Tonbridge Angels (H) - 23rd July 2022
By Josh Cole
Margate are entering the latter stages of their pre-season fixtures as they take on Tonbridge Angels on Saturday at Hartsdown Park.
The Blues fell to their first defeat of pre-season, losing 3-1 to Fulham XI but Gate fans and especially Manager Andy Drury felt the score line was unfair after a valiant effort in the second half.
“I could only see us really scoring, I didn’t really fancy them (Fulham) getting their third, and I was a bit disappointed we didn’t get the second to keep us unbeaten again, but we go again Saturday” were the words from Drury regarding his sides’ performance against Fulham on Wednesday.
Tonbridge Angels compete in the National League South. Last season they finished 16th with 11 wins, 12 draws, and 17 losses.
Tonbridge Angels have a new manager going into this campaign, hiring former ‘Gate manager Jay Saunders who is tasked with steering them to a better finish this season.
Saunders left Margate on 9th May 2022 after finishing 8th in the respective league season and guided Margate to their first League Cup Final in 24 years. Former captain Ben Swift, striker Louis Collins, Fyn Rutherford, and Assistant Manager Lloyd Blackman all now reside at the Angels after all being with the ‘Gate last season.

Gates open at 1:30pm with kick-off at 3pm.
