Invicta boss Neil Cugley was understandably a happy chappy last weekend following his team's biggest win of the season so far.

“That rain made the pitch quite lively with the ball skipping about on the surface and that suits the way that we play” he said after Folkestone's thumping 6-2 victory over Merstham at The Fullicks Stadium.

“I was really pleased for the players. We'd driven to Woking and then to Whyteleafe in midweek and then they all got themselves down here for training on Thursday too, and we all know how bad the motorway can be at these days” added the boss.

Saturday's goals came from Ian Draycott, whose hat-trick takes him ever closer to Jimmy Dryden's all-time club goalscoring record while Alfie Paxman scored twice with Kieron McCann at last breaking his personal ‘drought' after four goals in three games at the start of the season had him sitting on top of the Bostik Premier Division goal-charts for a while.

“Draycs looked a lot more like his old self, Kieron's deserved a goal for ages now and Alfie is such a good finisher - it's what we liked about him when we signed him last summer.

“It's getting him in the right positions to score as I said the other week, though we needed him to fill in at left back for a while until Nat Blanks was fit again. He accept that without complaint but it's good to have him back again where he can do some damage, as he did on Saturday.

“It was good that the way the game went allowed us to give Heardy (midfielder Scott Heard) a few minutes at the end and it was good to see him back out there, which I'm sure everyone will agree.”


The former Whitstable star who went from Invicta to Dagenham & Redbridge in the National League before returning to Invicta for personal reasons has been out for almost a year following a crucial ligament problem and made a cameo appearance of around nine or ten minutes on Saturday.

“It's a big operation of course” said Cugley. “We'll be trying to ease him in as we go along, but we were a bit short on Saturday of course and it worked out well to giving that little run-out at the end.”

Fellow midfielder Ronnie Dolan expects to get news of how bad his broken ankle (suffered at Woking) is today, Monday, while striker Johan Ter Horst is waiting for a knee on his knee.

Folkestone should find out tomorrow who their opponents in round four of the league cup are when Bracknell Town take on Felixstowe & Walton in the third round.

“I can't imagine that we'll have to play that game before the new year though” said Cugley, “So it will give us a chance to get a look at whoever wins it.”

Cugs also revealed that a bid to bring former top scorer Joe Taylor back to the Fullicks from Margate where he moved last summer failed to come to fruition last week.

“We did talk to him - Micheal Everitt knows him fairly well and thought it might be a possibility - but it didn't materialise in the end so we move on for now” said Neil.
