PREVIEW: Sittingbourne v Ramsgate (Alan Turvey Trophy / League Cup)

1 year ago By Sam Perkins

Ramsgate travel to Sittingbourne in the first round of the League Cup on Tuesday evening

Tuesday evening sees the return of the League Cup (The Alan Turvey Trophy) and an away visit to Sittingbourne FC in the first round.

Sittingbourne are well-known to the Rams faithful, but no more so than to current Ram's Managers Jim and Danny Ward who managed the Kent side prior to Whitstable Town.

The Brickies have had a mixed start to the season, and certainly an entertaining one. Their opening two fixtures, Away to Cray Wanderers and Home to Three Bridges, ended 3-3 and 4-4 respectively.

The goals didn't dry out as they conceded 5 in an away FA Cup replay against Hythe Town and put 3 past Greenwich Borough in a 3-1 victory two weeks ago. Although the 5-0 was a heavy loss, it remains their only one this season after recording their third draw on Saturday against Hastings United.

Ramsgate's own promising run of form has dipped slightly after three home games without a win; An FA Cup 1-2 loss to Whyteleafe, a 2-2 draw with Cray Wanderers and on Saturday a 0-2 loss to Walton Casuals, both League fixtures.

However, it was a rewarding August to kick off the season for the Rams as they recorded 6 wins in 7, with notable wins over Molesey and Rochester United and a complete performance at home to Hythe Town running away 3-0 winners.
