443 Players & Trialist’s arrived for the first pre-season training event under the watchful eyes of the Ward Brothers & their coaching staff last Saturday; Danny Ward commented ‘it was an excellent turnout……a real positive feeling from those in attendance…..a great first event and with a few others away and yet to start it was great to see the energy levels of almost all’.

The mix of Players & Trialist’s was very much as expected with many newcomers interested in breaking into the new Whitstable Town set up; with new coaching staff also eager to impress it was an impressive set up on the day, senior players mixed well with newcomers and a real air of interest abound.

If you’re interested & think your capable of breaking into the Clubs Ryman U21s or 5indeed First Team then contact the Club for Trials as competition for places will undoubtedly increase the benchmark to be set; contact with your details to include: Name-Address-Contact Numbers-Preferred Playing Position-Previous Clubs in the first instance.

But if you do be aware as fitness underpins ability and as those attending on Saturday will testify whilst it was good fun it was also gruelling; some players from last year commented ‘it was the hardest start (they had) experienced!’.

Pre-season training continues on Tuesday, Thursday & Saturdays prior to the First Team Pre-season Kick Off against Conference South Whitehawk on Saturday July 12th.
