On Saturday the Fish are on the road, heading for a day on the coast away at Whitstable Town. Gary is hoping to welcome some new faces to the side as the whole team look to put the Deal Town result behind them and focus on getting the points on the board to start moving up the table.
Scott Porter’s Whitstable Town side currently sit midtable in 8th, seeming to still be adjusting to life in the SCEFL Premier following their relegation from the Ryman South last season. In their last 5 league games The Oystermen have picked up 3 wins and 2 defeats, the highlight being last weekend’s 1-5 win away at Erith Town. Whitstable have also progressed in both the Challenge Cup and the Kent Senior Trophy.
Top scorer this season for Whitstable is frontman Kane Rowland, who has netted 12 times in 13 games in all competitions. Darren Marsden has 5 to his name from midfield, with Ollie Lee chipping in with 4 goals too.
For supporters heading to the game the all important address is The Belmont Ground, Belmont Road, Whitstable, Kent CT5 1QP. The public transport connections are challenging, with the best options from London being either to get to Canterbury West then a bus to Whitstable, or trains from Victoria to Rainham, then Faversham, then Whitstable. Leave plenty of time for travel, and plan ahead!
