New Dawn   Message 45629Tue, 23 January 2018 11:58  Go to next message

Does anyone know how many of the new arrivals have or are likely to be signed up on a contract for next season? Am I right in assuming Perry and CJ are committed? Is Killick still at Boro?

I stand corrected. Perry hasn't signed for next season, he will also assess his options at the end of the season.

I despair when a smaller club like Dorking can beat us to sign players like that.

They might be at the same level but they are still a smaller club in terms of history(of both our clubs)and potential.
Presume they have a money man to tempt Dan.

Dorking Wanderers are a reformed side from the old Dorking F.C., ONE OF THE OLDEST CLUBS IN SURREY!, Football in Dorking is far older, with longer history, than ANY Farnborough Club!!

I believe that they have joined with another Dorking Club and returned to the newly refurbished ( by the local council) Meadowbank Stadium, after many years wandering around the area, sharing at various grounds.

The New Ground and revitalised Club has caught the local imagination, and the Club is on the rise once again.

I would imagine that there has been some significant finance brought in, which enables better players to be attracted.

Good luck to them.

Cold Monday night, ridiculously muddy cow-field pitch, lost 1-0. Trophy or FA cup?

Bob, The clubs were separate entities, they haven't really merged, just that Dorking FC folded and Meadowbank was up for development, where as West Humble is a bit out off the way on the A24.

Dorking Wanderers were in Sussex County League Division 3 when I went there in 2010.

I know it is Wikipedia, but this is how the club was formed.

History[edit]

The club was formed in 1999 and initially playing in the Crawley and District Football League.[2] After their first season in the Crawley league they switched to Division Four of the West Sussex League, winning the division at the first attempt.[3] In 200102 the club finished as Division Three runners-up, earning a third consecutive promotion. After winning Division Two in 200304 they were promoted to Division One, and a third-place finish in Division One in 200505 saw them promoted to the Premier Division.[3]

In 200607 Dorking won the West Sussex League's Premier Division, winning the title with a win on the last day of the season.[3] As a result, the club were promoted to Division Three of the Sussex County League.[4] They went on to win Division Three in 201011, earning promotion to Division Two. A third-place finish in Division Two the following season was enough to see them promoted to Division One.[4] However, the league initially denied them entry to the division as their ground was not deemed to meet the requirements.[5] However the club appealed against this decision to the Football Association, who overruled the decision after an independent ground grading visit confirmed that the ground reached the necessary standards for Division One football.[6] Although the team initially struggled in Division One, finishing third-from-bottom in 201213, they finished second in 201415, earning promotion to Division One South of the Isthmian League.[4]

In Dorking's first season in the Isthmian League they finished as runners-up in Division Two South, qualifying for the promotion play-offs, going on to lose 21 to Faversham Town in the semi-finals.[4] The following season saw them finish second again; in the play-offs they beat Hastings United on penalties in the semi-final after a 11 draw, and then won again on penalties against Corinthian-Casuals in the final following a 00 draw, earning promotion to the Premier Division.

Reserve team[edit]

In 2015 the club's reserve team were promoted from the Suburban League to the Combined Counties League.[7] However, they left the league at the end of the season as the club were set to groundshare with Dorking during the 201617 season.[8]

Ground[edit]

The club initially played at Big Field Brockham, before moving to the Westhumble Playing Fields on London Road in 2007.[2] The ground had a small seated stand and covered standing on one side of the pitch, with the remainder being uncovered;[9] Floodlights were installed in 2012. In 2017 the club was due to move to Meadowbank, which had previously been home to Dorking F.C. prior to their disbanding.[10] However, in July 2017 it was announced that the relocation to Meadowbank Park would be delayed until November 2017.[11] Dorking had moved to Meadowbank in 1956 and a 200-seat stand was built on one side of the pitch, with a covered standing area built on the other. Another covered standing area was installed behind one goal, with the other end left open.[12] However, they were forced to leave the ground in 2014 after it was shut down for failing to meet health and safety requirements.[13] Prior to Dorking Wanderers moving to the ground, it was upgraded to include a 3G pitch as it was converted to a community sports facility. costing £5m.[14] The Surrey County Football Association will also be moving their headquarters to Meadowbank Park.[14]

My reply Mark, was in reference to the earlier thread about it being a smaller club in terms of history which could be put forward as an argument, but football has been played in Dorking for many years before Farnborough was even thought of.

Wickipedia also says :
Dorking Football Club was a football club based in Dorking, Surrey, England. The club was formed in 1880 and was the oldest senior football club in Surrey until folding in 2017.

So to claim that there is no history is plainly wrong!

Similar claims were made with the Shots. Aldershot Town, then Aldershot F.C. and now Aldershot Town again.

Three different Clubs under the Aldershot banner admittedly, but you can't deny the history of football in the town, why should Dorking be treated so differently?.

To clarify I meant history in terms of winning things, winning leagues, FA Cup runs, making it to the Conference etc
Although they've been around for a long time this is the highest level they have ever played at.
