Our new matchday programme has been very well received, with one fan describing it as better than most Football League club programmes heâ€™s seen. Have you tried it yet?
Weâ€™ve got another interesting line-up on Saturday, including an exclusive interview with Jon Boardman in which he talks about his affection for the Club. â€˜The Ranterâ€™ returns! And weâ€™ve got another lovely slice of Neil Bennettâ€™s â€˜Life Sentenceâ€™. Plus lots more!
Some of the highlights are:
Page 3 â€“ Graham Baker reflects on recent encounters with Worcester City and Chelmsford City:
â€œâ€¦.weâ€™ve made a decent start to the season. Had the results reflected our â€˜shareâ€™ of the four games so far â€“ even against Chelmsford we had the better of the game on balance â€“ we would have been off to a â€˜flyerâ€™. But, to use that well-worn expression, itâ€™s a marathon, not a sprint, and thereâ€™s a very long way to go yet.â€�
Page 7 â€“ Mike Deavin goes back 20 years to recall our last, highly significant, meetings with our visitors on Saturday in our Isthmian Premier Championship-winning season.
Pages 8-9 â€“ Tom Barnardo interviews Jon Boardman:
â€œI love this club and Iâ€™ve always loved my time here... thereâ€™s no better place for me to rebuild my career.â€�
Page 13 â€“ The Ranter is back!
â€œTalking of turnips, what on earth are the FA playing at? Somebody observed â€œFA is the beginning of â€˜Farceâ€™â€� and, although Ray Cooney may not have scripted the â€œhilarious trouser-dropping meeting about Chesterâ€™s admission to the Conferenceâ€�, it tickled a funny bone or two in the Welsh bordersâ€¦â€�
Page 24 â€“ Double-page team photo for your bedroom wall!
Page 28 â€“ Neil Bennett continues his wry musings on life and Woking and ponders our need for a â€˜folk heroâ€™:
â€œWhilst [Gezâ€™s] own restlessness was palpable, our desperation could not have been more splendidly underlined than by replacing him with a bloke whose primary function appeared to be reaching bathroom fittings off the top shelf in B&Q to save troubling the old bloke with the step-ladder.â€�
Pages 36-37 - KC gets into the kitchen and conjures up a fruit Medley in honour of our striker.
And, of course, the rest of the programme is packed full with all the usual reports, previews, statistics and great photos.
