Hill Wishes Cards ‘All The Best’ Following Departure

By Jacob Greenwood

Garry Hill has spoken for the first time since leaving his position at Woking last week and told reporters that there is no animosity from himself towards the club.

Hill spent over six years at Kingfield and during that time took The Cards from The National League South to The National League and reflected on recent developments prior to watching Dagenham & Redbridge face Forest Green Rovers. He told The National League’s social media team:

“I’ve had six and half wonderful years there and I wish the club all the best. There is a change going on which I think every club on and off the pitch needs at times. Hopefully it is for the right reasons for the players, supporters and volunteers.

“There is no animosity from myself and I wish them all the best.”

Hill has been replaced by Anthony Limbrick as new investors pursue a fresh start at Kingfield. Limbrick has worked with youth teams at both Southampton and West Ham as well as at an International level for England. Cards fans will get a chance to hear him speak at a fans forum on Wednesday which is being held at Kingfield.

England set for Bermuda test


Jacob Greenwood

Following a four week break since the play-off final, in which Newport County confirmed their place in League two next season, the England C team take on Bermuda in a friendly tonight.

Manager Paul Fairclough takes his England side, which is picked of non-league players who are yet to play in the football league, abroad for the first time since their game in Albania was postponed at the last minute in October due to a waterlogged pitch.

Talking ahead of the game at the National Stadium in Hamilton Fairclough told that he will be using the game to take a look at his options ahead of next season’s International Challenge Trophy.

“With a number of players now too old for the next International Challenge Trophy, this trip will enable me to look at a few options for the new campaign to see how they fit in with those players still eligible.”

The game will kick-off tonight at 23.30 BST

Full squad – Preston Edwards (Ebbsfleet United FC), Mitchell Walker (Dover Athletic FC), Daniel Bradley (Alfreton Town FC) Antoni Sarcevic (Chester FC), James Norwood (Forest Green Rovers FC),  Christopher Stokes (Forest Green Rovers FC), Joshua Gillies (Gateshead FC),  Sam Clucas (Hereford United FC), Ryan Bowman (Hereford United FC), Michael Demetriou (Kidderminster Harriers FC), Anthony Malbon (Kidderminster Harriers FC), Andre Gray (Luton Town FC), Ryan Jackson (Macclesfield Town FC), Harry Beautyman (Sutton United FC), Anthony Acheampong (Welling United FC), Fraser Franks (Welling United FC).
