Welling Utd – The Vale – Sat 29 Oct
We welcome Welling Utd to The Vale this coming Saturday (29 Oct) for our latest Vanarama National League South fixture kick-off 15:00
Thank you to Markie Barton for sponsoring the match in aid of the Frame Football (London) initiative which is aimed at providing football to physically disabled players who need to use walker style frames or players who feel they can compete more equally by using these frames.
Our visitors, who were relegated from the National League last season, have made a wretched start to this campaign and are currently sitting in 21st place on 8 points having won 2 and drawn 2 and lost 10 so far this season. Manager Mark Goldberg has recently brought in the vastly experienced Jamie Day as first team coach with the aim to hopefully help turn things around on the pitch.
Following our success at Gosport Boro on Saturday we also enjoyed a good win in the MFA Senior Charity Cup last night against Harefield Utd by 4 goals to 1 – Stones scores Oshodi, McGleish, Kabba & Gibson – it was particularly pleasing to see youngsters Rawn Seale and Alex Lafleur from our Ryman Youth team feature in the squad.
There are no easy games in this League this season, the Stones Management team and squad will be well prepared come Saturday for what is likely to be another tough game. Get behind the lads from the off, make plenty of noise for the 90+ minutes as we go in search of the 3 points on offer.
