The Secretary’s Jottings

Good afternoon everyone, welcome to Woodstock Park.

Our visitors are Hastings United. Welcome to their players, officials and supporters and also

this afternoons match officials.

Hastings United are two points ahead of us in ninth place. Their last match was home to

Greenwich Borough and despite being 2-1 up at one stage they lost by 5-2. Before that they

had wins over East Grinstead (3-1) and Herne Bay (3-0).

At last we won a game! And won it comprehensively. Despite Guernsey saying they had some

players back from injury and other reasons, we totally dominated the 90 minutes. How we only

scored four goals is somewhat of amystery. A good game for the spectators with all the

chances we had and the resulting goal mouth action.

I watched the video highlights of our defeat at Carshalton Athletic on Robins TV You Tube

channel. Must say I was very impressed with the quality of the coverage. This is something we

are looking at doing ourselves but we need the right people to instigate it. Talking of video coverage,

our home fixture against Walton Casuals on Saturday February 10 th will be featured on

“Back of The Net”. If you are not familiar with “Back of The Net” have a look at their web site at

www.backofthenetsouth.co.uk.

Nick has released Jordan Carey, and we wish him well in the future.

Our next match is next Saturday when we are away to VCD Athletic. Directions to their ground

are elsewhere in the programme. We are next here on Saturday 27 th January when Horsham

are the visitors.

Enjoy the game!

John

The Programme Editor

Hello everyone, and another big thank you for buying this programme!

Today’s edition includes the interesting history of Hastings United football club, a club that has

had its fair share of ups and downs. The non league paper column appears again with an article

that salutes the unsung volunteers who no club can do without.

I see that our old player Tom Carlse, (pronounced Carlser), was

in joint charge of Greenwich Borough for last weeks match

against our opponents today, however Paul Barnes, who was

coaching at Ashford United, has now been named as the new

manager.

It was always clear to me that the reported spending at Greenwich

Borough could not be sustained and you can see why budget

cuts at our level are an almost inevitability. We have had some

unexpected bills of late ourselves and what with floodlight woes

and another possible problem on the horizon whilst we await the

result of the Cray Wanderers episode, not to mention the requirement

for new dressing rooms by the start of the 19/20 season, it

is no mean feat to sustain our budget, however you can help by

joining our lottery, details are towards the end of the programme.

The lottery provides us with much needed income but we believe

that there is plenty of scope of increasing the number of entrants.

What a great win it was on Tuesday over Guernsey. The score

could have been at least double and it was a great way for the

team to get back on track. Brian Edwards tells me that the win

was the 100th Isthmian league home win since we joined that

league! Lets hope we can make it 101 today!

I’ve added another Bygone programme, this time Sittingbourne v

Chatham Town played 66 years ago almost to the day

Bygone Programmes—12th Jan 1952


Hastings United—A Brief History

The present Hastings United Football Club has

existed continuously since 1901 having undergone

three changes of name. One consequence

of those name changes has been that

the club’s history has become inclined to be interwoven

with that of other clubs with similar

names and only recently has its history been

disentangled which is why it may now read

somewhat differently to previous versions.

The origins of the club begin with the founding

of old town side Rock-A-Nore in 1894; however,

five years later they became defunct but in 1901

a new club started-up using the same name.

They won the East Sussex League Championship

in 1907/08 and were to be amongst the

foremost local sides regularly winning trophies

until World War One called a halt to proceedings.

The club has previously played under the banner

of Hastings & St.Leonards and, until the

2003/04 season, played under the name of

Hastings Town.

The club joined the Sussex County League in

1921 and in their first season finished runnersup

to Worthing.

The club joined the Sussex County League

again in1952 finishing second in Division Two in

the 1959/60 season.

After changing the name to Hastings Town, and

in the 1979/80 season, clinched the Division

Two Championship and won the divisional cup.

The following season, the club won the County

League Cup. The 1984/85 season was to be the

last as a member of the Sussex County League.

Following the decision of the then Hastings

United to cease trading, Town applied for membership

of the Southern League and were elected

to the Southern Division. At the same time,

the club negotiated a long term lease with Hastings

Borough Council for the Pilot Field Stadium.

The 1984/85 season had seen Hastings United

struggling against relegation from the Premier

Division and it was a combination of the last day

of the season results—United beating Welling

United 2-1 and Crawley Town doing the U's a

big favour by beating Witney Town - that saw

that Premier Division spot retained by the narrowest

margin. Having done the business on

the pitch, it was to be off-field matters that

caused the demise of Hastings United in June

1985, when financial problems became insurmountable

and the club ceased trading.

Following the demise of United, Town applied to

join the Southern League. Peter Sillett was to

return to The Pilot Field, where he had enjoyed

great success as manager.

Everything fell into place in the 1991/2 season

and they headed the Beazer Homes League

Southern Division table for virtually the whole

campaign, leaving Weymouth, Havant Town

and Sittingbourne to fight over the runners-up

spot.

Peter Sillett was dismissed in December 1991,

with the side at the wrong end of the table.

Dean White was appointed as manager and

successfully steered Town to safety.

Town were to play Premier Division football for

the next six years.

Lottery winner Mark Gardiner became involved

with the club at the start of the 1997/98 season,

but success on the pitch was frustratingly hard

to attain and managers came and went.

By the end of 1999, Town were in turmoil, having

resigned from the Southern League, with the

budget slashed, and players leaving, Town

were placed into administration and the Southern

League refused to accept an attempt to

withdraw the resignation. An appeal to retain

Town's Premier Division status was

unsuccessful but a final effort by a local consortium

was to be successful at the very last moment

and Hastings Town Football Club was

saved.

Hastings United—A Brief History cont

Town kicked off the 1999/2000 season in the

Eastern Division.

George Wakeling was appointed as manager

early in the 2000/01 season, following Dean

White's move into the Nationwide League with

Brighton & Hove Albion. Promotion was gained

to the Dr Martens League Premier Division

football, and the club enjoyed a maiden trip to

the first round of the FA Cup, following a stunning

5-0 replay victory at Conference side Kettering

Town in the final qualifying round. A 1-0

defeat at Stevenage Borough, also from the

Conference, ended United's interest in the

competition, however the club was relegated to

the Eastern Division.

Chairman Mick Maplesden and George Wakeling

resigned at the end of the 2002/3 season

Steve Lovell taking over as manager, and relegation

was avoided.

The club switched to the Ryman League Division

One for the start of the 2004/05 campaign.

After a good start there was a dip in league

form followed leading to Steve Lovell leaving.

Neville Southall was appointed and the club

finished in eleventh place.

The 2005/06 saw Southall and the entire management

team leave. Player Nigel Kane taking

over after sharing the manager role.

The U's began the 2013/14 season as title favourites,

John Maggs was appointed manager

at the end of August 13 but Maggs was sacked

in January and Terry White took over for his

second spell as manager.

Two other managerial changes were made during

the season when results were disappointing

especially as many had tipped the club to be

challenging for a play-off place.

Towards the end of season 2014/15 the club

changes hands when a new board of directors

was appointed. Garry Wilson was appointed

as manager during the close season with Danny

Bloor joining as assistant manager.

Garry Wilson and Danny Bloor stepped down

at the end of the 2015/16 season to be replaced

by former United player Darren Hare

who had previously been with Gillingham FC

undertaking a number of rolls including caretaker

manager. Darren rebuilt the squad during

the close-season with a number of new signings.

After an excellent season which ended with a

play-off semi-final defeat, on penalties, away to

Dorking Wanderers, Darren Hare resigned. His

replacement is Adam Hinshelwood who once

again had to rebuild the side as a number of

players moved on. Adam resigned during September

to take on the managers role at

Worthing FC and was replaced by his assistant

Chris Agutter.

Have you ever stopped to wonder what would happen to Non-League clubs across the country if

they didn’t have any volunteers?

If the turnstiles had no operator? If the car park had no stewards? If the programmes had no

sellers?

As you’re reading this, look around you. It’s highly likely that you’ll be staring at the same faces

standing on the terraces and sitting in the stands that you see most weeks. It’s the same for the

loyal volunteers that keep Non-League clubs going, but what will happen when they’re unable to

continue their roles?

I refer back to an excellent column by the long-serving Northern Premier League chairman Mark

Harris in a recent edition of The Non-League Paper. He said: “The biggest challenge for Non-

League football is bringing in more volunteers.

“If I lined up all 68 of my chairman in the NPL and gave them a choice of either £10k in cash or

20 new volunteers, very few would actually take the cash because it’s the volunteers that get you

the money. It’s the volunteers that make the community programme work.”

Harris goes on to say that he believes a co-ordinated volunteering initiative is required to bring

fresh blood into the lower levels – and he’s spot on.

Non-League clubs couldn’t survive without their volunteers, who have pledged an incredible

amount of hours into the running of their clubs. But volunteers won’t last forever and a new generation

must now be coming through.

Non-League is all about people and that is a recurring word.

The National League system must find a way to engage communities within their local football

clubs. By doing so, more people are likely to want to get involved. The next step is having a clear

volunteering pathway in place so that people know how and who to approach at their club.

The correct training should be in place so that a volunteer is familiar with the possible roles they

could be fulfilling at a football club.

There will be people now who would like to volunteer at their local team but are unsure how to

go about doing so. It can often be difficult to approach a club on a matchday, not because staff

aren’t willing to help but rather that they are busy. A structure can help eradicate these problems.

If you can, put yourself forward to help out your club. It could only be for a couple of hours each

week but it will certainly be appreciated – and you might just enjoy it too!

Bostik League South

Whyteleafe 2 Sittingbourne 1, att 194

That’s the faith in Sittingbourne restored after

an energetic and committed display saw them

so nearly rescue a point at Whyteleafe.

After what was a sour Boxing Day at Ashford,

this was altogether sweeter – though for all

their effort it still ended up a sixth successive

defeat and they’re now in the bottom half of the

Bostik South League table.

What a turn-around from earlier in the season

when these teams last met, Sittingbourne winning

2-1 themselves that time and finishing the

day second in the league.

Whyteleafe have been on a poor run themselves

before ending it with a Boxing Day win

over Chipstead, but they’ve got a very good

home record and certainly know how to battle

and fight for every ball.

Without Tom Loynes, Chris Elliott, Kane Phillip

and the suspended John Coker, Sittingbourne

didn’t have a lot of flexibility in terms of team

selection even if they had been contemplating

changes after the disappointment of losing to

struggling Ashford United four days earlier.

Laurence Ball and Tyrone Guthrie returned to

the starting line-up, and Dan Parkinson came

on as a late substitute in his first appearance

for more than a year after injury.

Both teams straightaway turned it into a much

quicker and more intense game than the one at

Ashford with plenty of challenges and hefty

tackles that a lenient referee allowed to take

place.

Bola Dawodu had a good early effort saved but

it was Whyteleafe who took the lead in the 14th

minute following a lofted clearance aimed towards

the inside-left channel. The slightly higher

bounce on the artificial pitch seemed to

wrong-foot the otherwise sound central defensive

pairing of Ben Gorham and Ball, and

Hutchings was able to get in a square pass for

Day to easily convert.

Back came Sittingbourne in a well-contested

and even first half, with the hard-working Ben

Davisson having a rare Brickies free-kick

blocked, Guthrie putting a couple of shots wide

and Dawodu winning headers in the area only

to see no-one latch on to the second ball.

Whyteleafe were lively themselves and Hutchings,

who has faced Sittingbourne many times

over the years for various clubs, missed a good

chance in first half injury time.

Sittingbourne came out very determined for the

second half and took the game to the home

team in a desperate search for an equaliser.

That left them vulnerable to the counter-attack

and just such a quick break down the right

earned Whyteleafe a second goal, the cross

turned neatly in at the near post by Hutchings.

But there was no backing away from the challenge

by Sittingbourne and they continued to

press forward, sub David Smith looking to pull a

goal back with an audacious shot from the halfway

line that only just missed the target with the

keeper racing to get back in goal.

All that effort was rewarded on 71 minutes

when Kane Rowland showed great dedication

to close down a Whyteleafe defender and then

win the ball off him in a fierce little battle. He

still had plenty to do but from an acute angle

Sittingbourne’s top scorer lifted a delightful chip

into the far corner – what potential this lad has,

and no-one worked harder for the cause all

game.

Sittingbourne mounted an awful lot of pressure

but it was Whyteleafe who probably had the

best chances in the last 20 minutes as they

countered quickly whenever the opportunity

arose against an understandably stretched defence.

Goalkeeper Harry Brooks made three good

saves to keep it at 2-1, but – and it wasn’t for

the want of trying – Sittingbourne just couldn’t

force an equaliser at the other end.

By far the best chance fell to that man Rowland

again in an almighty scramble in front of goal

but a Whyteleafe defender cleared with the

keeper beaten. Rowland appealed that it had

crossed the line and it must have been a pretty

close thing but the assistant referee kept his

flag down.

That’s the way the luck goes when you’re on a

losing run .

Sittingbourne: Harry Brooks, Chris Webber,

Salvin Kisitu, Jidi Okimeji (Yellow card) (David

Smith, 60 min), Ben Gorham, Laurence Ball,

Tyrone Guthrie (Dan Parkinson, 80 min), Ben

Davisson, Kane Rowland, Miles Cornwell (Lex

Match Reports by Tony Rickson

Saturday 6th January 2018

Bostik League South

Carshalton 3 Sittingbourne 0, att 378

There were some positives for Sittingbourne at

Carshalton in the first game of 2018, despite it

ending in a disappointing seventh successive

defeat.

Firstly, Harry Brooks made some splendid athletic

saves in goal.

Secondly, the players worked very hard to stick

with great discipline and commitment to the

game plan. Thirdly, they prevented fifth-placed

Carshalton from scoring a goal in open play until

the last kick of the match.

And last but by no means least, their ever noisy

and optimistic supporters gave Carshalton’s

fans a lesson in how to get behind their team.

But all that apart, it was a game to forget, and

they didn’t force a single save out of the home

keeper all afternoon.

New signing from Dartford, Alfie Cue, was

named in the Sittingbourne side but was replaced

after the warm-up by Tyrone Guthrie.

John Coker, after suspension, and Kane Phillip

returned to the starting line-up.

The first half-hour was possibly the dullest first

30 minutes of the season. Sittingbourne

pressed high and energetically to stop Carshalton

playing out from the back – in a typical performance

by a team playing on a 3G pitch - and

the home side didn’t seem to have a plan B.

Sittingbourne forced a couple of corners and

Miles Cornwell tried his luck from distance but

almost breached the high fence behind the

goal.

Carshalton, with the silent majority in a decent

378 crowd presumably willing them on just in

their heads, had one chance quite out of the

blue, but Brooks made a lovely one-for-thecamera

save, arching backwards to tip it round.

It was a very committed job by Sittingbourne to

keep the home side successfully at bay, but it

went pear-shaped just before half-time when

Bola Dawodu was judged to have fouled right

on the edge of the area and Miller confidently

converted the resulting penalty. It looked harsh

to me, as the forward seemed to be going over

outside the box already, as he tried to dart between

two players, but the referee was admittedly

50 yards or so closer.

He was also closer seconds later when Kane

Rowland whisked the ball into the six-yard box

straight from the kick-off, but he picked out another

foul by a Sittingbourne player, Cornwell

penalised for a push.

Plenty to play for in the second half, with Carshalton

having created very little to earn their

lead, and Ben Davisson wasn’t far off the target

with a 20-yard shot.

Just after Dawodu seemed to be very harshly

booked, Carshalton won a second penalty

when an attacker went down under Chris Webber’s

challenge, Miller again converting, this

time low into the opposite corner.

Sittingbourne saw more of the ball in the last

half-hour but Carshalton showed how comfy

they were at defending and quickly counterattacking,

Brooks keeping the score down with

a string of excellent saves.

Disappointingly, Sittingbourne lacked either the

pace or ingenuity to get in at the other end and

threaten to pull the game back, as they had

done a year ago on this pitch, pulling back from

two-down in the last ten minutes to draw 2-2.

It all seemed to be petering out when Lawson

Okimeji misplaced a pass in his own penalty

area and Miller picked up his hat-trick goal with

a confident finish into the far corner.

Over half the defeats in this seven-match losing

run have been away to promotion-chasing top

five teams, and Sittingbourne now have a couple

of potentially winnable home games to put

an end to their sorry sequence.
