Faversham boss Ray Turner says Town cannot afford any more slip-ups if they are to maintain their Ryman League, Division 1 South play-off hopes.

He believes two away games in the next week at fellow-contenders Folkestone Invicta on Saturday and Leatherhead next Wednesday, are crucial.

Invicta lost 3-0 at leaders Peacehaven on Wednesday night, while second placed Leatherhead beat Ramsgate 4-0.  

Turner said: “The five-point gap between us and Folkestone is manageable but I don’t think we could cope if it gets much bigger than that.

“We are chasing the likes of Folkestone and Hastings because I think the other three clubs have already secured play-off spots already.

“The good thing is that there isn’t much pressure from the clubs behind and we are the only team who can really break in to the top-five.”

Meanwhile Faversham have unveiled plans for the new £2.5m redevelopment of Salters Lane. 

The “Vision for the Future” includes two new stands, new dressing rooms, a sports hall, fitness centre, hospitality suites and a coffee shop.

An impressive brochure has been produced, outlining every detail of what is planned to bring the facilities up to Conference South standard.
