This Saturday 9th February 2019 we will be facing SCEFL Division 1 side Welling Town FC in a friendly at Bayliss Avenue in Thamesmead, 12.30pm kick off.

We spoke to the gaffer, Tommy Warrilow this morning:

“With no game this weekend our players were due to just be training at Homelands, then I received a call from Kevin at Welling Town a couple of days ago asking if we fancied a friendly this weekend, so I thought why not. It offers something a bit different and hopefully if the weather holds up, we can play the game on their grass and keep our team familiar with both the artificial and real grass surfaces. Rather than having the players train at Homelands both Thursday and Saturday, it’s great that now they can play Saturday, followed by the Folkestone friendly next Tuesday too. Last time we had a big gap without a game, over the Christmas period, we played Hastings and we didn’t look as match ready as we could have been.

These two friendlies will be good for everyone to get minutes, we’ve got Clark, Stefan, Lea, Jay, Theo and Hooky who can all go out and get some minutes to keep their fitness levels up. I’ve stressed in recent weeks that it’s great we now have a really strong squad, especially now that suspensions have been served and injuries are behind certain players, we want to make sure everyone is match fit and ready for our next league match away to Herne Bay next weekend.”

Welling Town play at Bayliss Avenue, and ground-share with Sporting Club Thamesmead who we played in pre-season. Entry will be £5 for adults , concessions £3, Under 16s £1 and Under 5s FREE. Remember, kick off is at 12.30pm!
