The Secretary’s Jottings

Good afternoon everyone. Welcome to Woodstock.

Welcome to the players, Officials and

Supporters of East Grinstead Town and also

this afternoons match officials and representatives

from our main sponsors, ArrivaClick and

Drakes Plumbing. Todays match is sponsored

by the Carpet Centre so welcome and thanks

to them also.

After postponements at South Park and here

versus Ramsgate and Walton Casuals, its

great to be back!

Obviously, the big news is that Nick Davis, our

manager for the past three seasons, has, along

with Tony Cornwell, resigned. Nick and Tony

worked really hard during that time and the

committee are very grateful for all they have

done. In particular, having to build a complete

new team this season after losing most of the

players from the previous season. Unfortunately

Nick and Tony felt that they could not

live within our budget, a budget that has been

set to avoid us being in the red at the end of

the season therefore safeguarding our future.

Anyway, we move on and I would like to welcome

Aslan Odev as our interim manager. Obviously,

football is a results business and Aslan

knows that, but we were all impressed with

Aslan’s vision for the club and sincerely wish

him success. I know that you will welcome him

and give him your full support.

Literally, within minutes of Nick’s resignation

being announced, we had our first application

(despite us never advertising the post.) By the

next day we had had over twenty applications.

As a committee though, we felt that with only a

couple of months of the season to go, we wanted

minimum disruption, so we all felt that giving

Aslan the opportunity was the right thing to do

Appointing Aslan continues our tradition of giving

a chance for someone to manage at this

level for the first time. You will remember many

of them, Steve Lovell, now of course Gillingham

Manager (Steve was actually our manager

3 times!.) Richard Brady, now chairman of

Leatherhead), Gary Abbott, Mark Beeney,

(Now a youth coach at Chelsea) , Matt Wyatt,

Nick Davis himself and others. OK some were

more successful than others but generally we

have never regretted it.

Just an explanation now why budgets must be

tightly controlled . We have to find money for

the dressing room renovation that has to be

completed by March 2019 because of FA rules.

—they have to be a minimum of 18 square metres.

We are very grateful to have been awarded

grants from the KCC and Swale Council to

help with this but we still have to find a significant

sum ourselves.

Also we want to improve facilities for our wonderful

fans and that money has to come from

somewhere!

Next match for us is next Saturday when we

are away to Corinthian-Casuals, directions to

the ground are in this programme.

Dates for your diary starting with rearranged

games:

Tuesday 6th March Ramsgate Home, Tuesday

13th March Walton Casuals Home, Tuesday

20th March South Park Away.

Club events:

Friday 13th April, Music Quiz hosted by Peter

Hello Everyone.

Phew, what a couple of weeks! Manager resigns, New Manager appointed, Kane Rowland

signing a contract, Miles Cornwell leaving!

Its great that the majority of players have stayed and I like

to think that this is because of respect for Aslan and the

club in general, and especially respect for the supporters.

I hope that you all like the new web site. I had to start

from scratch with it as there have been problems in gaining

complete access to the old one. The address had

changed slightly but is now back at

www.sittingbournefc.co.uk, although

www.sittingbourne.uk and www.sittingbournefc.com all

work! The reason for the change is that after 3 years of

the “new” site and free hosting courtesy of Thermal Printer

Services Ltd the web master at TPS has parted ways

with the company, and I didn't have 100% control over the

site so I had to keep on asking him to add and delete

some content himself. This was not ideal as it introduced

a delay in updates. Also TPS wants to stop using the

server that was hosting the site so I made the decision to

completely revamp the site so that I have 100% control

and can put other innovations on it such as streaming. I

know its not as swish or modern looking as the old site

but I believe it does include a lot more information and is

easy to use. One downside is that the match reports from

the last 3 years are lost on the site, however they are not

completely lost as I have copies, but it will take some time

to put all of the links back. The links to the matchday programmes should all still work though!

The postponements of home games causes a lot of time wasted and expense with wasted

printing, so for some of the midweek rearranged games in April I will, where possible, be producing

joint Saturday / Tuesday programmes. Finally I am including in this programme an excellent

explanation of the promotions and relegations for this season at steps 3 to 5 (we are

step 4) and how non league at those levels will look next season.

East Grinstead Town —A Brief History

East Grinstead Town Football Club was formed on May 8, 1890 although it was another ten

years before they played their first competitive matches as founder members of the Mid Sussex

Football League. In those early days the club played in blue and white with the town's coat of

arms on the breast pocket. It was some years before they adopted their current colours of amber

and black and were nicknamed 'The Wasps,' both of which survive to this day.

They won the Mid Sussex League in 1902 and their first major honour followed seven years later

when they shared the Sussex Junior Cup with Arundel. In 1909 they were awarded senior status

which they have held ever since apart from two seasons when they were relegated to the intermediate

third division of the Sussex County League in 1989.

In 1912 Grinstead reached the Sussex Senior Cup final for the only time in their history but lost 4-

1 to St Leonards Amateurs in a ferocious snowstorm.

The Wasps were original members of the Sussex County League when it was founded in 1920,

but they struggled to make any impact and after finishing bottom in 1927 and replaced by Horsham,

they were not re-elected.

Rather than returning to the Mid Sussex League, they had four successful seasons in the Brighton

League before stepping up to the Southern Amateur League. A fresh challenge reinvigorated

the club and they won the Division Three title in 1932 with 15 victories out of 18. Three years later

they played on the Test match cricket ground at Trent Bridge in Nottingham when they defeated

Nottinghamshire Amateurs 6-0 in the old FA Amateur Cup.

Determined to regain their place in the Sussex County League, they were re-elected back in

1937 after winning the Mid Sussex League again and finished fifth in their first season.

In those halcyon days either side of the Second World War, four-figure crowds were the norm at

their old ground in West Street, East Grinstead, which they shared with the town's cricketers. The

club's record attendance is 2,006 for an FA Amateur Cup tie against Lancing in November, 1947.

Success eluded Grinstead until 1952 when they won the Baldwin Cup, the forerunner of the Sussex

County League Cup. That team is reckoned by many to be the finest the club has ever produced.

It was certainly the most entertaining - 42 games that season in league and cup produced

222 goals!

Grinstead were third in 1955, but their fortunes began to decline along with crowd numbers after

that. They left West Street in 1959 but it wasn't until 1967 that they finally moved to their current

home at East Court after a protracted battle to get the ground, which was prone to waterlogging,

fit for football. In the meantime they had a spell at King Georges Field in the town centre.

The club again finished third in 1973 but that was as good as it got for another 30 years although

Grinstead did reach their first cup final since 1952 when they lost 4-1 to Haywards Heath in the

RUR Cup in 1974 despite taking the lead. During the 1980s the club regularly hosted Crystal Palace

and Brighton in charity fixtures watched by crowds of over 2,000 spectators.

Wasps found themselves in Division Two for the first time in 1979 and even had two seasons in

Division Three before regaining senior status. They were promoted back to Division One in 1993,

but lasted just two years.

Bob Smith led Wasps back to Division One in 2003 and they also won their first trophy for 52

years, beating Three Bridges 4-0 in the final of the RUR Cup.

Unfortunately, the club were relegated back to Division Two on the final day of the 2004-05 season

and in October 2006 Smith, the longest-serving manager in the club's history, was replaced

by former player Steve Norris.

In his second season Wasps romped to the Second Division title by a massive 18 points, losing

just twice all season. Their winning run of 14 successive league games at the start of the season

meant they became the last senior non-league team in the country to drop points.

East Grinstead Town —A Brief History cont

Since then the club has established itself in the top flight, most recently under former Brighton

striker Simon Funnell and their progress on the field has been matched off it.

Floodlights were installed in 1997 and a new drainage system laid in 2003 that has transformed

the playing surface, which is now one of the best in Sussex.

In 2008 two new stands and a pitch perimeter barrier were erected and in 2014 with the GAC

Stadium already meeting the requirements of the Ryman Football League after installing additional

seating, the club began work on a new dressing room and hospitality complex, a new turnstile

block and entrance and a resurfaced car park. Part of the 2014 funding included a £50,000

grant from FA Cup sponsors Budweiser, £100,000 from the Football Stadia Improvement Fund,

£40,000 from Mid Sussex District Council and £35,000 from SITA Trust.

Funnell’s side finished the season in second place, their highest ever County League position,

and in May 2014, the club were accepted into the Ryman League for the first time in our history.

In October 2014, Simon left the club and was replaced by Tony Beckingham, who returned for a

second spell having previously been in charge between February 2010 – October 2011. Tony

managed to keep the club in the Ryman League for a second season despite finishing in 23 rd

place in the table, but left to join Hythe Town in September 2015. Matt Longhurst was appointed

new manager in October 2015 and after a difficult start he led the club to a 20 th place finish, their

highest in senior football.

Last season Grinstead improved still further to finish 18 th . Longhurst briefly left the club to become

No.2 at Hastings United but was re-appointed after two weeks away and has strengthened

Match Reports by Tony Rickson

Saturday 20th January 2018

Bostik League South

VCD Athletic 3 Sittingbourne 1 Att 80

To be harsh, Sittingbourne made too many mistakes

on the day and VCD were able to rather

easily pick up their first points since before

Christmas.

The game featured what was probably the

Brickies' worst 10 minutes of the season during

which they conceded two goals and also had

Kane Phillip sent off, along with a home player.

Apart from that, and a ghastly error which gifted

the home side their first goal, Sittingbourne

controlled much of this match without ever

reaching anywhere near their best form.

All in all this was a disappointing follow-up to

two home wins that had seemed to put them

back on track and allowed them to return to the

top half of the Bostik South League.

With Chris Elliott and Lex Allan ruled out, Sittingbourne

recalled Laurence Ball to their defence

and also had Tom Loynes available again

as substitute, following his hernia operation.

In dismal, rainy conditions on a rather forlorn

and deserted-looking VCD ground, Sittingbourne

dominated the opening period without

being able to break down a determined

home defence. The closest they got in this period

was when a VCD defender headed narrowly

over his own bar.

VCD, beaten 3-2 at Sittingbourne earlier in the

season, hadn’t threatened at all but still took the

lead on 37 minutes. Keeper Harry Brooks

called for a back pass from Ball but waited for it

to roll across his body onto his favoured left foot

and, rather embarrassingly, that gave Mfula the

chance to get close enough to block the attempted

clearance so that it just went straight in

the goal.

Sittingbourne don’t have the greatest of records

in recent times of hitting back from behind but I

really thought they had enough about them to

turn it round against these particular opponents.

But their passing was occasionally sloppy, they

lost just one too many

50-50 challenges, they didn’t get as many second

balls as they should have, and the usually

immaculate John Coker had a funny little period

where he couldn’t get a thing right.

VCD still hadn’t done much in the game, though

they fought determinedly and with commitment,

but they went two-up on 56 minutes when defender

Baker got in a free header from a freekick

and steered it home.

Worse followed for Sittingbourne a few minutes

later as they managed to stop an attack on the

edge of their area only for El-Moyhalbel to hit a

speculative shot that took a horrible deflection

on its way past Brooks.

The game hadn’t restarted when Sittingbourne

sub Phillip, who had only been on the pitch a

few minutes, got involved in a squabble with the

home team’s Awotwi. It looked something and

nothing, possibly a yellow card at most, but on

the advice of his assistant, the referee sent

both players off.

Sittingbourne took the attack to VCD for the

rest of the game, but top scorer Kane Rowland

was well marshalled, Miles Cornwell blazed

over when he did get a chance, and the energetic

Sal Kisitu had his shot deflected wide.

They did pull one back after 80 minutes when a

corner was only half-cleared and Ben Davisson,

probably Sittingbourne’s best player on the day,

got his first goal for the club with an excellent

instinctive left-footed finish into the corner of the

goal.

But it was too little too late as Sittingbourne

slumped to a seventh successive away defeat.

Sittingbourne: Harry Brooks, Chris Webber,

Salvyn Kisitu, Dan Parkinson (Tom Loynes, 53

min), Laurence Ball, John Coker, Bola Dawodu

(David Smith, 76 min), Ben Davisson (Yellow

card), Kane Rowland, Miles Cornwell, Rhys

Bartlett (Kane Phillip, 54 min). Subs not used:

Tyrone Guthrie, Nick Davis.


Non League Structure Next Season

I am reproducing a succinct explanation that appeared in http://northkentnonleague.co.uk/ of the

changes at our level and step 3 next season.

*A new League will be added at Step 3, it will be run by the Southern League and will be based

around the Midlands.

*The four new Leagues will consist of 22 clubs each, previously it was 3 Leagues of 24 clubs.

There will now be 88 clubs at Step 3 instead of 72.

*This season only one team will be relegated from each of the three current Step 3 Leagues.

*Promotion is the same from Step 3 this season, 2 go up from each of the three Leagues and 3

come down from the two National Leagues. So it is a straight 6 for 6 team swap.

*More teams will come up from Step 4 to help fill the extra League. Champions, runners-up and

play-off winners from each of the 6 Step 4 Leagues.

*A third-placed Step 4 team with the highest points per game average across the six Leagues will

also gain automatic promotion. Their play-off place will go to the 7th place team in that League.

*Teams will be regionalised into the four new divisions at Step 3 once all the promotions and relegations

have been settled.

*A new League will be created at Step 4 pushing the number to 7. It will be run by the Isthmian

League and be based around the Midlands. Each League will contain 20 teams.

*This season only the team finishing bottom of the six Step 4 Leagues will be relegated.

*26 teams will be promoted from Step 5 rather than the usual 14 to help fill the New League. So

aswell as the champions it will be 12 second place teams with the highest Points Per Game average

across the 14 divisions.

So in short summary there will be an extra League at Steps 3 and 4 meaning better regionalisation,

less travel costs and all Leagues will contain a reduced number of teams.

One interesting point that is worth looking at at this stage of the season is where the best performing

third place team from Step 4 can also gain automatic promotion.

As of 07th February 2018 the highest average points per game standings from the teams in third

place only are….

BS: Carshalton Ath: 65pts from 32 games= 2.03

BN: Potters Bar; 59 pts from 30 games= 1.97

SE: Dunstable; 55 points from 28 games= 1.96

SW: Bristol MF; 49 points from 28 games= 1.75

NN: Hyde United; 55 pts from 25 games= 2.20

NS:Bedworth Utd; 53 points from 29 games= 1.83

Hyde United in the Northern Premier North with the current advantage so in this case they would

get promoted and their play-off position would go to 7th placed Trafford. It is worth noting that at

this stage there are teams in the play-off zones that may have a better PPG yet as they have

played less games and have less points but they are not in third place so are not in my table.

In step 5 only two second place teams will not get promoted due to having the worst Points Per

Game from all the 14 second place teams. Currently those two teams are…

Beckenham Town and Horsham YM

(Results taken from 02/02/18)

As with all Promotions and Relegations between Leagues the FA will have final say and will confirm

all movements at the end of the Season

Match Reports by Tony Rickson

Saturday 27th January 2018

Bostik League South

Sittingbourne 1 Horsham 3, Att 159

For the second successive week, Sittingbourne

played a team they’d beaten in September at a

time they were up in second place in Bostik

League South. And they’ve lost both 3-1.

It’s been quite a turn-around, this season, Sittingbourne

having outclassed Horsham in that

previous encounter as they sauntered to a 5-1

win down in Sussex.

But now they’re finding wins altogether harder

to come by, and this was another frustrating

afternoon as they pounded forwards in the wind

and rain only to come up short.

Interestingly, five of this Horsham team were

on the losing side that sunny day in Sussex, yet

exactly the same number remain from the Sittingbourne

team that won so comfortably then.

For this match they were without two players

injured in the previous week’s defeat at VCD,

captain John Coker and midfielder Dan Parkinson,

allowing the return of Lex Allan and Tom

Loynes (his first full game since a hernia operation

before Christmas).

Sittingbourne began confidently enough in horrible

conditions but it was Horsham who

grabbed a surprise lead after 11 minutes in

what was virtually their first attack. A soft goal,

too, as a left-wing cross was simply flicked past

advancing keeper Harry Brooks by Nwachukwu

with everyone else standing around watching.

Nice celebration, the striker bravely pulling off

an athletic cartwheel on the slippery grass.

Not especially known for his defending, Loynes

saved another attempt on goal with a tremendous

block while at the other end the Horsham

keeper made a good save as captain Miles

Cornwell got clean through on goal.

Sittingbourne hesitated fatally again in the 31st

minute when a hopeful punt forward fell behind

the defenders and in front of Brooks, and

House ran into the space to score with a welljudged

lob from outside the box.

It needed a quick reply, and that’s what Sittingbourne

got, pulling back a goal just three

minutes later. Cornwell provided the pass and

Loynes the finish, showing how much he’s

been missed with a classy well-placed shot that

went in off the far post.

Just a goal down, Sittingbourne were very

much in with a chance and the half finished

with Chris Webber lashing a shot narrowly

wide.

The previous week at VCD I didn’t think Sittingbourne’s

response to falling behind was

that impressive, but this time they kept battling

and chasing and trying to get forward.

No faulting the effort, though sometimes the

end product of moves wasn’t incisive enough,

and Horsham, to be fair, defended well and

have an excellent keeper in Pelling, with very

safe hands in very testing conditions.

By far the closest Sittingbourne got to an equaliser

was in the 81st minute when Pelling picked

up a back pass. No good him arguing about it,

the decision was clear and correct. But Horsham,

of course, lined up the whole team across

their goal and managed to keep out Kane Rowland’s

driven shot from just five yards. It probably

needed something lifted to head height as a

low shot was almost certain to connect with

one of 22 legs guarding the goal.

And just as Sittingbourne must have been concluding

that they just weren’t going to equalise

on the day, Horsham added an injury time third.

A poor attempted clearance conceded possession,

and sub Landais had space and time to

place his shot past Brooks.

A disappointing result for Sittingbourne, which

sees them slipping into the wrong half of the

table, but I for one thought they played with

plenty of commitment and energy and were unlucky

not to get something from the game.

Sittingbourne: Harry Brooks, Chris

Webber, Salvyn Kisitu, Ben Davisson,

Laurence Ball, Lex Allan (Josh

Dorling, 57 min), Tom Loynes, Bola

Dawodu (Tyrone Guthrie, 62 min,

Yellow card), Kane Rowland, Miles

Cornwell, David Smith (Rhys Bartlett,

67 min). Subs not used: Abdulmalik

Usman, Dylan Riches.
