Maidstone Utd – Sat 12 Mar – KO 3.00pm
We welcome Maidstone Utd to the Freebets.co.uk Stadium this Saturday for our latest Vanarama National League South fixture kick-off 3.00pm.
The game will not be segregated and all fans are free to use the Social club facilities prior to and post match and are asked to follow any instructions/directions provided by the match-day stewards. We also follow the tradition of changing ends at half-time…….
Our visitors, promoted last season from the Ryman Premier League are comfortably sitting in one of the play-off spots with 60 points having won 19, dawn 3 & lost 9 scoring 38 and conceding 24 so far this season. On Tuesday night they travelled to Oxford City where they ran out 3-2 winners.
The midweek Middlesex Senior Charity Cup game versus Hanworth Villa provided an opportunity for both Jonathan North and Jack Smith to get some valuable game time as they return from injury. Whether they feature on Saturday will be down to the management team, one player who should be available though is Jonny Wright who missed out on Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Concord Rangers through suspension.
We can expect a hard fought and quite a close game as both sides battle it out for the 90+minutes so get behind the lads from the off and make plenty of noise as we go in search of the points on Saturday.
A big thank-you to our Match-day sponsor ‘ProKit’ and Match Ball Sponsors Gordon McKay and Alan Palmer .
The Club are also offering up to 4 lucky fans the chance to be wined & dined in the boardroom pre, half time & post match this Saturday in the company of WFC legends George Duck, Willie Watson, John Morton, Billy Byrne & John Henderson.
