Good afternoon everyone and welcome to Woodstock Park. Our visitors are Whyteleafe. Welcome

to their Players, Officials and Supporters and this afternoons match officials.

Like us, Whyteleafe fell at the first post in the Emirates FA Cup to a team in a lower league. We,

of course lost to Pagham in a replay and Whyteleafe also lost in a replay, to Erith Town although

it took penalties to separate the teams. It will be interesting to see how both the victors

get on in today’s 1 st qualifying round.

Whyteleafe did the double over us last season, beating us 3-0. Both teams have started the

league season well and are unbeaten.

Our last match at home to Ashford United on Bank holiday Monday was a bit of a disappointment

after the previous match at Lewes. Having to play two games in soaring heat in three days

seemed to be just a bit too much. Despite not reaching the heights of the Lewes game we still

should have taken all three points. There were certainly enough chances but unfortunately none

taken.

We have signed two new players since last week. It’s a welcome back to Chris Elliott who

signed for us but left to join Ashford United,

September is a very busy month for us. By the end of it we will see how far we have progressed.

One plus of the two home games we have played so far is the good attendances. Hopefully today’s

will also be good,

At most away games you will be able to use the “Pundit” app, which is available on Android and

IOS, to listen to a commentary of the match. Pundit is also available on a Windows and Mac PC

( www.punditsports.com), Either Glen or me will be doing the commentary. We are however

looking for someone else to do commentary, particularly on home matches where generally

Glen and I are are too busy to do it. If you are interested just let one of us know.

Next up for Sittingbourne is a Kent Senior Cup match at Faversham on Tuesday night. Faversham

had a surprising 3-0 defeat to Herne Bay last year and have not started the season as

well as they would have liked. The match kicks off at Salters Lane at 7:45pm. That is followed

by an away match at Dartford FC where Thamesmead Town now play. This game is on a Sunday

(10 th September) and kicks off at 2:00pm. Then its another away match when we play on

Tuesday 12 th in a league match at Faversham. Next home match for Sittingbourne is on Saturday

16 th September when the visitors are VCD Athletic.

Meet the Whyteleafe Players

MANAGEMENT

Leigh Dynan – Manager

An ambitious, well-organised and driven manager

working hard to build a successful exciting

-to-watch side. Joined Whyteleafe from Farnborough

where he was assistant manager.

Koo Dumbuya – Assistant Manager

An exceptional coach who also run Hampton &

Richmond Borough’s Academy.

PLAYERS

Matte Pierson – goalkeeper

Joined Whyteleafe in the summer having started

2016-17 as Tooting & Mitcham no. 1. Injury

prevented him from playing much of last season

and Matte is looking strong and very capable

for 2017-18

Melvin Adesida – defender

Started as a youngster with QPR and developed

as an academy player at Nuneaton Borough

before gaining important experience with

Bedford Town, Melvin is another summer addition

to the squad playing at right back.

Ross comes to Whyteleafe from West Ham

Utd’s Academy.

Bentley Graham – midfield

A driving creative force in the heart of midfield

for a number of years at Church Road and (like

his dad) a former Whyteleafe Player of the

Year.

Shawn Clement-Peter – midfield/forward

An unmistakeable figure on the pitch, Shawn

can be a bustling presence in midfield but one

who can create chances from nowhere. Very

capable in the no. 10 position.

Sam Clayton – midfield/forward

Sam needs little introduction having been a

fans favourite both at Whyteleafe and at Kingstonian.

Exciting to watch both with his tricky

wing-play but also from the dead ball. Always

up amongst the team’s top goalscorers.

Lanre Azeez – midfield/forward

A right winger whose explosive electric pace

can undo any defence. Lanre also likes to get

his name on the scoresheet.

Jahmal Mundle-Howlett - defender

A cultured, calm, cultured and quick thinking

centre back. An old head on young shoulders

and made captain for the 2017-18 season.

Terrell Forbes – defender

Vastly experienced central defender who made

over a hundred appearances with QPR, 163

with Yeovil and 73 with Leyton Orient as well as

spells with other professional clubs including

Grimsby, Oldham and Chesterfield.

John Scarborough – defender

Elder statesman in the team but still a huge influence

in the heart of defence. Plenty of experience

playing at Conference level mainly with

Sutton United and Welling.

Andrew Musungu – defender/midfield

Although naturally a winger Andrew has proven

to be strong and vigorous left back and one

who still loves to make exciting runs forward

with the ball.

Ross Elsom – midfield

A new face arriving in the summer of 2017,

Jerry Amoo – midfield/forward

Skilful winger and a hot young prospect – a

product of West Ham’s youth system.

Andy Somo – forward

Very impressive in pre-season, an athletic,

pacey and driven young striker.

Charlie Postance – forward

Charlie made his name as top scorer in the

Combined Counties League scoring 36 goals in

2016-17 and clearing up the end of season

awards at Knaphill. Now is his time to step up a

league and rattle in goals in the Bostik League.

A proper centre forward.

Daniel Ajakaiye – forward

Daniel’s pace and eye for goal are frightening.

Born to score goals leaving markers in his dust.

He is sure to be among the team’s top scorers

again this season if not the League’s.

The Programme Editor

A warm welcome to Whyteleafe.

Isn’t it great that now we are disappointed when we draw and this is because of how well the

team has gelled. Its amazing to think that that this is practically a brand new team that has had

only been together for 5 competitive games. Nick and Tony have done a brilliant job and who

knows that with the possibility of additional promotion places being available at the end of the

season we could be in contention. Whyteleafe of course are also unbeaten so far this season

so today wont be easy for us.

Whyteleafe have an excellent 3G pitch but it does seem that some clubs are having problems

with theirs, the latest being Worthing

whose 3g pitch has failed an FA inspection

and they will have to play at least 1 “home”

game at Bognor. Still we live in hope that

one day we might have a 3G (or 4G) pitch

ourselves!

Being programme editor can be time consuming

and unexpected problems don’t

help, such as the one with my printer that I

wrote about in the last programme. However

despite what many women say men

can multitask as I aim to prove by the pic of

me producing this programme whilst baby

sitting! (Excuse the legs).

We had a committee meeting on Wednesday

and the new requirement for dressing rooms to be of a minimum

size of 18 sq metres by 31st March 2019 came up. Our

dressing rooms don’t quite meet that size and so we have to find

a way of either enlarging the existing ones (which is possible but

they also require upgrading) or building new ones. We are now

looking at refurbishing the lower building by gutting it and building

new dressing rooms in the structure. To do this obviously we

need money and so we are looking at getting a grant...but grants are only for 50% of the build

so we will need to find the extra money from somewhere. We are therefore going to look at

crowd funding. So please look out for further news on this and if you are able, give a little bit

please! I started the “Buy a Brick” some years back when we were in trouble and you all responded

brilliantly so we have high hopes. Incidentally the “bricks” can still be found from a link

on the web site.

Ive got to say that since we bought Jace Media on board there have been a lot of positive developments.

We are lucky that both Glen and Mick are crazy about this level of football and us

in particular and their expertise on the commercial side has been invaluable, with more announcements

to come!

I believe that these are exciting times for the club!

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 re-organisation 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

owner-chairman (as opposed to electedchairman).

.


Whyteleafe-History Cont

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.

Leafe struggled to repeat this achievement the

following year and in 2016, John Fowler decided

he had taken the team as far as he could

and stood down. Former Farnborough assistant

manager Leigh Dynan took over in October

and began a period of major squad reconstruction.

Bostik League South

Lewes 2 Sittingbourne 2, att 446

Sittingbourne continued their unbeaten start to

the Bostik League South season with what I for

one thought was an outstanding team performance

in sunny Sussex.

So where to start? With:

The popular Tommy Loynes rejoining Sittingbourne

the day before and celebrating his

return with an excellent goal.

Or:

Harry Brooks coming in for his debut in goal

when first choice keeper Darren Hawkes

dropped out with a back injury and pulling off

two spectacular second half saves.

Or:

Sittingbourne having a great chance to win it

with virtually the last kick of the game only for a

shot to roll agonisingly wide of an almost open

goal.

Lewes went into the match unbeaten and – like

Sittingbourne – with a two-out-of-two winning

start to the league season.

But it was the Brickies who almost totally dominated

the first half with an excellent display of

determined and enterprising football.

They’d suffered disruption before the game

when Hawkes showed he’d failed to recover

from a back problem, with Brooks thrown in at

the deep end.

The only other change from the team that lost in

the FA Cup in midweek to Pagham was the return

of Loynes to the side in place of Lawson

Okimeji.

Sittingbourne began brightly on a lovely pitch in

front of a good-sized

450 crowd – though it was only the Brickies

fans who made the noise throughout.

And they took an early lead when a corner was

only half-cleared and Laurence Ball headed a

pass to Kane Rowland in space on the left. His

terrific cross beat all the defence and skipper

Ben Gorham ran in for a simple headed goal

from a couple of yards out.

Lewes took only a couple of minutes to equalise,

forcing a corner from virtually their first attack.

Gorham headed clear but Bosma, on the

edge of the box, volleyed it first time into the far

corner with an outstanding strike.

Sittingbourne hassled Lewes out of possession

all over the pitch and were well on top the rest

of the half. Rowland – who was terrific all game

– went close, as did Loynes and David Smith,

and I thought Rowland was fouled as he tried to

break clear of the last defenders.

The Brickies lost Ball to a first half injury but Lex

Allan was a capable replacement and made a

terrific block on a Lewes shot as the home side

began to make more headway in the second

half.

Keeper Brooks suddenly had more to do and

after tipping a shot away for a corner he made a

terrific save from a close-range header, diving

instinctively to his right to keep it out.

But Sittingbourne were also dangerous going

forward and regained the lead midway through

the half when Loynes dummied a defender to

make room for himself on the edge of the area

and then hit his shot through a crowded area to

watch it go in off the far post.

A lot of the Sittingbourne success up till their

last 15 minutes came from quickly closing down

players in possession but perhaps they began

to tire slightly in the heat of the afternoon.

So Conlon was given too much room for Lewes

10 minutes later and advanced to equalise with

a good shot into the far corner.

Even then there was drama as both sides went

for the winner.

Smith’s clever shot was well tipped away by the

keeper at one end and then sub Gil Carvalho

was penalised for an aerial challenge on the

edge of his own area in the 90th minute. Brotherton’s

powerful free-kick beat the wall but

Brooks was equal to it with a truly brilliant save.

Back went Sittingbourne and when the keeper

saved at full stretch from sub Miles Cornwell he

was still struggling to get up as the rebound fell

invitingly for Smith. But his attempt to sidefoot

the ball first time into the huge gap at the near

post was just inches wide.

So both sides lost their 100 per cent league records

but maintained their unbeaten starts, Sittingbourne

bouncing back impressively from the

midweek FA Cup disappointment to show they

should be a force this season if they keep up

this level of play.

Sittingbourne: Harry Brooks, Chris Webber,

Ollie Brown, Tyrone Guthrie, Ben Gorham, Laurence

Ball (Lex Allan, 39 min), Kane Phillip, Bola

Dowadu, Kane Rowland (Miles Cornwell, 80

min), Tommy Loynes (Gil Carvalho, 69 min),

David Smith. Subs not used: David Adekoya,

Bostilk League South

Sittingbourne 0 Ashford Utd 0, att 207

This goalless draw meant Sittingbourne completed their first four Bostik League games of the

season unbeaten – with two wins and two draws.

Highly respectable, of course, and exactly the same as their total at this stage of last season.

But there was a strong feeling that this was a couple of points short of what they should have

had, especially as newly-promoted Ashford came to Sittingbourne without a point and after

conceding five goals on their own pitch just 48 hours earlier.

Sittingbourne had a couple of efforts cleared off the line, and also hit the bar near the end, but

generally their finishing wasn’t accurate enough with too many chances blazed over the bar.

Even though it ended 0-0, neither keeper really had many saves to make, though to be fair

this was a second tiring game in 48 hours for both teams, and this one was played out in a

stifling near 30 degree heat.

Sittingbourne had to shuffle their team after Saturday’s excellent 2-2 draw at Lewes, with Laurence

Ball out with damaged ribs, and Ollie Brown and Kane Phillip sitting it out with knocks,

though both impressed as second half substitutes. Harry Brooks kept his place in goal after

an impressive debut, even though Daren Hawkes was fit.

The injury jinx extended into the game with midfielder Tyrone Guthrie hobbling off early on,

Tommy Loynes having to drop back into midfield on his return after rejoining Sittingbourne on

Friday.

Ashford seemed to show no ill effects from their traumatising start to the season and had the

best two chances of the first half, Howland hitting a great chance over the bar and Kingwell

advancing from the back before narrowly missing the far post. Brooks also made a good save

from a powerful 25-yarder by Woodcock.

At the other end Chris Webber volleyed over, Kane Rowland had a header cleared off the

line, David Smith shot narrowly over the bar and Gil Carvalho just failed to make contact with

a low Rowland cross into the six-yard box.

Just as in the previous home game when Sittingbourne failed to break down a packed Pagham

defence in the FA Cup, it was tough going to create chances for a while in the second

half.

But the introduction of the elusive Phillip caused extra problems for Ashford and the chances

began to flow.

Carvalho had a shot cleared off the line, Rowland had a header deflected over the bar, Phillip

shot narrowly wide, Miles Cornwell had his effort blocked as he closed in on a great chance

and Ben Gorham hit the bar with a lob.

But the chance of the game went to Cornwell deep into the eight minutes of added time, timing

his run beautifully to meet Carvalho’s cross only to head over from close range.

After a high tempo game on Saturday, it was asking a lot for Sittingbourne to match that intensity

again, and in such warm weather.

But they finished with a flurry and in the end they failed to take all three points because although

they created sufficient chances their finishing wasn’t as clinical as it needed to be.

Sittingbourne: Harry Brooks, David Adekoya, Chris Webber, Tyrone Guthrie (Miles Cornwell,

6 min), Ben Gorham, Lex Allan, Gil Carvalho, Bola Dowadu, Kane Rowland (Ollie Brown, 69

min), Tommy Loynes (Kane Phillip,

66 min), David Smith. Subs not used: George Blake, Daren Hawkes.
