Successful first season in Ryman for AFC Sudbury

Congratulations to Mark Morsley, his staff and players who, at Rymans recent Presentation Evening, were awarded the Team of Division North due to their League and Cup exploits, a great achievement in the club's first season at this level.

Congratulations to Mark Morsley, his staff and players who, at Rymans recent Presentation Evening, were awarded the Team of Division North due to their League and Cup exploits, a great achievement in the club's first season at this level. This, however, only adds to the expectation of the season but, if anything, it will be a harder League to get out of than last season as the teams that have come in are just as strong as those that have departed. One team that will definitely not be competing this year is Enfield who have now folded although this is likely to lead to Enfield Town being stronger.

The club will be holding its AGM at the clubhouse on Friday, July 20 at 7.30 pm and it is important that as many supporters attend as possible.

The club has announced a small increase in admission charges, namely £7 for adults and concessions £4, season tickets being £115 and £65 and, as in previous seasons, in order to try to encourage youngsters to the games, admission will be free for under 14's. Admission for the Reserve games will remain the same. The cost of admission to Friendlies will be £3.50 for adults and £2 concessions.

You always know that when the fixtures come out the new Season is not far away and our start will be far from easy. Aveley who we beat at home but lost away are to visit us on the 18th August and then we have two away games against teams who we failed to beat last campaign, namely Maldon and Enfield Town.

Our friendlies got off to an inauspicious start at Harwich and Parkeston on Saturday when we went down 3-1. Our hosts took the lead at 11 minutes when we failed to deal with a free kick. Gareth Heath equalised on 40 minutes but two goals in a 12 minute period in the second half led to Mark Morsleys' unwanted record of failing to beat his former clubs continuing for a while. The new lad, Boardley, impressed on the left flank and Artun also looked useful on the right side. Neither Luke Hammond nor Tommy Noble took part in the game as they are both recovering from injuries.

On Saturday we travel to Leiston, kick-off 3pm and are away then to Diss on Wednesday, July 25 at 7.45pm.
