Cards at home again on Saturday

Brian Caffarey - 14th August 2009

Cards at home again on Saturday Woking v Worcester City
3pm on Saturday 15 August 2009

The Cards’ second home game of the season sees our first-ever encounter with Worcester City. The Blues, with Rob Elvins in their side, have lost their first two games and Graham Baker will certainly be looking for three points from this fixture to consolidate his side’s promising start to the season. We’ve seen some exciting football in the matches against Welling and Chelmsford, so come down to Kingfield on Saturday and join in the fun!


Jon Boardman is, apparently, the only player unavailable, as he continues his recovery from his Gilmore groin injury. (Those who would like an encyclopaedic guide to this injury should look up Steve Snelling’s description in the news item on 8 August. But it’s not for the squeamish!) That means that Jerome Maledon is now fit and may even be on the bench on Saturday.

We saw some exhilarating football in the first half on Tuesday against Chelmsford. Graham will want to continue entertaining the Woking faithful but will also want some more discipline off the ball, complaining that the side lost its shape at times, with players ‘doing their own thing’.


The Blues struggled last season, finishing in 16th place after switching back at the beginning of the campaign to the Blue Square South from the North. In fact, they haven’t won a competitive game since 7 March. In their first game this season, at home to Bromley, they took an early lead through Elvins but, according to reports, were then outplayed by Bromley, who had ten men for part of the match, going down 2-1. On Tuesday, they came away empty-handed from Clarence Park after St Albans City put another two past them in what was again viewed as a below-par performance.

Richard Dryden’s side includes a few familiar faces, including imposing central defender Wayne Daniel, whom we saw turning out for Stafford Rangers, which is where last season’s leading scorer, Marco Adaggio, also came from. A close season signing is the vastly experienced striker Martin Butler, who was with Burton Albion last year. Graham Ward, at the back, was previously with Kidderminster Harriers and Cheltenham Town.
