• Club Update – September

    On Thursday night, 1st September, the management and admin committees met to discuss the start of the season and to react to the numbers that have been to training. While we have run a 4th side for a number of years, and a 5th at one point, the club has not always been able to maintain that number of sides. We can only provide football for the amount of people that want it and unfortunately we’ve had to now remove the B team, leaving us with the 1st, reserves and A team.

    The 1st and reserves managers will remain the same as will the divisions they play in, the new A team will be managed by Nathan Phillips and Aaron ‘3’ Morris with Marc Connolly concentrating on his role as vice chairman.

    The unfortunate up shot of this decision has been financial. While we were committed to the 1st team not having to pay individual match fees, with the rest of the club covering the shortfall, this is now no longer possible. It was always going to be a stretch of our limited resources but with only 2 teams supporting this instead of 3 this has proved to be impossible. Therefore the 1st team will now have to pay the same rates as the rest of the club.

    As we move to Crawley for training on AstroTurf under floodlights it is worth mentioning this costs the club £110 per session per week, which is obviously a huge cost. We encourage everyone to attend training not only to improve as players and to enjoy what you are paying for as members but to also have fun and help build club spirit.

    We have just purchased 40 new Mitre training balls and will also bring in more high quality match balls in the coming weeks.

    Off the field we continue to work hard, with sponsorship confirmed from Linkfield Physio and Clove Restaurant again for the season, as well as new link up with The Vine King bringing high quality wines to the club as well as a wine tasting evening. We are still exploring many other avenues of sponsorship and of course anything we get is put straight back into the club for the use of our members.

    We will continue to keep you all updated via email and the website, our upcoming fixtures for the 1st and reserves are below, with the A Team fixtures still to be confirmed. We are hoping to be able to play our first game of the season at Park Lane on the last week of September but this is yet to be confirmed by the Cricket Club.

    Fixtures for next few weeks of September are :

    FIRST TEAM
    10th – Ripley Village (A)
    17th – Yateley United (H)

    RESERVES
    10th – Virginia Water Reserves (H)
    17th – Abbey Rangers Reserves (A)

    A TEAM
    10th – RH Athletic (A) – depending on outcome of team withdrawal.

    Thanks very much,
    Chris Comben.

  • 2011-12 friendly: RPFC A 4 – 2 RPFC B

     

    The first preseason friendly for both the A and B teams was in doubt 30 minutes before kick off, the local grounds man deciding not to prepare the pitch at Walfields!

    Gilo with his great local knowledge sniffed out an alternative venue and despite the traffic the teams made their way to The Ring. The game kicked off 30 minutes after the scheduled kick of time which allowed time for fans to make their way to catch a glimpse of their heroes.

    What looked to be a one sided affair on paper turned into a well fought game with the eventual winners deserving of the bragging rights.

    The A team’s big money summer signing, Matt Bone, started the scoring with a delicate lob over the B team’s stand-in number 1, Harry Martin.

    Bone was on the score sheet again with a sublime curling effort from just inside the box after some fierce battling by Sean Doyle put Bone through on goal.

    The B team pulled one back through Ben Vezza, his effort rolling over the line after a couple of deflections in a crowded box.

    A long throw found it way to Doyle on the edge of the box who drilled it low and hard beyond the substitute goal keeper Nathan Philips into the bottom right hand corner.

    An injury to Billy Kirsch saw him leave the field of play for an early shower, the resulting changes leaving the A team with 10 men on the field. Brian Freeman took his place in goal for the A team giving Harry Wilson a run out at left back.

    The B team came back into the game through Tony Evans and with 10 minutes to go the fear of losing the lead was clear on every A team players’ face and in their passing.

    However Stu Jones calmed the nerves of the A team with a sweet volley from just inside the box after a cheeky back healed flick by Paul Reece set Jones up for the goal that proved to be too much for the B team to come back from.

    After some decent performances by the likes of the solid Nick Hale, the energetic Matt Hedger, and Mr Dave Hall the management team may have some healthy selection issues to consider.

    Final score: RPFC A 4 – 2 RPFC B
