We’ve got another excellent matchday programme lined up for you this Saturday.

Some of the highlights include:

Pages 7-9 – With the achievements of the Club’s young players prominent in recent weeks, Brian Caffarey profiles one of the key figures behind the Academy’s success, Dennis North:

“What I found shocking was Dennis’s account of the lack of interest shown by recent managers in the Academy. Dennis was guarded in his comments but couldn’t hide the frustration – shared by many Woking fans – at the way in which, last season, Academy players had been discarded or overlooked in favour of poor quality imports.�

Page 9 – Tom Barnardo reminds us of a game almost 20 years ago to the day when Geoff Chapple’s Cards notched up a highly significant victory despite a striker not even making it to the ground!

Page 13 – The Ranter returns and ventures into dangerous ‘plucky minnows’ territory!

“Cor blimey, guvnor! Beat the plucky minnows from Hythe cup in their cup-final and now Woking are going up the tinpot league to recover our rightful place. On loan to the Blue Square South we are and will be promoted by Christmas, guaranteed. FACT.�

Page 21 – Lewis Hulatt profiles the increasingly influential Sam Sloma:

“In the mould of their manager, Graham Baker, Sam says that the squad at Woking is relatively inexperienced, young and massively enthusiastic. Despite its being Graham’s first full season in charge and the team’s first season in the division, there is an enthusiasm which Sam hopes will get them promotion.

‘We are not here for the money – Woking is a big club and we want to be part of a success story. It’s what I want to help deliver.’ �


Pages 24=25 – Double-page photo of Sam with space for an autograph

Page 32 – Neil Bennett continues his beautifully-written, wry musings on life and Woking and finds that there are quite a few things he’s beginning to like about our present side:

“I'm liking this year. I'm approving of Mark Ricketts's exceptional dependability, Harry Arter's edgy creativity, Ricky Anane's ceaseless bustle down the right, Delano Sam-Yorke's increasingly likeable impression of an awkwardly-sized item of sharp-edged furniture being manoeuvred very fast and very aggressively…�

Page 33 – Dennis North brings us up to date with all the action at reserve and Academy level

Pages 36-37 – KC Kat gets in on the Cup action too with his FA Cup trivia.

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