“It might be a good time to get out and start running!”
Ray Turner, Manager
Matches against Gillingham at Shepherd Neame Stadium and then away at Northampton Town’s Under 21s kick off an eight-game programme to prepare for 2018/19 in the Bostik League South.
The squad return on 30 June for a six-week pre-season of fixtures, fitness and preparation, with Ray promising many familiar faces when they return to be put through their paces by assistant manager Clive Walker.
Ray told FTFC TV how he had learned valuable lessons from last season’s tough campaign and wanted to reinforce a strong team identity and work ethic to the club.
He assured fans he was working hard behind the scenes to bring in a few new players to “get a better balance to the side”.
And Ray grinned: “If the boys are listening to this, they’ve probably only got a few more weeks before Clive gets at them, so it might be a good time to get out and start running!”
The match against Northampton Town U21s on Saturday 7 July has now been confirmed as a 12.30pm kick-off at Moulton College, Northampton.
