Tanners 1 - 1 Maidstone

Leatherhead played out an entertaining friendly that they were unlucky not to win. 

Maidstone did take control over the first ten minutes and forced our new ‘keeper into a good save but soon it was Leatherhead who looked the more confident side.  Leatherhead pressed well which forced a strong Maidstone side into mistakes.  A Tomi free kick looked destined for the top corner but for a heroic diving save from the visiting ‘keeper.  A less heroic dive was later seen by a Leatherhead support who tried to save his beer from a wide shot only to land on the floor.

Academy product, Callum Davis, opened the scoring to continue his impressive preseason run.   A powerful shot from outside the box could only be parried up in the air for the striker to head the ball into an open net.

Second half and Vas started to look a bit more interested in the game.  It was his shot from outside the box that levelled the match, although there was more than a touch of the Joe Harts about the attempted save.

Leatherhead responded well and should have maybe gone on to score two more.  A new striker broke free and beat the ‘keeper only for the flag to go up for offside.  Hughes Mason then hit the inside of the post with the rebound rolling along the line rather than into the back of the net.

1-1 is not to be sniffed at and now to prepare for the next big showdown.  The AGM on Thursday night…

Travelling Tanners

Leatherhead take in their next friendly away at Margate.  Not the obvious choice, the smaller club often hosting the friendly but I am sure it is good preparation.

Pre-season underway

Leatherhead’s pre-season got underway on Friday night with a 2-2 draw away at Corinthians.  This is a fixture we play every year, yet it somehow eludes me and still remains a ground for me to tick off.

Tuesday night Leatherhead play away at East Grinstead.  Directions can be found here.

Season Ticket Renewal

The club have asked me to mention season tickets are now on sale…

“The club are now able to offer the opportunity to buy a season ticket for next season under the Early Bird offer. For details please see the attached Application Form and the informative Membership Summary.

Last year the club offered a very special deal on season tickets.  Although many took up the offer the gate receipts went down by considerably more than the extra income from season tickets.

The good news is that we have gone back to the popular Early Bird offer of previous seasons and the adult season ticket prices under this offer are £5 lower than they were two seasons ago.

SEASON TICKET
£175 Adults
£125 Over 65s/Students
£55 Juniors (under 16)
 
Please contact Richard Bligh directly here.

Faversham are coming

OK; the prospect of hosting Faversham isn’t away to South Park exciting, but it is exciting all the same. 

Tonight Dorking Wanderers host our old friends from Kent in the Ryman South play-off semifinal.  Early tweets suggested it would be advance ticket only but I am sure if you get there early enough you may be in luck.  I have my ticket: so there.

Kick off at 7.45.  See you there!
