Work started on the main pitch last week the plan being to have it in tip top condition prior to the first home league match of the season.  The CCL season starts on Saturday 8 August and the fixtures are due to be released on or around 26 July.  There will undoubtedly be a midweek league match, probably on Tuesday 11 August and then, the following Saturday, 15 August, we are straight into the Extra-Preliminary Round of the FA Cup, the draw for which is generally released on or around 1 July.

In the meantime, Football Secretary Geoff Knock and manager Ben Murray have been working upon the pre-season programme.  Ben is not looking to play too many matches and is hoping to build matters up gradually so that the squad is in peak condition for the first league match of the season.  As things currently stand, this is what has been arranged:

Sat 11 July, H. Ash United (back pitch)

Tue 14 July, a. CB Hounslow United

Sat 18 July, H. Loxwood (back pitch)

Tue 21 July, H. Frimley Green (back pitch)

Sat 25 July, H. Ascot United (probably back pitch)

Tue 28 July, H. Cockfosters (main pitch, Middx Charity Cup – sf)

Sat 1 August, TBA depending upon Charity Cup result

Tue 4 August, (POSSIBLE), H. Brentford Development Squad

Although the above situation is correct at the time of writing, pre-season matches by their very nature must be regarded as subject to change.  Any such changes will be notified nearer the time.
