NEW SIGNING  (September 29)

Some more transfer news...

We are pleased to announce the return to the club of Ashley Sloots, a key member of our Championship winning team a few seasons ago.

Ashley has played at a higher level for the likes of AFC Sudbury and Bury Town and is without doubt one of the best defenders at this level.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED   (September 29)

We are looking for a few volunteers...the conifers on the cricket pitch side of the ground have had a trim and we need help in the morning to clear some of the debri left on the pitch.  

WEEKEND FIXTURES   (September 29)

Tomorrow the First Team are away to Fakenham Town in the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division (3pm kick off). The postcode for Clipbush Park is NR21 8SW.

If you're not travelling to Norfolk for the First Team game, your support would as always be much appreciated at Stoneylands where the Reserves host Saffron Walden Town Res. in the Chell Trophy (3pm kick off). 

TRANSFER NEWS  (September 29)

Some transfer news announced last night: midfielder Michael Schofield (pictured) has signed for neighbours Cornard United.

Michael started 7 matches for Melford this season (+ 3 sub appearances).

Good luck to Michael at his new club where he will link up again with Ryan Lines his manager last season at Stanway Rovers Reserves.

WEEKEND FIXTURES  (September 22)

Tomorrow the First Team are at home to Ipswich Wanderers in the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division.

Kick off is at 3pm and admission prices including a programme are £7 or £4 concessions.

If it's your first visit to Stoneylands click here

The Reserves are away to Whitton United Res. which is also a 3pm kick off, in the Thurlow Nunn Reserve League.

RESERVES UPDATE  (September 21)

The Reserves after a disappointing start to the season enjoyed a better week – winning 3-2 against Bury Bowl in the Hospice Cup (scorers Kieron Fisher 2 and James Wyatt) last Thursday. 

This was followed by 2-2 draw at Felixstowe & Walton Utd on Saturday (Josh Collins and Deklyn Roy on the scoresheet) in the League to pick up the team's first point of the season.

On Saturday the Reserves are away to Whitton United, while at Stoneylands the First Team host Ipswich Wanderers.

FC ROMANIA  (September 20)

Much credit to FC Romania who played their sixth FA Cup tie of the season last night and pushed higher league side Hayes & Yeading all the way - losing the replay 2-0 in extra time.

FC Romania were the best footballing side to visit Melford in a long time, they won 2-1 last month and were clapped off the pitch by some of the Melford supporters, which it's fair to say is not a regular occurance at Stoneylands!

HOSPICE CUP  (September 15)

Melford Reserves won their Hospice Cup match 3-2 last night against Bury Bowl. Goals came from Kieron Fisher 2 and James Wyatt.

TODAY'S MATCHES  (August 12)

Not the best of days with a 2-0 home defeat against Thetford for the First Team, who had Josh Collins sent off for retaliation after the Melford youngster received a suspected cracked sternum/rib. [MATCH REPORT]

And the Reserves had a disappointing start to the season with a 6-1 defeat at Halstead Town - Deklyn Roy scored the goal for Melford who had Jack Stoneham sent off after receiving two yellows.

Hopefully a better day all round next Saturday when the First Team are at home to Waltham Forest/FC Romania in the FA Cup and the Reserves visit Wivenhoe Town.

OUR CONDOLENCES   (August 11)

We are very sorry to hear that Zac Smith and Kye Mclean, both aged 18, have passed away after a road accident near Sudbury on Wednesday. 

Several of the current Melford players will have played with or against Zac over the years, as he played Youth football for AFC Sudbury and also Cornard United. Our condolences from us all to the family and friends of Zac and Kye.

RESERVES UPDATE  (August 10)

The Reserves' 2017/18 Thurlow Nunn Reserve League season starts on Saturday away to neighbours Halstead Town (3pm kick off).

The Reserves have a strong squad for the new campaign with 18 players signed on. There's obviously a cross-over at times between the two squads, with some players playing Firsts and Reserves, but to make it easier to read on the website we've named two separate squads (20 in the 1st Team and 18 in the Reserves).
