  1. Just giving - SASH/NHS Here is our link to the Just giving page. All clubs are facing a challenging time, not just financially but also keeping facilities up to standard for when non league football returns, but before we ask for help for ourselves its important to help those on the frontline and that's what the SASH/NHS charity does and has been doing over the years, its been our club charity for sometime now and is very close to our hearts, we need to ask for help for them, not for us. Even if its just a quid it will help make a difference.
  2. This morning my best mates Dad was taken by the Virus, keep safe everyone and double think everything you do, RIP Tubby.
  3. Anyone who has had a look at our match day programmes would have seen SASH charity page for the last three seasons will see what a great charity this is. From time to time at matches injuries happen and this season we required on a couple of occasions the attendance of ambulances and paramedics and for just this alone we need to say thank you but in the bigger picture its what the NHS is doing for everyone, if you go to our Twitter page or the Surrey FA page you will see a video message from Dr. Kofi Nimako - Respiratory Consultant, Chairman and U15s Manager at Redhill Youth FC.
  4. https://www.redhillfc.com/news/lobsters-raising-cash-for-sash-2532118.html Redhill FC's Senior and Youth Clubs are contributing to the community response to COVID-19 by fundraising for East Surrey Hospital. We all want to raise as much money as possible to thank East Surrey Hospital staff for the fantastic work they carry out all the time, but particularly now in the current COVID-19 circumstances.
  5. First of all I hope forum members and families are keeping well in these difficult times. JR, I'm with you on this one, its going to be a long time before anyone can declare it safe to return to normal life.
  6. Late Substitute Made For 125 Evening. Sky Sports pundit joins Graham Robert's for our 125th anniversary celebrations. Sky Pundit and Ex Crystal Palace man Clinton Morrison will take to the stage alongside Ex England international Graham Robert's at Reigate Hill Golf Club on the 3rd April. With Arsenal legend Nigel Winterburn unavailable, the likeable Soccer Saturday star was snapped up for the big occasion. Our celebrations start with golf in the afternoon, followed by an evening meal, guest speakers, an auction and a raffle. Packages for the event start at £35 For full details click on the shop tab on our website or contact the club directly.
  7. I'm fine hope you are doing ok. Well its not snowing thats a bonus! I have spent hours yesterday and today looking for a bottle of printer head cleaning fluid, now I remember I left it at the club so I would not forget where it was, note to self....by some post-it note pads. I blame it on cheap cider.
  8. With a combination of waterlogged pitches or no game scheduled for Redhill hopefully Lobster fans will get to see the lads play away at Camberley Town this Saturday. Our last game was back on 7th December when we visited Badshot Lea's new facilities and the traveling fans saw a well deserved 4 goals from Mo Diakite in a solid away 1-4 win so lets hope the good form continues into the new year. It was not just the goals that were worth remembering, but the welcome in the boardroom and the very tasty Sausage pasta that went down well! Have been trying to take in games at other clubs but none of my plans worked out as work or jobs at the club got in the way.. then I spotted that Tonbridge Angles were away today to Maidstone united but it was listed as advance ticket sales only....one thing that makes me grind my teeth for non-league games.......so I give up on that only to find out this morning its now cash on the gate, well I've made other plans for today, were Maidstone thinking they would get a sell out crowd? who knows. Anyhow back CCL, I hope everyones pitches are recovering well and I will be looking to do some pitch slitting and spiking soon as it gets a little firmer to get the machines out. Grass is still just about growing and the turfed goal areas we did in the closed season has worked well and should require just minimal remedial work for next season. We invested in having the pitch drained a few years ago so exploring what we can do to better cope when we have multiple days of rain, its amazing to see the amount of water the drains remove if you lift the cover! From the advice I have seen from drainage firms online is to add sand banding/slitting to link the lateral drains that run across the width of the pitch, anyone had this done by contractors or did the work themselfs? Still printing our programmes but its a right pain in the bum when games get called off and I don't like serving up out of date info using the postponed programme, so I have stared to rearrange pages so that date related stuff is in multiples of pages in the centre of the programme so minimal reprinting is done, also I don't do the staples until I know game is on! I would like to expand programme gate sales to inclued an on-line issue as well, we are lucky to have "Senior Lobster" our club historian who for each issue submits a couple of articles plus an excellent quiz as l think his work deserves a wider audience. Happy new year to everyone, what ever club you follow lets hope 2020 brings what you hope for. To all the committee members, the folk who man the turnstyles, who flip the bugers, serve in the bar, the ground staff, who edit the programme, the people who turn up mid week you don't get to see who get the jobs done behind the scenes a HUGE thank you for all the hard work you do for your clubs.
  9. ...never short of refreshments!
  10. Southern Combination Cup Redhill v Abbey Rangers GAME OFF.
  11. Front cover for todays Redhill v Cobham. Was talking the other evening with one of our programme contributors about our print runs and had we ever sold out? we came close for the Balham game with just two unsold and SL told me of his programme editing days with a print run of 200k in this case the first game at the new Wembley stadium, now I bet they never used Epson workforce office printers!
  12. Redhill print programmes in-house, its very cost effective, the front cover is full glossy card 180gsm we get for £8 per 100 sheets delivered, 2500 sheets of Canon red label cost £20, 4 sets of cartriges for Epson workforce printer is £12 on ebay. Its difficlult to cost the ink per 50 copy run but its not two full sets. We have a folder machine but I prefer to do it myself, it gets crisper folds and I can do the lot and staple in 45 minutes. In house means I can update at the last minute on a friday night, so no holiday closures to worry about. We have match reporters for 3 teams. "Senior Lobster" provides an excelent quiz and two articles that are an entertaining read. Biggest isues I have is not recieving info from visiting clubs before our cut off point for printing, Club History, squad list, management etc, so time is taken hunting on club websites and even then stuffs missing or out of date, l wish the CCL would make it a requirement for all clubs to have a document on the CCL website for programme editors to use, perhaps there is but I've not seen it! Tuesday Night games are a pain finding the time but thankfully this season we don't have many.
  13. This Saturdays FAC programme cover Redhill v Balham. All work done in house including glossy cover, minimum of 28 pages, articles and quizes suplied by "Senior Lobster" who always comes up with a wealth of information, we now have PhotoDan on board so never short of action pictures. we have been getting some good reviews from ground hopper blogs and its only a quid. ...and new shirts with our new sponsor Belfry Shopping Centre Redhill.
  14. As its Redhill's 125th year I can have a dream.... Prem. Redhill. Abbey Rangers. Sutton Common Rovers. Camberley Town. Div One. Tooting Bec. Bedfont & Feltham. Jersey Bulls. Chessington & Hook United. What ever team you follow, what ever club you help run I hope you all have a great season!
