Welcome back, guys!
Pre-season is coming to a close and we now take on Tilbury FC in what will be our final game before the season begins. As many of you will know, we will be ground-sharing with Tilbury this season, making this one particularly special!
It’s been a gruelling but highly positive pre-season for the lads, who have won three of the five games to date, including an emphatic 4-1 win over Step 2 side Concord Rangers FC.
Last time out we beat a stubborn Peterborough Northern Star side 1-0 thanks to a goal from George Smith, who really has settled into Hashtag life with ease. We cannot wait to see how many goals the deadly striker is going to get for us this season!
70’ – GOAL! @georgesmith10_ with the goal!

Now, onto Tilbury FC.
Our opponents play their football in the Isthmian League North Division, one step above us in the pyramid of English football. We will again get another exciting view of how competitive we are against those in higher divisions.
Unfortunately, we will still be without Jack Harrison while he recovers from a knock. Charlie Morley is also unavailable after suffering a hamstring injury in last weekend’s Challenger Games in America.

Tuesday night’s game is the final chance for the boys to gain some fitness and momentum heading into the season opener against Southend Manor in just over a week. The new signings have been thoroughly impressive thus far. Let’s see if they can continue to push for a place for the starting lineup!
If you want to get down and support the boys, it will be a 7 45pm kick-off at Chadfields, St Chads Road, Tilbury, Essex, RM18 8NL.
Ticket prices are TBC , so keep an eye on our Twitter feed to find out that information very soon!
We’ve loved the support so far during pre-season and hope to see as many of you come down as possible.
As always, don’t forget to Hashtag it!
