Rochester Game Off

The league match at Rochester tomorrow (Saturday 3 March) has been postponed because of the snow, as have all other games in the SCEFL this weekend.

The next scheduled match for Whitstable is the rearranged cup tie against Deal Town at the Belmont on Tuesday evening. The ground is currently covered in snow and the surrounding areas are dangerously icy, but the temperature is forecast to recover gradually from tomorrow, so keep an eye on the website for updates.

Kent Senior Trophy Final Travel

As most people are aware, Whitstable Town are playing Sheppey United in the final of the Kent Reliance Senior Trophy on Sunday 8th April. The match kicks off at 2 p.m. at the Gallagher Stadium, the home of Maidstone United. The club are arranging transport for supporters who wish to travel by coach. The cost for the return journey will be £8 and the departure time will be 12 p.m.from the Belmont Ground car park entrance in Grimshill Road. If you are interested, please book your seat with Joe or Ron, or alternatively email Let us know as soon as possible, so that the arrangements can be finalised.

If you are planning to make your own way to the Gallagher Stadium, directions can be obtained, as usual, by clicking the relevant link on the fixture on this website. You can also find details about travel to the ground on the Maidstone United Website here: Directions to Gallagher Stadium. Please note that car parking at the stadium is extremely limited. If you are thinking of travelling by train, there are scheduled engineering works between Rainham and Rochester on the day of the final.

There is likely to be a large crowd at the game, so it would be nice to see as many Whitstable fans as possible in the ground to support the team. If you would like any further information, please get in touch.

Fixture Updates

The much postponed SCEFL Challenge Cup quarter final, Whitstable Town v Deal Town, will now take place on Tuesday 6th March, assuming the winter weather improves by then.

The league match at Crowborough has once more been pushed back another week and is now scheduled for Tuesday 13th March.

Charity Events At The Belmont

The quiz night at the football ground on Saturday 24th February was a successful and enjoyable evening and the sum of £390 was raised for the chosen charity, Prostate Cancer UK. Thanks are due to Rob and Oscar for their hard work in organising and running the event, also to Bob and David for helping on the night and not forgetting all of those who came along to take part.

There will be another quiz later in the year and the club is planning to hold a charity football match towards the end of the current season. Look out for further details and please come along to support if you are able.

The next charity event at the Belmont is on Saturday (3rd March) and is the second fundraiser to be held at the football club in aid of the local Canterbury Food Bank. Food Bank Rocks starts at 6 p.m. (doors open at 5 p.m.) and features live music from a number of bands and a raffle. All donations are for the benefit of the food bank.

As There Is No Football…

Here are some pictures from a wintry looking Belmont Ground following the initial snowfall from The Beast From The East. Conditions are forecast to get much worse before somewhat milder conditions return during the weekend.

Fixture updates will be communicated once confirmed.

Cup Tie Snowed Off

The SCEFL Challenge Cup quarter final match against Deal Town has had to be postponed again, this time due to the heavy snow that has fallen overnight in Whitstable and covered the ground.

The teams will try again next week, if the weather allows.
