Lilywhites back to full strength for top-of-the-table clash

Faversham Town will have virtually a full strength squad available for their top-of-the-table clash against runaway leaders Burgess Hill Town.

The Lilywhites beat Carshalton Athletic 5-0 on Tuesday evening to move four points clear of third-placed Folkestone Invicta and also boost their goal difference.

However, the options available for the home side will still be bolstered, ahead of the visit of the Hillians.

Striker Dean Grant and defender Matthew Bourne will return from suspension, while midfielder David Botterill hopes to recover from illness

Town boss Ray Turner admitted the return of the trio means he will “have to drop two out of the squad for Saturday’s match.”

Meanwhile, manager Turner will also have several decisions to make when selecting the Faversham starting line-up in defence, midfield and attack.

One man, who will not be involved in the Lilywhite line-up though, is striker Luke Harvey, who scored inside the first two minutes when the teams met earlier this season.

However, goals from Joe Keehan and Lee Harding meant Burgess Hill bagged a 2-1 win.

The front man has since left the club and joined Kent rivals Hythe Town.

Meanwhile, when the two outfits last met at the Shepherd Neame Stadium, the hosts bagged a 2-1 win through goals from Harvey and Aidan Sherlock.

The West Sussex side have only lost once in the Ryman South this campaign to Whyteleafe, who also beat Turner’s men 3-2 recently, and are on the brink of sealing the Ryman South title.

They require just seven points from their last seven league fixtures to seal first spot.

Though, the home team will be keen to prove their own Ryman Premier League credentials.

Here’s your opportunity to predict the outcome of this encounter:

Dean Grant will return from suspension.

Lilywhites look to cement second spot

Faversham Town will again be without suspended duo Dean Grant and Matthew Bourne for one final time, as they look to cement second-place in the Ryman South League Table.

The Lilywhites booked their place in the Ryman South Play-offs and moved back up to second in the table on Saturday with a 4-1 victory over Walton & Hersham through goals from Wayne Wilson, Josh Stanford, Jack Harris and Renford Tenyue.

It underlined the strength in depth in manager Ray Turner’s squad with key players Bourne, 28, and Grant both banned.

The 28-year-old defender had been missed a week earlier in Town’s last home game when they lost 3-2 to Whyteleafe.

Whereas Grant, 24, scored the only goal of the original contest, which was postponed after 30 minutes following an injury to Carshalton’s Jerome Walker.

In addition, when the two outfits met earlier this season at the War Memorial Sports Ground, 24-year-old Grant bagged a brace in the away team’s 2-1 win. 

The hosts know this will be a critical fixture in their bid to finish second ahead of Folkestone Invicta and Merstham with runaway league leaders Burgess Hill Town the next to visit the Shepherd Neame Stadium on Saturday.

In contrast, the Robins are mid-table and have little to play for this term, except pride.

They are 10 points clear of the relegation zone but also over 20 points adrift of the last Play-off position with seven league matches to go.

Here’s your chance to predict the outcome of this encounter:

Youth round-up – 22/03/2015

Faversham Town’s under-18, under-15 and under-14 teams were in action today (Sunday) with the u16 outfit the only side to have the week off.

The under-18 team drew 1-1 away at Holland & Blair, having drawn to the same opposition by the same scoreline last weekend at home with Jake Salthouse on the scoresheet for the Lilywhites.

The results mean Faversham will now need Holland & Blair to drop points in their final five fixtures if they are to finish in the top three of the Kent Youth League, South Division Table.

Town set-up a title showdown next weekend, as they won 4-3 against Dover Athletic through goals from Jamie Sherlock, club captain Chris Baker, Harry Beare and Matt Chatten.

Faversham Town’s and Ramsgate’s under-15 teams will now meet in a fixture, which will virtually decide the destiny of the Kent Youth League, South Division title.

The Lilywhites are top of the League Table, and for them, the situation is simple. A win will see them collect the title after an excellent season.

However, while next weekend’s encounter will end Town’s league schedule, the visitors still have a further four matches in hand.

With a better goal difference than the Lilywhites, the Rams would then head into their following fixtures knowing exactly what they need to do to overhaul the home side and top the pile.

A draw between the outfits would leave Ramsgate needing four wins, while a victory on the Abbey School’s 3G pitch would mean they would be only eight points behind their opponents.

From there, they could win two and draw two of their remaining fixtures or win three and lose the other to overtake Faversham.

There is also the slim possibility Bredhurst Juniors could also snatch the title.

For details on this home fixture, please see the poster at the bottom of this post.

Meanwhile, the u14 side lost 5-1 away at Herne Bay Youth.

Kick-off at 10.30am on Sunday 29th March on the Abbey School's 3G pitch.
