By Birchington FC
Just joined a moment ago and wanted to say hi.
The aim over the next few months is to create, form and put into reality a county league football team based in Birchington-On-Sea with the hope of progressing through the non-league system.
I played semi-pro football from the age of 16, spent some time at a few pro clubs too, but hung my boots up 5 seasons ago at the sprightly age of 41. I had coached youth and ladies football and a few seasons ago was an assistant manager in the Spartan South Midlands League. After taking some time out and moving to the Kent coast I made the decision recently to embark on my coaching badge trail, but linking myself to a club in the area proved extremely difficult and every enquiry I made to assist/volunteer to a club in any manner fell flat. I am fully aware of how football works and nobody knew me in the area, so it was to be expected.
It was after a conversation with someone I used to play with that he mentioned about "starting your own club" in an area which does not have one. I live a stones throw from Birchington-On-Sea and although I am aware of the thriving Sunday League football in the area I noticed there was a niche for a community based Saturday club which could start in the Kent leagues and potentially move through the system, or at least "have a go."
Today was the birth of Birchington FC and I hope as time goes on I can keep you updated on how things go.
I look forward to chatting to some of you.....but in the meantime, there are finances to arrange, sponsors to talk to, pitches to book and players to scout.....
See you on the seaside

Just to let you know that I have nothing to do with the Club I'm a supporter of the club just like most of you. It's flattering that some people think i am still involved with the BTSA.
No I'm not sure why additional TV's were not purchased as suggested.
Any questions should be sent to either of the following email addresses firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
I wish you the best of luck with your questions
Keep supporting the Blues
I thought this might be a good idea (it probably won't be...)
If any clubs in the Combined Counties are on either Twitter or You Tube, maybe they could post their web-links in this thread.
If there are clubs not currently on Twitter or You Tube but whom are considering joining up to one or both, perhaps they could use this thread for reference.
Just a thought.
Hi all, hope you don't mind me posting here.
I'm not sure if anybody here has heard of a player called Christian Bulembi, but he is a striker aged 19 who has previously played for Leyton Orient and Peterborough United. His nationality is DR Congo, and he holds a UK Passport.
Christian is looking for a new club and would love to speak with interested clubs. He is East London based and can be contacted on 07428653709.
No, I'm not his agent by the way! Just seen an ad from him on Football Finder and thought you guys might be interested in him.
