This Saturday 4th August 2018 we welcome former boss Neil Cugley and his Folkestone Invicta side to Homelands Stadium in what will certainly be an exciting encounter between the 2 sides as they battle it out for the George Sargeant Memorial Shield, 3pm kick off.

The memorial shield match is in memory of George Sargeant, who was a player, manager and physio for 52 years between 1952-2004. George sadly passed away late in 2015 aged 95.

So far it’s 1 win each for the two sides, with United winning the first game 5-4 thanks to a late Luke Eldridge winner, with Invicta thumping us 4-1 last July to level the tally.

This season we have added more tributes. Former chairman Phil Castle, physio Dave Williams and two former Ashford legends in Stuart White and Mark Stanton were all sadly taken from us too soon.

A match day programme will be available for this fixture.
