Faversham Town vs Dorking Wanderers – Saturday 10th October, 3pm kick-off (Shepherd Neame Stadium, Salters Lane, Faversham, Kent. Postcode: ME13 8ND).
Town welcome back two but without suspended duo
Faversham Town will welcome back striker Stuart King and midfielder George Monger, as they host third-placed Dorking Wanderers at the Shepherd Neame Stadium.
Monger, 21, and ex-Herne Bay man Stuart King both missed the home side’s FA Trophy Preliminary Round tie against Bury Town last Saturday, in which, Faversham’s 10-men fell to a 1-0 defeat against their in-form Ryman North opponents.
Meanwhile experienced defender John Scarborough, who was sent-off in the defeat against the Ryman North outfit, will also be available with his suspension not due to kick-in until next Saturday’s trip to Folkestone Invicta.
However, midfielder David Botterill and frontman Dean Grant will be banned.
Grant will serve a one-game suspension for an accumulation of yellow cards this season, which he was due to serve in Town’s Robert Dyas League Cup tie against Folkestone, before the tie was rearranged.
Midfielder David Botterill will also continue a three-match suspension following his red card in the 2-1 loss against South Park.
Ray Turner’s men will be desperate to end an eight-match winless streak that has seen the Lilywhites drop down to 12th place in the Ryman South League Table on 17 points off 12 league fixtures.
But the task will not be an easy one.
The visitors, who came second in the Sussex County League last term, have made an impressive start to Ryman League football and are on 24 points off 12 games, seven points better off than their opponents and just four points behind League leaders Folkestone.
The away team also expect to have new signing Jake Beecroft available for selection.
This contest is believed to be the first meeting between the two sides, since Faversham Town reformed.
