  ST NEOTS TOWN FOOTBALL CLUB  -  AWARDS EVENING The traditional end-of-season Awards Evening was held at St Neots Town last Saturday.   The evening began with a casino and cocktails in the Walker Sports Bar and this was followed by a dinner and disco attended by more than 100 players, officials, supporters and guests.   President John Walker described the season as ‘one of the most successful in the 129 years’ history of the Club’ coming just one week after the very successful celebrations of the Academy and Scholarship that had showcased a host of awards for both League and County successes.   Less than 24 hours earlier the U18 side had lifted the Hunts County Youth Cup to make it a senior County double following the Senior team’s 6-1 victory over town neighbours Eynesbury Rovers in the Hunts Senior Cup.   It was only the third time that this double had been recorded – and the U18 side could go on to make it a League and County Cup double.   However, the main focus was on the Senior squad that had achieved their second highest number of points in the Southern League era finishing in the top half of a very competitive table that had featured twelve teams that had been former members of Step Two in non-league.   He paid tribute to Manager Matt Clements, now the longest serving Manager of the club since its elevation to the Southern League, and his management team and the players who had achieved the success.   He previewed the upcoming 2018/19 season when St Neots would be competing in the newly created Southern League Central Premier Division that would mean a significant reduction in travelling following their six seasons in the Southern League, saying that the new season with six weeks pre-season preparation was now only seven weeks away!   The Reserve team playing at the highest level in the Club’s history had suffered a torrid season but that the experience gained by a youthful side would hold them in good stead in the next season.   He then introduced recently appointed Club Chairman Barry Cavilla whose playing record at the Club stretched from 1976 to 1988 with 236 appearances for the club during that period.   Barry thanked all the volunteers who were the lifeblood of the Club and predicted even better things going forward. There was then the usual clutch of Awards presented by the Chairman, Barry Cavilla: Those Awards were as follows: U18 side Players’ Player of the Year:                Leon Fulianty Managers Player of the Year:             Archie Southeran Leading goal scorer:                           Kieran Waites   Reserve side Players’ Player of the Year:                Tom Mitchell Managers Player of the Year:            Kevin Ashby Leading goal scorer                            Joe Rider   Senior team Supporters Player of the Year:           Luke Knight Players’ Player of the Year:                Luke Knight Managers Player of the Year:             Luke Knight Leading goal scorer:                           Dylan Williams   The coveted Clubman of the Year Trophy was awarded to Andy Clay.   The recently introduced policy of honouring the Club’s Unsung Heroes, a group of unpaid but highly committed persons without which the club could not function, were also made.   These included Dianne Sales, Clare Meeks, Marian Izzard, Emily Dodson, Mike Green, Gary Wilson, Richard Pyke, Louise Sales, Paul Dodson, Dan Dodson, Gary Jackson, Kayleigh-Ann Burt and Mick Hunt.

  The Football Club is delighted to announce confirmation that a BRAND NEW Artificial Grass Pitch will be built in the coming weeks as we increase our range of top class facilities. Our new training surface will replace the existing 3G on the site next to the First Team Stadium. The current surface is being removed to make way for the latest in state of the art grass technology and will provide the perfect home for the teams at the club next season. With work due to start this month there may be some minor disruptions at Rowley Park (St Neots Town FC) while construction is being completed but details of which will be communicated in due course. The new AGP (Artificial Grass Pitch) will be full 11 v 11 adult size with a viewing area for spectators and relevant markings and appropriate goals for all our Academy Squads U8-U18. We believe this improvement will only consolidate our position as the outstanding club in Huntingdonshire and provide a excellent venue to host home fixtures for our impressive teams moving forward. Players will enjoy the luxury of an artificial pitch incorporating the latest hi-tech specifications for football and this enhancement will therefore see the introduction in a very strict code of conduct & set of user guidelines. Litter, food or incorrect footwear (blades or metal studs) will not be permitted on the pitch under any circumstances - moulded studs or astro turf football boots must be worn at all times. We are very excited and proud of the achievement that getting this addition to the facility represents - thank you to all those who have supported the club in order to make this dream a reality

UPCOMING MATCH PREVIEW St Neots round off their league season on Saturday with a match more important to their visitors than to themselves with Gosport Borough visiting town.    With the title and the play-off clubs now decided, the drama in the Southern League Premier Division this week centred on the one relegation place to be decided.   Last Saturday Gosport fired the first shot with a totally unexpected 7-0 demolition of struggling Frome Town whilst Dunstable grabbed a point in a 0-0 draw with St Ives Town.   That left the bottom two sides each with fourteen points and an identical goal difference of -107.   However, Dunstable had a game in hand away at Biggleswade which they won 2-0 with the showdown between the two sides at Dunstable on Thursday (after this preview was written) absolutely key.   So, the complicated position is as follows.   If Dunstable gained a point or more on Thursday, Gosport are relegated but if Gosport won at Dunstable, then todays match at St Neots and Dunstable’s trip to Frome will decide the outcome, possibly with goal difference the deciding factor.    You could not wish for a more dramatic late finale to a season over nine months and 46 matches.   One final note.   St Neots skipper Luke Knight is due to lead out his side against Gosport on Saturday to record his 102nd senior appearance for the club stretching back to 9th August 2008 when he made his debut at home to Newport Pagnell.  St Neots won 3-1 – could this be an omen?   John Walker

  UPCOMING MATCH PREVIEW After last weekend’s programme of matches in the Southern League Premier Division, our hosts on Saturday, Kings Lynn Town still required five points from their remaining two matches to ensure a home tie in the first round of the play-off matches come the end of the season.   That was because they dropped two points last Saturday in a tight away draw with Slough who are also now assured of a play-off finish.   Apart from our trip to The Walks on Saturday, Lynn round off their campaign with a trip on Saturday week to Chesham who are destined to finish just outside the play-off positions – and they cannot guarantee victory there!    On Tuesday evening Hereford clinched the title with victory at Biggleswade whilst Slough and Kettering kept up the pressure on Lynn with victories at Hitchin and Gosport. Now just eight years old the reformed Kings Lynn Town are eager to return to Step Two, but they had to start at Step Five in the United Counties League Premier Division in 2010/11 where despite amassing 103 points they finished runners-up to our lads before winning promotion to the Northern Premier League the following year and then transferring to the Southern League.   We have played at The Walks in league competition three times, winning 4-2 in the UCL in 2010/11 before drawing 1-1 in the Southern League two seasons ago and winning 2-1 last season thanks to two goals from Jevani Brown.   Earlier this season at the Premier Plus Stadium we were overrun by the Linnets who beat us 5-0. Our midweek performance at home to Banbury will have boosted confidence and with four wins in our last five league outings we can travel to The Walks confident of giving a good account of ourselves but with four wins and two draws in their last six games the Linnets will also be looking to complete their first of two important steps to the runners-up prize.   John Walker

UPCOMING MATCHES PREVIEW After last weekend’s hectic programme normality resumes with the more familiar Saturday/Tuesday pattern of matches.   The Saturday afternoon visitors are Redditch United who by their own standards and expectations have had a second consecutive disappointing season.   Three seasons ago they only just missed out on the play-offs finishing sixth, just a point behind our lads despite having topped the table at Christmas.   The following season having been deducted three points for an ineligible player they finished runners-up to Poole but were beaten in the semi-final play off by Leamington and last season they fell to finish seventeenth.   At present (prior to the midweek matches) they were fourteenth in the table three points behind our lads, after last weekend losing narrowly at home to promotion chasing Weymouth.   Last season for the first time Redditch lost at St Neots after four consecutive victories at the Premier Plus Stadium. Next Tuesday Banbury United are the final midweek visitors of the season.   After being very early season leaders of the table Banbury have spent most of the season just outside the play-off places and are currently ninth, eight points and five places ahead of our lads at the time these notes were penned.   At the end of the 2014/15 season Banbury finished 21st in the table and was relegated to the South and West Division but roared back to win promotion back to the Premier Division at their first attempt.   In our nine meetings with Banbury we have won four times and drawn twice but all four of those victories came in our first five meetings, so some recent improvement would be desirable.   Earlier in the season we travelled to Banbury returning with a creditable draw thanks to a Dylan Williams goal in the second half, having trailed at half time.   Banbury are a fan-owned club and have been playing at Step Three since the year 2000.   Recently their best showing at this level was last season when they finished sixth – just one place but five points below the play-offs.   John Walker

UPCOMING MATCHES PREVIEW Following a completely washed-out Easter programme – the first time since joining the Southern League – St Neots face a titanic five days over the coming weekend when they have to face three League games.   For Manager Matt Clements and his squad, it will be the ultimate test of fitness and availability with a derby match and more than 250 miles on the road. It all kicks off on Thursday evening when St Ives arrive for a second attempt at fitting in the return league match.   In January the two sides shared two goals in a 1-1 draw at Westwood Road – that match also re-dated after a call-off on New Years’ Day – with St Neots trailing at half time and down to ten men with Johnny Herd dismissed for two cautions, but a late goal from Nabil Shariff earned a share of the spoils.   A glance at the records shows that the last time we defeated St Ives in a league match was here on 25th April 2011 although we have only met in league combat home and away three times since then.   That victory made St Neots Club history for it clinched the United Counties League championship and propelled us into Step Four and the Southern League for the first time in our history.  Then on Saturday there is a trip to Kings Langley who are in their second season at Step Three and have yet to make a significant impact.   Currently twenty-first in the table they might well be facing relegation at the end of the season but for the fact that the reorganisation of Step Three next season means one and not four teams to face the drop.   Last season they finished twentieth just goal difference ahead of Cambridge City who were demoted.   At home this season they have won four times in 19 starts beating Bishop’s Stortford, Dunstable, and Stratford plus Royston who were their highest placed scalp.  They played twice over the Easter weekend beating Farnborough away 4-0 before losing at home to Hitchin on Easter Monday. Then on Monday the testing rearranged trip to Dorchester.   Despite having four consecutive home victories over the Magpies, trips to Dorset have been far less productive with two defeats and a draw in three visits.   The former Conference members have not fared well in the Southern League since their relegation, finishing 17th, 13th and 18th, and they are currently 20th in the table with just 42 points, but their home record is good with ten straight wins from 20 matches.   At the weekend, like St Neots,  they lost their Monday match at home to Tiverton.
