support us away at

Faversham on the 1 st March and help our young squad make history.

Nick

THREE BRIDGES — A BRIEF HISTORY

Founded in 1901, Three Bridges joined

the Mid Sussex Football League in 1902

and were Champions of that League for

the first time in the 1907/08 season.

Their first major success came in

1933/34, when they won the Sussex

Junior Cup, and sundry other minor honours

came their way before they joined

the Sussex County Football

League in 1952/53, and two years later

were crowned Second Division Champions.

In 1962/63 they won the Division Two Invitation

Cup and in 1968/69, 1973/74

and 1979/80 were Second Division Runners

Up.

1970/71 produced an against the odds

triumph when winning the League’s Invitation

Cup against Southwick (3-2).

The 80’s heralded a run of successes,

starting with reaching the last sixteen of

the F.A.Vase for the first time in 1981/82

before losing at Molesey (1-2).

A season later they made it to the last 32

but also won the Sussex RUR Charity

Cup for the first time, beating Hastings

Town 3-2.

Another year on saw them finish runners

up in the Thorn EMI National Six-a-Side

Tournament, winning a set of floodlights.

1985/86 saw them finish as County

League First Division runners up, a feat

they repeated in both 1987/88 (when

they also won the RUR Cup again) and

1988/89.

A fire destroyed their clubhouse in 1993

which re-focused their priorities and ultimately

resulted in relegation in 1996/97.

They won the Division Two League Cup

a season later and then finished runners

up in the Second Division to regain Division

One status.

They were RUR Cup runners up in

2003/04 and then winners of that same

prestigious trophy in 2007/08.

In season 2010/11 hopes were high

when they started by winning their first

nine League games, but eventually finished

the season in fifth place, however

they did win the John

O’Hara League Challenge Cup for the

first time that season, beating Rye United

2-1,a tremendous feat that they

achieved again in 2011/12, this time AFC

Uckfield being defeated 2-1.

It looked like being another tough

League campaign when they lost four of

the first nine matches, but then lost only

one of the remaining 29 games, which

was concluded by beating Championship

rivals Rye United 1-0 at home on the final

day of the season!

This tremendous run meant the club had

achieved its ambition and become Sussex

County F.L. Champions. With a superb

run in the F.A.Vase too, losing in the

last 32 on a penalty shoot out with Derbyshire

side Gresley F.C,the 2011/12

‘Double’ season had undoubtedly been

the best in Three Bridges’ history.

Their first season in the Ryman Isthmian

Football League South Division saw

them struggle for much of the time. But,

having been ten points adrift at the bottom

of the table in mid February, they

went on a run of eleven matches that

produced seven victories, two draws and

just two defeats, earning them Team of

the Month Awards in both March and

April as a result. It meant that they survived

the drop, but their second season

in the Ryman League saw them struggle

at times again. However, some key signings

midway through the season helped

them to nineteenth place. Season

2014/15 saw them reach their highest

position in the period finishing 7th in the

Ryman League division 1 South table.


From the Programme editor

First of all I’ll start with news of a team that we used to play on a regular basis in our Southern league

Days. We though that our dip in form earlier in the season was bad but spare a thought for Bashley

Town now in the Evo Stick League Southern Division 1. They have finally picked up their first league

point of the season . Bash had lost all 26 of their previous league matches before their 0-0 draw Tuesday

night at home to Mangotsfield Utd.

This is however not a unique record at our level as in the Evo Stick NPL Division 1 north New Mills also

picked up their first point of the season!!

Nice to see that the referee of our away game against Walton & Hersham was correct in dismissing the

Swans penalty shout as the video of the match clearly shows that Salako dived. He of course paid a

price for this by being sent off when he pushed over Stefan Wright just after.

Its time to look at who might be in our league next season—although in the past few seasons we have

got a letter from the FA saying that it cant be guaranteed what league we will be in next season so you

could argue that we don’t know if we will still be in this league next season! Hollands & Blair, where ex

Brickie Clint Gooding is assistant manager, are riding high top of the Southern Counties East Football

league 6 points clear of Greenwich Borough who however

have two games in hand. Greenwich Borough have

something of a reputation for “splashing the cash” at the

moment! So it could be that Hollands & Blair will take

the place of Whitstable Town next season (If Whitstable

fail to get out of their desparate situation), at least (at a

pinch) I can walk to their ground!!

In third place is Ashford Utd managed by ex Brickie Danny

Lye. Ashford Utd are going great guns in the FA Vase

having just beaten Dunston UTS FC in a replay to reach

the quarter finals where they have been drawn away to

Salisbury. Strange to see Salisbury and Hereford in that

draw. Salisbury are top of the Wessex league.

We of course have played both Salisbury and Hereford

in years gone by. Salisbury City reached the Conference

before being “removed” for failing to pay their debts.

They were reformed as Salisbury FC this season. Salisbury

FC continue to play at the Raymond McEnhill stadium.

Hereford are another club that reformed (as of course

are Ashford Utd). They were founded in 2014 as a phoenix

club for Hereford United, and inherited their Edgar

Street stadium.

Perhaps the moral of this story is get loads of debt, then

reform!!!

EQUALITY -

zero tolerance approach against racism and all forms of discrimination. Accordingly any

form of discriminatory abuse whether it be based on race or ethnicity, sexual orientation,

Match Reports

By Tony Rickson

In front of by far the biggest crowd they’ve

played in front of this season, Sittingbourne

had to accept a third successive league defeat,

and they haven’t scored in any of those matches

either.

For all their skills and accurate passing

Worthing didn’t create that much in the first

half, Sittingbourne joining in by stroking the ball

around on the accurate surface whenever they

actually got hold of it.

Sittingbourne chucked everything at Worthing

in the second half, though in so doing it also

cost them the game as they were twice cuaght

on the break to score their second and third

goals and give the final score a more flattering

look.

Sittingbourne: Molloy, Naessens, Lee

(Brunt, 51 min), Steventon, Crimmen, Richardson,

Wright (Ita, 57 min), Algar (Bankole, 57

min), Irvine, Hughes, Akhazzan.

And now they know – though to be honest, it

didn’t feel that good as surely this was a game

they should have won.Sittingbourne led twice

but for the third time in a week conceded two

secondhalf goals and this time they ended up

with just a share of the points.

They created more chances than probably in

any game this season but their finishing wasn’t

clinical enough, and when they were on target

towards the end Walton’s keeper pulled off a

couple of spectacular saves.

Walton are just a place behind Sittingbourne in

the league and after a poor run of results were

clearly delighted to at least take a point home

as they fight their own battle against being

drawn into the relegation fight.

Sittingbourne: Molloy, Naessens, Richardson,

Steventon, Crimmen, Wisson, Akhazzan,

Bankole, Cornwell (Wells 84 mins), Hughes

(Irvine 72 mins), Ita (Wright 64 mins)

Walton & Hersham 0 Sittingbourne 2

9th February 2016, att 80—By Peter Pitts

Sittingbourne 3 Whyteleafe 2 ,

2nd February 2016, att 101

What an important win for Sittingbourne, their

first of this year and completing an excellent

double over Whyteleafe this season. But this

was Sittingbourne and they couldn’t resist doing

it the hard way, going from cruising at 3-0

to hanging on grimly at 3-2.

Hang on they did, and in the end they got their

reward for some decent attacking football and

some nicely-taken goals when they were in the

ascendancy.

Congratulations to Hicham Akhazzan who

made his 400th appearance for the Brickies

and celebrated by scoring.

Sittingbourne: Molloy, Naessens, Richardson,

Steventon, Crimmen, Wisson, Akhazzan,

Bankole, Cornwell, Hughes (Wells, 88 min),

Ita (Wright, 75 min)

Sittingbourne 2 Walton & Hersham 2,

6th February 2016, att 105

A two goal victory for the Brickies with the two

goals coming from the twin threat of Hicham

Akhazzan and Steven Ita, Ita scoring the first

from Akhazzan's cross and the second a reversal

of this when Akhazzan struck the ball into

the net from Ita's cross to make him the Brickies

leading scorer so far this season.

The game swung in Sittingbourne's favour on

38 minutes when Michael Salako raced away

and fell over in the Brickies area, the shouts of

penalty fell on deaf ears and no doubt still upset

at the decision Salako pushed Wright over

and the referee had no option but to show the

red card.

The swans battled well and Adam Molloy did

brilliantly to tip a free kick on the post, but

Akhazzan's goal on 78 minutes meant there

was no way back for the home side.

Sittingbourne: Molloy, Wright, Carlse,

Whibley, Crimmen, Steventon, Akhazzan,

Bankole, Irvine (Cornwell 56 mins), Wells

(Hughes 66 mins), Ita (Algar 81 mins), subs

not used Algar, Davis

All season, Sittingbourne had yet to find out

what it felt like to draw a home league game.

Match Reports

Saturday 13th February 2016

Ryman Div 1 South

Folkestone Invicta 3 Sittingbourne 1, att

352

Hard work by the Folkestone ground staff

made sure that this game went ahead and

in the end the league leaders gained all 3

points, but it could have been so different if

Invicta keeper Tim Roberts hadn’t have

made two excellent blocks from Miles Cornwell

when each time it looked odds on that

he would score, and this would have given

them a 3-0 half time lead. But it was not to

be as Invicta scored 3 second half goals to

clinch a 3-1 win.

The Brickies made two changes from the

team that defeated Walton & Hersham with

Miles Cornwell and Dan Hughes in for Jordan

Wells and Andy Irvine who were on the

bench. Tom Carlse and Scott Whibley had

their second starts for the club and showed

that they are excellent acquisitions to the

team with solid performances and all in all

this was gutsy performance by Sittingbourne

and a score-line that flattered

Invicta.

Sittingbourne started well and could have

taken the lead inside 5 minutes when Cornwell

found himself with just Roberts to beat

but the shot hit the keeper and rebounded

for a corner. 5 minutes later Steven Ita’s

pass split the Invicta defence to give Cornwell

another 1 to 1 with Roberts but again

the keeper came out on top.

Invicta’s first threat came on 13 minutes

with a shot that flew across the goal line.

It was comedy time on 23 minutes when

Molloy missed his punch, the ball falling to

an Invicta player who skewed his shot over

the bar.

As the pitch was starting to cut up the game

became something of a lottery with both

sets of players having trouble keeping their

feet.

Ex Brickie Harry Smith had a shot hit the

post but it was the Brickies who took the

lead just a minute before half time after the

ball was punted up the pitch to the waiting

Cornwell who this time found the net, but

the lead didn’t last long as with the second

half just 5 minutes old Invicta’s Ian Draycott

was first to react to the ball when it was

crossed into the Brickies area and he struck

the ball first time into the net to make it 1-1.

Sittingbourne’s Ollie Bankole then had a

tremendous shot that Roberts turned round

a post, but Invicta went one better on 60

minutes when a cross to the far post was

met by Callum Wright sliding in and he just

beat Molloy to the ball, injuring the Brickies

keeper in the process.

Sittingbourne were still well in the game

and from a short corner Ita found Carlse

who fired the ball agonisingly wide. However

in the 80 the minute the ball was lost by

Sittingbourne in mid field and the broke to

Smith raced away and curled it round

Molloy and into the net to secure all 3

points for Invicta and keep their 14 points

advantage at the top of the league. Sittingbourne

remain 17th with all of the teams

below them also losing.

Sittingbourne: Molloy, Wright, Carlse,

Whibly, Crimmen, Steventon, Akhazzan
