  1. Having driven a 200-mile round journey from West Sussex, to support the Town yesterday, I must say that I, like the rest of our supporters , felt badly let-down by our lacklustre performance, particularly in the second half, against newly promoted Horsham. After our impressive 5-0 demolition of BS earlier in the week, think most people expected us to get something from this match, and were not prepared for the well deserved 1-4 drubbing by our visitors. It might have been different had we put away our chances. We didn't, they did, and over 90-minutes one has to say they looked the better side on the day. Much too early to write off our chances for this season, but this was definitely a bad day at the office. We need to address the problem areas and bounce back quickly, which I am sure we will, once the absentees' return and we are able to field a full strength side again, hopefully in the immediate future.
  2. A lot of hard work has been put in throughout the summer to improve our facilities at the QE2 Stadium, and strengthen our first team playing squad for the challenges ahead. A number of players have left to join Hornchurch, attracted by the silly money on offer, but Andy and his management team have replaced them with some excellent signings, who have performed well in our pre-season friendlies. Think most people would agree that our standard of play against United FC of Manchester and Spurs U23s was excellent, and we thoroughly deserved our wins against two very good sides, in enjoyable, highly competitive matches.
  3. Well done Town! Look forward to reading comments from our supporters who actually attended the match this afternoon.
  4. I have just picked up on a bit of interesting news from the Bostik League website that some people may not be aware of. With hindsight, it is interesting to note, that the young Bognor goalkeeper Petar Durin, who played in yesterdays match, is on loan to The Rocks from Portsmouth, and is in fact the Croatian under 18 international goalkeeper. Hey, hey, didn't we do well to put three past him!!
  5. Thanks for your posting Andy, couldn't agree more. Hope you're all having a great time in Cyprus. For the hardy souls who turned up for this match (attendance 418), they saw a very closely contested contest, with plenty of chances at both ends, played in drab conditions, with swirling gale-force wind, which made the game a bit of a lottery from start to finish. Allowing for the very difficult conditions, I thought the quality of play, from both teams, was a credit to the Bostik League Premier Division. Towns line-up was deleted by the absence of Joe Wright, Mo Fallah, Sam Youngs, all injuries, and Micky Purcell, one match suspension. As you might imagine, this was a very entertaining 3-3 six-goal thriller, and the atmosphere throughout was brilliant. People most certainly got value for money! It was a match which could have gone either way, but a draw was a fair result, and the only disappointment is that we didn't win. But it certainly wasn't for lack of trying! You missed a good match, but you can't be in all places at once. Enjoy that lovely hot sunshine while you can! I'm off to Tenerife next weekend. It's got to be done!
  6. This season Town have fared pretty well against Sussex based Bostik League Premier Division clubs, and have chalked up wins against Burgess Hill, Worthing, Bognor, and Whitehawk last weekend. Tomorrow we lock horns again with Bognor, another ambitious play off chasing club, in front of what is expected to be an above average, decent size crowd. The Rocks are well supported, so they will bring a good number of fans to the match. It should be a great atmosphere, and the Town Ultras, who have given our players fantastic vocal support, both home and away this season, have a major role to play. We really need them, and everyone else supporting the Town, to turn up the volume and lift our players (and the roof!) throughout this match, to make home advantage count! Well respected Bognor Manager Jack Pearce will have rallied his troops for this match, and stressed the importance of getting something from the game. Town need a high-energy performance, match their determination, and be up for the challenge. We need to win! COYT
  7. Hi djwilf, No official announcements or updates as yet, which is hardly surprising, as often late fitness tests are involved which can impact on team selection. Let's hope for some good news!
  8. The Bostik League Premier Division season is now entering the final stages, but there is still plenty to play for, not least for The Town who are on the cusp of the play off places. After our vital away win, and three huge points last weekend, Town play a massive ' must win six-pointer' league match against Bognor at The Queen Elizabeth Stadium this Saturday. Matches against 'The Rocks' are always close exciting encounters. Back in December, Town picked up a 1-2 away win in a hard, very competitive match at Nyewood Lane, Bognor, after coming from behind at the interval. Town are now 5th in the Table, three points and +9 goal difference ahead of 'The Rocks' in 9th place, so all to play for this weekend. Another very tight game in prospect! There's a way to go yet, but timing is everything, and Town have started to hit form at the right time. Don't miss this enthralling contest. There's no Premier League action this weekend, so if you live locally and are a Arsenal or Spurs fan, why not come and enjoy some non-league action, and cheer on your local team as they push on for a place in this seasons play offs. Let's hear it for The Town! COYT Good luck everyone! See you there.
  9. Good to read some very positive comments on last Saturdays match down here on the south coast. Think everyone who made the long journey, and there were quite a number of our supporters, will have enjoyed the experience. Be interested to hear the thoughts of other Towners who made the trip. Are we now back on track for the play offs? Over to you guys.
  10. Yes, how right you are seemgee. With Bognor and Worthing both dropping points today, this win lifts Town up to 5th in the Table, only seven points behind second place Haringey Borough. What about the match today? Well this was a gutsy performance by Town, and a hard-earned victory in very difficult circumstances, against a dangerous Whitehawk side who came into the game with no defeats (4 wins and a draw) from their previous five matches. Both sides badly needed the points from todays match, and it was end-to-end play from start to finish. Level at half-time, and all to play for after the interval, Town's cause was not helped when Micky Parcell was dismissed for a second yellow card offence after 65mins. His first booking was for kicking a ball away, when there were two balls on the pitch. A very poor decision, and over-reaction by the match referee. Down to ten men, Town could have crumbled as Hawks stepped up the pressure, but loan signing Joe Payne put Town back in the driving seat with a great strike, before Billy Bricknell added a third to put the outcome beyond doubt. Well done to Andy and the boys today, and all the Towners who made the long journey down to East Sussex, and competed well with the noisy, friendly, home supporters. On the downside, Town picked up a number of worrying injuries today, in particular Sam Youngs who had to be helped from the pitch, Mo Fallah who also limped off before the end, and Billy Bricknell who played the whole match, but appeared to have suffered a knock. Hopefully, they will all make a speedy recovery. Enjoy the result, it was a good day for the Town, and the boys did us proud!
  11. Today Town travel down to the South Coast to face Whitehawk in a Bostik Premier Division clash at the Terrapura Stadium, looking for a crucial away win and three precious points, to boost their chances of a place in this seasons play offs. For much of this campaign Whitehawk have been struggling in the relegation zone, but have recently clawed their way off the bottom, with four wins on the bounce against Lewes, Harlow Town, Burgess Hill, and Potters Bar. Back in October, Town took all three points in a dominant home display at the Queen Elizabeth Stadium to beat the Hawks 6-0. It is likely to be a lot closer today! The South Coast has been a happy hunting ground for the Town this season with impressive performances and away victories against Bognor and Worthing. Today could see the welcome return to the squad of Mo Faal, Lewis Taaffe, Aaron Greene, plus new arrival Joe Payne, a defender, loan signing from Barnet. So a very interesting competitive match in prospect, with a lot riding on the result. Can we complete a hat-trick of away wins down here in sunny Sussex? Very best of luck to Andy, Mario, Steve and our players this afternoon. I am looking forward to joining other Towners at the Terrapura Stadium in East Brighton to add my support. See you there! COYT
  12. Thanks djwilf, an excellent update on what sounds like a very enjoyable, entertaining match.
  13. All over, no goals, and another home draw, albeit against one of the better sides in the league. Was this a fair result, did we deserve to nick it, how did we perform today, who was your MOM, how was the match in terms of entertainment value? Let's hear from you Towners.
  14. Close! Excellent play from Oliyide who sets up Bricknell whose shot is snuffed out by the Angels defence. Yes CC, how sad he left!
  15. Tonbridge Angels have started the second half strongly and have just hit the post. You get the impression a goal is not far off.....but for who?
