Matchday programme on New Year's Day

Brian Caffarey - 30th December 2009

Matchday programme on New Year's Day We’ve put together another packed and very readable holiday matchday programme for the game against Havant and Waterlooville on New Year’s Day. Some highlights are:

Pages 7-8 – Ian Nicholson profiles Woking’s new General Manager, Barry Hitchcock, and finds a man who seems to have rivalled Chairman Shahid Azeem in his passion for sport:

“At school Barry excelled at many sports and a typical weekend could see him playing five times in different disciplines such as rugby, football, hockey, athletics or basketball. Barry left school and East Anglia at 18 and won a place at Loughborough, the specialist sports and teacher training college. At this time his first sport was rugby and he had represented the county as a centre. However, he arrived at Loughborough with a broken arm and so developed interests in a wide range of sports – particularly basketball and athletics (triple jump, hurdling and decathlon).”

Page 17 – Brian Caffarey recalls our only previous Kingfield encounter against the Hawks on the way to our glorious GLS Cup triumph!

Page 20 – Ian Nicholson tells us about the team’s Christmas visits to hospitals, hospice and a home for the elderly. Tony Sinclair makes an old lady very happy with a Christmas kiss!

Page 21 – Lewis Hulatt profiles Moses Ademola (pictured):

“Moses confessed that our young players had “been a bit naïve” when they stayed on their feet, despite the regular tugs and shoves [in the home game against Bath City]. He admitted that the manager had taken the same view but, having worked with young players in the Academy and now the first eleven, Graham Baker was not taken by surprise by their honesty. He is a good gaffer, who gives youngsters a chance and that makes him ‘sound’ in the book of Moses.”

Pages 24-25 – double-page photo of Moses with space for an autograph.

Page 29 – The Ranter returns and finds that referees and the World Cup provide plenty to be splenetic about!

Pages 32-33 – Continuing the World Cup theme, Ben Pennick explains why Scotland are actually football’s World Champions!

Pages 36-37 – KC Kat tells us all about his Christmas and makes some New Year’s resolutions.

Page 42 – Adrian Edwards reflects on the delights – and occasional frustrations – of holiday football.

And, of course, the rest of the programme is packed full with all the usual reports, previews, statistics and more great photos.
