Bostik Supporters Predictions 18/19: Cray Wanderers

Adrian Jewell introduces his magic Wands!

We asked supporters of our Bostik League clubs to preview the new season, reflect on the old and predict the final outcome. Their predicted 1-20 (or 22) will be worked into a final table which you will see just before the big kick off.

Adrian Jewell shows us around Hayes Lane, whilst looking forward- hopefully- to Cray Wanderers not being there for too much longer!

1. What was your favourite moment of last season?

Adrian and family

Adrian and family

It has to be Michael Power equalising goal in the Trophy game at Moneyfields on a cold evening down in Portsmouth. Made the long journey worthwhile.

2. And your worst moment?

Obviously losing in the playoff to Walton Casuals after the players had given us a season to remember, scoring over a hundred goals.

3. How will you do this season?

We have kept the core of last seasons players and added a bit of quality to the team so hopefully we will be in with a shout. In Russell we trust!

4. Which matches are you most looking forward to going to- and why?

Guernsey is always a good trip - something different than your normal away day routine. Also looking forward to the trip to Canvey Island in the Trophy - nothing like a bit of Kent v Essex rivalry.

5. What is your favourite away ground?

Although we haven't played there for a while, for me, Whitstable Town. A lovely part of Kent.

6. Who do you consider your biggest rivals- and why?

Thamesmead Town and Greenwich Borough, purely due to player and manager movement between the clubs. Also with Greenwich Borough we have the battle of the drums and flags, although our flag collection is second to none.

7. What advice would you give to any away supporter visiting you for the first time?

This is a difficult one as we ground share with Bromley. The ground itself is very neat and tidy. The pitch is a 3G surface so match will be guaranteed to go ahead whatever the weather and feel free to sing along with The Wanderer played when the teams come out. As we receive no monies from bar takings please buy a match day programme price £2 or a Golden Goal ticket, price £1 as this is our only additional revenue on match day.

8. Who is your favourite player of all time (for your club)- and why?

For me it has to be Ross Lover. He just made the game look so easy.

9. Who will be in the top five at the end of the season?

Cray Wanderers, Hythe Town, Ashford United, Horsham, Hastings United

Where next?
