The season's aim is only half done, says Lydd Town coach Liam Smith

Wednesday 24th December 2014
LYDD TOWN will play their first game under their newly-erected floodlights when Bearsted visit The Lindsey Field on Saturday.

The club sit proudly at the top of the tree at Christmas, having collected fourteen wins, one defeat and two draws in the Pain & Glory Sports Kent Invicta League.

Dave Smith’s side are four points clear of last season’s champions, Hollands & Blair, although the Gillingham-based outfit have a game in hand.

Bearsted are the visitors for their historic game and the Bears sit in fifth-place in the table, having won eight, drawn three and lost three of their league outings this season.

Lydd Town go into the game having come away from out-of-sorts Eltham Palace with a 2-1 win in the league last Saturday.

Coach Liam Smith said: “Last week we beat Eltham Palace away on a very difficult surface.  We played some really good stuff considering the surface.

“We’re top at Christmas but under no illusions. The season’s aim is only half done.

“This Saturday we have a historic game at home to Bearsted under our new floodlights. It’s a very proud moment for all involved with the football club.

“Bearsted beat us at their place and will be looking to do the same to ruin the party at our place.

“Ryan Smith, our captain, starts a two-match ban from Saturday, which is a huge miss but we have Gary Lockyer back, who as everyone knows can score goals at non-league level.”
