Faversham Town striker Liam King returns ahead of big week in Bostik South

By Steve Tervet

Liam King is back from an international break to give Faversham Town a boost ahead of two big games in the next few days.

The young striker has been in Mexico for his mum’s wedding but will be back in the Lilywhites squad for the visit of Horsham on Saturday.

Faversham have won their last two and another three points could see them climb as many as five places so King’s return is timely.

Faversham boss Ray Turner said: “It’s a very big week for us. Our problems have been well-documented but we hope we’re going the other way now in terms of a bit of form.

“Horsham are in a group of teams within touching distance of us and these kind of games become important.

“They give you an obvious chance of climbing the table and a win on Saturday starts putting you in touch with the middle group.

“You’ve got to break it down now. It’s a similar situation to last year but it’s come a little bit earlier. We almost climbed our way back in last year but we’ve got more time now and the first thing to do is catch the group in the middle of the table.

“A win on Saturday takes us into the Sittingbourne game on the back of three wins and you then get the chance of closing the gap against one of the teams that’s right up there.”

Faversham face the Brickies at Woodstock Park on Tuesday aiming to complete a league double over their local rivals.

But that was second-placed Bourne’s only league defeat so far this season following an admirable rebuilding job by Nick Davis over the summer.

Turner said: “Sometimes you get forced to change quite a few players and they’ve obviously got a player we know well in Bola Dawodu. He’s done particularly well for them and they’ve signed some good players.

“The likes of Laurence Ball have got a lot of experience higher up. The mix is right at the moment in terms of young players and senior players and it’s been a really good start for them.

“We’ve done well over the years in terms of where we’ve finished in the league and now we’ve got a challenge on our hands. It’s a local derby and we want to close the gap between them and us.”
