Existing and prospective new players are very welcome to come along to the ground on Tuesday 1 July, at 7.00 p.m. for pre-season trials, prior to the commencement of training proper the following week.

In case it is needed the full address of the ground is The Robert Parker Stadium, Short Lane, Stanwell, TW19 7BH.  If anyone wants to speak to manager Ben Murray, he can be reached on 07903 781121.  Ben is in charge of the ball boys at Wimbledon so he may have to phone you back in the evening if you leave a message.

Pre-season training this season will deliberately be over a shorter period but intense once it gets underway fully the following week.  Fitness will be a primary factor in the Combined Counties League and Ashford intend to have one of the fittest squads in the League come the start of the season on 2 August.

The first warm-up match is on Saturday 12 July when Ashford visit Sheerwater FC from Division One of the League, in what will be the first senior match between the teams since 8 April 1985, when Ashford lost 1-2 at home in a Surrey Premier League match, the Ashford scorer being Alan Browning.

Best wishes go to Chairman Dave Baker who is finally due to undergo his triple heart by-pass operation today at St. Georges Hospital, Tooting.
