If you like a good read, tomorrow eveningâ€™s matchday programme is a â€˜mustâ€™. Weâ€™ve got a candid interview with Tom Hutchinson, a profile of Gez Sole, plus the return of The Ranter, another delightful â€˜Life Sentenceâ€™ piece and much, much more.
Some of the highlights include:
Pages 7-8 â€“ Tom Barnardo interviews Tom Hutchinson and finds that our talismanic central defender doesnâ€™t mince his words about last season:
â€œKim tried to stamp his authority in a big way... his personality just seemed to be too big for a family club. He came in and wanted to be the centre of attention but there are other people here who have been here for years... and he upset them. It was our start to the season [under Grant] that relegated us.â€�
Pages 12-13 â€“ Tom Barnardo reports on Saturdayâ€™s game at Swindon and concludes that the Cards were unlucky to be knocked out of the Cup.
Page 16 â€“ The Ranter is back and gets his teeth into beach balls and much more.
Page 17 â€“ Tom Barnardo recalls how a stunning display from Gez Sole earned us three valuable points against the Saints in a meeting between the two sides in the Conference National.
Page 21 â€“ Lewis Hulatt profiles Gez Sole and finds that he too looks back unhappily on last season:
â€œGez felt that Phil hadnâ€™t really been interested in him as a player and, as the decision was made, Gez got on with playing, ending his lean spell and causing a furore amongst Woking fans who felt sick as parrots to see the name Sole on the score-sheet for another club when the remaining Woking players appeared to think that the â€˜netâ€™ was just pay after tax.!â€�
Pages 24-25 â€“ Double-page photo of Gez with space for an autograph.
Page 32 â€“ Neil Bennett continues his beautifully-crafted Life Sentence series and confesses that there is a bit of him that hasnâ€™t really grown up:
â€œStill, at an age when I should simply and unarguably know better, Woking intrude upon my everyday troubles with all the appeal of being stranded on a lonely training course canteen table with a man called Keith from Norwich whose violent body odour and nasal-toned monologue about restoring his 1950s American pick-up truck leaves you crushed and watery-eyed.â€�
Page 36 â€“ Alan Worth, in his occasional â€˜How others see usâ€™ series, highlights some national â€“ and even international! â€“ coverage of the exploits of Woking FC.
And, of course, the rest of the programme is packed full with all the usual reports, previews, statistics and great photos.
