Dave "gutted" by Walton & Hersham result

"We dominated the game for about 85 minutes today" said Dave Anderson "but we just couldn't put the ball away. So I'm not relieved by the last minute equaliser, I am gutted that we didn't win a game we ran from beginning to end.

"During the first half Steve Wales was making inroads down the right so we gave things a bit longer. We changed it round in the second half and created lots of chances. But it just wouldn't go in."

Yesterday and tomorrow - Dave's thoughts and the squad

The morning after the game, Dave Anderson was still feeling frustrated by the goal we conceded.

"We were nowhere near as free-flowing as we were on Tuesday but we still tried to pass it and got a couple of very good chances in the first half. Steve Wales made a great run but couldn't quite finish it off, Michael Haswell was free in the area and hit the side netting when the right decision was probably to cross it, Byron Bubb hit the ball across the face of the goal when Roscoe was in space, and Scott Fitzgerald had a header with "goal" written all over it but there was a great goal-line clearance from the defender.

"In the second half we began to run out of ideas a bit and it got to the stage where we seemed to fall a bit flat. When you play a passing game you need to have a high tempo and when we lost that it made us easy to mark, especially when the opposition play the same system, as Boreham Wood did. We weren't great but let's get it into perspective, we weren't awful either. We aren't a million miles away from being a good team that wins games.

"So, when we did take the lead it was very frustrating to concede the way we did. Lee Kersey had a very good game yesterday but he went for the header at the set piece and lost his man ? and that was the man who scored.

"On the plus side, I don't think we picked up any serious injuries. Steve "Terry Butcher" Butler has a bit of tightness in the groin but I think he will be OK. And I was pleased with Scott Fitzgerald's contribution. He had a great header cleared off the line, he won the penalty, he made a few superb 50 yard passes and his cute pass inside the full back set Mickey Haswell free in their area. I thought he fitted in well, especially for a first game."

If you would like to hear Dave?s thoughts immediately after the game, you can hear an interview with Chris Philips here.

Given the good news on the injury front, Dave has announced an unchanged squad for tomorrow's game at Walton & Hersham. "We know all about the place and the team. I know they've not had a good start but that will make them all the more determined. It will be a difficult game and we need to be up for it. If we are, I think we will be fine. And one thing you can be certain is that I will be making the players well aware of that."

The squad is:

Andy Little; Paul Smith; Steve Wales; Michael Haswell; Antony Howard; Wayne Finnie; Steve Butler; Lee Kersey; Mark Rooney; Simon Sobihy; Byron Bubb; Luke Garrard; Wes Daly; Paul Barnes; Darren Grieves; Richard Butler; Roscoe Dsane; Steve Goddard, Scott Fitzgerald.

Meetings Secretary wanted

AFC Wimbledon?s Management Committee requires a Meetings Secretary.

The Management Committee is the group which manages the day-to-day running of the operational activities of AFC Wimbledon and The Dons Trust

The group meets weekly and has operated until now on a fairly informal basis. The group now wants to formalise proceedings to an extent and requires some administrative support in doing so.

A Meetings Secretary will liaise with the chairman to produce an agenda, ensure that papers are circulated in good time, attend and take minutes at the meeting and distribute these promptly afterwards.

Meetings usually take place on Thursday evenings, from 7.30 until 10.00. We estimate that pre- and post-meeting work would take up a further 4-5 hours per week.

We believe this role would be suitable for a volunteer. If we are unable to recruit a suitable volunteer we will consider paying a small retainer.

Suitable candidates will:

? have excellent minute-taking skills
? have experience of using Microsoft Office software packages
? show discretion and the ability to maintain confidentiality

If you would like to help out, and you believe you have what it takes for this important position, please write to:

Kris Stewart
Chairman
AFC Wimbledon
The Fans? Stadium ? Kingsmeadow
Jack Goodchild Way
422a Kingston Road
Kinsgton upon Thames

or email kris.stewart@afcwimbledon.co.uk giving details of your qualifications and suitability for this post.

The closing date for applications is Friday 8 September.

Squad for Boreham Wood

Dave Anderson has announced the following squad for the home game against Boreham Wood tomorrow, Saturday 26 August:

Andy Little; Paul Smith; Steve Wales; Michael Haswell; Antony Howard; Wayne Finnie; Steve Butler; Lee Kersey; Mark Rooney; Simon Sobihy; Byron Bubb; Luke Garrard; Wes Daly; Paul Barnes; Darren Grieves; Richard Butler; Roscoe D'Sane; Steve Goddard, Scott Fitzgerald.

As previously announced, Scott Fitzgerald joins the squad and Paul Smith takes over from Josh Lennie as he takes his turn in the rotation approach that is designed to make sure that the goalkeeper on the bench has had recent competitive action.

Dave Anderson said "I think that this will be an entertaining game. Boreham Wood will try to pass the ball and play football and so will we.

"Our squad is in good heart and is feeling confident, as anyone at training last night would have seen. We will be focusing on moving the ball like on Tuesday but first we have to earn the right to do that. So, we will have to work hard, no doubt about it. But we are ready and looking forward to it."

Scott joins the Dons

Dave Anderson announced this afternoon that he has signed striker Scott Fitzgerald on a one month loan from Brentford.

"We have several centre forwards at the club but, of the main four, Roscoe has had a lot of football after a long break, Richard has played most of two hard games after a long time out from injury, Paul Barnes is on the verge of returning from injury but hasn't yet played a competitive game this season, and Darren Grieves has tightness in his groin. So, all in all, with a very busy month coming up I felt we needed to bolster the attack while they work their way back to full fitness. We won't take chances with any of our strikers and then find ourselves losing them for a longer period.

"I'd been aware of Scott's situation for a week or so and decided to move after he trained with us last night. He was looking sharp because he has been in full time training even if he hasn't been playing, so he will come straight into the squad for tomorrow. He settled in quickly and it helped that he knows Chris Gell very well as they were together at Northwood before Scott went professional. The loan is for a month at first and we'll just see how things go."

Scott joined Watford from Northwood and in 29 league games, plus 26 substitute appearances, he scored 11 goals. Fans may remember that he scored against us in the Milly Dowler game 3 years ago. He moved from Watford to Brentford and was loaned to Oxford and Walsall last season.

Dave's thoughts following the Ramsgate game

Dave was looking at the positive things to take from last night and he felt there were plenty. "I have to say that last night was as good as we've passed the ball since I've been at the club. Especially in the first half. And I promise that we will try to play that way - it's what we want to do.

"If we'd scored it would have been close to a perfect night. But we didn't; they came to get a point and they succeeded. But, even then, I was pleased because we showed patience and created 3 or 4 chances that we could have scored from against a team that will be very hard to beat. So, on Saturday we need the same and just to add a goal. Simple, really!

"It might sound crazy but I don't generally enjoy games because I stay focused on what we are doing and because there is always a bit of anxiety, but I said to JT that I really enjoyed the game. I got the feeling that the crowd enjoyed it as much as we did. To be honest, I'd rather play badly and win but we are aiming to win and to play well while we are doing it."

Asked about the presence of Dons favourite Jermaine Darlington at the game, Dave said "I spoke to Jermaine in the summer and spoke again last week. He is injured and we want to help him recover. When he is fit, we'll speak again."

Dave says more about Jermaine Darlington in his column in Saturday's programme.

Squad for Ramsgate

Dave Anderson has announced the following unchanged squad for the first home game of the season against Ramsgate tomorrow night, Tuesday 22 August:

Andy Little; Josh Lennie; Steve Wales; Michael Haswell; Antony Howard; Wayne Finnie; Steve Butler; Lee Kersey; Mark Rooney; Simon Sobihy; Byron Bubb; Luke Garrard; Wes Daly; Paul Barnes; Darren Grieves; Richard Butler; Roscoe D'Sane; Steve Goddard.

"Josh was meant to be in the squad on Saturday but his car blew a head gasket somewhere on the M25 and he couldn't make it, so we called Paul Smith in at the last minute. Paul will play for the reserves tonight, but over the season you will see them alternating these roles so that, if the need arises, each player is no more than a week away from having played."

Regarding Ramsgate, Dave said "we are aware of them from last season when we met them in two hard games in the FA Trophy. The nucleus of their squad is the same as last year. They are big, strong and organised so it will be a tough test. Saturday's result shows that as they beat Heybridge 2-0 and, by all accounts, it could have been more. So, no question, they are in the division on merit.

"However, Saturday was a good start for us and we want to keep picking up points, especially at home. So we are looking forward to it."

Dave's thoughts on the Carshalton game

Not surprisingly Dave Anderson was pleased with yesterday?s result but he maintained his consistent theme of the last few weeks. ?The time to assess our progress will be after 6 ? 10 games. But it is good to get a winning start. Ask any manager and they will tell you that they are a bit anxious about the first game, no matter how pre-season has gone.

?We were solid for a lot of the game and there were periods when we passed it quite well. There were also spells where they looked better, especially when we looked a bit loose at set pieces. But we spoke about them at half time and, after that, I thought we defended them much better.

?Once we scored I felt we took control and it stayed that way until it went 2 ? 1. We were looking comfortable until then but they started to get our back three into our own box and, when a man gets free like Dundas did, it is that much easier to score from closer in.

?When they scored, I turned to JT and said that this would be a good test of the team?s spirit and discipline. And although Carshalton threw everything at us, I wasn?t really worried at any time until the goal mouth scramble at the very end. Andy Little told me that he was fouled as he went for the ball and it would have been hard to take if they?d scored from that. But the defence threw themselves at the ball and kept it out. I know from talking to Andy after the game how much he values defenders who do that.

?I won?t be certain until Monday but I don?t think anyone came away with a serious injury. Wes got a knock on the head which gave him a bit of a migraine but I don?t expect it to last. Richard has missed a lot of pre-season, so we took him off before the end to give him a rest. With Darren Grieves being doubtful before the game, it was good that we didn?t need to bring him on until the last few minutes; the extra rest will have done him good. And although Paul Barnes wasn?t ready to play today, he will be that much nearer for the Ramsgate game on Tuesday.?

Squad for Carshalton game

Dave Anderson has announced the following squad for the season-opener at Carshalton tomorrow.

Andy Little; Josh Lennie; Steve Wales; Michael Haswell; Antony Howard; Wayne Finnie; Steve Butler; Lee Kersey; Mark Rooney; Simon Sobihy; Byron Bubb; Luke Garrard; Wes Daly; Paul Barnes; Darren Grieves; Richard Butler; Roscoe D'Sane; Steve Goddard.

The team will be wearing the blue strip tomorrow.

Steve Goddard (knee injury), Darren Grieves (groin) and Paul Barnes (knee) are all due to take a fitness test before the game. Paul Armstrong is on holiday.

"It will be a stern test against a team that has come down a division and must be looking to return as soon as possible" said Dave. "But what a way to start the campaign, with a local derby and the special atmosphere that comes with those games. I know all the team are looking forward to it but the new players are especially keen to experience the atmosphere, having heard about it from the rest of the squad.

"I've been told that Carshalton are in an area where there are restrictions on the use of water but hopefully the recent rain will help both teams. My memory is that Carshalton have a good pitch so let's hope the drought hasn't affected it too much."

"Finally, I've said it before and I'll say it again - I can't wait!"

Dave ended with a bit of good news re Steve Watson. "Steve trained last night and came through a rigorous session well. He could even be in our reserves on Tuesday night."

AFC Wimbledon is looking for a Finance Director (Designate)

AFC Wimbledon is a football club re-formed in May 2002 after Wimbledon FC was given permission to move to Milton Keynes. The first team currently plays in the Ryman League Premier Division, having been promoted twice since inception. The club is ultimately controlled by The Dons Trust, an Industrial & Provident Society with over 1,900 members.

Our finance director Erik Samuelson is looking to take on new challenges and as such, AFC Wimbledon is seeking to recruit a qualified accountant to oversee the organisation?s finances. This covers the accounting for three companies ? AFC Wimbledon Ltd (?the football club?), AFCW Stadium Ltd and AFCW PLC.

This is a voluntary role, reporting to the Chief Executive of AFCW PLC, Kris Stewart. The role is diverse and can be demanding and the successful candidate?s first task will be to remodel the current finance function to provide him- or herself with greater support.

We expect the role to necessitate at least one full day per week, spread over an afternoon in the office and an evening meeting. Candidates should also expect to be on duty at a number of matches to ensure financial policies and standards are followed. The successful candidate will have experience in all areas of financial management and will take responsibility for the finance function at AFC Wimbledon.

As always we would hope to recruit from among the Wimbledon supporter base, although applications from other like-minded individuals will be welcomed.

As well as the opportunity to play a senior role in the next stage of AFC Wimbledon?s development as we seek to fulfil our aim of returning to the Football League, benefits include: a covered seat in the main stand and access to the President?s Lounge for the successful candidate and a guest on home matchdays; a parking space on home matchdays; boardroom hospitality at away matches.

After a successful trial period we envisage that the successful candidate will become a member of the AFC Wimbledon Ltd board.

Please apply in writing to:

Kris Stewart
Chief Executive
AFC Wimbledon
The Fans? Stadium ? Kingsmeadow
Jack Goodchild Way
422a Kingston Road
Kingston upon Thames
Surrey
KT1 3PB

The closing date for applications is Thursday 31 August 2006

AFC Wimbledon is an equal opportunities employer.

Dave's post match thoughts

"We were poor today, no question about it" said Dave Anderson after the defeat on penalties to Kingstonian. "If both teams had played until midnight they wouldn't have scored in open play. I'm disappointed with the way we played but the important thing is the score next Saturday at 4.50 pm, not today.

"The big plus from today was seeing Richard Butler back in action and looking good. We said we'd give him 20 minutes and he came through it fine. It was good to see Steve Goddard come on and do well, too."

"As for injuries, Steve Wales was always going to be restricted to 45 minutes, to make sure we took no chances over his slight groin strain. Paul Barnes picked up a slight niggle in his knee but it doesn't sound a major concern. However, in pre-season it is always safety first, so we brought him off.

"Pre-season is over now and next Saturday sees the real thing start, at last. I can't wait!"

A big "thank you" to the season ticket team

Earlier today we mailed the overwhelming majority of season tickets books to supporters. This is a lengthy and complex exercise that involves a large team of volunteers. Mags Hutchinson led the project from beginning to end, starting with planning immediately after last season's mailing was complete and seeing the whole process through.

Many volunteers are involved in the project and we would like to thank Julie Skone; Colin Gales; John Stewart; Leigh Rumbalow; Paul Raymond; Margaret Adam and Sandra Lowne, all of whom have been heavily involved in the 'production and despatch' line this week, as well as John Stewart (again); Geoff Seel; Lawrie Pym; Liam Nolan and William Davidson who worked on data entry and data quality checking.

A small number of applications, mainly very recent ones and those with queries, will be sent early next week. Please allow a few days for them to reach you before phoning us to check if yours has been despatched.

Late applicants can leave the forms and a cheque at the club shop at tomorrow's "away" friendly at Kingsmeadow. Opening times are set out in a separate article on this site. Applications which are handed over tomorrow, Saturday, will be processed and mailed in good time for the first game of the new season on Tuesday 22 August.

Squad for Kingstonian game

Dave Anderson has announced the following squad for the game against Kingstonian tomorrow, Saturday 12 August, kick off 3.00 pm:

Andy Little; Josh Lennie; Paul Smith; Steve Wales; Michael Haswell; Antony Howard; Steve Butler; Lee Kersey; Mark Rooney; Simon Sobihy; Byron Bubb; Luke Garrard; Wes Daly; Joe Paris; Paul Barnes; Darren Grieves; Richard Butler; Paul Armstrong; Steve Goddard.

"Josh Lennie has been ill with a throat infection for a week. He trained last night and so he is back in the squad. Richard Butler has been training and may get 20 minutes tomorrow. If he doesn't, he will get some game time for the reserves in their match away to Hanwell on Tuesday night.

"Roscoe will be at the ground tomorrow for the team photo but we won't be risking him for the game because he has got a slight chest infection. You might have seen he was stuggling with it on Tuesday night and we don't want to risk him. If it was a league game he'd probably play, but we aren't taking any risks at present.

"Steve Wales went off on Tuesday but he trained last night and unless he has a reaction to that he will feature tomorrow. He is still feeling his groin strain a little bit, so he is another one we won't take risks with and he may well play for only 45 minutes.

"Wayne Finnie won't be there tomorrow because he is away on a prior engagement, which we agreed with him some time ago."

Dave talked about further possible comings and goings at the club. "It is no secret that Rob Ursell and Scott Curley probably won't be with us much longer. However, we will be looking for compensation before they go. Given the situation, it makes sense for us to monitor a couple of players and that is what we are doing."

As for the game tomorrow, Dave said "I can't wait. I expect it to be a competitive game. It's a great way to end the pre-season friendlies because it will feel like a league game and that is what we need at this stage.

"I know that some people are talking about the Surrey Senior Cup final, but that is long gone. Tomorrow is about us producing a performance and I expect us to do that."

Play for the Dons

As the AFC Wimbledon Fans Team goes into the new season, the search for new players is on. And if you would like to play for your club, why not come along for training and a kickabout this Saturday August 12, ahead of the Kingstonian friendly?

The team will be put through their paces during an informal training session down at Kingsmeadow (on the car park grass) followed by a one hour session of five-a-side on the recently re-surfaced pitches opposite the ground. Everyone will be meeting outside the club shop at 11am and new players are especially welcome.

Cost of the 5-a-side is just 2 each. Please email Steve Kendrick at manager@donstrustfc.co.uk if you would like to come down on Saturday, or would simply like to find out more about the team.

The AFC Wimbledon fans team are members of the 72-team iFA national league, where most league teams are represented. The Dons finished 12th last year, while also reaching the semi-final of the iFA Cup. The vast majority of games take place on Saturday mornings and are arranged to coincide with AFCW 1st team home games and away trips.

We are looking to cover all first-team matches - home and away - and ideally are looking for a number of supporters to work on rotation.

The opportunity to 'work live' during the game, using the club's laptop & mobile connection, is preferable, or you can submit your report after the game.

Dave reflects on last night's win

Dave Anderson was not getting over-excited after last night's win against Croydon Athletic. "I've said all along that these games are about fitness for the season. We've had some tough games but I've always seen the final two pre-seasons to be a better indication of where we are.

"I said that we would try to pass the ball more this season and hopefully people will have seen that we've been doing that. Last night we passsed it short and well and I was very pleased with our performance and how confident we looked. I thought it was a comprehensive victory and sets us up well for a stern test against Kingstonian on Saturday.

"Mark Rooney showed what he can do - he does the simple things very well and never seems to waste a pass, keeping people involved and giving them passing options. The fans who were there will also have got a taste of what Byron Bubb can do. And it was good to see Speedo looking good at left wing back. Some people were surprised to see him there but he has played a lot of his career in that position and looked in good form.

"We tried out a couple of new players in Robin Shroot, a young player from Staines Academy who was recommended to us, and Robert Watkins, who has played about 40 games for Fulham reserves. We are having a look at both of them."

We asked about the injury to Steve Wales and the situation of other injured players. "It looks as if Steve's injury isn't too serious. However, we'll check it on Thursday and if he isn't ready we won't be taking any chances on him.

"Fans will have seen Richard Butler warming up with the team last night and he will be back in training on Thursday. And Steve Watson, Simon Sweeney and Chris Gell should be back in full training next week. With them all back we've got a very strong squad. And, with good players, it makes it easier to change things on the pitch, which is an option we didn't always have last season."

Youth teams go international

Recently, two of our youth sides were involved in pre-season friendlies against a touring Australian side. The Australians had contacted the club to see if we could provide any opposition for the London leg of their European tour. So, our under 13 and under 14 boys took on The Futball Institute of Australia in blistering heat, which suited the Australians more than our teams.

In a tough, physically challenging under-13 game, no quarter was spared as the tackles flew in. In fact, an ambulance was required to take one of our boys to hospital with a suspected broken wrist. However, our under-13s played the better football and, in the end, ran out 4-0 winners.

Next on were the under-14's who, in only their second game together, showed that they too could deal with a physical game. Although the Australians were strong technically, the under-14s came out on top with a 2-1 victory, both goals coming from up-and-coming striker, Tommy Batchall.

All in all, it was a good experience for all concerned. The Australians are looking to link up again on next year's tour and may well take on more age groups.

? Wednesday, 16 August, from 2.00 pm to 5.00 pm

Squad for Croydon Athletic

Dave Anderson has announced the following squad for tonight's pre-season friendly against Croydon Athletic.

Andy Little; Paul Smith; Steve Wales; Michael Haswell; Antony Howard; Steve Butler; Wayne Finnie; Lee Kersey; Mark Rooney; Byron Bubb; Luke Garrard; Wes Daly; Joe Paris; Roscoe D?Sane; Paul Barnes; Darren Grieves; Paul Armstrong; Steve Goddard.

Mark Rooney is back from a family wedding at the weekend and is expected to feature tonight.

With only two pre-seasons to go, Dave said "This game will be more like the games we'll be playing this season. I expect the tempo in this game and Saturday's game against Kingstonian to be higher than against Aldershot and that's good because it will be much more like the tempo in the league. It is great to play Conference-quality teams like Aldershot and Grays but now we need game time practising what we expect to face this season."

Dave Wager leaves the club

Dave Wager has resigned his position as Assistant Manager of AFC Wimbledon Reserves.

Dave, appointed by Terry Eames originally to work alongside Glen "Trigger" Mulcaire in the reserve set-up, has been with AFC Wimbledon since the summer of 2003.

He told us:

"I have enjoyed my 3 years at the club. I would like to thank the club for the opportunity to be involved and having the opportunity to meet and work with some fantastic people. I have made so many friends in and around the club and I will always remember them. I wish the club every success and as a Merton resident I look forward to AFC Wimbledon bringing league football back to the borough."

Dave goes with the best wishes of everyone at AFC Wimbledon (except when he's coaching a side who play us, of course!) and we expect to see him back here as a guest very soon.

Dave calls the Shots

We caught up with Dave after the Aldershot game to get his thoughts:

"I knew it would be a hard game and it didn't disappoint! I think in Grays and Aldershot we have played two teams who will end next season in the top 4 in the Conference. This season we won't come up against teams like them in the league - but it was a good pre-season exercise. I thought 4-1 was a bit harsh on us - some aspects of our play pleased me. Our shape was better, we passed the ball well at times and retained possession well.

"What upset me was the goals we conceded. You expect to be put under pressure against teams of that standard but 3 of the goals we conceded were sloppy. We didn't do the basic things correctly and got punished and the players know we need to cut the mistakes out.

"I thought Roscoe played superbly and he just seems to be getting better and better - his goal was superb. I substituted him so that both sets of fans could show their appreciation. I would never normally make a player come on as late as that in a pre-season game but I asked Finns if he would do me a favour and he did. And he didn't put a foot wrong during the 15 seconds he was on the pitch!

"On the recruitment side, we agreed terms with Lee Kersey after the game. He's a player the staff and I know well, a solid defender who is comfortable on the ball. He will prove to be a good addition to the side.

"When I came back from holiday I had a meeting with Scott Curley that covered a few subjects, the first being his sending off in Manchester. I had already spoken to various staff about that but needed to hear Scott's side of things as well. We also spoke about his personal situation. Due to a recent protracted house move and some other personal issues Scotty has been struggling to make it to training. The outcome of the meeting was that Scotty agreed to go back and discuss the issue with his wife. We had a chat the next day and he was very honest and said he was going to struggle to make all the training sessions and he couldn't commit himself in the way I need players to. On Saturday morning I got a call from Brian Statham, Heybridge's manager, asking if they could play Scotty that afternoon and I said that was fine. I intend to catch up with both Scotty and Brian today."

Cricketing test for AFC Wimbledon

AFC Wimbledon players and management will be testing their cricketing skills in a six-a-side competition which is being held on Sunday 6 August at East Molesey Cricket Club.

The club has entered two teams, a players? team plus a directors? and management team, and there will also be teams from Tempest Sports, our kit suppliers and sponsors, as well as from East Molesey. The players? team is being led by ?Frankie? Howard who talked to us about the game yesterday. ?Obviously, I can?t say too much about the game but we do have a number of secret weapons we expect to use. One of our secret weapons is Steve Butler. I am keeping tight-lipped about our tactics too but you can expect a lot of short-pitched bowling at the directors and management team - we won?t be taking any prisoners.?

Ivor Heller is captaining the directors and management team, which will feature Dickie Guy. He said ?it is just as well our game against the players starts at 3.00 pm as I?m not sure that Frankie will be able to find the ground much before that. But we are up for it and I am confident that we will cause a surprise. Bring it on.?

There will be a bar and barbecue from noon with the first game at 1.00pm and the final at about 7.00pm. The ?grudge match? between players and management is scheduled for 3.00pm with other games featuring our teams scheduled for 1.00pm and 5.00pm.

The day should be massive fun so why not turn up and support your team? The address is:

East Molesey Cricket Club,
Memorial Cricket Ground,
Graburn Way,
East Molesey,

There should be plenty of parking spaces for fans.

Shots squad and Rooney signing

Manager Dave Anderson named the following squad for tomorrow's match against Conference side Aldershot Town:

Andy Little; Paul Smith; Steve Wales; Michael Haswell; Antony Howard; Steve Butler; Wayne Finnie; Lee Kersey; Shayne Mangodza; Byron Bubb; Luke Garrard; Wes Daly; Joe Paris; Roscoe D?Sane; Paul Barnes; Darren Grieves; Paul Armstrong.

Dave gave us his thoughts on the game:

?This will be another hard game and while you want to win every match you play in, results are not the be all and all in pre season. I?m looking forward to tomorrow as it should be another good open contest.

"We have a couple of new faces in the squad. Shayne is a centre-half who played against us for Chelmsford last season. He has done well in training so it will be good to see him in a game situation, Lee Kersey is another defender - I have worked with Lee before and he is good player who was with Windsor and Eton last season. With Speedo at a wedding it will be a good chance to have a look at both players.

"Josh Lennie has been sick this week as has Paul Armstrong. Paul feels much better but we decided to give Josh the day off."

The match is to be played at The Recreation Ground, Alderhot, with a 3pm kick-off - for directions click here.

Dave also updated us on a couple of changes to the squad:

?We have agreed terms with Mark Rooney - a vastly experienced player who I worked with at Aylesbury. He has also spent time at Dagenham & Redbridge, St Albans and Barnet, and for the last two years has been at Farnborough. He is very assured on the ball, can play as a right-back, a central defender or in midfield, and he is used to playing at a good standard of football in front of a big crowd. We are delighted to have signed him as he was attracting interest from other clubs at our level and above. Sadly Roons won?t be able to play tomorrow as he is in France at a family wedding so he won?t be able to make his debut until Tuesday.

"It also looks like Rob Ursell will be moving on - after having agreed to stay in the summer Rob has had a change of mind and has asked to leave. He is not in the squad tomorrow and we don?t expect him to feature again. I have done as much as I can to keep Rob at the club but as always in these matters we don?t want to keep players against their will and we can only work with people who are 100% committed to the club. As soon as someone makes an acceptable compensation offer, Rob will be on his way."
