Sittingbourne (H) - 22nd July 2023

By Josh Cole 

We continue our 2023/24 pre-season campaign as we welcome Sittingbourne to Hartsdown Park on Saturday afternoon with kick-off scheduled for 3pm.

The ‘Gate stunned National League South side Dartford at Hartsdown Park on Tuesday night beating them 2-0 with goals from Phil Roberts (31’) and Ben Greenhalgh (64’) as they bounced back from their defeat at Herne Bay the Friday before. After the game, Manager Reece Prestedge said he was “buzzing” with the victory.

Saturday’s opponents Sittingbourne’s have played four pre-season matches so far with a draw against Chatham Town (2-2), a loss to Ebbsfleet United (1-3), a win against Erith Town (0-2), and a loss to Faversham Town (0-1). Sittingbourne play in the Isthmian South-East division one step below Margate and last season they finished mid-table in 11th place.

The last time the two sides faced was in pre-season last year where the ‘Gate travelled to Woodstock Park and came away with a 2-1 win.

It’s a Big Football Day at Hartsdown Park with the Lionesses’ opening World Cup game being shown live in the Hartsdown Bar from 10am with the match starting at 10:30am. If you wish to stay for the pre-season friendly vs Sittingbourne you MUST purchase a ticket, which you can do by clicking here.

The ‘Gate have signed two new players, Daniel Duncanson and Skye Salmon formerly being trialists through this pre-season campaign so far. We also found out the draw for our defence in the DFDS Kent Senior Cup Final where we will play Hythe Town in Round one, and should we progress will have a home tie against Sittingbourne or Ashford United in Round Two!
