Woking v Lingfield
Surrey Senior Cup 1st Round
7.45pm on Monday 14 October 2013
The Cards begin this seasonâ€™s Surrey Senior Cup campaign tomorrow (Monday) evening with a home tie against Lingfield. Reduced admission prices apply and kids under 16 will be admitted free.
Garry will presumably want to rest his regular first-teamers for this game and give an outing to those squad members (such as George Frith, Gez Sole and Mike Cestor) whoâ€™ve not played much in recent games and to youth team players.
Lingfield play in the Sussex County League Division One â€“ yes, I know this is the Surrey Senior Cup! â€“ where they currently sit in 4th place, with 21 points from 11 games, having won six, drawn three and lost two, scoring 26 goals and conceding 18. Yesterday they beat Chichester City 2-1 at home, with goals from Joel Oâ€™Hara and Harry Sintim. They have two very well-known former professional players on their books: Nicky Forster and Jamie Lawrence. Forster, now 40, made over 700 League appearances, including for Brighton and Hove Albion, before becoming Doverâ€™s manager, whilst Lawrence, now 43, was a Bradford City â€˜legendâ€™ who also won over 20 caps for Jamaica. The squad includes an ex-Card in the shape of midfielder Gareth Graham. Craig Pitterson is top scorer with 10 goals so far.
SURREY SENIOR CUP
If the Cards beat Lingfield they will be at home to Walton Casuals, currently top of the Ryman League Division One South, in the 2nd Round.
Last season Woking were knocked out on penalties by Godalming Town at the Quarter-Final stage of this competition.

The Cardsâ€™ next home league game will be a testing encounter against high-flying Grimsby Town on Saturday 2 November.
Come on, you Cards!
