FAVERSHAM TOWN – HOME / RYMAN LEAGUE DIV 1 S...

  It started with dramatic late goals and it was fitting that the season – at home, anyway – should finish with yet another one. Substitute Keanu Williams got the 90th minute winner to cap a superb Sittingbourne fightback which overcame local rivals Faversham. It gave Sittingbourne their highest points total for eight seasons – with one more game still to go – and in front of their second biggest home crowd of the season. Not only did the match finish in style for Sittingbourne, but what followed immediately afterwards was just as memorable in its own way. Both manager Nick Davis and captain Jono Richardson brought their young children...

DORKING WANDERERS – HOME / RYMAN LEAGUE DIV ...

FINAL SCORE: SITTINGBOURNE 0 DORKING WANDERERS 1 PLAYED 18TH MARCH 2017   A brave effort by Sittingbourne to halt the highly-organised juggernaut that is Dorking Wanderers’ drive for football at a higher level. In the end, one goal settled it as Dorking became only the second team this season, along with runaway league leaders Tooting and Mitcham, to complete a double over Sittingbourne. But this was much tougher for them than the home 3-0 win over December, though the fact they’ve kept two clean sheets against Sittingbourne this season tells its own story. Sittingbourne made four changes from the team that drew at Chipstead the...

CHIPSTEAD – AWAY / RYMAN LEAGUE DIV 1 SOUTH

CHIPSTEAD – AWAY / RYMAN LEAGUE DIV 1 SOUTH It’s hard to believe that Chipstead’s Picturesque ground is only a few minutes from the M25, and like ours ground it’s not that close to the main conurbation and that was reflected in the small crowd of 70, quite a few coming from Sittingbourne. Sittingbourne had another new signing making his debut in Keanu Williams who has signed from Margate and he had a sensational start to his Sittingbourne career by scoring with just over 1 minute on the clock. The goal came  from another recent signing  Kane Phillip who ran down the right and crossed inside to Williams who bundled the ball past a...

GODALMING TOWN – HOME / RYMAN LEAGUE DIV 1 SOUTH FINAL SCORE: SITTINGBOURNE 2 GODALMING TOWN 1 PLAYED 04TH MARCH 2017   Perhaps I’m getting mellow in my old age, but I felt sorrier for Godalming than I was delighted for Sittingbourne when the injury time winner went in. The bottom-of-the-table side had fought hard throughout and should really have been in front if they’d taken some great chances. But having run themselves into the ground, they stopped tackling and chasing in the last 10 minutes and Sittingbourne grabbed the initiative to take all three points. It was by no means the Brickies’ finest performance – they’ve played...

HYTHE TOWN – AWAY / RYMAN LEAGUE DIV 1 SOUTH FINAL SCORE: HYTHE TOWN 2 SITTINGBOURNE 1 PLAYED 25TH FEBRUARY 2017 Sittingbourne rallied hard, and they rallied well, but it was all a bit too late as Hythe Town held on for the win they desperately wanted in their challenge for a play-off place. The fact that goalkeeper Simon Overland was by far Sittingbourne’s best player tells its own story,  as not only was he their best but he was also their busiest much of the time. Hythe dominated  a lot of the game in their bid for revenge for a 4-0 defeat at Sittingbourne earlier in the season, but when the Brickies got at them in the final stages...
