A Word from the Chair
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...
September 22nd 2014: Club captain Jason Bourne looks for an improvement in fortunes now that the settling-in period is over.
Stewart Walter won the photography competition, the Royal slant being the deciding factor. A gleaming new season ticket awaits Stewart on Saturday at the gate!

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.
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…
Who else but Captain Marvel Jason Bourne with 33% of the vote!

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.
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.
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:
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”
Can you spot our Captain Fantastic's identity in this photograph?
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.

Tunbridge Wells are delighted to announce the signing of former Whitstable Town striker Dane Luchford from Ryman League outfit Folkestone. Luchford moved to Invicta in 2012 and was a key part of a lethal Folkestone attacking force last season that hit 123 goals - Luchford bagging four goals in a 5-0 win over Sittingbourne - as Invicta finished runners-up in the Ryman League South. In all, he hit 25 goals in 76 starts during his time at Folkestone.
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.
