Curly had spells at Folkestone Town/Invicta as player, manager and coach. Played for several seasons for Deal Town in early 60’s, reserves and 1st manager at Hythe Town 1980/82.

Under 10 Tigers please manager

What a morning for the Tigers U10s. Their first real experience of 9-a-side and they showed no fear against teams older and more progressed than them . Yes they lost their first 2 games but fought the whole time and showed the crowds their character.

Our final match against the Colts was again a very close game as they have been before, with a  1-1 draw, which the Tigers came from behind to level up before the final whistle.  This time the shoot-out went our way and the Tigers took home the victory. Truly proud of every single player today. And they are proud of themselves as they all put in heroics at times, pushed their personal limits and achieved a result together as a team, The future looks so bright for next season. We have no fear.

David Bridge reports from the Marsh Academy

Gorgeous Thursday night out in the sunshine and great performance from the team away at Grasshoppers.  Team played some great football to watch with one-two touches with one move from back to front nearly resulting in goal of season.

Apologise as lost count of score (think it was 9-1) and who scored but was most pleased with the way the boys continued to play football and didn’t all charge forward to score. We are working hard on the discipline, holding position, pushing a high line and it’s hard work for defenders but pleasing listening. PoM was hard with some good performances from goalkeeper to striker. Harli bagging a hat-rick and still not getting PoM. No apologies but both coaches sons shared PoM today – thought at times their wing play was awesome. Well played Thomas and Jenson but a really pleasing all round performance.

Joint PoM – well done boys!

Bat & Trap update
