Match Report v Holmesdale
It’s probably fair to say The Wells never really expected to win the FA Cup in May 2015; however we went into this extra-preliminary round game...
Games coming thick and fast
Martin Larkin discusses the week ahead....
A Word from the Chair
Well the close season has been and gone, the pre-season has been and gone and now we start the season proper, where oh where did the summer go!

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.
Well the close season has been and gone, the pre-season has been and gone and now we start the season proper, where oh where did the summer go! Expectation at this point of the season is always high. This season 20 Teams, 20 squads, 20 committees and 20 twenty sets of supporters will be a buzz with hope, doubt and just a tinge of nervousness as the first balls are kicked at 3:00pm on the 9th August. Tunbridge Wells Football Club will be no different but I feel confident that we as a Football Club are moving in the right direction and here are my three reasons for optimism!
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.

Martin has, without doubt, put together a team of leaders and winners, and with a good blend of exciting youngsters, the back four has had a few adjustments that we will build a team upon.

Tunbridge Wells boss Martin Larkin reacted quickly to pull off a coup and secure the services of central defender Nick Davis. He was joint-manager at Sittingbourne last season and has hundreds of games under his belt playing Ryman and Conference level football before becoming available in July.
By way of welcoming him to Culverden, www.tunbridgewellsfc.com caught up with Nick to find out more about The Wells’ latest signing.
Nick Davis has joined Tunbridge Wells. Davis stepped down as joint manager of Ryman League side Sittingbourne earlier this month. An experienced central defender, he also lists Maidstone United, Tonbridge and Ramsgate among his former clubs.
Season 2014/15 kicks off with an away game at Cray Valley PM on August 9th, breaking a long run of years in which the campaign has kicked off at Culverden. Lingfield – newly transferred from the Sussex Countly League – will provide the opposition for The Wells’ first home game on Tuesday, August 12th.
Tunbridge Wells have announced the signing of two more additions for Season 2014/15. As Martin Larkin’s squad takes shape, George Benner (pictured) and Matt Parsons have put pen to paper.
George Benner joins from Herne Bay. Prior to joining Bay, however, he was with Erith & Belvedere and was a key figure is their Kent League and Cup double winning season two years ago.
