Concord Rangers – 5 Aug – KO 15:00

We welcome Concord Rangers to The Vale this coming  Saturday (5 Aug)  for our opening game of the 2017/18  Vanarama National League South season kick-off 15:00.

The Stones management team and squad have enjoyed a good pre-season, from using the excellent facilities at the Harefield Academy to a good mix of pre-season games which have ‘tested’ all those that have been involved. With a sprinkling of new players to complement the majority of the squad that finished last season in eighth place expectations are high. Could this be the season that see the Stones emerge as genuine play-off  contenders or could they go one better and win the League?

Thank you to the Ray Corner & Pete Carter for sponsoring the game + Nick Woolford & ‘In memory’ of Dennis Mills (a former match day steward ) re the match ball donation(s).
