End Of Season Presentation Evening

On Saturday night Hythe Town FC held their annual End of Season Presentation Evening, this year at the Hythe Imperial Hotel. It marked the end of a real rollercoaster of a season, the club going through a transitional year both on and off the pitch. Ultimately the lads did a brilliant job during the second half of the campaign to end the season on a real high. We ended April as the form side of the division, ending up only six points outside the play-off places, and maintaining our record of finishing eighth or higher since our promotion to the Ryman South - Read More

Farewell Tas, Welcome Dan

It is farewell to Taser Hassan, the popular winger has agreed to a move to fellow Ryman South side, Hastings United, following an approach from new Hastings manager, former Hythe Town player, Terry White.

Player Of The Month - Ryan Cooper

It was an even busier first month than usual, given the earlier start to the season due to the additional teams in the division.

 

Scott has commented that it has been a somewhat up and down start to the season, with our best performances coming away from home.

 

The unanimous 'Man of the Match' last Saturday at Merstham has also gained the nod for the month as a whole, once everyone put their heads together.

 

Ryan Cooper, a signing over the summer, has impressed everyone in the way he has slotted straight in at right-back and in the consistency he has shown throughout the month.

 

Congratulation to our first 'Player of the Month' for the 2013/14 season, Ryan Cooper!
