Ray Turner admits that Saturday’s Ryman League Division 1 South derby against Herne Bay ‘means more’ to his Faversham squad than most games.

The rival teams are separated by one place and one point on the edge of the play-off positions but the Town boss says that the links between the clubs make it an even bigger game.

Luke Harvey, Darren Marsden, Jamie Maxted, Dan Lawrence and Toby Ashmore are all former Bay players and Turner (pictured) said: "There are a lot of local connections and a lot of people on both sides know each other. The game certainly means more to some than other games."

He added: "A few of the boys will be excited but I’ll have a word before they go out, I’m sure."

Aaron Lacy and James Peacock return from suspension for Town but substitute keeper Dan Ellis (back) is out.
