17.05.13: Club to change name to Weysiders Football Club

It was agreed at the Club AGM on 16 May that the Club would change its name to Weysiders Football Club with immediate effect.

The Club started life as Weysiders FC in 1973, and merged with Guildford City Social Club in 1986 to become Guildford City Weysiders FC. Now, with no connection with the Social Club any longer, the decision has been taken to revert to the Club's original name.

03.03.13: A happy tale - thanks to Weysiders

I am delighted to report the happy resolution of a potentially sad tale.

Yesterday early evening I took a phone call from a lady who had lost an expensive and sentimental bracelet at Shalford Park yesterday lunchtime. She was very upset but wondered whether any of our Reserve team might have found it. I emailed them to ask and yes, they had found it! I called the lady this morning and she was overcome with joy at the good news. We reunited her with her bracelet to her absolute delight this afternoon.

Shalford B have dropped out of Division Four South of the Guildford & Woking Alliance League - the division in which our reserves play. Their record has been expunged. Unfortunately, as we had an 11-1 win against them, the loss of those points and that goal difference has - temporarily, at least - knocked us down to seventh place - but we're only three points off third!

26.10.12: Every single team for every single match...

I am undertaking a huge task of entering every single team for every single match the club has ever played (to date, that's 2,407 matches) since September 1974.

I have entered 704 so far, taking us to mid 1989-90 season! There's a long way to go, and I reckon I'll finish by about mid-April 2013.

You can see this information by clicking the team on the left (e.g. 1st Team), then choosing Archives, then the season you want, then either Results or Appearances & Goalscorers. From Results you can pick a match to see our team.

You can also click individual players to see their playing records, and you can click opposition to see our record against them.

I hope you like these new features, which are moving forward all the time. Click around and see what you can see.

11.09.12: New sock and tape law
In their infinite wisdom the football authorities have brought in a new law that will solve most of football's ills. It goes like this:
There is a new law amendment regarding the colour of tape on players socks. The colour of tape has to match the colour of the sock that it is applied to (e.g. blue tape on the blue bits and white tape on the white bits). If this does not happen, then the tape must be removed before the player is allowed to play.
In a League where many Clubs haven't even got fully matching kit, this is a wonderfully helpful new law. You have been warned.
Tape manufacturers Stick & Rip-off were too gleeful to comment.

10.08.12: Social: Beer Festival at GLive on 8 September
There is a beer festival at Glive in Guildford from 6.30pm to 11pm.

Tickets are 12 (or we can get them at 10 each if we book 10 or more places).

If you're a fan of beer (who isn't?) and oompah bands (who isn't?) it's a can't miss event.

For those of you unfamiliar with the joys of a beer festival, imagine supping a fine pint of cloudy ale and stomping your feet to some serious beats.

Plan is to play for or watch the Reserves at home during the day then hit the Stoke for pizza and a bit of beer garden action before heading up to GLive for 6.30.

Kev Barrow need to book tickets in advance for this one so please let him know if you can make it.

06.07.12: Ex-Weysider Rob Hunter dies
I am very sad to report that ex-Weysider Rob Hunter died from an inoperable brain tumour earlier this week.

Rob played 72 games as full-back and scored 14 goals in the early years of the club. His impressive scoring record from the back came by virtue of his excellent penalty-taking technique. We'll remember him fondly.

Our thoughts are with his family at this difficult time.
