The Secretary’s Jottings

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

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

Hythe had an excellent 3-0 victory over Faversham Town on Saturday and are now unbeaten in the

last five matches they have played. The loss of Kenny Pogue who scored 21 goals in 50 games for

Hythe has been compensated for by the signing of ex Corinthian Casuals striker, Jerson Dos Santos.

Another player to look out for is Dean Grant who scored all three goals against Faversham.

I want now to congratulate Nick and the Team because we are top of the respect league (table later

on in the programme). This is a tremendous achievement as Sittingbourne as a club wants everyone

to enjoy their time at our ground and that includes the officials who, in the main, do a fantastic

job!

On Tuesday, we played Ramsgate in the Velocity Trophy (League Cup). The first half was fairly

even although Ramsgate did not really trouble Harry Brooks in The Brickies goal. We stepped up a

gear in the second half and put on a great attacking show. The goal by Tyrone Guthrie was as good

as you will see anywhere. Certainly, a great way to get off the mark for your club. The second was

scored by Lawrence Ball and it was good to see him back after a spell out with injury.

Of course, everyone is asking if we can keep up the results well the last few games have been very

encouraging in both results and performances. Today will be a big test of how good we really are

playing a team who are now up to eighth and adding the extra spice of the match being a local derby.

It’s been good to speak to a number of new supporters and supporters who have not been to a Sittingbourne

match for some time. It seems the word is getting around that we have an exciting team

to watch and one with a real chance of promotion this season.

We have replica shirts for sale again today. They come in a number of sizes and are priced at

£25.00 for larger sizes and £20.00 for junior sizes. Also, black “T” shirts with the Sittingbourne

badge on them are priced at £6.00 and club pennants are for sale priced £5.50. See me or Glen if

you are interested. I also have some official new old design Chelseas shirts (Samsung sponsor)

which are just £5.00 each.

Next Tuesday we have yet another Kent derby when we play our return match at Herne Bay. Herne

Bay are probably the most improved team in the league and have had some impressive results recently.

Added to this they of course have our old Under 23 managers in charge of them and a number

of ex Sittingbourne players. Kick off at Winch’s Field is 7:45pm. This match is the first of three

consecutive away games. Next Saturday is a Buildbase FA Trophy tie at Ashford United. The Saturday

after we visit newcomers to the league, Shoreham

We are next here on Saturday 21 st October when we entertain Chipstead.

Enjoy the game!

The Programme Editor

As the secretary has said in his notes its great to see some new faces at the ground . Please

keep on spreading the word.

It’s a strange local football world when Ray Turner, Faversham Town’s manager, is quoted on

Kentonline Sport as saying he is not going to quit. The piece says that Faversham have lost 6

of their last 8 games in the league and are just 3 points off the bottom of the league. Turner has

been manager since 2011 and those of us who know him recognise that he is a good manager

who will surely move Faversham away from the bottom. It’s a good job that here at Sittingbourne

we have always given managers a chance to recover from poor form and I’m sure

that Faversham will do the same.

A piece of non league history happened earlier this month when Walton & Hersham’s ground,

Stompond Lane, finally closed and it is now set to become a housing development.

The Swans will now (reluctantly) share with Walton Casuals at their newly refurbished ground,

the Waterside Stadium. This is particularly poignant for the club secretary and myself as when

we lived in Hampton Middlesex Stompond Lane was our second favourite non league ground,

the first being Hampton’s Beveree, (now Hampton & Richmond). We saw some epic encounters

at Stompond Lane including famous FA cup victories over league clubs such as Exeter.

We also saw the Swans defeat Bryan Clough’s Brighton at Brighton in the FA Cup! The Swans

had a very strong side in those days including Dave Bassett on the wing. Their manager at the

time, Alan Batsford, went onto manage Wimbledon and it was mix of Walton & Hersham ex

players and new players who Batsford took into the league . Those were also the days when it

was often more lucrative for players to stay in the non league game than join a lower league

club.

My latest memory of Stompond Lane was a visit a couple of

years ago when the boardroom host was Theo Paphitis of

Dragon’s Den fame and the Ryman boss. There was only a

few of us in the boardroom including the lawyer Michael

Mansfield, who has been involved in some very high profile

cases. So I can say

that Theo Paphitis

has served me coffee!

Our visitors today

have a great cartoon

character and I think

we should have

something based on

a brick. So if there

are any budding cartoonists

out there

then draw something

up and send it

Hythe Town—A Brief History

Hythe Town Football Club was formed in August

1910 although football in Hythe can be

traced back into the previous century.

The club joined the Folkestone and District

Leagues and after the First World War had

some success, four championships and only

once outside the top three in fourteen seasons.

They moved up into the Kent Amateur League

in 1936 and were promoted into Division One

before the Second World War intervened.

The 50s and 60s saw little league success but

that changed in the early 70s with three successive

league titles and a Kent Junior Cup

win. Hythe were granted senior status and

elected into the Kent League in 1977, playing

at the newly acquired Reachfields, an old army

sports ground on the edge of the town’s firing

ranges.

The club were runners-up in the Kent League

on three occasions but it was not until property

developer Tony Walton took over Hythe Town

in February 1988 that things really started to

happen.

That summer saw the ground developed to

Southern League standard with seats and a

social club, with viewing balconies, above new

dressing rooms. Standing cover extended behind

one goal and for the whole of the far side,

and floodlights were installed. The ground capacity

still remains at 3,000 with the majority

under cover.

The chairman proved to be a high-profile character

who attracted much media attention with

his high spending on the ground and team.

Town won the 1988-9 Kent League title by 14

points and set a league record of 133 goals.

The club gained promotion to the Southern

League.

The next season saw another promotion as the

main aim, but the club’s great run to the FA

Vase semi-finals handicapped their league ambitions,

with four games a week at times, and a

sixth place finish. Hythe lost out to the eventual

Vase winners Yeading, winning the home leg 3

-2 in front of the club’s record attendance of

2,147, but cruelly losing the second leg 2-0

with the crucial goal coming from a big deflection.

They did win the Eastern Professional

Floodlight Cup at their first attempt.

The following season was very similar, topping

the table in November but runs in four cups

again caused fixture congestion and a final

placing of eighth. Hythe lost out to Trowbridge

Town in a Vase quarter-final second replay,

lost to Chelmsford City over two legs in the

Southern League Cup final, but won the Kent

Senior Trophy and retained the Eastern Professional

Floodlight Cup. The club played 40

league games and 33 cup ties.

In 1991/2 Hythe again topped the table in the

early months but the money was beginning to

run out. With little cup success, the exit from

the Vase at Evesham United in February saw

many of the team sold and their replacements

could only finish thirteenth. the club did reach

the final of the Kent Senior Cup, losing in extra

-time to Bromley at Gillingham’s Priestfield Stadium.

That match proved to be Walton’s last

game, and he put the club into liquidation soon

after.

Supporters rallied round and entered a scratch

side, as Hythe United, into the following season’s

Kent County League and negotiated continued

use of Reachfields Stadium.

After three seasons the club regained senior

status and in 1995 were elected back into the

Kent League but the club would struggle for a

number of seasons in the wrong half of the table.

In 2001 Hythe dropped the “United” suffix,

reverting to “Town” and in November 2002 appointed

Paul Fisk as Manager.

This proved a turning point and Hythe became

a top six club. There was one exception, in

2005/6, when again the Vase was a distraction,

winning five ties before going out to Winchester

City in the fourth round, in front of 441

spectators at Reachfields.

In season 2007/8 Hythe forced themselves to

the top of the table in March and were considered

to be favourites for the title. Disappointment

was acute therefore when form was lost

in the final weeks and the side not only slipped

to fourth place, but also lost in the final of the

League Cup.

The highlight was a fantastic FA Cup win over

Andy Hessenthaler’s Dover Athletic before a

crowd of 1,109 at Reachfields, and achieving

the important Ryman League ground grading.

Continued on the next page


The club achieved runners-up spot the following

season and then Scott Porter, who had been

Paul Fisk’s assistant manager, took over as

manager for the 2009/10 season with Clive

Cook as his assistant. There were many good

results but too many dropped points saw Hythe

finish in third position. Town also progressed

through three rounds of the FA Cup to be drawn

against the full-time professionals of Woking

who were relieved to escape with a replay after

an exciting 2-2 draw at Reachfields. The replay

was another tight match until the last few

minutes when Woking scored three times to go

through 5-1.

The 2010/11 season was possibly the most

successful in the history of the club, with Scott

Porter and leading the playing side to the Kent

League Championship for the first time in over

twenty years, and with it promotion to the Ryman

League. After a 22-match unbeaten run in

the new-year, dropped points over Easter took

the championship to the wire and the league

was clinched in dramatic style on the last day of

the season through a last-minute equaliser at

Tunbridge Wells.

This amazing achievement was coupled with

the club’s best ever F.A. Cup run, and the best

for any Kent League side in over 50 years.

Hythe negotiated their way through six rounds,

including memorable wins over higher league

opposition at

Concord

Rangers of

the Ryman

Premier and

at home to

Staines Town

of the Blue

Square Bet

South. The

prize was an

away draw in

the First

Round Proper

to League

Two side Hereford

United.

It was one

round too far

on the pitch,

the hosts

comfortably

winning 5-1

with Gary

Hythe Town—History Cont

Mickelborough getting the Hythe goal.

During the 2011/2 season the club maintained

their progress and finished in eighth place in

Ryman Division One South. Hythe were also

able to get their hands on some silverware as

wins over Ebbsfleet United and Dover Athletic

were followed by a single goal victory in the final

at Dartford to win the Kent Senior Cup.

The following season ended with a 17-match

unbeaten run and a fourth place finish. This

brought about the club’s first play-off appearance,

unfortunately losing at Faversham Town

in the semi-final.

After another eighth place finish Scott Porter

and Clive Cook left the club at the end of

2013/4 and Tim Dixon was appointed as manager

in May 2014. It was a disappointing season

that saw the club finish in 16 th position and

after a poor start to 2015-6 the club decided to

part company with Dixon in September.

Clive Cook returned to take over, this time as

manager and led a remarkable turnaround from

22 nd place to fourth as the club qualified for the

Ryman South play-offs for a second time. Defeat

followed at Worthing in the semi-final.

The club ended just outside the play-off zone

last season and will look for an improved position

this year.

Bostik League South

Sittingbourne 3 VCD 2 att 147

When the final whistle blew after recent home

wins over Herne Bay and Whyteleafe, Sittingbourne

players leapt in the air whooping

their delight.

Their reaction to this win, which maintains their

unbeaten home record in the league this season,

was altogether different and far more restrained.

They even looked a little sheepish, for this was

by far from a vintage Sittingbourne performance

against quite talented and awkward opponents.

But a win’s a win, it’s three points whether you

play well or badly, and the victory takes them

back up to fifth in the Bostik South League table.

For this match, squeezed in between sunshine

and showers, Sittingbourne made just one

change from the starting line-up on Tuesday,

when their unbeaten start to the season was

ended at Faversham. Back came David Smith

out wide, with Tom Loynes reverting to the No

10 role, and George Blake dropping down to

substitute.

VCD had let in more goals in the division this

season than any other team, and they showed

why with just a minute played. Chris Eliiott hit a

free-kick into the area and while the visiting defence

hesitated, top scorer Bola Dawodu was

left completely unmarked to head easily home.

The north Kent side hadn’t even got the ball out

of their own half at that stage, but it only took

them five minutes to equalise, Darboe converting

a right-wing cross at the far post.

Sittingbourne went close to restoring their lead

with Smith volleying wide and Kane Rowland

heading just over, but VCD were well in the

game the rest of the first half and Daren

Hawkes had to make a smart tip-over from

Baker’s header.

VCD were giving the Sittingbourne defence

quite a test, one of the toughest they’ve had

this season, but they stood up to it well and

went in front again nine minutes into the second

half.

Kane Phillip crossed from the right and with

Loynes pressing from behind, VCD captain

Duncan could only head his attempted clearance

beyond his own keeper into the net.

There was a welcome return to action as substitute

by Miles Cornwell and he immediately

opened up the VCD defence with a shrewd run

only to hit his shot just wide of the far post.

VCD wouldn’t lie down and equalised for a second

time when Darboe outmuscled Lex Allan to

chase down a long through ball and score comfortably.

Not sure why his colleagues didn't

bother to run to congratulate him, though.

Sittingbourne lost captain Ben Gorham to injury

which meant the last 25 minutes with Allan

joined in central defence by recent signing John

Coker, but the two of them stood up to the test

well.

It was the home side who mounted more pressure

and Phillip had a close range effort

blocked and then Loynes got clear but unselfishly

tried to set up Rowland only for VCD to

scramble the ball away.

But it was from the resulting corner that Sittingbourne

got the winner, Elliott providing his

second assist of the afternoon as he swung it in

for Coker to rise highest in the six-yard box and

head home.

VCD still had time to miss a great chance to

equalise but Sittingbourne held out for all three

points, a welcome bounce-back from the Faversham

midweek setback.

Those thrilling wins over Herne Bay and Whyteleafe

set such a high standard that it was

probably never going to be maintained, but

that’s

10 points out of 12 at home this season for Sittingbourne.

And that’s promotion form!

Sittingbourne: Daren Hawkes, Chris Webber,

Chris Elliott, Ollie Brown, Ben Gorham (John

Coker, 66 min), Lex Allan, Kane Phillip (Tyrone

Guthrie, 83 min), Bola Dawodu, Kane Rowland,

Tom Loynes, David Smith (Yellow card) (Miles

Cornwell, 55 min). Subs not used: George

Blake, Harry Brooks.

Match Report

This was another good performance by the

Brickies against a strong Dover Athletic side

who are the holders of the trophy. The ultimate

accolade was that some of the Dover players

were getting increasingly frustrated that they

couldn’t upstage the Brickies and that culminated

in a red card for Aziz Deen-Conteh.

There was a debut for new signing Ade Batula,

whilst Kane Phillip, Ollie Brown, Ken Rowland,

and Darren Hawkes were rested, although both

Kane’s joined the fray in the second half. Ex

Brickie Chris Lewington was debuting for Dover.

There was a half chance for both sides in the

first 5 minutes, David Smith heading over for

Sittingbourne on 3 minutes and 2 minutes later

a dangerous Dover move halted when a shot

was headed off the line.

Dover looked menacing and took the lead on 22

minutes when Kane Richards who curled the

ball round Brooks and into the net

The Brickies responded well and on the half

hour Lewingon excelled blocking shots from

Dowadu and Chris Webber in quick succession.

Sittingbourne were looking strong now and the

dangerous Dowadu had another shot blocked

whilst Tom Loynes forced a brilliant tip over

from the busy Lewington. It was all Sittingbourne

at this stage and the next to try their

luck was Smith whose shot sailed agonisingly

across the Dover goal.

Dover had their moments too with a great save

by Harry Brooks from Oliver Muldoon, then a

header from Jamie Allen was headed off the

line by Lex Allan.

Sittingbourne were soon on level terms after the

second half start when on 52 minutes a Webber

free kick was headed powerfully into the net by

Dowadu

Brooks tuned a shot round a post then from the

corner George Essuman headed well over.

Smith tried a shot that just missed the far post

and then a 30 yard screamer that flew over the

top of the Dover goal.

Dover who had a glorious opportunity to take

the lead when a less than convincing punch

from Brooks landed at the feet of Essuman who

seemed to have the goal at his mercy but he

fired into the side netting. However Brooks redeemed

himself with a great tip over from Jamie

Allen.

This was the period when Dover started to get

niggly at their inability to break Sittingbourne

down and to rub salt into the wounds substitute

Kane Phillip cut inside a defender and sent in a

cracking shot that bounced off the right-hand

post and into the goal to put the Brickies into

the lead. However, 3 minutes later a needless

free kick was given away right on the edge of

the Brickies area and Deen-Conteh curled a

beautiful shot into the Brickies goal to level the

scores with 8 minutes remaining

Sittingbourne didn’t sit back and on 85 minutes

a good break by Webber (My Sittingbourne man

of the match) ending in a whipped in cross that-

Kane Rowland couldn’t quite get to it. The final

action before the penalty shoot-out was on 90

minutes when a sliding challenge by Deen-

Conteh ened in a second yellow card for the

Dover player and he was sent off.

The penalty shoot-out began with a success for

Dover’s Oliver Muldoon and for Sittingbourne’s

Kane Phillip. Dover’s success

continued with goals scored by Tobi Sho-Silva,

Jamie Allen, and Dominic Thomas but no more

from the Brickies so this closely fought game

ended in victory for the holders.
