“ What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city. It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love"
I'm gan (though missing the final). I'm just hoping for a goal in the first half (for us, obviously). Have you noticed how much better we play when a goal up, rather than chasing the opener? Well it puts less pressure on my heart anyway.
CUGS: "MAKE NO MISTAKE - WE'RE GOING FOR THIS Monday, 29 April 2013 Written By Mick Cork Folkestone Invicta resume their three-game 2012/13 ‘world series’ against moneybags Maidstone United tomorrow, Tuesday, and after the two league encounters in the regular season both ended with honours even, this time there’s got to be a finish in the Ryman One South Play-Off Semi-Final.
Invicta fans were out early in the Sunday morning sunshine to snap up their modest allocation of 300 or so tickets as the Stones have opted for an all-ticket tie.
Maidstone’s final home league game on Saturday ended with a 3-0 win over strugglers Horsham – but with title rivals Dulwich Hamlet taking the point they needed from a 1-1 draw against Burgess Hill, it was the London outfit who finish as champions while the ambitious Stones must fight their way through the play-offs if they are to earn promotion to the Ryman Premier.
