    I'm well excited for the new season in a new league.

    Here's the pre-season fixtures:
    (See all the chat from last year's season here).

    When are the league fixtures out, does anyone know?

    I'll pencil in the Palace and Huddersfield friendlies (fair play to them for attracting some big sides btw).

    Not been able to find out but the Premier League fixtures are out on the 19th June so probably around the same time.

    I'm so up for quite a few more away games this season. Can't wait for Lewes!

    There will be a new home strip this season as well.

    Top Tip: if you see the blokes in the club shop ("the megashed") you can request a sponsorless shirt. No way am I losing my radical urbanist street cred by having an estate agent's logo on my chest.

    Can't quite understand this, but Maidstone have been awarded 'Team of the Season' for last year by the Ryman league. And the league team of the season is stuffed with Maidstone players. Have they forgotten we won the league?!

    The theory is that people who run the Isthmian have for a long time disliked us (suggested reasons include personality clashes, our opinionated/truculent support and most alarmingly the ethnicity of our squads). Quite where all this exists on the solid truth / partisan mythology continuum I'm not sure, but last season (Leatherhead replay, dodgy refs, unpunished Maidstone naughtiness and now the 'Team of the Year' awards) provides some evidence.

    Ah yes, the well-known and loved President & Chairman Alan Turvey:

    ...who incurred the wrath of AFC Wimbledon fans about 5 years ago when he docked them 18 points for fielding an ineligible player. Someone allegedly posted a death threat through his door!

    Reassuring to know that even at regional, non-league level the fine tradition of all sport being run by complete wankers is alive and well.:)

    Gavin Rose has been busy. Frankie Sawyer and Josh Turner have been released. Three new players, inc. a new striker.

    oooooohhh....!

    Midfielder - profile here from the Lewes website: http://www.lewesfc.com/player/karl-beckford/

    Oduniake is a pacy centre forward. Replacement for Carr I guess. Vines is a striker too.

    Are the fixtures out yet? I can't wait for Lewes away.

    another month to wait - w/c 15 July iirc.

    But there's also an ongoing problem with Thurrock iirc, who were docked three points at the end of the season and relegated from the Ryman Prem. They dispute the deduction and have taken the matter to court, threatening to go all the way to Europe - which has led to rumours that the fixtures may be delayed until the last minute.

    *Had to look up Thurrock to see where it was.

    Oh! Look at their stand!

    Might have to visit that. And there's a handy hotel next door.

    Here's where they are. It looks a glamorous location alright.

    Another Turvey/Wimbledon fact: he was on the three man commission who OK'd the move to Milton Keynes. It's perhaps his single saving grace that he's generally believed to be the one who voted against the relocation.

    Interesting - never knew that.

    The magic of the cup begins. Hamlet drawn at home to Dorking or Shoreham or Walton Casuals in the FA Cup First Qualifying Round, to be played Saturday 14th September. Can feel a tin foil FA Cup replica coming on... (with pink & blue ribbons obviously!)

    First friendly tomorrow night - home to Dagenham & Redbridge. Might pop along if I can get out of work in time.

    On another note, glad to note yesterday that the lane dividers in Brockwell Lido are, naturally, pink & blue :)

    Bump - anyone fancy this tonight? A few beers in the sun, the first friendly of the season and a chance to see the new signings.....

    I'd love to go but have a local thing on I have to go to.
    Fancy taking some pics and pennng a report for Brixton Buzz?

    There's currently a very good chance that we're going to sponsor the club in some way or another this season (match sponsor/billboard) and make them our Official Team!
