Support our lads as they run the London Marathon!

April 22nd 2018

First up is Holmesdale defender James Teodorescu who has completed the course before but is putting his body through the punishment once more.

"Thank you to everyone help me smash my target for the 2016 London marathon! This year we have raised the target and hope to beat it again. Muscular Dystrophy is an incredible charity helping children fight muscle wasting conditions. Any donations will be greatly appreciated by the charity and myself. I will be putting on another charity event very soon so keep an eye out.

Thanks again for supporting a great cause and I will do my best to beat my previous time on the day!"



Next up is Cray Valley PM midfielder Josh James. He will be running in aid of the NSPCC, the only charity fighting to end child abuse in the UK.

"I need to raise £2,200 for this great cause so any donation would be highly appreciated. Thank you!"



Erith & Belvedere striker Arlie Desanges will also be running the London Marathon and is looking for your support to help him raise money for 'Children with Cancer UK'

If you are in a position to help with this worthy cause please donate via the link and cheer Arlie on as he attempts to complete the course.

For more details about the charity please visit their official page here


Jon Foreman is Facilites Manager at Croydon FC and will be running the marathon in aid of the charity 'National Deaf Children's Society'

I have sat in a noisy pub at the end of a table and not been able to hear what people were saying, seeing them laugh, seeing them talk but not being able to join in, it’s easy in these situations to feel left out. Now imagine how children with hearing difficulties feel. They can’t hear their teachers, their friends or their parents. I feel it is so important that at such an early age they feel included and not excluded and this is where the brilliant charity NDCS comes in.

I will be so grateful for you even taking the time to visit my page and for supporting me and my chosen charity for the London 2018 Marathon. I don't normally run marathons, I don't even run for fun, I am just asking you to spend a little bit of your money on a great charity that will make such a difference to these children.

Thank you, thank you, thank you..


Also running are current and former SC Thamesmead players Veejay Miller and Reece Taylor and when we receive more details from them we will highlight their charities and reasons for running in the same way as the rest.

Good Luck to these and indeed everyone taking part on the day. If you are connected to a SCEFL Club and are running the marathon and want to be featured or know someone that is then just send me a message so we can cheer you on next Sunday!

Canterbury City

Please support Canterbury City in their planning application by commenting online at

Canterbury City Football Club could face complete collapse if plans for a new stadium are shown a red card by the city council. That is the fear of club chairman Tim Clark who says the proposed new facilities at Highland Court at Bridge are essential to its survival. The club, which formerly played at Kingsmead Stadium, has led a nomadic existence in recent years, ground-sharing with other east Kent sides.

Jack Lowe, Dave Durell and David Humphries show opposition to the proposals at the consultation into the Highland Farm development

But it hopes a sporting ‘super hub’ at the proposed development - which would provide modern new facilities for both the club and Canterbury Rugby Club - will ensure its long term future. Mr Clark said: “This is our 11th year without our own home. If we don’t get this site, then I can’t see the club surviving.” But the scheme by Quinn Estates, which includes building 175 holiday homes, a business park and leisure and retail units, is in an area of outstanding natural beauty and sparked considerable opposition. The developer has already downscaled the project, which had previously included a retirement village, but it still faces the wrath of the Barham Downs Action Group which is against any development in the AONB. And members made their feelings know at public consultations in Bridge and Bekesbourne at the weekend. But Mr Clark hopes the city council will be supportive when a formal planning application is submitted in May.

Peter Rothwell discusses the development with Huw Evans and Tim Chilvers of Quinn Estates at the consultation

He says it is make or break for the football club which also stands to lose £500,000 if the scheme is rejected.The money was ring-fenced when the club’s old site at Kingsmead was sold for development in 2001. But under the so-called Section 106 agreement with the developer, it has to be used for new football facilities by October next year or given back. “If that happened it would be quite farcical but also tragic,” said Mr Clark.“The club has previously had two abortive attempts to find a new ground but now has a real chance for state-of-art sporting facilities.“Yes, there was clearly some opposition at the public consultations but also some support too.“With other funding, we have £1.6 million to invest but just need the right site which is now being offered to us. It would be a huge boost for the club and Canterbury and allow us to grow and improve.

“We have architects working on the designs for a new clubhouse and it will look amazing.” The club currently grounds shares with Deal and has just signed an arrangement for next season with Faversham. Mr Clark said: “But it can’t go on like that and if we don’t get these new facilities, we don’t have a plan B.” Canterbury City FC were playing in the Kent League when it left Kingsmead, a move which saw the club collapse. Re-born in 2007, it started climbing back up the football pyramid and is now in the Southern Counties East League Premier Division - previously known as the Kent League - playing alongside the likes of neighbouring Whitstable.
