Next up - Staines Town
Saturday, 17th August at Wodson Park SG12 0UQ;
BetVictor Isthmian League Div. 1 (South Central); kick off 3pm.

Admission - Adults £10, Concessions £5, under-14s free with paying adult.

Well, here we are again, that conflicting moment when the seemingly long wait for the new season is at last about to end and we find ourselves saying "What, already?".

Our visitors for this opening match are Staines Town. It will be their first game at Wodson Park and their first time in Ware since 1987. That was in an FA Cup second replay which we won 4-2, our only victory over Staines in six meetings though we are unbeaten at home.

Staines had a season to forget last year with just four wins in 42 games inevitably leading to relegation from the Southern League premier south division. If the supporters' predictions on the league website in the close season are any guide then they are an outside bet to make the playoffs.

The programme for this game (£1.50 on the gate) includes the fixtures, results and tables for all our age teams from last season; a tribute to Sean Mynott; and Aiden's Astroturf series which will address the common issue of money in football, from the Football league down to the likes of Ware following the loss of our goal scoring trio from last year.

Don't forget that the club shop opens at 2.30 and half time. Jan will be there to help with your purchases.
