Modern day football, even at our level, at times loses a sense of proportion. Years ago Bill Shankly stated that a game of football was more important than life or death so it is nice when you can reflect on an individual within our Football Club that has his feet firmly on the ground. A person who epitomises values that are sadly lacking in much of today's game, integrity, trust, leadership, discipline, focus, quite frankly he is inspirational, an example to us all.

September 22nd 2014: Club captain Jason Bourne looks for an improvement in fortunes now that the settling-in period is over.
Analysis by Matt Harris with Craig Methven
So far we’ve watched a mixed start to the Season as the new-look squad pulls together and gels, although the end of September did show an uptick with two wins on the bounce. As club captain Jason Bourne pointed out in his online blog at the end of September, the side has had enough games to get to know each other now, and as October arrives it’s time to get the business done on the pitch.
With a staggering (and record-breaking) 63% of the vote, midfield maestro, all-rounder and substitute goalie Tom Davey! Congratulations Tom!
This week has seen the addition of two new names in the squad - the first, Curtis George - will need little introduction after he scored the winning goal on his debut at Lingfield on Tuesday night. The second, Rudolf Brenyah, a Dutch winger/midfielder signed forms today.
Debutante striker Curtis George with an impressive 42% of the vote. Welcome Curtis and well done!!

Following the weekend’s FA Cup defeat at Holmesdale, Tunbridge Wells can look forward to getting back to league action this week, beginning with a trip down the A21 to Sevenoaks Town on Wednesday night. Having appointed Micky Collins as manager in the summer, The Oaks have been rebuilding, and the likes of Andy Constable and former football league player Simon Osbourne, along with a host of other useful signings promise to give Martin Larkin's troop a real test.

Tunbridge Wells maintained the momentum at home to Lingfield, winning 2-0 and ensuring no goals have been conceded in 180 minutes of football. At the other end, Brendon Cass hit his fourth goal of the season within less than 30 seconds of kick-off – all of which leaves first team boss Martin Larkin a happy man…
As documented last night via the club’s Twitter and Facebook pages, Tunbridge Wells play Woodstock Sports in the First Round of the Kent Senior Trophy this year, a game to be played at Culverden on Saturday, October 18. However, a juicy incentive potentially awaits in the Second Round that could offer the extra spark to get Martin Larkin’s troops over the Woodstock hurdle…

Tunbridge Wells got the 2014/15 campaign off to a winning start at Cray Valley PM with a 3-0 win and a hat-trick from Brendon Cass in his competitive debut for The Wells. Cray Valley will undoubtedly prove themselves to be a solid outfit over the course of the season and the win pleased first team boss Martin Larkin.
Martin Larkin is a day away from sending his new-look side out to kick off season 2014/15 at Cray Valley PM. It’s been a busy summer on the pitch; a summer in which the side that took The Wells to Wembley in 2013 has been broken up – the core remains, but added experience and leadership has been brought in as part of a bid to help take this club to the next level.
