Dorking v Woking
Surrey Senior Cup 2nd Round
7.45pm on Tuesday 26 January 2010
The much-postponed Surrey Senior Cup tie at Dorking has been rescheduled for Tuesday evening. The winners will be at home to Merstham in the next round.
Graham Baker has made it clear previously that he expects to play a young side in this tie, so we can expect to see the likes of Academy players, Matt Pegler, strikers Ola Sogbanmu and Ollie Palmer, Anson Cousins and central defender Aaron Gough but there are plenty of other promising Youth Team players whom Graham can choose from. The first team squad seems likely to be represented by a few players whoâ€™ve not had much time on the pitch recently, including Joe McNerney, Delano Sam-Yorke and perhaps Sam Sloma and Ricky Anane. Jamie Hand remains suspended.
The Chicks were promoted back to the Combined Counties Premier Division at the end of last season but currently linger one place off the bottom, with two wins, seven draws and twelve defeats so far. They have scored 21 league goals and conceded 54. After a long lay-off due to the weather they finally managed a game on Saturday but lost 3-0 at top-of-the-table North Greenford United.
Tony Webb stepped down as First Team Manager due to work commitments a couple of months ago. Dave Argent, formerly Assistant Manager, took over the reins temporarily, only to resign after two games in charge, but the Chicks have recently announced that Peter Augustine has been appointed to the post permanently.
We last met Dorking in the 1993-94 season, winning 3-1 at home in the 1st Round of this competition. Clive Walker scored two goals and Scott Steele netted the third.
Dorking Football Club, Meadowbank, Mill Lane, Dorking, Surrey,
By car: from Kingfield take the A247 and then the A25, turning left at Mill Lane when you reach Dorking.
By train: itâ€™s about a 10-minute walk from any of the three Dorking stations. Mill Lane is signposted from the town centre. The 18.43 from Woking, changing at Guildford onto the 19.10, will get you to Dorking Deepdene at 19.26. But trains back are difficult: look up www.nationalrail.co.uk for details.
The Supportersâ€™ Club is not running a coach to this match.
Come on, you Cards!
