  1. The club phone number could not be much bigger on the web site. From the home page click on "contact the club" which seems reasonable enough to me and it's there in large letters for all to see.
  2. I am very sorry to advise that League Vice-Chairman and Youth Fixture Secretary, Tony Ford died yesterday. He felt unwell on Saturday morning and was rushed to hospital but sadly died soon afterwards. I have no further information at present. He will be sadly missed by the CCL to say the least and our sincere commiserations go to wife Gill and all Tony's family.
  3. Same as last season (except for Exeter City supporters, where they have doubled.)
  4. The match official appointments for August have been sent to clubs today. They can usually only be sent out at the last minute because we have to wait for FA appointments at higher levels before ours can be released. If we don't do that we then have a lot of alterations.
  5. The League is also looking at a formal tie-up with the Surrey Primary League, as part of our Chartered Standard procedure, which would then provide a path from Under-7 right through to adult football.
  6. You might have a long wait! I don't know what exactly is meant by "after 3.00 pm on Friday" - that could mean Saturday or whatever. Would have been easier if they had said "at 3.00 p.m." As soon as the details are available, I will put them on the website as I doubt the FA will email them to every single club.
  7. To reiterate, Dorking Wanderers Reserves were not allowed by the FA to re-join the CCL next season. They were turned down because current rules require any club applying to go into Step 6 from outside the National League System has to apply by a certain date and their application was after this date. It would have been difficult for them to apply within the deadline as the news of Dorking FC intending to fold was not generally known before the deadline. Voting clubs in or out at AGM's is unlikely to happen again. This is because the FA now dictate who comes in and who goes out at all levels within the Non-League System.
  8. It might just be because the 1st Round match was abandoned in September without ever starting, then we had several weeks while Surrey County FA deliberated, then the appeal to the FA, then the time it took them to advise the outcome, then 2 postponements because the Banstead pitch was waterlogged, then a further abandonment due to the floodlights failing. Add in the fact that Banstead declared their pitch unavailable on 29 April plus the general problems of availability that ground sharing brings plus the FA requirement that we must finish league matches by a certain date.
  9. Two small corrections Mr. Gun! We were 3-0 up weren't we before Kempston scored and the og was from Russell not Weighty. Otherwise would agree that it was a very good performance.
  10. I am aware that one club was talking about the possibility but the League has not been made aware by either the FA or the club concerned that they have actually requested a transfer to the Premier Division. That doesn't mean it hasn't happened, of course.
  11. The match between Bedfont Sports and Camberley is in the 2nd Round (Quarter Final) with the winners to play away to Abbey Rangers in the semi-final, with the eventual winners to face Windsor in the Final. There is no date yet for the Final, nor venue.
  12. The next attempt to play the much delayed 1st Round tie in the Division One Cup between AC London and Banstead will now be on Thursday evening, 23 March, at Colliers Wood United, kick-off 7.30 p.m. Thanks to Colliers Wood and Tony Hurrell for facilitating this arrangement.
  13. Here is the report from the local Barton paper: A late goal from recent signing Danny Watson saw Barton Rovers pick up a point against Ashford Town on Saturday. It was the visitors who the best of the play early on, with Mark Bitmead and Dan Fleming creating problems for Rovers’ defence. Fleming popped up at the back post after 13 minutes to tap home after shaking off his marker, as Barton had to defend wave after wave of attack from their opponents. Eventually the hosts established a foothold to create a few half chances, with Luke Knight well wide, before Watson scuffed a shot off target too. After the break, Rovers produced a far more spirited performance, although their opponents remained dogged with a batting display of their own. Charlie Smith’s free kick sailed over the bar before some good inter link play between Michael Malcolm and Elliot Bailey saw another chance go begging. The breakthrough finally did arrive on 88 minutes as Hartley flicked a long ball on for Watson who slotted home from an acute angle to give Rovers a very hard-fought point. Afterwards, manager Jimmy Gray said: “Ashford were great and made us work for every ball. “They had a gameplan and played it well as we didn’t get into the game in the first half but certainly put in a shift in during the second.
