Ashford Utd Friendly Moved To Reachfields
Due to delays with the installation of their new 3G playing surface, our pre-season friendly with Ashford United has now been moved to Reachfields.
The game takes place on Saturday 1st August, with a 3pm kick-off. The next game at Reachfields is when a Maidstone United XI visit Reachfields on Wednesday 29th July, kick-off 7.45pm.
Weakened Cannons Overcome FC Romania
With Skipper James Morrish, Jordan Wells, John Walker and new signings Stephen Butcher and Rene Rivera unavailable for selection, an experimental Cannons side enjoyed a decent runout against a capable looking FC Romania side. The visitors took the lead on the hour mark, before an equaliser from trialist Johan Caney and a winner from Shaun Welford continued Tim Dixon's side's unbeaten pre-season.
Hythe Town Squad: Dan Eason, Phil Stevenson, Josh Burchell, Scott Punton, Ollie Lee, Laurence Harvey, Dan Stubbs, Sam Fisher, Shaun Welford, Bradley Jordan, Joe Fisher, Roddy Hayward, Sam Conlon,

Calling All Cannons Supporters!
With the new Ryman League season fast approaching there are still many things that need doing at Reachfields.
We have therefore decided to arrange a couple of work party dates in the next couple of weeks and would ask if anyone can spare a few hours to come along and help.
There are a number of small tasks that need doing, cutting back vegetation, washing seats, painting, grass strimming etc. A selection of cakes will be provided to boost morale!
The work party dates are Sunday 26th July in the morning from 9am and Tuesday 28th July in the evening from 6pm. If you are able to come armed with paintbrushes or any other useful equipment that would be a great help.
If you are not able to attend on any of these days but would still like to help out please ring Barry Vincer on 07889 792982 to arrange a suitable time to pop along.
Goals Galore At Reachfields!
It was an eventful night at Reachfields as a topsy-turvy pre-season friendly with Kent Invicta League champions, Hollands & Blair, ended in a 3-3 draw. Goals from Shaun Welford and Sam Conlon within the first five minutes appeared to be setting up a routine win for the Cannons. But either side of half-time the visitors settled down and it wasn't a surprise when Bryan Greenfield pulled one back from the penalty spot on the hour.
With the usual large amount of substitutions entering the fray the game appeared to be drifting as a contest, before Luke Fewsdale took advantage of some poor defending to give his side the lead with a sudden sixty-second brace! This appeared to jolt Tim Dixon's men back into gear and it was the unlikely John Walker that sent a lovely flying volley into the top corner in the 90th minute to save his sise's blushes.
Hythe Town Squad: Roddy Hayward, Stephen Butcher, John Walker, Sam Fisher, Phil Stevenson, Ollie Lee, Dan Stubbs, James Morrish, Shaun Welford, Bradley Jordan, Sam Conlon, Dan Eason, Laurence Harvey, Scott Punton, Henry Fulcher, Josh Burchell
Cannons Looking In Decent Shape
Hythe Town's 1st Team squad made it two pre-season wins out of two, as they impressed during a routine 3-1 away win over Deal Town, Sam Conlon and James Morrish (2) the goalscorers.
The game at Deal followed a decent midweek outing at Kennington, who were 2-1 winners over a Hythe Town XI side, made up largely of trialists and Under 21 players.
Hythe Town squad at Deal: Roddy Hayward, Stephen Butcher, Ollie Lee, Laurence Harvey, Dan Stubbs, Scott Punton, Bradley Jordan, James Morrish, Sam Conlon, Dan Eason, Shaun Welford, Sam Fisher, John Walker, Harry Carr.

Cannons In The Community - The Next Stage
Hythe Town FC are delighted to formally announce details of their new Under 21 development squad, to be in place for the 2015/16 season.
This exciting next stage of the ‘Cannons In The Community’ project was first outlined by 1st Team Manager, Tim Dixon and his Assistant, Darren Beale when they interviewed for their positions at the club just over a year ago.
Everybody involved at Reachfields and the Hythe Stars & Stripes youth set-up have identified the need for the two clubs to work even more closely on the jointly-run Under 18s side, along with the need for the reintroduction of a set-up that supports the development of Under 21s football and the progression from youth to senior football in Hythe - Read More

Another Quality Addition!
Hythe Town FC are delighted to announce their second quality addition of the summer, in the shape of the returning Dan Stubbs. The twenty-five year old midfielder previously played for the club in a spell spanning the final fifteen games of the season before last.
Those who remember those games may or may not need reminding of the quality that Dan can offer, he set-up seven goals and scored two of his own during the relatively short time he spent as a Cannon.
Talking to the website late last night, 1st Team Manager, Tim Dixon, was delighted to have secured the second of his summer targets, he said - "Not only is Stubbsy a very good footballer - Read More
Butcher Joins From Rams
Hythe Town FC are delighted to announce the signing of full-back, Stephen Butcher, from Ramsgate, a versatile youngster who can play anywhere across the back four or in midfield.
Stephen was previously part of the Gillingham youth set-up and made two appearances for the Gills 1st Team during the 2013/14 season, against Colchester United in League One as well as in the FA Cup first round - Read More
Thommo & Yianni Move On
1st Team Manager, Tim Dixon, has confirmed that both Craig Thompson and Michael Yianni have decided to drop down a division next season and sign for SCEFL title chasers, Ashford United.
Thommo's move brings a close to his second, far shorter, spell with the Cannons after returning to the club after returning from some time at Whitstable Town the season before last.
With Michael ending his fifth stint at Reachfields and Thommo just ending arguably his best Ryman South campaign since our promotion, it is always possible we haven't seen the last of two players who are also very good friends off the pitch.

Calling All Hythe Town FC Supporters!
We are currently looking at some new ideas to allow our supporters to help their football club. Lets be honest, most of the time if a non-league football club requests help from its followers, it is normally going to be in the form of your time or your money.
Well, what if you could help support 'The Cannons' without any further outlay than your usual admission to a game, programme or pint?
What if, after already spending Saturday away from the non-football loving members of your family, we only asked for just a few more minutes of your much valued time?
We are asking all of our 'online' support to just follow three easy steps, that take minutes, cost nothing, yet will raise some much needed funds for YOUR football club.
