NOVEMBER PREVIEW

Analysis by Matt Harris & Craig Methven

Theoretically, The Wells have four league matches scheduled for November – two at home and two away. We say ‘theoretically’ because the previous couple of years have been quite thin on the ground where League action is concerned to the point that it’s difficult to know how to get statistics spanning the seven years for league action alone. As the evenings draw in, the floodlights come on and the fog begins to roll, Novembers traditionally offer plenty of cup action, and that’s where we start this time around.

TWFC support Mind programmes.

Tunbridge Wells Football Club are proud to support the two 8 week therapeutic programmes starting in November for men and women who may be experiencing things such as anxiety, depression and low self esteem. These programmes are delivered by Mind and funded by Tunbridge Wells Borough Council’s public health budget.

Starting in November, these programmes will take place at the Community Centre in TN2. They are free for participants. For more information, click on the images below.

Football, football, football

Tunbridge Wells Football Club is delighted to announce that BT Sports has now been installed at the Clubhouse. The board hope that this will enhance the match day experience at the Culverden and give people the chance to see premiership games whilst enjoying a drink at the Lock and Load bar. On days when there are live premiership games we are pleased to inform you that the gates will open at 12:00 midday. There are some big games coming up, detailed below, so please take advantage of this new facility.

CUP WEEK PREVIEW

Tunbridge Wells’ response to the Erith disappointment was pretty clear for all to see on Saturday at Croydon, and means the side have enjoyed three wins in the last four league matches.

At a point some might want to see league momentum build further, The Wells have two cup ties this week that could either be seen as a distraction, or a great opportunity, depending on your perspective. First team boss Martin Larkin is firmly in the latter camp, as he speaks with www.tunbridgewellsfc.com about the week ahead…

FA VASE DRAW - REACTION

Tunbridge Wells have drawn Rochester United at home in the FA Vase First Round Proper. The tie will be played on November 1 at Culverden, KO 3pm.

“A draw against a side from the same division isn’t ideal, but it’s at home so we will treat it like we do each game and do our homework,” noted first team boss Martin Larkin in response to the draw.

Although The Wells are only entering the Vase at the First Round stage, Rochester entered in the previous (Second Qualifying) round, and beat Sussex League Division Two outfit Bexhill United 6-2 away on Saturday.

A Word from the Chairman - October 5th 2014

The result against Erith Town was as poor as the weather was in the first half, however, when things are not going for us let us concentrate on all of the positive things that have happened at the football club. Let us also remember that it was only a week a go that we were waxing lyrical about the victory over Beckenham. I am delighted to inform you that at the recent ground grading inspection the Culverden was passed fit for the next level of Football. This grading has been the focus of the Board's efforts for the past 15 months.

Squad changes

With the additions to the squad it has unfortunately meant some departures as players seek first team football. Martin has therefore released the following players:

Aaron Lacy
Jamie O’Connell

Martin explained “Aaron has been great in his short time with us, he has helped change the mentality in the changing room but unfortunately will find his playing time limited, so we wish him well for the rest of the season, we have also had approaches in for Jamie who we have been unable to give game time to so his forms have also been released”

DANE LUCHFORD INTERVIEW

If first team boss Martin Larkin was looking to top up on winning mentality to help drive his side on for the season, he appears to have found a rich vein in new signing Dane Luchford.

Dane joins from Ryman League Folkestone Invicta, and www.tunbridgewellsfc.com made contact with him to find out more about our newest recruit...

TWFC: Dane, firstly, welcome to Culverden! Tell us about your footballing career to date.
