Tunbridge Wells FC player of the decade is Perry Spackman.

Signed for The Wells by Martin Larkin from Sevenoaks Town in September 2009, Perry went on to be a mainstay in The Wells defence serving under 3 different managers in his ten years at The Culverden.

Perry’s combative style of play and no nonsense approach gained him adulation from the south stand. He was an integral member of the famous 2013 Wells squad that won the Kent senior trophy Vs Lordswood along with reaching the FA Vase final at Wembley Vs Spennymoor Town.

The Wells returned to winning ways and signed off from 2019 with a ruthless display against a relegation bound Crowborough Athletic.

Jordan Wells gave The Wells a 1-0 half time lead when he fired home the rebound from
Jason Thompson’s free kick which had cannoned off the Crows bar.

The Crows pulled level 5mins into the second half when Sam Carrington’s lofted through ball found Jack Funnell who finished deftly.

The Crows were reduced to ten men when Luke Leppard received a second yellow card for another crude challenge on Jordan Wells on 68mins.

The Wells host Crowborough Athletic on Saturday.

The Crows have endured a torrid time this season and sit second from bottom (19th) after 19 games on 13pts.

Their playing record comprises of 4 wins, 1 draw and 14 defeats while conceding an eye watering 63 goals along the way.

The Crows have managed to win just once away from home this season, a 0-2 win at Punjab Utd on Match day #2 back in August.

Having suffered successive defeats, The Wells look to get back to winning ways at The Culverden.

The Wells created early chances but Danny Powell was unable to convert from 2 yards out. Powell and Jason Thompson both missed headers to put The Wells in front.

Jai McKinley’s looping header gave The Lords the lead on 21mins.

A lacklustre second half display saw The Wells unable to create any real chances and Lordswood deservedly added a second goal on 72mins when Alex Brefo rifled home a good move off the crossbar.

The Wells travel to Martyn Grove on Saturday to face Lordswood in the SCEFL premier division.

The Lords sit 14th after 17 games on 19pts. Their playing record consists of 5 wins, 4 draws and 8 defeats.

( 3-3 ). All of their wins coming against teams currently placed tenth or lower.

The Wells dug in and earned a valuable 3pts away at K Sports.

K Sports were a big improvement on the side that lost 7-0 at The Culverden in September and rattled The Wells bar late in the first half however both defences were on top as the first half ended goalless.

The Wells took the lead through Fjord Rogers on 55mins when The Wells target man rifled home from Josh Froggatt’s cross.

Tom Woolridge went closest to equalising for the Paperboys but his long range effort was brilliantly saved by Simon Overland.
