We can now confirm another fixture of our pre-season schedule for the summer of 2023: Hythe Town will visit the Alcaline Stadium on Saturday 29th July (3pm kick off)

Steve Watt’s Cannons went agonisingly close to joining Invicta in the Isthmian Premier Division for next season, losing the South East Division playoff final 1-0 away to Whitehawk last month having finished 5th in the league table and winning the semi-final away to Ramsgate on penalties following a 1-1 draw after extra time.

Hythe last made the trip up the hill to Cheriton Road in the summer of 2021 as we paid tribute to the life on Invicta supporter Harry Lester and unveiled the new scoreboard on the Wilf Armory building. The sides have met twice since then, with Invicta coming out on top on both occasions, a 2-0 win in the Kent Senior Cup final in April 2022 and a 3-0 victory three months later in a pre-season friendly fixture.

Continue to keep your eyes out as our schedule for pre-season is not yet complete and we will confirm additions in the coming days.
