He initially joined on a loan deal from The Daggers before signing permanently. Marc boats over appearances for the club. Ahmet Rifat Experienced utility man Ahmet started his career at Reading where he also represented England at unders level. He also had a spell at Brentford before signing for The Blues. Ahmet can operate comfortably anywhere on the pitch, although he is often utilised as a centre-half.
Kieron Street A skilful and composed left-back who can also operate at centre-back. Despite injury, the defender who is currently enjoying his second spell at the club, made 18 appearances during last season. During his time in Essex Tommy made five first team appearances. Karl Oliyide Karl Oliyide has come through the Reading youth team. He then joined Northwood for a year, where he won the Most Promising Player award and scored 17 goals.
Joe Sharpe Youth team product Joe has been at the club since the age of nine. The defensive midfielder has enjoyed trials with both Doncaster Rovers and Northampton Town. He has also represented Hertfordshire as well as playing in the Maccabiah Games. Bolle scored 23 goals in 26 appearances for the Lilywhites.
He is a pacey striker with a high workrate. He has also represented England at schoolboy level. Has played for Harrow Borough and Hillingdon Borough, but ruptured his cruciate at age 19 and took a few years to regain fitness. In the past, some of the more geographically isolated non-league clubs have argued that with no big sides on their doorstep, the event had no relevance.
However, the organisers, who run the campaign at their own cost in their spare time, are keen to stress it is, and will always remain, politically neutral. This has manifested itself in a number of beneficial ways, including promotion on official social media channels and gestures of goodwill, such as Arsenal lending Boreham wood FC their team bus. Moreover, as the event grows in stature, it has enabled significant amounts of money to be raised for local and national causes. Many clubs will be running fund raising initiatives for their chosen charities, while Vanarama, the new Football Conference sponsors, have pledged 10p to Prostate Cancer for every fan who turns out to watch a Conference game on the day.
The message the campaign wants to promote is simple. Others simply act as focal points for the local community. Yet, all too often, these clubs struggle to meet basic operational costs, with an increasing number taking voluntary demotion or winding up altogether. I hope that we can continue to work closely together for many seasons to come. Our matchball sponsors today are the Prostate Cancer UK action group Men United, and on a day where non-league football is the main focus of attention in the country, it is only right that we welcome them on board to highlight such an important campaign.
Welcome, too, to our first guests in the new beach huts, we hope that you enjoy the view. What it has also done has promoted the club across the world, and off the back of all the publicity we have signed up new owners and generated a lot of goodwill. Non-League Day is a great opportunity to open the doors to new supporters, for what is a fantastic advert for the semi-professional game.
For those who are new to the Dripping Pan and Lewes Football Club today, this is a place where you can watch honest football, share a pint or two on the terraces and enjoy yourself, free from the ever increasing restrictions and costs of top league football. Here, you can bring in a packed lunch if you want although the food here is excellent!
I look forward to hearing from you. Happy Non-League Day! Kevin Lewesfc. Transfer deadline day. With the squad currently decimated by injuries and suspensions, I am sure that any minute someone of interest will turn up. Actually, only part of the above is true. Yes, I was at the Pan, but it was for our regular board meeting. However, who could resist the madness of transfer deadline day?
The two days in the season when the transfer window closes have become the most important dates in the footballing calendar. Given the opportunity to grab a bargain, normally calm individuals are turned into monsters. Scientists tell us this change in behaviour is related to the science of non-linear dynamic systems, aka Chaos Theory. This theory can be applied perfectly to the madness that occurs on that final day of the transfer window, when panic and desperation replace common sense. Normally prudent football clubs act like kids in a sweet shop, grabbing any players they can as the time ticks down just so they can say to their fans that they have taken part.
The expectations of fans today is that the club has to strengthen at all costs, in many cases just to keep up with Jones United. What other reason can there be for the ever increasing sums of money spent by 20 Premier League clubs? Broken record This summer all records were broken. The cost? When you look at some of the transfers, it is difficult to see how many clubs will ever get a return on their investments.
Whilst Manchester United have been the most successful English club of the past two decades, their record in paying big money for players has been appalling. Incredibly expensive mistakes. Clubs simply do not learn their lessons. West Ham have an appalling record of making panic buys in the transfer windows. So back to a wet and windy Dripping Pan. Just like all other non-league clubs, the transfer window is irrelevant.
Thanks to the quirks of the transfer system in the lower leagues we can bring in players at any time, right up until the final few weeks of the season. Would anyone new be joining the Rooks? Quite possibly, but for now Messrs. Wilson and Bloor were playing their cards very close to their chest. About Nyewood Lane One of the best grounds you will visit on your non-league journeys this season, Nyewood Lane is a great place to spend an afternoon watching a game. It has a couple of small stands for those who want to sit on one side of the pitch, and opposite is a covered terrace that runs almost the whole length of the pitch.
Behind one goal is another covered stand, whilst at the far end there is an open terrace that backs onto the huge and wellappointed club house. If not, then follow the A27 westbound until you reach Chichester. Follow the ringroad until you reach the roundabout with the A where you should take a left, signposted Bognor Regis and follow signs for Town Centre and Seafront for four miles if you reach the hospital you have gone too far. When you reach the traffic lights with Hawthorn Road, take a right and follow for yards, then take a left into Nyewood Lane where the ground is a few hundred yards on your right-hand side.
Street parking is probably the best option. If you come via train, walk up Linden Road and then look for the alleyway on your left-hand side, just after Hillboro Road. Follow this to end and the ground is straight ahead. The walk should take no more than ten minutes. Fancy a beer? It also has a sea-front panorama. What attracted you to the Lewes Ladies job? After meeting with Jacquie, discussing the plans and how the Ladies team are fully encompassed in the club, I just had the feeling that with this support and clear direction I could fulfil my ambitions and help the club achieve theirs.
What were your first impressions of the squad you inherited? I was lucky enough to have managed a team against the current players. I knew from these encounters that the players had a wonderful team ethic, great focus and were a team of winners who could play some great football. Faye Rabson: Faye was already in talks with the club about joining but I had been tracking her progress at Crawley Wasps last year and she has certainly fulfilled what I saw in terms of pace, dribbling ability and goal scoring that she had at Wasps.
She has been a great competitor in the attacking midfield role, joining in attacks quickly and causing a threat to opposition defences.

Hayley West: Hayley played for West Ham for the majority of last season and joined Brighton for their last five games of the season. I brought her in for her competitive nature and flexibility in defence. She loves defending!
She has developed a great deal over the past couple of years and brings a presence to the defence, plus the ability to pass the ball from the back. They played in the top college league nationally and she put in some great performances, both as a winger and striker. Stacey Parkinson: A goalkeeper who played through the centre of excellence at Fulham and has played. She is very agile and a brave shot-stopper, and will certainly help to push the other goalkeepers. What are your targets for the season? We were let down by a few and had injuries for the others.
Our first half performance was excellent and we raced into a lead with two great goals. The first was a great finish from Jon Main, lobbing the goalkeeper from twentyfive yards. The second was just as good from Danny Phillips when his shot went in off the bar. But we started the second half like the first and, for the third quarter we were excellent before Billericay scored out of nothing to get back in the game.
They equalised five minutes later when, again, some sloppy defending led to a goal. We were on the back foot and our bad run of luck continued when, as we broke, a through ball cannoned off the back of the referee, straight to the winger who crossed for the winner. I was absolutely gutted. We had played really well but again come away with nothing. I was fairly angry with our defending, but happy with our performance.
We have a good bunch of lads in the dressing room and they can see we are a good side and our luck will change. Again, this is going to be a very difficult game, but they all are in this league. We need to regroup, trust each other and stay positive to get a result. We need to start building a platform and I thought we did on Saturday and then we can build from there.

Enjoy the game, The Gaffer. May I welcome the officials, players and supporters of the Met Police to our new home this Tuesday evening and, after an enjoyable game and some refreshments, a safe journey home. Well those that thought that the transition from the Ryman North to the Ryman Premier League would be easy have well and truly been proved incorrect!
Here we are playing our fourth game tonight and still no points on the table, but it is not for the lack of effort or commitment from the team. We must take into consideration the players out injured, suspensions carried over from last season and the learning curve for those young players that have not played at this level previously. This is a team game and each matchday there is a bigger team working tirelessly behind the scenes ensuring that we can put a team out each week - I have always said that without this team of volunteers there would never be a successful nonneague programme.
So we must therefore just stick together, support Keith and his team and take our chances when we can. You do not become bad teams or individual footballers overnight. But now is the time to put that all behind us and look forward to the future where our first team can stand up and be counted within this league, and our youth and academy teams can progress whilst being given these excellent facilities to work in. Enjoy the match, Paul Bowden-Brown Director. Last year saw the Met finish in sixth place in the Ryman Premier League, only missing out on a play-off spot on goal difference as well as enjoying a run to the First Round Proper of the FA Cup where the side lost out to League One Crawley.
Cooper has added astutely to his side this season as they seek to go one better than last time out, with Stuart. Searle arriving from Chelmsford as a very capable custodian in goal, as well as Emmanuel Osei from Leiston and Simon Huckle from Kingstonian amongst a number of others. Despite building a whole new side with his summer arrivals, Cooper was still disappointed to see one of his more important midfielders, Ty Smith, depart the club for Canvey Island. Ninety years later, in , the Metropolitan Police Football Club was formed, playing friendly matches until joining the Spartan League in Apart from the war years , the club remained in that competition until During that time the Blues were League Champions eight times, runners-up once and League Cup winners once.
In , the Blues moved to the Isthmian League, becoming one of the founder members of the restructured Division Two. The Blues were runnersup by virtue of a one-goal difference over Dorking. It was a nail-biting finish to a season in which the Blues lost just two league matches, both away. The next two seasons saw the club finish.
The club remained in Division Two for several years, always finishing in the top half but just outside the promotion positions. The Blues finished in 5th position in Division Two and ended the season with a thrilling victory in the Carlsberg Trophy, defeating Collier Row in a penalty shoot-out following a draw after extra-time.

In their first full season in charge, the new management team of Jim Cooper, assisted by Gavin MacPherson and John Nicholson, had an immediate impact and the Met finished 5th in the Division One, thus qualifying for the play-offs where the side lost out to Bromley on penalties. It was play-off heartbreak again a season later as Dover ran out victors against the Met, before further F. However, the club reached the final of the Surrey Senior. Cup for the first time since but was beaten after extra time. The club again finished in the season after and, again, lost out to Cray with a defeat in the play-off final.
Bognor Regis Town had a two-point advantage during the latter stages of the season and that was the situation when the clubs lined up for the final match. The club got off to a flying start and at Christmas found themselves in 4th position but unfortunately fell away in the second half of the season and finished in 12th position.

As well as being the new home of Thamesmead Town F. Come and say hello if you see him around and watch out for updates in match day programmes and on our website. Last Monday, the gaffer and I went to Wealdstone for a game which was a late night, but the gaffer made plenty of notes in his famous black book and we moved onwards to Lowestoft last. We started to play in the second half and kept our shape, looking much more solid after the break. We did have some players missing for that game, but credit to the boys there who took time off of work in order to make it to the meet. Last week the treatment table was full with George shoulder , Shaggy knee ,.
Theo ankle and both Ash and Danny K doing their rehab. Having Carly to work with the boys is a major help as we only get a short time with the lads, and we need as much time as we can with the games coming thick and fast. Tozzer is now back from his enforced break which is a major plus. The start of a new campaign always brings plenty of optimism and fresh hope, but it has been a challenging one on the pitch so far for the Mead in the early stages.
