Following last night's friendly at Rusthall, first team boss Martin Larkin was delighted to secure the signings of defender Tom Bryant and forward Danny Powell (who marked the night scoring the first goal). In addition goalkeeper Stephen Lawrence has opted to stay at Culverden for the coming year.
With the first three summer signings revealed, it's an exciting prospect having Brendon Cass added to the core of a side that produced 90 league goals last season. Cass has been a goal-scoring hit at all of his previous clubs and has winners medals to show for his exploits, yet as www.tunbridgewellsfc.com found out in an interview with the player - he has the success of the team at heart for this coming season, ultimately...
TWFC: Firstly, welcome to Culverden! Tell us something that few people know about Brendon Cass…
Martin Larkin outlined earlier in the summer that he wanted to add some leadership to the mix to support Jason Bourne and Joe Fuller. It would appear he’s succeeded as today he discusses the signings he’s made to support a serious title assault for 20014/15 season with www.tunbridgewellsfc.com.
The draw for the FA Competitions has been made at FA HQ today:
Tunbridge Wells will visit fellow SCEFL outfit Holmesdale in the FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round on Saturday, August 16 (KO 3pm). The prize for the winner will be an away match with either our near neighbours Sevenoaks Town or East Preston (Sussex County League) in the Preliminary round on Saturday, August 30. Peacehaven & Telscombe (Ryman Premier League) await the side to emerge victorious from the Preliminary Round tie.
Tunbridge Wells first team manager Martin Larkin remains tight-lipped about who his squad includes for this coming season – at least for the next few days. One piece of news that many at Culverden will be pleased to hear is that Chris Seenan remains, waiting to show the club that there’s more to come from him. That’s pretty encouraging when you consider he hit 10 goals in 17 games for the club last year.
We caught up with Seenan to discuss the off-season so far; his expectations for the new season; and English World Cup failure through Scottish eyes…
Martin Larkin and his Tunbridge Wells side came into last season with some high standards set from the preceding year. During the course of Season 2013/14, the board, headed by new chairman Clive Maynard, set about preparing Culverden to host Ryman League football should the team follow up on the silverware and Wembley appearance of 2012/13 with a league win. Promotion wasn’t forthcoming, however, and ultimately The Wells had to be content with a fourth place finish in the Southern Counties (East) Football League.
