Jon Wallis and Lee Browning are the two latest names to be added to Manager Andy Hessenthaler’s Invitational XI in the fundraising match against the supporters’ teams at Crabble on August 8th.
Midfielder/right-back Wallis played 137 games for us, including 12 while on loan from from Hereford United, before leaving in 2011.
Striker Browning appeared in 78 games before joining Tonbridge Angels ahead of the 2010/11 season.
The pair will join former Adam Birchall, Frannie Collin, Matt Carruthers, Nathan Elder, James Strouts, Craig Stone, Craig Cloke, Lee Shearer, Sammy Moore, Connor Essam, and James Rogers in the squad.
The match, which kicks-off at 1pm, will also see Hess and Nicky Southall return to the playing field.
If you are keen to play against them, here’s how to do it.
Two teams of supporters will play – one in the first half before the other plays the second, meaning 22 spots are available for anyone aged 17 and over.
Those interested in playing need to bid on what team they would like to play for, first or second half, and what position they want to play.
Bidding originally started at £50, but due to the overwhelming response we’ve had, the cheapest outfield bid is currently at £70.
Included in that price will be your official match shirt – a replica, regular fit, blue Kappa one – which you will keep.
Goalkeepers will also get an official shirt too.
If anyone would like to be the manager for the supporters’ teams on the day and sit in the dugout etc, they can bid on that too!
In order to submit a bid, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org with your maximum bid amount, shirt size, position you want to play, which half, and the best contact number you can be reached on.
If you are outbid, we will contact you.
Don’t delay, bid today and support your club.
