I would firstly like to apologise to the Sydenham's Wessex League and all the Clubs and officials who have been effected by our recent inability to field a team. All at Stockbridge are working hard to rectify this situation but as I am sure you can imagine trying to raise a new squad at this time of the season is not an easy task. Barry Andrews has stepped in as an interim manager and has been working tirelessly for the last fortnight but the reality is that we still need to sign at least another 6 players.

If anyone knows of players who would like first team football and are not currently playing we would very much appreciate it if we could be put in contact with them. Stockbridge FC can be contacted either by email to stockbridgefc@hotmail.com or text message to 07917 170 452. Please leave details and we will contact you.

On a brighter note work on our new changing rooms is progressing at a rapid rate and we have had the roof trusses fitted today (see Photo's) and we are well on target for completion by the end of February.

Thank you to everyone who has already been in contact and offered support and to the Officials of the Sydenham's Wessex League who are working to help us through this difficult period.

Long serving Romsey Town player, Ben Andrews, has joined local Division One side, Stockbridge. Tim Brown is also a new face at the Division One side this week, whilst Andrew Burgess re-joins for another season. David Chambers is new at Stockbridge this week, whilst Luke Hoare re-joins the club, having previously played for the Division One side in the 2009-2010 season.

New faces at Tadley Calleva

Adam Alliston is new at Tadley Calleva this week. He is joined at the club by Tammy and Toluwanimi Sotonye, who both also signed for the Division One club this week.

News from Grigg Lane

Brockenhurst's pitch contractors will be back at Grigg Lane on Monday to hopefully finish repairing the pitch in time for Wednesday's Hampshire Senior Cup tie against Division One side, Petersfield Town. The final decision will be made on Monday night. The damage occurred when contractors, who were working on the floodlights, continued using a cherry picker despite it sinking into the pitch. (THANKS TO PETE LYNES). 

The Millers search

Totton and Eling FC are beginning their search for applicants for two exciting positions within the club: a Chairperson and a Treasurer to be tasked with overseeing the footballing club. The restructuring of the club will begin on January 1st Treasurer Andrew Jenvey will be resigning to take up, respectively, the Managing Director and Finance Director roles at Miller Park Ltd., the management company and lease holders of Totton and Eling's Millers Park Ground. Under Holmes' guidance, Miller Park Ltd. will continue to work in their field of expertise and control the commercial side of the facility, including stadium maintenance and hire, leaving the new Chairperson and Treasurer at T&E to focus their attention fully on the footballing aspects of the club. With this in mind, applicants for both positions should have a passion for football, with plenty of relevant experience. Those who are successful would be assisted in their roles by newly appointed Vice Chairman Andy Tipp, who has spent a successful time as Director of Football, and has a vast knowledge of the day-to-day running of the club. Potential applicants should make their interest known by contacting Totton & Eling club secretary Charles Wood via email, at sectottonandeling@btinternet.com.
