Thank you from Simon Overland
I would like to thank those, who attended the game on Saturday.
Speaking to many of you, I was overwhelmed with
your kind words and the generosity you had shown - and for that - I am
Throughout my time at the club I have come to realise that many people work tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure the club is run in a professional manner.
This includes looking after us players! In addition to the hard work they already do, these people have gone beyond the call of duty for me and my family over the past four weeks and for this I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Your acts of good have demonstrated why this club
is so special.
I would like to give a special mention to Ray Leader and Ray Turner. I am indebted to you for the help and support you have given me during this time and since I started at the club.
Wendy Walker for nagging me and getting me into
gear! Also, a big thank you to Geoff for going around the ground with the
bucket during the match on Saturday.
Peter Pritchard, Scott Davenport, Gary Metcalfe, all of the players and all of you wonderful supporters; thank you. You've been incredible!!
It is a privilege and an honour to play for Faversham Town and I look forward to the day when I can put a Faversham shirt back on and represent this great club.
"Together we move on stronger" - Turner
Faversham Town first-team manager Ray Turner had this message for the club's fans and his players after yesterday's (Saturday) 3-1 loss to Whitstable Town:
"I wanted to say thank you, from myself and the players, for your fantastic support on Saturday and throughout the season.
"This club has come so far, recent attendances have really shown the potential of the club and give us a real chance of progressing to the next level both on and off the pitch.
"It was not a bad performance on Saturday by any means.
"For me, we controlled the game up to the point when Dean Grant received a red card, which I felt, was completely unjust. From that moment, the dynamic of the match changed.
"But, sometimes it is not your day and it's easy to focus on a disappointing score line, rather than the overall display.
"I would also like to pay tribute to my players. They have provided tremendous entertainment and not let you down on many occasions.
"I know you have put your hand in your pockets on
Saturday and generously raised funds for Simon Overland. So, thank
you, once again!
So, thank you, once again!
"There are many distractions on the TV on a Tuesday night but please get yourself back to Salters Lane (for the match against Chipstead).
"Together we move on stronger!"
