Reported by East Grinstead Courier - Ryman League meeting: East Grinstead Town 'recommended for promotion'

East Grinstead Town are set to be promoted to the Ryman League Division One South after the league held a meeting yesterday.

Officials from the Ryman League recommended the Wasps be promoted having finished second in the Sussex County League, with champions East Preston unable to go up.

The decision will not be confirmed until a meeting of a wider league committee on May 15 - but things are looking good for Simon Funnell's men.

A Ryman League spokesperson described the chances of the committee confirming the promotion as a "near-certainty".
Above: courtesy of East Grinstead Courier

Chairman Richard Tramontin had this to say: "I was at a meeting of the East Grinstead Sports Council tonight together with a sports journalist from the East Grinstead Courier and after the meeting he asked me for my comments following yesterday's Ryman League meeting. I had to say I didn't know anything about it and asked him to fill me in! I then saw I had received a couple of texts during tonight's meeting asking if I knew anything and could only confirm that as a club, we hadn't heard anything. It's interesting to hear the recommendations but we can only wait to hear what will be finally decided and which league we will be playing in next season. Another factor is that there is a possibility that if we don't get promoted to Ryman, we may not be playing in the Sussex County League next season but could be laterally moved by the FA to the Southern Counties East or the Combined Counties Football League. The uncertainty is not helpful but hopefully we will know more by the end of next week."

"Meanwhile, the construction work for the facility upgrade is progressing well and the pitch is already looking good following the extensive end-of-season renovation work."


He added: "I would like to thank all the people that visited Bob Smith and I on our EGTFC stall at the Lions Club May Fair on Bank Holiday Monday. It was great to hear the support and good wishes from everyone and thanks to those who supported the club by buying Wasps footballs, mugs and scarves."

Ringmer 0, East Grinstead Town 3

Three second half goals in the final game of the season secured the runners-up spot in Division One of the Sussex County League for Wasps this afternoon at the Caburn Ground..............[Match report] Photos courtesy of East Grinstead Courier.

This will hopefully mean promotion to the Ryman Isthmian League South Division at Step 4 of the FA National League System and the highest level that the club has ever played at.


Grand finale

Wasps travel to Ringmer today for the last match of the season knowing that a win will guarantee the runners-up spot and potential promotion to Ryman South. They start the day 2 points ahead of Littlehampton who have a better goal difference of 1 and 3 points ahead of Horsham YMCA who have a far better goal difference than both teams. Littlehampton travel to Newhaven and YMCA host Chichester City. A draw for Wasps will see them finish at least third and a loss could see them drop to fourth. It's going to be a tense afternoon and if you can't make it to Ringmer you can follow progress on Twitter.

We are hoping for a good travelling support to get behind the team in their final push.

Whatever the outcome, it's been a great season for East Grinstead Town, particularly when you consider the poor start when at the end of September and after 7 games, we were 4th from bottom with only six points!

Come on you Wasps!!

Littlehampton Town 3, East Grinstead Town 0

Wasps dropped to third in the table after a disappointing display at Littlehampton. Grinstead had a good first five minutes but then the hosts got the upper hand and were sharper and quicker in closing down. They went in at the break one up through Jason Jarvis and despite Wasps starting the second half brightly they found themselves two behind after 28 minutes through George Gaskin who added a third two minutes before the end. Sam Schaaf had to go off with an ankle injury and is very doubtful for Monday's local derby at Lingfield..............[Match report]

Full steam ahead at the GAC Stadium

Following the last home match of the season last Saturday against Crowborough, the gates have been shut at the GAC Stadium and it's full steam ahead with the major facility upgrade which started in earnest on Monday. First to go was the changing room block (which were in the spot where the digger is in the middle photo). Next to go were the boardroom and kitchen.

Gates are locked for the major facility upgrade Next in line for demolition, the boardroom and kitchen Cleared
As the last home match has been played and the ground not being usable during the construction period, the end-of-season pitch renovation was carried out this week by SJK. First came the total pitch scarfication in two directions and vacuuming of the arisings, followed by application of top dressing in low areas, goalmouths and linesmen's runs, then vertidraining, spreading of 60 tons of sand, followed by earthquaking, secondary sandbanding the length of the pitch with 40 tons of sand and dragmatting. After the preparatory work, the entire pitch was then drill seeded and fertilised.

East Grinstead Town 8, Worthing United 0

Wasps thrashed bottom of the table Worthing United tonight despite being without the injured Sam Schaaf, John Sinclair and George Hiller-Jones and with Marc Pelling on the bench. Dan Turner opened the scoring on 8 minutes and Michael Belli added two more before half time. Matt Geard added a fourth 13 minutes after the restart and then Rhys White came on after an hour and scored a hat-trick with Scott Johnston getting the sixth. Wasps finished the last 15 minutes with 10 men after Guy Harding went off injured after Simon Funnell had already used three subs..............[Full Match report]

The win puts Wasps in clear second, three points above Crowborough who are the vistors on Saturday (ko 3pm). Littlehampton in third place are six points behind Wasps with two games in hand, the first being tomorrow night when they host League Champions East Preston.

Footie Fun Day 2014

Work will shortly be commencing on a major facility improvement project at our ground which will include new changing rooms, first aid room, hospitality area, kit/plant room, kitchen and externally accessed toilets, plus a turnstile block, a covered area to the side of the clubhouse, emergency vehicle access and a re-graded and resurfaced car park.

Due to the time required to complete this project and for health and safety reasons we have unfortunately had to take the decision to cancel Footie Fun Day this year.

We regret having to cancel this long running and highly successful tournament but it will be back next year even better than ever and with greatly enhanced facilities.

We look forward to welcoming back all our regular teams next year and hope that you all appreciate our desire to give everyone that uses our ground the best possible facilities.

East Grinstead Town 3, Hailsham Town 0

Wasps moved into second place after this afternoon's 3-0 win over Hailsham, despite missing Sam Schaaf and John Sinclair through injuries picked up on Tuesday and George Hiller-Jones who fractured his collar bone at East Preston last week..............[Full Match report]

With Littlehampton losing to St Francis, Wasps are three points above them although Littlehampton have a game in hand. Crowborough are on the same points as Grinstead but have played one more match. Wasps host Crowborough next Saturday and then travel to Littlehampton the following Saturday so the outcome of those two matches may well decide who finishes runner-up to East Preston who didn't play today but were confirmed as Champions following Littlehampton's defeat.

Next up for Simon Funnell's men are bottom club Worthing United on Tuesday at the GAC Stadium (ko 7.30pm).

Wasps reserves made the short journey to Lingfield this afternoon and despite going behind, won 4-1 with Tizi Maninga getting a hat-trick.

East Preston 0, East Grinstead Town 2

Wasps pulled off a well deserved 2-0 victory this afternoon against previously undefeated runaway league leaders East Preston. The teams were level at the break with Simon Funnell's men having edged the half and restricted the home side to a couple of attempts on goal with Belli, Pelling and Schaaf coming close for Wasps. 12 minutes after the break Kieron Pemmant won the ball down the right and crossed to Sam Schaaf who slipped, got back up, turned and scored to put Wasps one up. Pamment himself then scored in the 65th minute following some neat interplay down the centre of the pitch..............[Full Match report]

The result moves East Grinstead Town to within one point of Littlehampton Town in second place, with Littlehampton going down 4-1 to Lingfield.

In their first match for a month, Wasps grabbed all three points at Shoreham this afternoon, although the scoreline flattered. Sam Schaaf scored from the penalty spot after Dave Gellatly's cross was handled in the area. Gellatly made it 2-0 with Schaaf the provider after an interception by Michael Belli. Shoreham had Carl Dunk sent off for his second yellow card on 74 minutes. The win puts Grinstead into 4th spot above Horsham YMCA who lost to second placed Littlehampton. Crowborough remain in third spot three points ahead of Wasps who have three games in hand..............[Full Match report]

Up next are St Francis Rangers on Tuesday evening at the GAC Stadium (ko 7.30). They thrashed Selsey 5-0 this afternoon on the back of a 2-1 away win at Newhaven last Tuesday.


The reserves last 8-0 at home to Premier League leaders Sutton United in the Suburban League Champions Cup semi final.

East Grinstead Town 2, Three Bridges 0

Wasps entertained their Ryman League near neighbours tonight in a friendly on the East Grinstead Sports Club 3G pitch, a good workout for both teams after so long without a competitive fixture because of postponements. John Sinclair opened the scoring with a fierce volley with Craig Goodsir netting Wasps' second after some good work down the right flank by Carlo Castrechino. Fingers crossed that the SCFL Division One match on Saturday at Shoreham goes ahead. Shoreham hosted Crowborough Athletic tonight and lost 2 - 0 elevating the visitors to second place, one point behind Littlehampton who were beaten 2 - 0 at home by Pagham.

Reserves match off

Tonight's reserve match against Welling United in the Suburban Challenge Shield has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.>br>
Given the backlog of fixtures and the non-availability of our home ground after 12th April because of major ground improvement work amd because some other teams in our Group are unable to host Shield fixtures, EGTFC have been withdrawn from the Shield competition. The scheduled fixture on 1st March at home against Bromley has been rescheduled to a home league match against Raynes Park Vale.

Wasps reserves have only played 8 league matches so far this season, the lowest of any side in the South Division and 6 fewer than some others.

Tonight's Reserve match at Horsham YMCA has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

With the water that's lying on the pitch at the GAC Stadium today and with this persistant rain, the chances of the reserves home match against Westfield in the Suburban Challenge Shield going ahead on Saturday are remote.

Supporting football in the Community


Help East Grinstead Town FC Secure a Brighter Future with £100,000 Cash Injection

-Football fans asked to vote for local club by Budweiser and The FA-

Courtesy of the Budweiser Club Futures programme, non-league East Grinstead Town FC is set to go head-to-head with seven other clubs for a chance of securing £100,000 worth of funding in a fans’ vote.

The fortunes of the Sussex County League Division One side have already changed significantly, following the announcement last month that the club had successfully secured £50,000 through the programme. This funding will help the club carry out much needed renovations on their main stand and changing rooms.

A further £100,000 would transform the club even further, allowing it to build on site training facilities such as a 3G pitch, helping to reduce costs of training elsewhere and leaving a lasting legacy for the youth teams.

The award of the £100,000 Super Grant will mean that Budweiser has injected £1million directly into non-league football in the UK through the Club Futures programme over two seasons, as part of its FA Cup sponsorship.

Football fans can now decide which club they want to see receive the £100,000 Super Grant. From 27 January until 28 February 2014, fans can view short videos from each club online at www.facebook.com/budweiseruk and cast their vote to choose the winner.

The ambition of Budweiser Club Futures has been to help clubs to help themselves, with the grant recipients using the funding to improve their facilities and make their club more financially sustainable. These funds help the clubs secure their place at the heart of communities, in turn helping to ensure the future of the beautiful game at the grassroots level across the UK.

Budweiser Club Futures is also supported by the Football Foundation, who help choose the grant recipients each season, and The FA Facilities and Investment team, who provide advice and guidance to the non-league clubs applying.

Richard Tramontin, Chairman of East Grinstead Town, said: "Securing a £50,000 Club Futures grant was absolutely fantastic news for East Grinstead Town Football Club. The grant will enable us to provide modern, clean facilities for our players and supporters. It is also a great legacy for a future generation of footballers in East Grinstead and the surrounding area. Great credit must go to Budweiser who are engaging so strongly with non-league football in this country, and now they are giving eight clubs the chance to secure an additional £100,000 worth of funding. Winning this would go a long way to securing the future of football in East Grinstead."

Budweiser Club Futures ambassador, Alan Pardew, said: “Eight clubs have already received a significant amount of money at the £50,000 stage, but the £100,000 Super Grant injection will be like a huge lottery win for one club. I’d encourage all football fans to cast their vote for the Super Grant winner to help change the future of clubs like East Grinstead.

“Being involved with this programme for the last two seasons has evoked some great memories. Having started my career at non-league, I’ve said all along I appreciate just how hard it is to sustain a local club, which is why the Budweiser Club Futures programme is so important. It’s been fantastic to see the difference the funding has made to all the recipients.”


Budweiser Senior Brand Manager Christian Flouch, said: “Non-league clubs are really important to the future of the beautiful game and to local communities. We’ve started seeing some great results following improvements made by the clubs from season one, so look forward to similar results this season and wish all clubs luck in the Facebook vote.”

All clubs across Steps 5-7 have received ‘Running a Sustainable Club’, a guidance booklet to help them become more sustainable. Clubs wishing to receive a free copy can email FacilitiesInfo@thefa.com.

To find out more about why you should vote for East Grinstead Town FC visit www.facebook.com/budweiseruk or www.facebook.com/thefacup from 27 January 2014.

The eight winning clubs all in Steps 5-7 of the English football pyramid, are: East Grinstead Town FC – South East, Bedfont Sports FC – London, Parley Sports Club – South West, Bromsgrove Sporting FC – West Midlands, Basford United – East Midlands, Handsworth Junior Sporting Club – North East, Wythenshawe Amateurs FC – North West and Linton Granta FC – East

:: Tuesday 21st January 2014 :: back to top Go to the top of the page
East Grinstead Town 4, Lancing 2

Wasps return to winning ways, but were made to work hard by a stubborn Lancing side who never gave up, but in the end the hosts’ quality in the final third told. Rance gave Lancing the lead, but Schaaf equalised for the Wasps before the break. Hiller-Jones then gave Simon Funnell’s side the lead, only for Wotherspoon to draw the visitors level moments later. However, three points were secured by the hosts with goals from Pelling and then Belli in stoppage time..............[Full Match report]

Pagham 3, East Grinstead Town 2

Poor result on a very difficult pitch. Wasps took the lead through Ben King who played up front with Sam Schaaf unavailable. They then proceeded to gift their hosts two goals and went in at the break trailing. Another poor goal saw them fall further behind five minutes into the second half. The introduction of substitutes Craig Goodsir and Rhys White had a postive impact and White started causing Pagham problems. Before going off, Tre Mitford had a glorious opportunity from a corner but he skyed his effort from inside the box following a corner. Craig Goodsir pulled one back with 11 minutes left but Wasps just couldn't get the equaliser they deserved..............[Full Match report]

It will come as no great surprise that tomorrow's match between Wasps and Hassocks has been postponed.

Wasps are buzzing thanks to £100,000 boost

The Football Stadia Improvement Fund (FSIF), supporters of the Football Foundation, and the largest funder of non-league football in the country, today announced a grant of £100,000 to East Grinstead Town FC.

The award will allow the club to provide modern facilities for its players and supporters, including two new team changing rooms, separate male and female officials changing rooms, a first aid room, a kitchen and hospitality area, externally accessed spectator toilets, increased covered seating, a turnstile block, with spectator exit and emergency vehicle access from a resurfaced car park.

Funded with £6m each year from the Premier League, the FSIF is the country’s largest provider of grants towards projects that help improve the comfort and safety of lower league football grounds in both the professional and amateur game. These improvements range from new football stands and turnstiles to floodlighting and improved provision for disabled supporters.

East Grinstead Town FC was also awarded a Budweiser Club Futures grant of £50,000. Budweiser Club Futures is a partnership between The FA and the Football Foundation that helps clubs to help themselves, with the grant recipients using their funding to improve their general facilities and make their club more financially sustainable.

Richard Tramontin, East Grinstead Town Chairman, said: “This is absolutely fantastic news and it will mean so much to the club. I would like to say a very big thank you to the FSIF as well as the other funding contributors Budweiser, Mid Sussex District Council, SITA Trust, Gatwick Airport Community Trust and those individuals who have made personal donations.

“The FSIF grant will allow us to proceed with our £296,000 ground improvement project which I have spent all year trying to raise finance for and this award makes all the work worthwhile.

“As well as enabling the club to meet the ground grading criteria necessary to progress up the football pyramid, the realisation of our project will enable us to provide a great legacy for future generation of footballers in East Grinstead and the surrounding area. We are truly grateful to the FSIF for helping us make this happen.”


Peter McCormick, FSIF Chairman, said: “I am delighted to be able to award to East Grinstead Town FC this grant to enable them to improve their facilities.

“FSIF staff work hard to make sure that the funding that is generously provided by the Premier League each year goes as far as possible and benefits as many clubs and supporters as it possibly can.”

Sam Schaaf scored the only goal in the first half. Matt Geard scored two second-half penalties with Marc Pelling's headed goal coming in between the spot kicks..............[Full Match report]]

Hanworth Villa 3, East Grinstead Town 1

Wasps can count themselves unfortunate to not come away from their Combined Counties League opponents with at least a draw in this FA Vase 2nd round tie. They trailed one nil at the end of the first half but when substitute Michael Belli equalised in the 65th minute it looked likely that Grinstead would go on and win but when a corner was only partially cleared the home side re-took the lead and then an unfortunate slip led to them going further ahead. The game was played in good spirit and we wish Hanworth Villa success in the rest of the competition..............[Full Match report]

East Grinstead Town FC To Receive £50,000 Boost

Budweiser football grant programme will help EGTFC fulfill its ambitions

Budweiser today announced East Grinstead Town FC as one of eight recipients of a £50,000 grant as part of its Club Futures programme.

Budweiser Club Futures, which is in its second season, will help non-league side East Grinstead Town, who play in Sussex County League Division One, renovate their main stand and changing rooms.

The ambition of Budweiser Club Futures is to help clubs to help themselves, with the grant recipients using their funding to improve their general facilities and make their club more financially sustainable. These funds support the clubs to be at the heart of their communities, helping to ensure the future of the beautiful game at the grassroots level across the UK.

Budweiser Club Futures has also been supported by the Football Foundation, who helped decide the grant recipients, and The FA Facilities and Investment team, who provided advice and guidance to the non-league clubs applying. The programme has now invested a total of £1million directly into 16 non-league football clubs in the UK over the last two seasons.

East Grinstead Town is now in with a chance of winning an additional £100,000 Super Grant which will top up their funding to a total of £150,000 following a vote by football fans on Facebook. The voting opens in January 2014 on the Budweiser UK and FA Cup Facebook pages.

Richard Tramontin, Chairman of East Grinstead Town, said: "This is absolutely fantastic news for East Grinstead Town Football Club. The grant will enable us to provide modern, clean facilities for our players and supporters. It is also a great legacy for a future generation of footballers in East Grinstead and the surrounding area. Great credit must go to Budweiser who are engaging so strongly with non-league football in this country. This is going to mean a great deal to football in East Grinstead."

Budweiser Club Futures ambassador, Alan Pardew, said: “Having plied my trade in non-league football, I am under no illusions as to the graft and dedication required to sustain a local club.

“As Budweiser Club Futures ambassador for a second season, I have seen first-hand the difference the funding has made to last year’s recipients. Once again, we received some brilliant and inspiring applications. This is great to see as it reinforces the passion that these clubs have to grow and achieve their ambitions.”

“East Grinstead Town’s application was outstanding, and to think they could add a further super grant of £100,000 means that Richard and his staff have an exciting few months ahead.”


Budweiser Senior Brand Manager, Christian Flouch, said: “Non-league clubs are the backbone of the beautiful game in this country, and often of their local communities too. Whether the money goes towards resurrecting clubs on the brink of extinction or fulfilling their dreams of climbing the football pyramid, watching them flourish as a result of Budweiser Club Futures is fantastic. Congratulations to East Grinstead Town and we look forward to seeing the results of the grant award.”

The 2013/14 grant recipients, all in steps 5-7 of the English football pyramid, are:
Bedfont Sports FC – London
East Grinstead Town FC – South East
Parley Sports Club – South West
Bromsgrove Sporting FC – West Midlands
Basford United – East Midlands
Handsworth Junior Sporting Club – North East

Peter Bentley

It is with great sadness that we announce that Peter Bentley, President of the Sussex County Football League and Chairman of the Sussex County FA passed away peacefully in the early hours of this morning.

I'm sure everyone connected with the club and with football in general will join us in sending out thoughts and best wishes to Margaret and all of his family at this sad time.

As a mark of respect and in honour of Peter, black arm bands will be worn by players and there will be a minute of silence before Saturday's match against Lancing.

Peter is pictured here two months ago at the Sussex County FA HQ in Lancing when he was presented with Honorary Membership of the FA.

EGTFC shows its heart with Life Saving Defibrillator

East Grinstead Town FC and its community has been equipped with a life-saving new defibrillator, with the help of The Football Association (FA) and British Heart Foundation (BHF).

In a unique partnership between the BHF and The FA, more than 900 defibrillators have been made available to clubs at Steps 1 to 6 of the National League System and clubs in the Women’s Super League to help save the lives of cardiac arrest casualties.

EGTFC is the latest club to install a defibrillator, giving players, staff and fans access to the equipment needed to save lives in their community. The club was also given information about Hands-only CPR, which was made famous for the BHF by football legend Vinnie Jones.

Two-thirds of the cost of the defibrillator was provided to the club by The FA and BHF.

Chairman Richard Tramontin said: “This vital piece of equipment could prove to be the difference between life and death and it’s a welcome addition to this club and its community.

“The FA and BHF have made it possible for EGTFC to be part of the drive to improve the UK’s poor cardiac arrest survival rates. Along with CPR, a defibrillator is a vital link in the chain of survival and we’re lucky that we now have the skills and equipment at the club to save a life. It is also a fitting tribute to Adam Dabell that we now have a defribillator and have received the necessary training, particularly as we have just hosted the 10th annual memorial match following his tragic death.”


National awareness around sudden cardiac arrests was heightened when former England Under-21 star Fabrice Muamba suffered a cardiac arrest in the Tottenham Hotspur versus Bolton Wanderers FA Cup tie on March 17 last year. Muamba’s story is even more remarkable as only around 1 in 5 people normally survive a witnessed, out-of-hospital cardiac arrest in the UK.

A defibrillator, also known as an Automated External Defibrillator or AED, gives the heart a controlled electrical shock during cardiac arrest.

For every minute that passes without CPR of defibrillation, chances of survival decrease by about 10 per cent. Research shows giving CPR and a controlled shock within five minutes of collapse provides the best possible chance of survival if CPR has been carried out as well.

The British Heart Foundation has already helped place 11,000 defibrillators in the community since 1996. Since the charity launched Hands-only CPR last year, more than 30 lives have been saved by the technique.

Clubs can find information about the application process by visiting www.bhf.org.uk/football.

Adam Dabell Memorial Match

Last Thursday evening, on what had threatened to be a wet night but turned out be a mainly dry, if particularly cold evening, there was a very large crowd of extremely good natured, mainly young people for the 10th Annual 6th Form Adam Dabell Memorial Match. Match Photos courtesy of Ross King

The Sackville v Imberhorne 'Old Boys' match kicked off the evening and, with sheer enthusiasm, kept everyone entertained before the main event.

As always, the Imberhorne v Sackville 6th Formers produced 90 minutes of excellent football, with the stands and indeed the whole ground, alive to some very robust support for both sides.

The teams came out at the start of the match looking evenly matched and with great skill kept pushing forward but, when the goals started to come, it was Imberhorne alone, out for blood after the last 2 years’ defeats, who kept scoring.

The final score when the whistle went was 5 - 0. Miles Pitt scored 1 and Steve Palmer scored an incredible 4!

The Town Deputy Mayor, Nick Hodges, attended for most of the match, had photos taken with both teams and presented the Cup, Trophy and medals at the end.

As we’ve heard in previous years, Nick’s comment was that he had been most impressed with the amount of Twitter and Blogs in advance of the event, by the young people of the Town, clearly showing that this was now a well known Community Event. Speaking to both teams he said that they had, once again, shown admirable sporting skill and with the good humoured support from the large crowd of young people attending, clearly demonstrated to all that the majority of young people are a great credit to their local community.

In thanking, once again, Richard Tramontin in particular, of EGTFC , for their kind support of this annual memorial event, in memory of Adam his son , and also Steve Hill the West Sussex Sports Coordinator, whose idea the Match originally was, John Dabell declared the event another huge success and said, “Let’s meet here next year and do it again!”

Steve and John also announced the creation of, and presented the design for, a Memorial Match Tie with an extremely attractive design featuring both 6th form emblems and timeless appropriateness.

Advance orders for the tie, which costs £10 each, are being taken and for each tie sold, a minimum donation of £2 will be made to the appropriate charity, CRY – Cardiac Risk in the Young. www.c-r-y.org.uk/

Voluntary contributions on the night of the match, plus donations later handed and sent in, raised £500 for CRY.

Wasps Third XI enjoyed another win, beating Wivelsfield Green 6 - 2 with three goals from Eddie Tester, two from Zac Curtis and 1 from Sam Fidles. Tester scored the perfect hat-trick: right foot, left foot and a header. The win keeps Wasps top of the table.

Imberhorne 6th Form 5, Sackville 6th Form 0

A good sized crowd turned out at the GAC Stadium to pay tribute to Adam Dabell in the annual memorial match between Imberhorne and Sackville 6th forms in his honour. EGTFC are proud and honoured to have hosted the tenth annual memorial match to Adam who collapsed and died while playing football.

Adam, a former Sackville pupil, died on 10th March 2004 at the age of 26 while playing a match with friends at Edenbridge leisure centre. He had just scored a goal in the five-a-side competition when he began to feel unwell. He was rushed by ambulance to the Kent and Sussex hospital in Tunbridge Wells, where it was confirmed he had died. A coroner concluded a valve in his heart had failed.

His father John said: "At that time we, his extended family with his many good friends, decided that the best memorial to a young man so full of life, would be a living memorial and it is fantastic that so many people turn out year after year at East Grinstead Town FC to celebrate his life. Being the tenth anniversary, it was absolutely wonderful that his 92 year old grandmother was able to attend the match in Adam's honour for the first time this year."

Money raised from the Memorial Match will go to CRY - Cardiac Risk in the Young - CRY was founded in 1995 to raise awareness of conditions that can lead to Sudden Cardiac Death (SCD); Sudden Death Syndrome (SDS, SADS), in the young - www.c-r-y.org.uk"

Ben Chick out for the season

Ben Chick has been ruled out for the season through injury.

Having waited patiently since aggravating a knee injury during a testimonial match at the end of last season, he has now been told that he has ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament, ruling him out for the rest of the season.

This is a massive blow to both the player and the club. Manager Simon Funnell said: "Knowing Chicky as I do, he just wants to play football and this is so frustrating for him. He is a massive miss for us, but it is more for Ben that I feel sorry for. He just loves playing football.

"I know I speak on behalf of everybody at the club in wishing him a speedy recovery and we will look to try and keep Chicky involved while he's not playing if possible. He has got to go back in a month to see if he needs surgery."

Wasps started tonight's second round John O'Hara cup tie by far the better of the two sides and deservedly took the lead after 6 minutes against in-form Hassocks through a Sam Schaaf header following a corner from George Hiller-Jones. They were playing some neat, controlled football and Rhys White was deperatley unlucky not to double Wasps' lead with a dipping strike which Alex Harris did extremely well to tip onto the bar, but with their first real attack and totally against the run of play, Hassocks equalised after 26 minutes with an absolute screamer from Jamie Hillwood from the edge of the box which flew past keeper Mark Fox. Grinstead continued to press and came close to regaining the lead before the break. After 51 minutes Schaaf was hauled down in the box and Matt Geard blasted his spot kick past Harris for what turned out to be the winner..............[Full Match report]

Pagham were gifted an equaliser on 24 minutes when a clearance from inside the box ricoched off Ryan Cox and into the net.

East Grinstead Town 6, Arsenal Legends 5

A STALWART of East Grinstead Town Football Club has fulfilled a lifelong dream of scoring a goal for Arsenal while playing alongside stars he watched when he was younger.
Bob Smith, who has played and managed at East Grinstead Town since 1988, grew up living right on the doorstep of Highbury Stadium.
And the 50 year old was thanked for his service to the town's football club with a testimonial game between his 2004 RUR Cup winning Wasps side and an Arsenal Legends Team.
Former Gunners Paul Davis, John Mathews and Brian Sparrow were joined by Sam Attwater from Eastenders and fellow actor Giles Alderson.
Bob who manages the Under 18s and still plays at centre back for the Fourth Team, said the veterans showed they haven't lost their touch.
He said: "The Arsenal boys all still play and it shows.
"It was a really good competitive game; really competitive.
"It was a little bit too hot for me, though. Getting around the pitch at my age is hard work."

He added: "It was great. I played most of the game for East Grinstead then switched to play with the Arsenal players. I used to watch them play at Highbury. I was born and bred there and lived just behind the stadium.
"I scored for Arsenal as well. Bottom corner. Always the same."

East Grinstead Town were 4-0 up against Arsenal by the end of the first half, a scoreline you don't see every day. But the ex-professionals came back and narrowly lost 6-5 in the end.
The day included a presentation to Bob from the Sussex FA and an estimated £3,000 to £4,000 was raised for charity with about 400 people watching the action.
The Arsenal players stuck around for a bit of food at the end of the match, but it was the local lads that made a night of it. After leaving the club they ended up in the Dorset Arms for a few more pints and some "silly shots" which Bob admits left him feeling a bit worse for wear.
He said: "I felt terrible on Monday morning. I'm getting too old for that.
"It was a fantastic day. The players and celebrities were all lovely people and we've raised a lot of money for some really worthwhile causes.
"We had been talking about a testimonial for me last year and I'm glad I did it while I can still play and put myself about."

Tonight's friendlies

Simon Funnell's Wasps lost 3 - 1 to Ryman South Peacehaven tonight, conceding two late goals against the run of play and after making a number of substitutions. They fell behind early on from a corner and equalised through a penalty to go in deservedly at half time at least on equal terms. The Ryman team came out in the second half showing a lot more aggression but Wasps were on top for 25 minutes and looked the more likely to score. After his second pre-season match for the club, Tyrone Pink put pen to paper and signed for Wasps.
Bob Smith's Under 18s travelled to AFC Uckfield to face their reserve side and put on a good performance even though they lost 6-4.

Lewes U18s 2, East Grinstead Town U18s 4

Wasps Under 18s travelled to Seaford for their first pre-season friendly against Lewes this morning.


Friendly against Cray regrettably called off

It is with much regret that we have had to cancel today’s First Team friendly against Cray Valley. Last night’s match against Crystal Palace has taken its toll on most of the 17 Wasps players that played and other unexpected injuries and unavailabilities have resulted in the unfortunate cancellation. Our sincere apologies go to everyone at Cray Valley and we are actively seeking an alternative suitable date.


East Grinstead Town 0, Crystal Palace 6

Crystal Palace's youngsters showed their class in an entertaining pre-season friendly at the GAC Stadium on Friday night.
A crowd of around 450 watched Simon Funnell's County League side equip themselves well although entertaining the Premier League new boys’ development side was always going to be a tough test.
The Eagles’ sharpness and quality shone through as the visitors scored six goals without reply, including four in the first 33 minutes of the game.
It took just 70 seconds for Palace to strike as Kwesi Appiah nodded in a right wing cross to give them a great start, although it should have been two moments later when Appiah looked for a square ball when through on goal.
The Eagles did not have to wait long for a second goal though, with Jake Gray latching on to a through ball to round Wasps goalkeeper Mark Fox and slot the ball into an empty net to make it 2-0 after just seven minutes.
Grinstead’s top scorer from last season, Sam Schaaf, had his first sight of goal a couple of minutes later, but he scuffed his shot wide.
Unfortunately for the hosts, that was about as good as it got early onwith trialist Jake Nicholson and Appiah again going close to a third goal, before Brice Iriebi tried an audacious lob from all of 35 yards that drifted wide of Fox’s goal.
A third goal was again not long in coming though, with a lovely move down the right leading to Ali Gordon swinging in a sweet delivery for Appiah to volley home across Fox for his second of the game.
In truth, he should have had a hat-trick moments later, but Fox was out quick from his line to deny the former Margate striker.
However, Palace were not to be denied as Iriebi played in Ismael H’Maidat down the left wing and the tricky winger cut inside past John Noakes before curling in an exquisite effort past Fox to make it four after just 33 minutes.
Appiah and Gray again went close as the clock counted down towards half time, but neither were able to find the target as the score remained 4-0 at the break.
Wholesale changes were made by the Eagles at half time, with eight new players taking to the pitch, while Grinstead brought on 16-year-old Craig Goodsir at left back.
The changes stunted the flow of the game somewhat as both sides adjusted to the changes, although Appiah should have added a fifth for Palace when he struck the post following good work down the right by Derek Tiehu.
The striker was guilty of missing another good chance when he worked himself space in the box and shot straight at Fox, while Marcel Henry-Francis blazed wide after being played in on goal as the Eagles failed to make the most of their possession.
Another round of substitutions, this time by the hosts, saw Grinstead gain a foothold in the game with some fresh legs, and although they struggled to create clear-cut chances they managed to keep Palace at bay for 30 minutes of the second period.
Then a moment of magic from former Tottenham Hotspur man Nicholson lit up the game as he blasted in a stunning strike from outside the box on 76 minutes, with Fox helpless to prevent his net from bulging as he watched the screamer flash past him.
Tcheeb Oloyede could have notched a consolation for the Wasps at the other end moments later, but he hesitated when through on goal, allowing the Palace defence to get back and make a block to deny the substitute the goal his side’s second half display merited.
And with time running out, Palace added a sixth to round off a convincing display, with Henry-Francis slotting the ball low past Fox after being put through on goal in the final minute of normal time.

Grinstead: Fox, Noakes, Mustafa (Goodsir), Sinclair (Burns), Pelling (Mpalampa), Thomsett (Karma), Wilson, Abbott, Schaaf (Oloyede), Cooney, Geard (Fletcher).
Palace (First half): Fitzsimons, Gordon, Berkely-Agyepong, Sow, Inniss, Chambers, Gray, Appiah, Iriebi, H’Maidat.
(Second half): Gregory, Gordon, Kinda-John, Taylor, Croll, Harriott, Dymond, Henry-Francis, Tiehu, Uduwaga, Appiah (Nicholson).

Wasps hit for six by Eagles

Gary Issott gave each of his 22 man Crystal Palace development squad 45 minutes tonight as they retained the GAC Community Trophy putting six past Simon Funnell's Wasps. [Match report to follow]


The new Sussex County League Division One constitution for 2013/14 season was agreed at the League AGM last night following successful appeals to the FA against moving Crowborough Athletic and Rye United to the Kent League and the rejection of AFC Uckfield's appeal not to be relegated for not meeting FA Ground Grading criteria.

So with Peacehaven and Redhill having been promoted to Ryman South, Newhaven and Littlehampton promoted to Division One, AFC Uckfield relegated to Division Two and Sidley United withdrawing from the league following the sports and social club who own their ground going into administration, Division One will go back to a 20 club league for the coming season. The demise of Sidley has resulted in our near neighbours Lingfield being reprieved from relegation for failing to meet FA Ground Grading criteria.

Sponsors back Wasps

The club are delighted to announce that Rydon and GAC are to continue their sponsorship of the club.

The Rydon Group, who are based in Forest Row, will have their name on our first-team shirts for the 23rd successive season when the new Sussex County League season kicks off on 10th August.

In addition, GAC have agreed to continue their sponsorship of the GAC Stadium at East Court for the fifth successive year.

Chairman Richard Tramontin said: “We are absolutely delighted that two partners who have been such fantastic supporters of the club for many years are continuing to support the club next season. Without their backing the club would not be able to survive.”

In addition, Barratt Homes will be sponsoring the under-18s in the Southern Youth League and FA Youth Cup next season. They also sponsored our successful Footie Fun Day youth football festival last month.

Lynnette St-Quintin, Sales Director at Barratt Southern Counties, commented: “We try to support local community activities wherever possible and are thrilled to be sponsoring East Grinstead Town Football Club for the new season. Our Bluebell Gate development is located close to the club, so it’s great to support the wealth of talented local players at the club and we wish them a successful season.”

Richard Tramontin added: “As well as retaining our two main existing sponsors we are delighted to welcome Barratt Homes and to also confirm that Wickes will again be sponsoring the town’s annual fireworks display which this year takes place on 2nd November. We are also extremely grateful that Mid Sussex Timber and Southern Sheeting have also confirmed their continued support.”

The Eagles are coming to the GAC Stadium

Recently promoted Crystal Palace will be coming to the GAC Stadium for a prestigious pre-season friendly.

Simon Funnell's Wasps will take on a Palace XI at East Court on Friday, July 12, kick off 7.30pm.

The teams will be meeting for the GAC Community Trophy, which has been contested by the two clubs since 2010 and was donated by Penny Farthing Jewellers of East Grinstead.

It will be one of Palace's first friendlies since they won promotion to the Premier League and is sure to attract a good crowd.

Grinstead chairman Richard Tramontin said: "Ian Holloway's squad will have only just returned for pre-season so there may not be any first-team players involved but Palace have always had a very strong Academy set-up and one of their graduates Wilfred Zaha was, of course, the inspiration behind their promotion run.

"So we will be seeing Palace's stars of the future and I'm sure the game will be well supported. There are a lot of Palace fans in the area who will look forward to the game."


The Sussex County League season will start on Saturday 10th August and pre-season training starts on Tuesday 25th June at East Court (7pm). Any new players who are interested in joining the club are more than welcome to come along.
