On Tuesday 3 February, between 9am – 3pm, Guildford City Football Club will once again be manning a stand at the Guildford Farmers’ Market. Watch out for our friendly faces if you are in the town. We’ll have a selection of club merchandise on sale, and more over it will be an opportunity to talk over the old times, good and bad, and also hear about our plans going forward.
Despite continuing match inactivity manager Don Chislett, and his assistants Phil Bowers and Mark Beach, have been hard at work moulding the playing squad ready for the return to action. During the last week in particular three new signings have been made which will compliment the exciting young talent already on board. Don is particularly pleased to have signed the 18 year old Metropolitan Police striker Jack Knight on loan until the end of the season. Despite his young age Knight has featured regularly this year in the Met’s Ryman Premier campaign, and his addition is seen as important in the battle to rise from the foot of the table. Similarly we are pleased to welcome Dan Stewart to the club. Dan is a striker/attacking midfielder who joins City after a brief spell at Ryman League club East Grinstead. Earlier this season he featured prominently for Holmesdale in the Southern Counties East League. Having been out of the game for a month he is working hard at training honing his sharpness. Excitingly Albanian born Florin Ramizi has also joined the squad. A hugely exciting player with the ball at his feet, Florin is a former Kingstonian and Staines Town youth team player, who has been out of the game injured for two years and has since been playing Sunday football.
Guildford City are next at home on Wednesday 4 February, kick-off at 7.45pm, when the visitors are championship chasing Cove. Your support at what will be our first home match since 6 December would be very much appreciated. City will then also be at home on Saturday 11 February when Horley are the visitors to the Spectrum.
