This Tuesday 5th February 2019 we travel away to Sittingbourne FC in The Bostik League South East Division, 7.45pm kick off.

Another win for United on Saturday which now puts us in 2nd place in the table, just above Hastings United on goal difference, who dropped points at home to Guernsey on the same day that we beat Sevenoaks Town 2-1.

We faced Sittingbourne at home back in September and could only manage a 1-1 draw, so will be certainly looking to make up for those dropped points earlier in the season.

Tuesday’s hosts currently sit 16th in the table following their great 4-3 win away to Phoenix Sports at the weekend, which saw them leapfrog Herne Bay & Faversham Town from 18th place. They have 20 points from 22 games, compared to Ashford who have 45 points from 23 matches.

Sittingbourne’s home record in the league this season consists of 3 wins, 1 draw and 7 losses, whilst AUFC’s away record in the league is 8 wins, 1 draw and 2 losses.

United have won 11 of our last 13 games, drawing 1 and losing 1. Sittingbourne in contrast have won only 2 of their last 15 games in all competitions, losing 13.

Safe journey to all of our travelling supporters.

Details below on directions to Woodstock Park!

Car – Set your SatNav to ME9 8AG

From the M2 exit at Junction 5 or the M20 at junction 7 take the A249 towards Sheerness. If you have taken the A249 from the M20 go straight across the roundabout after approximately 3 miles. Leave A249 at the A2 turn off (this is the first junction after the M2). Go up the raised section to the Key Street roundabout and take the A2 to Sittingbourne.

After about a mile turn right at Adeleide Drive (just past Wickes). Go to end of road and turn left (into Borden Lane) and then immediate right (into Homewood Drive). At end of road turn right into Ufton Lane. At end of road by the pub turn right into Park Road (Becomes Gore Court Road). At mini roundabout go straight on into Woodstock Road, Woodstock Road becomes Ruins Barn Road.

When houses disappear after, approximately half a mile, turn left (signposted Kent Science Park) into Broadoak Road. Go down hill pass the Science Park on right (SAT NAV WILL TRY TO TAKE YOU INTO SCIENCE PARK). Carry on up the hill for another 50 yards, turn left into the car park of Woodstock Park.

Come on you Nuts and Bolts!
