Folkestone Invicta will honour a club legend on Friday night when Liam Friend runs out for his testimonial against Gillingham.
Friend, the Invicta captain, has made 396 appearances for Neil Cugley’s side since graduating from the youth section in 2005.
And a bumper crowd at the Fullicks Stadium for the visit of the Gills would be a fitting way to mark the 26-year-old’s huge contribution to the club.
Cugley said: "He’s been good. Having a testimonial at a young age shows how long he’s been
here. He’s been here since he was 12 or 13 and he’s just got better and better.
"He’s a good lad, I think he’s a really good player, a good captain, a good man in the bar and good socially.
"We’d have missed him (if he left), and I was delighted when he signed again for this year because I want him to be part of this club, to get us into the Premier Division.
"That’s where he wants to be and he can see the club is progressing."
