Nice one Chris. I think our own Steve Adkins was involved with them at some point. I know he son played for their youth team.

I can't make the game either which is disappointing as I grew up with Stevie Mckimm and played in 4 teams together.
My Mason will be switching codes and dropping a round ball for a egg shaped one when he joins Sutton and Epsom after half term. Part of his learning the game will be a trip to Rosslyn Park on Saturday.

Dulwich are one of non-league's best-supported and most recognisable clubs but face trouble.
Dulwich Hamlet face bankruptcy after a court gave the south London club 14 days to find £150,000 to continue their fight to build a new stadium.

One of the best-supported clubs in non-league football and known for developing players, Dulwich are caught in the middle of a row between Southwark Council and Meadow Residential, the firm which wants to build housing on the site of the club's current ground at Champion Hill.


Monday's court ruling concerns Dulwich's request to renew their lease on Green Dale, some adjoining land which includes an artificial pitch.

This land is crucial to the Dulwich Hamlet/Meadow redevelopment plan as it is where the club's new 4,000-capacity ground will be built - by Meadow - before the Hamlet are handed over to their fans, free of debt.
Unhappy with Meadow's plans for the wider site, worth at least £80million, Southwark Council is blocking Dulwich's request to renew the lease on Green Dale, which the local authority owns.

With the club losing more than £100,000 a year, the council has sought and been granted "security of costs", effectively a deposit on any costs the council would be owed by Dulwich if the club lose the lease case when it goes to court in December.
A defeat then would cost Dulwich more like £450,000 but the club cannot afford the £150,000 security of costs bill and are once again left to rely on Meadow's stomach for the battle with the council.
In a statement released to Press Association Sport, a spokesperson for Meadow said: "For over three years Meadow has provided significant financial support to Dulwich Hamlet while pushing forward a development project to give Dulwich Hamlet a new stadium and a sustainable long-term future, under fan ownership.
"It is sad that the council has chosen to undermine Dulwich Hamlet with legal action to take away the land that is integral to the stadium project.

"We are disappointed th

I personally feel that Frank is the best thing that has happened to Tooting since Billy Smith. I just hope he can let go of players that have been great servants but who are struggling at this level. Tough job to do. I do think he has bouncebackability and has shown that he his a fighter when to be honest at times I have given up hope. Keep up the good work Frank!

If Frank wants him Roger and the money is right he would come. Although I am not a club associate I thinks it's best not to say anymore at this stage just in case Frank wants him.

I think With them losing their manager they will feel very down and can get another win Saturday.
At least our management is currently stable and has the backing of everyone. I have never seen support for a manager who has had such a difficult start to a campaign. I think this might pay off for us all and we have a good chance of getting some much needed points.

Dear All

It is with great sadness that I have tendered my resignation at Kingstonian F.C.

There are a few reasons but the main one is the budget cut. It’s not the amount nor the fact that it
is softened by the ‘boost the budget’ scheme. It has drained me of any energy or enthusiasm and
that is my biggest attribute. At the end of the season presentation it was my intention to leave but
the Chairman presented a decent package although roughly £700 less than the previous years
budget and persuaded me to stay. It was something I felt I could work with and be successful. To
have that cut ONE month into the season was something I took very personally and at worse felt I
had been misled. It’s maybe not my place but having a boost the budget scheme and then cutting
the budget doesn’t sit right.

This was compounded by the recent chats regarding Tolfrey, who I believe to be the best keeper
in the league, Taylor who is a goalscoring midfielder and currently our top scorer plus Vilcu who is
arguably the best CB in the division. The willingness to release this quality of player brings into
question any ambitions the club have.

Another reason is Mark Anderson stepping down. Mark was the chief reason I decided to stay on
this season and has always been very supportive.

I announced the cutbacks after our game with Tonbridge with us sitting in 4th place (there’s never
a good time), the response was what you might expect. Players wanting to leave and a general air
of despondency. The impact was a negative around the dressing room.

Maybe it’s a coincidence but the three games since have seen hugely disappointing results. They
have followed a similar pattern, a good start, followed by calamitous mistakes that if that were not
so poor would be comical. I have never in 18 years seen such a spell of incredibly poor goals
given away. For that I have a responsibility no doubt but the quick follow up goal in all three
games has been due to a poor reaction, which is very

It's been a peculiar twenty four hours in the world of Bostik League management.

Back in August, when we were celebrating James Webster's 400th match in charge at Brightlingsea- and the fact that he had a better win ratio than Arsene Wenger- the expectation was that he would go on to have further success with Regent. Seven years, four promotions and a first ever Bostik Premier Division campaign just begun, it seemed very much that the marriage between Webster and the club was as strong as ever.

Little did we know that he was experiencing the seven year itch!

On Tuesday morning when Aveley- managerless since the departure of Terry Spillane- announced that they were making a managerial announcement at 10 PM that evening, it seemed likely that the strange timing involved meant that the new manager in question was completing his final match with someone else. Despite this, unless perhaps you were in Aveley or Brightlingsea, there was little speculation that Webster was the person involved.

Yet at 10PM Aveley caught most of us by surprise by announcing the appointment of James Webster- and that his Assistant Chris Smith was also making the move to Parkside.

This, of course, leaves Regent without a manager- but they have been joined in this situation by Kingstonian, who this morning announced that their manager Craig Edwards has resigned from his post with immediate effect- bizarrely, after losing his last match as K's manager against Webster's Regent last night! We don't believe that Craig is about to turn up at the Taydal Stadium, where coach Ryan Salter has been placed in temporary

Great post Simmo. I think Frank has showed massive strength and character this week and humanity which I didn't think he had. So well done Frank again.
I thought the tactic of stopping them playing out from the Keeper was obviously what was mentioned at Half time. This stopped their main tactic of keeping the ball and putting them into a 50/50 scenario.
Also someone must of had a word with Omar who was trying to trap every ball instead of flicking on to Mike which again was sorted at Half time.
I think Mike needs to  watch Paul Vines at Thamsmead.  Paul has eaned good money at this level for over a decade.He needs to bring more aggression and passion into his game. Let the CB know your there. Give away a little foul, step on his toes jump at the player if you can't head it. Push him about. He is a big lad and for me I want to see some fire in his belly , play on the edge a bit. Then he could even play at a higher level.

A very entertaining game which had a familiar look about the quality two Ryman South teams battling to stay in the Premier.
I thought the line up was improved with Mike and Omar up front. Jeuvan Spencer showed his quality in his right position out wide. The whole team did well and Frank and Paul  should take a lot of credit for today's very important win. Hopefully not having a game on Tuesday will give them a chance to speak to players we need to strengthen. I was surprised Sol P started and he knows I love him ,I have known and supported him since he was 15 and  looked out for him at Dulwich has struggled in the Premier this season in defence.  Honestly put Sol in the CDM and watch him shine.
Chace had a better game . I thought Matte was man of the match again keeping us in the game. Jordan Wilson had the best game I have seen him in a Tooting shirt it was like the old Jordan we used to watch several years ago.
Well done boys !

Cadman returns for second loan spell

After a spell at Woodside Road at the end of last season, defender Tom Cadman has returned on a one-month loan deal from Whitehawk.

Following on from the loan signing of Aldershot Town’s Luca Wrightman, Adam Hinshelwood has further strengthened his options today by capturing former Brighton & Hove Albion defender Cadman who played 7 times on loan from the Seagulls last season.

The 19-year-old was released by the Albion in the summer but chose to sign for the National League South side despite Gary Elphick’s interest in taking him to the club permanently. He now joins for an initial one month period that will be reviewed by all parties upon it’s completion.

A composed centre-half who can also play in midfield, Cadman has represented the Republic of Ireland at under-19 level.

Like Wrightman, he too goes into the squad for tomorrow’s vital clash with Tooting & Mitcham United

Worthing Football Club have come to an agreement with Aldershot Town for the loan signing of Luca Wrightman.

The 17-year-old who is a graduate of the Shots’ academy can operate as either a right-back or right-winger.

Wrightman who has made two substitute appearance for the National League side this season spent the second half of the last campaign playing Isthmian League Premier Division football with Canvey Island.

Having trained with his new teammates last night he goes straight into the squad for the bottom of the table clash with Tooting & Mitcham United tomorrow.

I think you are missing my point Gary, at the end of the day it is for the manager to let the players know when things are wrong, as I am sure he does, but negativity on here, in my opinion, does not do any good for either the manager or the players.
As for stating "there are plenty of quality managers who want to manage Tooting" do you not think he knows that and I am sure he does not require us to inform him of that fact.
As I said before, put yourself in their, or Franks, place, they already have sufficient pressure upon them, do they really need more?
Some things are best left unsaid.

The point of this unofficial forum is that the paying customer have their say.The reason I was asked to take it over is that I don't work for the club and Bolty wanted some one who will give a honest and allow anyone's passionate view with out bullying or being personal. I am doing my best to fulfil my promise.
Maybe the club should have it's own official forum for the people that do not want to hear any criticism can enjoy them selves.
