Old photos stir up memories! Fixture amendments for Seniors, U14s and U12s

At this time of the season, there are regular changes to the fixtures schedule to slot in postponed games. Therefore, can everyone please refer to the Fixtures and Events page [recent amendments include matches for the Seniors, U14s and U12s].

Great to receive plenty of feedback on the old photos! It seems as though many of you like a bit of nostalgia; so here is a combined photo from the Cancer Relief Charity Match [see below]. The much-missed Peter Sillett was manager of Ashford Town in those days and attended the game.
