Sheppey away has always been an away game I’d look forward too because of how impressive the set up and fans are, really looking forward to playing there week in week out.
Will you miss playing on the 3G at St Paul’s Sports Ground?
I know some players are not keen on 3G pitches, but I really enjoyed playing at St Paul’s. However, there’s nothing better than playing on a good grass pitch.

Looking forward to all the games in preseason, I think the Sittingbourne game stands out as I know there’s a bit of a rivalry there.

I played with Harrison briefly at Phoenix.
