Update from the Long Melford Community Sports Trust:

Four years after we started talking about building a new multi-purpose clubhouse at Stoneylands, we're now just two days away from work starting.

The first spade will go into the ground on Monday morning and over the next week there will be some site clearance before part of the old clubhouse is demolished.

The existing bar, club room and dressing rooms will stay until the new clubhouse is complete, ensuring Long Melford FC can operate as normal when the 2020-21 season kicks off.

  • For updates as the construction progresses over the next several months, like and follow the Long Melford Community Sports Trust Facebook page [click here]

SEASON OVER  (March 26)

It won't be a surprise to hear the 2019/20 Thurlow Nunn League football season is now officially over.

The season is declared null and void. There is no promotion or relegation, all results have been expunged as if the season never happened.

It's disappointing for everyone concerned after 8 months of effort on and off the pitch, but these are exceptional circumstances and football is not important at the moment.

Although the results will be removed, we won't be deleting this season's appearances/goals from overall player records.

QUIZ NIGHT   (March 19)

For obvious reasons the Quiz Night on 4th April has been postponed.

New date TBC when things are back to normal in the hopefully not too distant future.


SUFFOLK FA have issued the following statement as of 5.30pm on Monday, March 16th: 

 “Following this evening’s announcement from government advising against all non-essential travel and social contact, we advise all football-related activity in Suffolk be suspended until further notice.

This includes all face-to-face training, matches, hearings, courses and meetings of any kind, with immediate effect where possible.

Suffolk FA staff will continue to be available via the main office number and emails.

Further updates will be communicated in line with government advice.

We continue to wish the Suffolk football community well and urge everyone to continue to adhere to the latest public health advice.

To clarify that is all of our 1st Team, Reserves and Under 18 matches postponed until 3rd April at the earliest.

All the information about how to donate an Easter egg can be found on the Suffolk Free Press website (click here)


Last night's result was Long Melford Reserves 1 Woodbridge Town Reserves 3 (Richard Daniels the scorer for Melford).


Much improved weather over the last couple of days has given the pitch a chance to recover from Friday/Saturday's rain.

Tomorrow looks another dry day, so the Reserves home match against Woodbridge Town should go ahead, 7.45pm kick off tomorrow (Tuesday).

Meanwhile it has been announced that Mildenhall Town Reserves have withdrawn from the league and all of their results expunged.


The new dates for yesterday's postponed matches:

Long Melford v Gorleston (Tuesday 21st April, 7.45pm)

Cornard Utd Res v Long Melford Res (Thursday 2nd April, 7.45pm)

TODAY'S MATCHES  (February 29)

The 1st Team match at home to Gorleston has been postponed after the Stoneylands pitch failed an early morning inspection.

The reserve team match at Cornard United has also been called off.


Both games are in doubt tomorrow. We'll have a decision on the 1st Team home match v Gorleston at around 10.30am.

We'll also receive confirmation in the morning from Cornard as to whether the reserve team game will go ahead.

WELL DONE SUFFOLK  (February 28)

Two of the club's players (Josh Collins and Richard Daniels) are part of the Suffolk Fire & Rescue side that has made it to the English Cup Final.

Josh was on the scoresheet in a 3-1 semi final win against Merseyside yesterday. The Final will be played on Thursday 16th April (venue to be confirmed).

UNDER 18 MATCH OFF  (February 26)

After overnight rain on the Stoneylands pitch and with more wet weather on the way, tomorrow's Under 18 home match against Brantham Athletic has been postponed.  


Good luck to Ashley Sloots who has signed for Cornard United. Ashley started 15 matches this season and overall made 59 appearances for the club, scoring 3 goals. He was part of the First Division title-winning team back in 2015. 

Thank you to Ashley for his efforts in a Melford shirt.


The club's reserve side also picked up a good away point today, drawing 0-0 at title contenders Saffron Walden Town Reserves.

Up against more experienced opposition, the young Melford side battled well to earn a deserved draw. 

The Melford team included three 18 year olds, five 17 year olds and one 16 year old (along with Elliot Walker and Richard Daniels providing the experience) who worked their socks off and deserve credit getting a point.  

Today's line-up: Luca Pinto, Max Williams, Ty Williams, Elliot Walker, Dylan Fothergill, Archie Pether, Richard Daniels, Haaris Khan, Charlie Coy, George Baldwin, Oliver Santry   

MATCH POSTPONED  (February 20)

Unfortunately tonight's Under 18 match away to Halstead Town has been postponed after heavy rain earlier this afternoon.

TONIGHT'S MATCH  (February 20)

Tonight's Under 18s match at Halstead is still on at the time of writing (1pm). However the forecast looks pretty dire over the next 4 or 5 hours so we'll update the website again later if the situation changes.  

THANK YOU  (February 15)

A big thank you to A J SMITH SURFACING CONTRACTORS from us all at Long Melford FC for repairing the road leading into the ground and repairs to large potholes in the club car park.


With Storm Ciara having caused damage to the dressing room roof and more bad weather forecast, Wednesday's reserve team match against Woodbridge has been postponed.

ASHES CEREMONY  (February 10)

Scattering of Ashes at Stoneylands of two former Melford footballers Johnny Ford (gk) and Arthur Kemp centre forward, 8th February 2020:

Upon the arrival of family members from as far away as Chichester and Hay on Wye, a scattering of ashes took place in the back of the net at the Meetings Field end of the ground. In one case signifying the need for John Ford to keep the ball out of the net, whilst his best mate Arthur Kemp of that footballing era 1950/60s did his level best to find the net every game. 

It was a much appreciated informal ceremony and indicated that although LMFC is a a small village club it lives as a happy memory to many of those who have played at Stoneylands. 

It was touching for the Club that the widow of John, Kath Ford (nee Bond) a Melford girl presented the Club with the medals that belonged to her late father Eddie Bond, who enjoyed a interesting footballing career. 

Eddie Bond played for Melford from around 1906 onwards and enjoyed great success, Starting at Melford at the age of sixteen he later captained Suffolk and played for Ipswich Town in the Southern Amateur League, turning out in his early days also for Chelmsford City and for Stowmarket Town against Melford in the Suffolk Senior Cup! 

His parents were opposed to him playing on Saturdays, so he had to pretend at times he was on Linesmen duties and not playing. Medals donated to the Club by Kath, were West Suffolk League Division One winners medal dated 1909/10, a LMFC Border League winners medal dated 1907/8 and finally a LMFC Sudbury Charity Shield winners medal dated 1906/7.

RESERVES UPDATE  (February 06)

On Tuesday night the Reserves travelled to Stowmarket Town. Haaris Khan (pictured) scored for Melford in a 3-1 defeat. 

Mick Garbi looking after the club’s reserve side at the moment was pleased with the performance from a very young side including 8 players in the starting line-up aged 18 or under.

Melford squad v Stowmarket: Max Boulter, Charlie Coy, Richard Daniels, Callum Denson, Haaris Khan, Toby Newman, Archie Pether, Blake Richards, Harry Roberts, Ty Williams, Max Williams  Subs: Jamie Carlstroem, Dylan Fothergill, Elliot Walker

  • There is no reserve team fixture scheduled for the weekend, the next Reserves match will be on Wednesday (12th February) at home to Woodbridge Town (7.45pm ko).


Chairman Alf Woodhouse, Hon Sec Richard Powell and Hon President Richard Kemp attended the funeral of former Hon Secretary and Committee member Paul Hurrell at Cornard Church on Monday January 27th. 

Paul who died at the age of 79 was born and raised in Long Melford and won a scholarship to Sudbury Grammar School. He played football and cricket in his early years. He served as an officer of Long Melford Football Club for two decades following in the footsteps of his father Arthur Hurrell who was involved with LMFC as an official for thirty years or more. 

Lots of things emerged about Paul at the service and afterwards. For instance he twice ran the London Marathon. He was an avid book reader and a gleaner of knowledge. A great fan of the quiz world, he appeared twice on 15 to 1 the TV quiz programme and ended up in the last three each time. 

He was a devoted husband to the late Angie (Marshall) who too had a penchant for quizzes, and they were a formidable pair at any LMFC quiz night! 

Afterwards at the Five Bells it was catch-up time for lots of veterans who had donned the Melford shirt, in yesteryear. One such person was actor Rocky Marshall stepson of Paul, who started playing for Melford at the age of 16, and now enjoys a successful acting career with over twenty films and TV shows in his credits. To name a few Star Wars, Mean Machine, Emmerdale and Mr Selfridge. 

The music in the Church featured Bob Dylan, indicating the love of music Paul enjoyed, although to the writer of this article his teenage memories with Paul, went as far as taxi trip weekends to Bildeston, in Chick Howard Taxis, and Paul's voice getting well into Eddy Cochran featuring Summertime Blues and C'mon on Everybody, slightly fuelled of course, all the way back from Bildeston to Long Melford. R.I.P.  Paul     


WELL DONE JOSH  (January 24)

Well done to Josh Collins who played for the England Fire & Rescue Service side yesterday.

The match ended in a 7-0 win for England against the Wales Fire & Rescue Service team.

Josh is pictured here with Phil Weavers (of Mildenhall Town) a team-mate of Josh's in the Suffolk Fire & Rescue side who was also called up to the England squad.


The Ashes of two ex Melford footballers, John Ford and Arthur Kemp, will be scattered at the ground on February 8th at 12 noon, prior to the match at 3pm against Walsham-le-Willows.

This is an open ceremony, very informal so any supporters, friends are invited by the respective families.


A message from Richard Kemp the club's President:

"From everyone at Long Melford Football Club a wish for you all to enjoy a Healthy, Prosperous and Peaceful New Year. 

We are still in urgent need of some “fresh"  help at the Club. Nothing too complicated. We need helpers to prepare prior to matches, marking out the pitch lines, cleaning out dressing rooms, pumping up footballs, toilet cleaning, general minor repairs to fences, decorating jobs etc.

Any help would be very appreciated, needless to say a Club like Long Melford relies upon UNPAID VOLUNTEERS, although entry free of charge to matches could be a small reward! 

We also need to have backup persons for bar duties when the present staff are unable to attend, there is a small remuneration for that duty. 

PLEASE do not just read and think about it, even an hour a week volunteering would be greatly appreciated. 

Please make contact with the Club Chairman Alf Woodhouse 01787 372966 or the Club Hon. President Richard Kemp 01787 378149. Thank you."

RESERVES OFF  (January 06)

Tomorrow night's reserve team fixture away to Stowmarket Town has been postponed (waterlogged pitch).

OUR CONDOLENCES  (December 31)

It's been a month of sad news for the club following the passing of three former players Arthur Kemp, John Ford and John Abbott. 

Sadly we also have to announce the death of Paul Hurrell who served for many years at LMFC as Hon Secretary and Committee Member. 

In his younger days he also played for Melford Reserves. He also played the odd game of cricket for LMCC. 

His father Arthur Hurrell was for many years a bastion of the Club in the 1950s serving for a long period as Hon Secretary. 

Details of funeral are to be announced after a post mortem has been held.

MERRY CHRISTMAS  (December 25)

We would like to wish everyone a Happy Christmas and thank our many sponsors and supporters for backing the Club throughout 2019.

There's no Boxing Day fixture this year, but we hope to see some of you at the home match on Saturday 28th against Newmarket Town (3pm kick off).

JOHN ABBOTT  (December 20)

Regretfully we have another death of a former player to report. John Abbott who played in goal for Margate Town before moving to Long Melford where he played for around two years. He also played cricket for Melford in their early years. He also had involvement with most organisations In Melford. 

John died aged 85 years and leaves a widow Marlene, three daughters, and an array of grandchildren. Our thoughts go out to Marlene and his family and as we say in Suffolk  “another goodun gone”.

The funeral takes place January 10th 2020, 2pm at Holy Trinity Church, Long Melford. 

  • The funeral of another former Long Melford FC player John Ford takes place January 14th 2020 Memorial Service at 2.30pm pm at All Saints Church in  Sudbury.

JOHN FORD  (December 15)

After the loss of Arthur Kemp earlier this month, sadly another former Long Melford footballer passed away yesterday.

John Ford aged 86 who was goalkeeper at Long Melford mainly in the Reserves from 1952 onwards until the early 1960s. 

It is ironic that John was a plumber at Grimwoods with the late Arthur Kemp, and they together plumbed in the existing dressing room at Stoneylands on a voluntary basis.

The other connection was that Arthur was best man at John's wedding to Kathy Bond, a Melford girl and her father Eddie Bond was a Suffolk footballing legend who played much of his life for LMFC and Suffolk.

Heartfelt condolences to John's widow Kath, daughter ,grandchild and great grandchild. Funeral arrangements will follow, also the scattering of ashes at Stoneylands.


A big thank you to STERLING BUILDING LTD for sponsoring Haaris Khan, Anthony Waugh, Mick Garbi and Ross Waugh. 


Arthur Kemp Funeral Arrangements:  The cremation is fixed for Thursday December 19th at 10am Risby Crematorium,  Bury St Edmunds. The Memorial Service will be at Cavendish Church at 2pm the same day.

The wake/refreshments will be tied into the MEMORIAL SERVICE rather than the Cremation. Scattering of ashes at LMFC will again be announced but it could well be the same time as the Memorial Service. That is the current situation. 

No Flowers please but donations to the St Nicholas Hospice c/o H and AW Palmer Ltd Undertakers Little St Mary s Long Melford Suffolk CO10.

The anticipation is  there will be a greater attendance at the Memorial Service, so you are not expected to attend twice if you have problems, time, access etc. 

Whichever event Arthur wanted a bright exit, and he would not have expected the attendees dress to be dreary and dull.  

OUR CONDOLENCES   (December 04)

With sadness the death of a past Long Melford footballer is announced.  Arthur Kemp aged 87 years , who died at home in Cavendish with his family at his side on Wednesday December 4th. 

Arthur spent his whole career playing for Long Melford from the age of 17 years up to 30 years of age, interrupted only by National Service in Germany, where he played for the British Army on the Rhine team.

Most of his career was in the Reserves as an old fashioned centre forward interspersed with periods in the first eleven. 

During his time at the Club, Arthur did the plumbing in the existing dressing rooms together with his best mate John Ford who was a goalkeeper at LMFC, and in latter years Arthur helped with many repairs at Stoneylands.

Like other former players, Sammy Price and Les Elms, it is likely some of his ashes will be scattered over the Stoneylands pitch.

Everybody at Long Melford FC sends their condolences to the Kemp family.

FA YOUTH CUP  (September 06)

Well done to the Under 18s who had an excellent 2-0 win in the FA Youth Cup last night, knocking out Leiston who were clear favourites to win this tie, based on league form. The underdogs against all the odds put in a gutsy and entertaining performance to run out worthy winners. 

Within ten minutes JAMES DORMADY put Melford ahead from ten yards, with the score remaining the same into the second half. 

Leiston were awarded a penalty but found the Melford goalpost rather than the net. Late in the game, JAMES DORMADY robbed a defender, and took the ball round keeper Garnham who was at Melford last season. to make the game safe for The Villagers. An excellent result indeed. 

Mick Garbi's side will be away to Saffron Walden in the next round.

The Reserves' first match of the new season ended in a 3-0 defeat at home to Halstead Town Reserves last night.

It was 0-0 at half time before Halstead took control after the break with goals scored by Jake De'ath (2) and an own goal.

Lots of positives for Melford with a starting 11 that had only three players aged over 17, including five 16 year olds, which all bodes well for the future.

The next reserve team fixture is away to Woodbridge Town on Saturday (24th August).
