As things can get lost in the ever revolving world of social media, we have opened up a mailing list so that you’ll never miss out on important club news for the seniors, ladies and academy, special offers and details of club events throughout the season.
We are travelling to Worthing by coach next Saturday (26th October) for our FA Trophy First Qualifying Round match and have spaces available for any supporters wishing to book come along.
Walton Casuals Football Club were saddened this week to hear of the passing of former player Lionel Williams.
It was a pretty humdrum game here on Tuesday night against Gosport. We started well and our passing was impressive but then faded until coming to life just after the visitors took the lead. That burst from us in the last 15 minutes really had Gosport on the racks for the first time in the evening. Earlier, we’d looked disjointed, lacking shape and though I don’t think I could question our energy, we didn’t have that determination and sheer will to succeed that we had towards the end, when every tackle was won, every opposition player barged out of the way and we chased down absolutely every ball. We also started playing the ball out wide where we really caused problems for the Gosport, particularly with Cheyce’s trickery and Rene was a handful in the closing minutes, with his cheeky gamesmanship, tom-foolery and physical presence.
Following on from our successful Foodbank collection last month, we will be taking clothing donations for Elmbridge Rentstart before the game against Taunton Town on Saturday. This initiative will also be repeated when we welcome Hayes & Yeading on 9th November.

The FA Trophy draw was made this lunchtime and we have been drawn away to Worthing.
The match will be played on Saturday 26th October with a 3pm kick off.
Worthing currently sit 7th in the Isthmian Premier League with six wins and a draw from their ten league games to date.
Possible permutations as a result of the draw include a possible postponement of our game at Blackfield & Langley on the 29th should either side be involved in a replay, and the same with our home game to Hayes & Yeading on 9th November if either side progress to the next round.
Anyone sick and tired of the rain? I certainly am, but looking ahead at the forecast, the only day since the beginning of September and the end of October where precipitation is unlikely to be on the agenda is for our match against Gosport on Tuesday night, so let’s hope for a decent crowd. If you are reading my words of wisdom in the Matchday Programme rather than on social media and you’re sitting in the comfort of our famous blue seats and seeing the Stags faithful behind the goal getting drenched again, then I sincerely apologise – but right now, fingers crossed, it looks like it will be a dry night at the Home of World Football.
