On behalf of the club I would like to thank and congratulate Derrick Matthews on his third place in the Isthmian League Groundsman of the Year awards that were presented by the FA this week, this adds to the runners-up spot that he earned the previous season in the Southern League.

A big thank you also to Kevin Taylor who regularly helps in keeping the SKYex pitch as good as it is and with it again looking splendid this season who knows what will happen at next years awards, here's hoping.
