It is with regret that Simon has decided to take up the opportunity to manage Chipstead FC of the Ryman South league. Simon brought a wealth of football and commercial knowledge to the Board and we are sad to see him leave after such a short time with us. However, we do understand the lure of the challenge that Simon has accepted and wish him well in his new venture.

January 19th 2015: I pen these just after another exciting Vase game away to Highworth. The month has seen us build momentum...
Ahead of Saturday’s all-important FA Vase Fourth Round Replay at home to Highworth Town (kick-off 3pm), www.tunbridgewellsfc.com caught up with first team boss Martin Larkin to find out how preparations have been going as they attempt to reach the last 16 of the competition.

If The Wells can overcome Highworth Town at Culverden next Saturday in the FA Vase replay, it’ll be back to Wiltshire again – this time near Bath for a fourth consecutive away tie in the last 16. Bradford Town await the winner after today’s FA Vase Fifth Round Draw at FA Headquarters - the tie will be played on February 7th.
A fine result away at Deal Town sets up next weeks FA Vase game nicely. I have spoken many times about the fantastic support that we have but yesterday the support given to the Team away at Deal was absolutely superb. When you consider the facts two pitch inspections, a windy and chilly afternoon and the small matter of the 160 mile round trip I certainly didn't expect to see so many familiar faces. I am sure that the travelling fans accounted for around half of the gate of 101. My thanks to each and everyone of you who made the trip.
Your MotM v Highworth Town in a close poll was Lee Radford with 31% of the vote. Well done Lee!!!
Tunbridge Wells are poised to embark on another raiding party to the West in the FA Vase – this time in Wiltshire with Highworth Town being the destination and a place in the last 16 the prize. The Worthians - as Highworth are known - are in the Fourth Round of the competition for the first time.
Tunbridge Wells have this morning announced that Dane Luchford has opted to leave Culverden to test himself at Ryman Premier League level.
“Having spoken with Dane this morning he has had an offer from a Ryman Premier club to join their squad, and with Dane very keen to test himself at that level we have agreed he will join up with them straight away," first team boss Martin Larkin told www.tunbridgewellsfc.com.
I just wanted to thank everyone who travelled last night to Fisher to support us. It baffles me a little how year after year we get midweek games so far from Tunbridge Wells with all the rush hour London traffic, so it was even more fantastic to see so many fans there being as loud and supportive as always.
A new year, new challenges! On the Football Side of things Martin has the Team ticking along nicely, well positioned in the league, still in the SCEFL Challenge Cup and of course in the final 32 of the FA Vase. So the Football side is now challenging the Board to ensure that we remain one league in front of the Team. In terms of the Ground we are graded for Ryman Football which is a tremendous relief, now if the Team perform it will not be the Stadium that is holding us back. However now we have to dig deep in many other areas:
