Club News.....

The club held it's final Supporters get-together in the clubhouse on Wednesday 9th May and a large number of fans attended. Apart from hearing updates from the Manager, the Chairman and the Secretary, there was an open forum where all were encouraged to have their say. This led to a number of ideas being put forward, all of which will be discussed at the next Board meeting in early June. 

 

However, the number one topic was the formation of a Hythe Town Football Club Patrons group, the aim of which will be to help us compete against other Kent non-league clubs, many with higher average attendances who already have similar funding groups in place. It was suggested that membership of such a group could be set at variable levels with the highest level being suitable perhaps for commercial sponsors who would receive a good level of publicity locally should they so wish. 

 

Full details will follow in due course but in the meantime anyone interested in taking part in this group at any level is asked to register that interest by e-mailing the Club Secretary at   martinandsuegiles@gmail.com  or writing to the postal address 21 Wych Elm Way Hythe Kent CT21 6QE

 

 

Campbell commits for the new season....

Further good news for the club as Kieron Campbell has agreed a new deal with the club and will be under contract for the new season.

 

 

Kieron originally joined the club during the 2016-2017 season and has played 67 games scoring eight goals. 


News update.....

The club can announce that Ryan Johnson has decided to move on and will not be with us next season. Last season’s club captain played 112 games scoring five goals. Ryan will be sorely missed and we thank him for his time at the club. Good luck Ryan for the future. 

 

Also leaving is centre back, Callum Emptage who was only able to play two games due to a serious injury and has re-joined East Grinstead Town. Again we wish him well for the future.

 

 

A further player has confirmed he is remaining with us and that is Connor Sanders who joined us from Canterbury City. He is having a minor ankle operation during the summer and will return to the team in September.
