26 August 2018 – Messaage from Les

Dear all , the results are tough to take right now and we are working hard to rectify the situation both on the training pitch and personal . Our defending and the fact that we arn’t taking our chances are hurting us . We must and we will do better.

I have gone on record as saying that our season won’t start until October due to the way things were when I came in and I maintain that that will be the case

Les.


21 August 2018 – Manager’s update 

It’s been a fantastic start to our season with so much happening in such a short space of time both on and off the pitch.

Players continue to come and go as expected as we continue to build a first team squad that we believe can be competitive at this level. We are continually working hard to add quality players to our playing staff such as Curtis Osano, with league experience that will help our more youthful players develop. We are mindful of keeping a youthful squad that will form the future of Godalming Town and this, together with the now successful formation or our 16-19s academy can only bode well for the future.

We would also like to welcome Becky as our team Physio, she will, with her pitch-side experience prove to be valuable not just dealing with injurie’s but also the rehab of our players.

As I have previously mentioned it will take a reasonable amount of time for us to be playing a style of football that we would like and I still feel that we are 3 or 4 weeks behind where I would like to be at this stage.

Our playing squad are working tirelessly to achieve performances that will bring positive results. We will not stop moving forward until we achieve success and stability.

Can’t tell you all how disappointing it was for me to miss our first league game and our first point but it couldn’t be helped.

It’s sad that our exit from the FA Cup is so soon but we weren’t quite ready to meet a well drilled outfit such as Horndean but l’m sure that a future meeting won’t produce such a resounding win in their favour especially in light of the weeks preparations being spoilt with my weeks jaunt to hospital.

Once again thank you to everyone at the club for your help and support

Les
