ADE AND SKIPPER CALLUM EXPECTED TO RETURN FOR CUP TIE

Invicta are confident that both Ade Yusuff and captain Callum Davies will be in their line-up for Saturday’s Emirates FA Cup Fourth Qualifying Round tie against Slough Town at Arbour Park.

Centre back Davies (pictured) was sorely missed last weekend when he was attending his brother’s wedding while eight-goal leading scorer Yusuff will have benefitted from a further week’s rest of his hamstring problem.

Ian Draycott stepped into the side Yusuff’s place at Met Police and scored within the first five minutes on return from injury but could start on the bench.

Recent signing Ryan Cooper is again cup-tied, having played for Faversham earlier in the competition.

Many Folkestone fans probably watched our former loanee Finn O’Mara’s full debut for Gillingham in their 1-0 home defeat by Portsmouth on Sky at the weekend, and manager Neil Cugley said: “Gills have obviously got some problems, but I thought he did really well.”

After an understandably slight nervy start, the 18-year-old defender, pictured below in action in an earlier Gills game when he went on as sub at Blackburn, soon settled down and grew in confidence after a buccaneering forward run towards the end of the first half.

And it was from Finn’s excellent cross that the deceptively white-bearded Josh Parker headed home soon after the break, only to see his effort harshly ruled out for offside.

O’Mara’s successful spell with Folkestone earned our club several mentions in the pre-match preview and also during commentary.

Invicta boss Cugley added: “Of course we’ve missed him, but there’s very little chance of us getting him back (on loan) a second time. It’s a pity from our point of view, as it was originally intended to be a three-month loan until their change of manager.

Looking

“We’ve been looking around for another defender on loan but that’s difficult at the moment with clubs from the higher levels now coming into the cup themselves. He’s cup-tied from playing in the first couple of rounds for us, of course, but on the evidence of how he’s played in Gillingham’s last few games, I’d be surprised if Peter Taylor doesn’t keep him in their first team squad.

“We’ve made enquiries about another centre back and will be following that up while we’re also talking to a midfielder with good quality non-league experience.

“The board have now agreed that when we’re competing in five competitions we need more than 14 (senior) players so I’m hoping that we’ll we have a couple of new faces in the squad within the next month or so.”

Injury 

Youngsters Euan Sahadow, Ethan Madden and Tom Walmsley may well be in the squad again for Slough but close signing Kwabs Osei has picked up an injury playing for second claim side Cray Valley Paper Mills nearer to his home.

Another pre-season signing, Salvyn Kisitu is still working on his recovery from a hamstring problem away from the club.

Manager Cugley said: “He asked for some time and we’re not paying him at the moment, but I’m speaking to him fairly regularly and when he tells me he’s ready to come back and fight for a place in the side we’ll be only too pleased to see him.

“He’s a nice lad who could even be in the squad this weekend if he feels he’s up for it - though he is more comfortable in a back four rather than when we’re playing with wingbacks as we have been recently.”
