Hi guys, I haven't heard back from Hampton & Richmond Borough ahead of Saturday, however, which such strong interest, would love to organise 7-a-side football amongst us fans if anyone is interested to tick over and play amongst ourselves? I'm thinking 7-a-side at Wimbledon Goals at 11am? If game pls comment below. Thanks

Not that I'd be involved, but surely a Supporters' Team should be to try to play 11-a-sides against other sides, in the main? A kickabout amongst yourselves isn't really a supporters' team, it's just a few mates having exactly that....a kickabout?

It should be, yes. But at short notice, and with the ideal opposition (H&RB) not playing ball, this is a great alternative.

Hampton have confirmed they won't be fielding a supporters team, so instead we'll be doing a minimum 5-a-side up to 7-a-side DHFC Supporters Game in Wimbledon on Saturday at 11am. If you haven't already, please DM/PM me your number to be added to the whatsapp group. Thanks!

Really?
Rav, Matt from Maidstone United supporters team has contacted me about playing us again. This time they would come to the KNK if we can book the 3G pitch on a Saturday morning when both teams are playing at home. He suggested 29th September.

Hi All

We are still looking for a few more players for the game on Saturday vs Leyton Orient Supporters, KO 10:30 at Hackney Marshes (before our home game vs Chippenham.)

Interested?

I would have come to watch, but I think that it's cutting it fine to get to Venereal Fields for kick off, it is certainly doable without any delays. But...I'm down for '50/50' volunteer duties. mynameislaraine: That's the first mention of the game on here....surely someone could push fixtures a bit earlier than a few days before the game? (Not specifically moaning at you, not sure who runs the team)

Mish, is this you offering to help? :D Laraine is organising and has got a team together for 10am at hackney. That's pretty good going, I'm sure you'll agree.

I'm on the hunt for the kit. I was told Mike had it after the Maidstone game, but he hasn't replied to my message.

Son of Roy do you still have it?

No I am not offering to help, as I am working that day....As someone who was one of the founder members of the 'current' Supporters' Team, way back in May 1989, and as one who kept the team together throughout the Nineties, with the help of others, and instigated the tours abroad, I think I have more than done my service.

If I had the time then I would have offered my services already.

I am merely interested in knowing where fixtures are so I can and watch them, when I am not stuck at work, if time allows.

At the moment everything is a little ramshackle as the team wasn't really functioning prior to this season - a few people have kindly and enthusiastically organised things independently and it seems to have a little traction in a few different places. There isn't one place where the info resides at the moment as there isn't one person organising it. You'll have to bare with it until that's sorted.

It'd be helpful if you could come from a place of support even if you're not happy with how you personally may have been missed out. Your need for an explanation on the internal 5 a side, for example, although undoubtedly from a good place (retaining the spirit of 89,) could also be seen as a bit negative. Cheers

I am a bit bemused by your second sentence...to say the least!

"It'd be helpful if you could come from a place of support even if you're not happy with how you personally may have been missed out.

The reason I'm interested in being kept in the loop, with a little bit of advance notice, IS to offer support! i'm sure I'm not the only one from the 'old guard' who would like nothing better than to enjoy standing on a touchline cheering you on, and don't see anything I've posted as not being supportive. If peole want to have a kickaround for fun...good luck to them, but to call an internal 5-a-side 'a supporters' game' is nonsensical.

I, personally, am delighted that the Supporters' Team is to be re-launched, to be honest I'm a bit put out at the suggestion that i'm being negative toward it. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Just a shame I can't tell you this personally, as like many on here you hide behind a nom de plume, it's much easier to be understood face-t-face, rather than have comments misinterpreted on messageboards, but there you go...

Great. glad you're onside.

Really?
[Mishi] I was NEVER 'offside'!

All referee's have heard that before! It's a compliment that you may have made it that far up the pitch! What year was it?

Hi Everyone!


Just an update on the Supporters Team – We are up and running! There have been two games so far and we understand that not everyone has had a lot of notice for the games.For that we are sorry and the first thing we have done to address that is started using an app called Spond. Here’s the link to join the team:

Spond


You don’t have to download the app as it will also send an email invite to games to everyone on the old list. If you’d rather use SMS you can do that too.


Also, as it’s been so long since we all played together and there are so many new faces – we will be playing some games between the games against other teams.


The first of these will be this Sunday 7th at 11am – Location will be determined by numbers. An invite will be sent out this afternoon.


The next proper game will be 20th October. More info on this will follow on spond/email.

We've also sent a link to this thread out to all members of the team's mailing list, but this won't be an 'official channel' - if you want to play the games, you'll need to join the group above. It's either a little bit of work at your end this one time or a lot of work every week for a few people.

Any questions stick 'em here - i'm sure someone will be able to answer :)
