Pre-Season Friendlies Finalised

Hythe Town FC have finalised their Pre-Season Friendly line-up for the 2012/13 season. Our season begins with the visit of Blue Square South side Eastbourne Borough, a fantastic way to kick-off the season with the pitch looking great and a high standard of opposition. Our first midweek fixture of the season will see Hastings United of the Ryman Premier make the journey down the coast to visit Reachfields.


On the following Tuesday we make the very short journey to a club we continue to have very close connections with, Ashford United of the Kent Invicta League. Fifteen ex-Hythe men (or current squad members on loan) made appearances for the 'Nuts & Bolts' last season, including Sam Conlon and Dan Scorer of our Kent League winning squad, and signing for the new season at Homelands, Gary Mickelborough. Of course we have several ex-Ashford men in our current squad, and both clubs have shared supporters when off the field problems have struck over the years so it should be an excellent evening. We are very thankful to Lydd Town of the Kent Invicta League who have agreed to an extra friendly fixture at Reachfields on Thursday 2nd August, kick-off 7.45pm. Admission will be free, with a donations bucket passed around during the game.


We have happily agreed to be part of the unveiling of Kent Invicta League side Sutton Athletic's new home on Saturday 4th August, before a midweek visit from Bromley Green of the Kent County League Premier Division. We complete our pre-season programme with the visit of Aveley of the Ryman North. Attendance Prices for pre-season will be £5 for Adults, £3 for Concessions (OAP's & 15-18 year olds), and £1 for Under 15's. With the exception of the Bromley Green game which will be £4 for Adults, £2 for Concessions and £1 for Under 15's.
