OUR CONDOLENCES   (October 08)

The death has been announced of Dick Howe of Lavenham, once a Bury Town player. Around the start of 1990 Dick Howe managed the successful Under 18s team at Long Melford FC together with Richard Kemp the current Hon President of LMFC. 

The team was very successful playing in the Eastern Junior Alliance, against the likes of the Colchester Youth Team and Chelmsford City. A large number of players went onto to play at a higher level. His son Jamie who played in the Youth team later played for Melford and then went on to Sudbury Town, Sudbury Athletic and Cornard, later returning to Melford to link up with his previous manager Jules Mumford. 

The thoughts of all at LMFC go to the family and we thank them for his time spent at the club. 

The funeral takes Place 11th October, 2pm at Lavenham Church.

The club is pleased to welcome back Sam Bayliss, after a spell at Mulbarton Wanderers.

Sam started in the Under 18s at Long Melford and went on to play 137 first team matches, scoring 17 goals. Manager Jamie Bradbury said today:

“We’re delighted to have Sam back at the club because he’s a top lad and a very good player who will add competition to our attacking areas.” 

“He’s a really good signing for us who will help bolster the squad for what we know is a long, hard season in the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division.”

HASS LEAVES CLUB  (September 28)

After a short spell back at the club, Hassan Ally has taken up an offer to join Whitton United. Hass made 135 appearances for the club over the past three years, scoring 20 goals. Good luck to Hass at his new club.

UNDER 18 DERBY  (September 27)

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.  

NEW HOME SHIRT  (August 28)

The club has switched to a new first team home shirt for 2019/20. The kit is made by Macron and sponsored by Nethergate Brewery (front) and KHA Survey & Design (back).

RESERVES UPDATE  (August 17)

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).
