Time to ease back into the swing.....

Time to wake from the close season slumber. Had a couple of weeks in Lanzarote. Plenty to do, friendly locals, lovely hotel, lots of sunshine and much better value than all round than a trip to Guernsey(sadly).

On my return to Ormering Towers I spent some time reflecting and I reached the conclusion that Lanzarote wasn't such a good  holiday destination after all. Something was missing but I couldn't quite put my finger on it.

Then it came to me, although admittedly I might have overdone the Bombay Sapphire. You, being ordinary Guerns, are clearly not worldly wise enough to be so visionary so let me enlighten you. Lanzarote doesn't have a milk museum.

So don't be harsh on DJ Kev, he knows what us tourists crave. Buffoon.

In case you're interested Lanzarote does have an aloe vera museum, but enough of that.

Pre-season training starts tomorrow (only reasonable to give the lads a couple of weeks off after the Island Games) and we already know of two visits to new exotic locations next season. The delightful surrounds of Barnehurst and Thurrock await us in the FA Cup and Trophy. Sadly, without a milk museum, neither feature on anyone's list of must visit places but we'll be there and we'll do our best to find you the ideal pre-match watering hole.

On Friday we should know the league fixtures, although there might be a gap or two as it's still not clear which division Farnborough will be playing in. All quiet on the CVA front, the local paper doesn't know who to believe and they've only got 3 or 4 players registered at the moment. But they're not really our concern.

We (and that means fans, players, coaches, directors and all the other volunteers) need to focus on hitting the ground running when the season kicks off. Donkey spirit from the off and who knows, we might still be in the FA Cup come September.

Keep it Green

Allez les Verts!!
