Next up - Romford home on Tuesday, 21st August at Wodson Park SG12 0UQ; Velocity Trophy Preliminary Round, kick off 7.45pm.

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

When we left the scene of our pre-season win over Romford in July we wished them well for the coming season. Our ways had apparently parted when we were moved into the South Central Division whilst they remained in the North.

No one thought that we would meet again exactly a calendar month later but we had reckoned without the league cup. With the expansion of Step 4 it's a competition that now has more participating clubs than for a long time. Hence this game is part of the revived preliminary round, our first game at this stage of the competition since 2001 and a 4-3 defeat at Croydon Athletic.

This will be our first midweek game of the current season, a chance to see the new surface under lights. You may also see some new and different faces as we can expect that John Dreyer will give some peripheral members of the squad a run out in this game.

The programme is £1.50 on the gate and will include the usual range of articles. Of those Aiden's "Astroturf" series takes a look at the finances of premier clubs in the light of the recent report that suggests half of them don't need fans at games to make a profit.
