Football: Satterley's Verwood visit all too brief for boss Arnold

Bournemouth Echo: VERWOOD BOSS: Adie Arnold VERWOOD BOSS: Adie Arnold

ADIE Arnold admitted it would be “a strange experience” facing former protege Jack Satterley – particularly after trying to coax the striker back to Verwood.

The former Potters front-runner, who left for Bashley over the summer, came through the ranks at Potterne Park and blasted home 15 league goals during his first season in Wessex League’s top flight.

Satterley, whose younger brother Ben now turns out for Verwood, returns to his old stomping ground with Blackfield & Langley tomorrow (7.45), a matter of weeks after turning down the opportunity to rejoin Arnold.

Town’s manager told the Daily Echo: “Jack asked my advice when he was a little bit down with being played out of position at Bashley.

“I would love to have signed him when he came back to the Wessex but could understand why he wanted to go to Blackfield – they are in the top six and we are not.

“It will be strange, but whatever happens, I just hope he will buy me a pint afterwards!”

Striker Carl Foster could make his Potters debut.

Potters: (from) Lynch, Evans, Molyneaux, Joy, Thoroughgood, Kelly, Dancer, B Satterley, Foster, Gajic, Oldring, Lovell, Saxby, Rutten, Dyer, Hill, Murray.

Elsewhere, boss Michael Cuffie has a full complement to choose from when Christchuch host Brockenhurst (7.45).

Priory: (from) Field, Doe, Steer, Donachy, Baker, Head, Smith, Fairbrother, Barnes, Saul, Hiscock, Hanratty, Blackburn, Cullen, Carter, Landers, Way, Salazar, Proudley.

  • Tonight's non-league programme has been decimated by the weather once again. 

Poole Town's home clash with Frome Town, Wimborne Town's match against Yate Town and Hamworthy United's trip to Horndean have all been postponed. 

The only fixture to go ahead is Bashley v Redditch United in the Southern League Premier Division.

Isn't it possible for these local clubs to help out Bashley financially , if Wimborne , Poole and Hamworthy pitches are unplayable why don't one of them rearrange their fixture for Thursday evening at Bash and pay them for the privilege , Bashley would get the rent and the home team would get the gate money

That shower can't even get the floodlights working properly for their own games!
Don't remember Bashed being particularly charitable during their better financial days - now they're more akin to one of those awful residents on Benefits Street with their hand constantly out.

Ringwood Town's scheduled trip to Amesbury on Wednesday evening postponed 24 hours in advance. *Weather not been kind to RTFC with dug out area, rebuilt during the summer of 2013, badly damaged during storms. Hoping for some respite to carry out some repairs. 18 of 32 League fixtures completed so far.

Easier said than done. Opposition teams can't always make it on a thursday. Bashley may not want extra games being played on their pitch because of wear and tear. And with the paucity of home games all teams have had lately gate fees would be welcome so people may not want to give it up. But it might be an option
