Vickers fail to fire, as Hornets machine gun down their guests
Our pre-season matches against Merstham and Loxwood have been cancelled and replaced by fixtures against Langney Wanderers and Tooting & Mitcham United respectively. It will be our first ever meeting with Eastbourne-based Langney, who were formed as recently as 2010 and be making their debut in the Premier Division of the Southern Combination League next season after finishing as runners-up in Division One this year, while we look forward to renewing our acquaintance with Tooting with whom we have enjoyed many a tussle over the years.
We host Langney at Culver Road on Saturday 14th July (ko 11am) while our visit to Tooting will take place on Saturday 4th August (ko 3pm).
It has been revealed that our friendly at Dorking Wanderers on Saturday 21st July will be one of three matches taking place at Dorking’s new Meadowbank Stadium that afternoon, with the hosts, ourselves, Dulwich Hamlet, Merstham, Heybridge Swifts and Walton Casuals all competing for the Jacob Sylvester Trophy. All gate receipts will be donated to the charity Bliss, that supports babies born sick or prematurely, with three points awarded for a win, one for a draw, and an extra point for every goal scored. The schedule for this event is as follows:
12.30pm Heybridge Swifts v Walton Casuals
3pm Dorking Wanderers v Horsham
5.30pm Dulwich Hamlet v Merstham
