Pre Season Schedule

Following the Government’s advice that contact football can begin again from August 1st we have arranged the following fixtures for our sides. in the process of being arranged and the list will be updated. Kick off times are also likely to change in some instances. All games at home unless otherwise stated. Some of the games will be played on one of the back pitches.

Unfortunately, at the moment, we are not able to allow supporters to attend the matches

Sat 1 Aug – HV 1st v HV U23’s
Finished 3-1 to the 1st team. The newly formed U23’s made it very difficult for them though, drawing level after new signing Flo had put the 1st’s in front with a very tidy finish. The 1st’s 2nd goal came from a superb  free kick from another new signing, Sam Merson. Sam also revealed that he has an unbelievable long throw. A tactic that the management will no doubt be looking to put to good use.

Whats happening close season

The enforced closure means that the club cannot go about our normal business but the lockdown has allowed our many volunteers to carry out a huge amount of work, both inside and outside, of the club.

Work parties have been held twice a week since the beginning of April and the numbers of willing helpers has been amazing. 20+ people has been the norm and, whilst we won’t name individuals in case we miss someone, the club is extremely grateful for all the time and effort put in by our committee, supporters and, shock horror, by some of our players.

Inside the club everything that could be painted has been and our very tired looking floor in the main room has, somehow, had new lease of life injected into it and looks great. Our lobby is now “a foyer”, the dressing rooms have had new lighting and ceilings installed, the walls and floors been painted, and the showers have had a much needed deep clean. The customer toilets have been given a much needed tidy up and a number of plumbing issues have been addressed. The boardroom area is currently being attacked with new ceilings, decorating and a bit of re-modelling well underway.

Outside, the grounds have also had an army working on them. The most noticeable change will be the new dugouts which required a lot of concrete being poured. We have managed to reclaim the hard standing around the pitch from the encroaching weeds and the whole area has been cut and strimmed to within an inch of it’s life. The tannoy system has been upgraded and the pitch has been lovingly tended by Brownie and his sidekick Floydie.

Outstanding tasks include the extension and repair of our paved patio area, the creation of a block paved area just outside the boardroom and there are still a number of painting projects but, with the fantastic help we have, I am sure that these will be completed before the new season restarts, whenever that may be.

The Management Team

The committee are pleased to announce that the management team that bought about such major improvement at the end of last season have agreed to continue their works in the 2020 season. Simon Haughney (centre in picture) is to remain as manager of our 1st team, with a future remit to further develop youth football at Rectory Meadow. Simon will retain his management team of Paul Thomas (left) and Leon Soloman (right). Paul will be Simons right hand man in managing the team and Leon will assist with coaching and an active 1st team player, as well as giving his advice on team matters.

As a youngster Simon was a talented football player. He was identified at a young age and was picked up by Crystal Palace, where he spent 6 years before being released. Simon was selected to play for Middlesex County, he went on to captain the team, where he played alongside the likes of Peter Crouch, Stephen Reid and Sam Parkin.

After dropping out of the academy set up Simon spent some time playing Non League football, making appearances for both Yeading and Staines Town under Steve Cordrey, before deciding to concentrate on developing his business.

Outside of football Simon is involved with, well football. In 2000 he established Onside Football Coaching and have an affiliation to Hampton & Richmond Borough FC Academy, coaching all 25 youth teams, working with over 350 members on a weekly basis. Onside also run coaching sessions in schools, numerous afterschool clubs, PPA sessions, multi skills clubs and breakfast clubs.

All of the boys have a very clear vision of how they believe football should be played and are very keen to introduce their methods to our sides. They take over with the team bottom of the league but they are all very confident that they can show rapid improvement in performances, and in turn see us start to climb the table.

Welcome to the Ranch boys.
