Welcome to season 2021/2022

Firstly, I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year and a belated welcome to our 21/22 season. 
With the last two seasons being what they were and everyone facing challenges never seen before, it’s great to be back, to a fairly normal season. 

For us here at Fleet Town, this new season sees us competing in another new league, our third in four seasons. This brings a welcome break from heavy travel to the south coast on a weekly basis. The Combined Counties League Premier South division brings much closer to home fixtures, with five local derbies in the offering. 

The first half of our season has brought more than its fair share of ups and downs. From having a nice FA Cup run, to the loss of players to long term injuries, frustrations within the club were at times fraught. However, as we have moved through the months, players have stayed, come in or moved on, but the hard work, commitment and resilience has continued from both the team management and players. With team performances on the up and a couple of big wins over the Christmas period, confidence is high and has given everyone at the club renewed vigour for the rest of the season.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our volunteers, fans, committee and sponsors for their continued support of the club, without whom we really wouldn’t be where we are today. With a special mention to Matthew Thorne, who we said goodbye to over the festive period, as he moves northward for a job relocation. 
With the club’s foundations firmly rooted, the committee and myself are now focused and working hard to bring the club closer to the FA’s accreditation status, which will see all sections: Men’s, Ladies, Colts and Girls as a community club. 

So, as we move into 2022, I am excited for things to come and hope that with all your continued support the club will continue to grow.
