We have received permission from Folkestone for Alan Tait to play in the Reserves tonight.

Yeah...we could do ok next season if we get the nucleus of the team in place. Good that Tait is trialing, we all know he has raw talent just like Drury had at that level.

He didn't score tonight, the only time he had the ball in the net he was the victim of an iffy offside decision, but he looked sharp, I'm sure we will see more of him before the season is out.

For the record we won 3-1 with Rob Howarth scoring twice and Danny Jeffrey once.

Only saw the first half hour last night. Who was the No 11 for us playing in gloves? Thought he looked very good in terms of pace and running at players. Sidbe also looked good, especially his pinpoint crossing.

Shame about Alan Tait signing for Crawley - he looked useful on the ball and would have no doubt been a good addition to the squad.

No Jeffrey came on as a sub.

Scored a nice goal made for him by Ben Abbey

It didn't really work for Alan Tait last night and, as I was given to believe, we had to make a decision on him there & then. He didn't look bad but do we really have room for another 'one for the future'. We've already got a couple in the reserves which leads me nicely on to Quistin Ludovic. He's got to be on the fringes of the first team, well classy. Also look out for Tom Olson at right-back: Good tackler and excellent covering play behind Moussa on the wing.I rate them both highly and it would be interesting to see them at Conference level when the heat is on.

Ludovic has already appeared for the first team in The KSC this season, I believe.

As for Tait - we have got Battersby, with a reasonable goalscoring record at a higher level after negotiations with Crawley broke down, whilst they have Tait who could prove decent, but has yet to prove it at anything above Dr Martens Eastern Division level. At the moment, my thought would be that we have the best man for now, even if, potentially, Tait could be better in the future.

Tait got 15 league goals in a relegated DML Premier team last season which proves he can do it at that level.

But not this level. And the step from Feeders to conference is massive! And i mean that.

Kevin Budge showed that. He scored loads for an ordinary Heybridge in the Ryman but really didn't cut it in the Conference.
