Photo: Games coming thick and fast: Next at Culverden - Woodstock Sports...

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.

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.

With the new season upon us, and all possible preparation complete, the squad is all fit and excited to get started again! As always the Kent league is wide open with Greenwich Borough heavily investing, and a pick of probably another 4-5 others in the mix as serious title contenders. Getting a good start is going be key to ensuring a push for promotion.

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.

It was good to see all pre-season friendlies well supported, and I'm sure the club will not sit back and settle without raising the attendances yet again this year.

On a personal note it's a big season for me, being my 11th at the club, and am told I have ten more appearance to break a long standing club record currently held by Tony Atkins (410). That would be an immensely proud moment for me and my family. I just hope to add the Kent League to that record so the club can move forward to where it belongs!
