Indomitable service.....

After a tough 4-1 defeat at Carshalton where the result maybe didn't tell the full story, although we were well beaten nonetheless, it was important for the lads to pick themselves up, brush the dust off and get a result against Three Bridges. And that's just what they did, with a rarely seen clean sheet to boot.

For those of us with a penchant for 'total football' it was probably not a match to merit a #classic in a breathless 140 character summary of the afternoon's events but it did provide a moment to savour for those that like seeing young chaps providing a service to the community on a Saturday afternoon. And so it came to to pass that the magnificently unpredictable Luke Winch served his community by popping over a nice little cross for the inDomitable Heaume to stick the ball in the back of the net. Quite a long way out for Dom as well.

This week sees two intriguing fixtures against south Park at the ARS on Wednesday then away to Folkestone on Saturday. We'll spend a few seconds previewing both games another time but if you're only planning on seeing one away match this season do try and make it to Folkestone.

Other midweek matches to keep an eye on are Hastings v Faversham and Worthing v Corinthian Casuals tomorrow, then Ramsgate v Walton Casuals on Wednesday.

The recent upturn in our fortunes brings thoughts of promotion back into our minds and, indeed, that man Heaume was only telling Auntie Beeb a day or so ago that the aim is a play-off spot. The view from the top of Ormering Towers remains one of regular thrashings were we to be promoted with the current squad and, in particular, the difficulty in travelling with our strongest 16.

That's not to say we're not fully behind a push for promotion though. After all if you don't want to try and win the league, or at least finish as high as you can, what's the point?

Keep it Green

Allez les Verts!!
