Another good training session at the Hood with 40+ attending. Thanks to Clappers, iain and Nile for organising the workout and our new fitness trainer Vuyo Saunders for torturing the lads. But its all for their own good with the season starting in September and pre season friendlies starting this weekend. At the Club’s AGM held after the session all the resolutions were passed so Clubs fees stay the same for next season.


Great fun at Merton’s golf day. Thanks to Toddy for organising it all. Winners on the day were Gareth and Jimbo with an outrageous 50 pts better ball score with Gareth getting six points on one par five with an albatross holing his second shot. Sherbs won the singles prize with 38 pts and Chris Rayner nearest the pin and Pat Papanastasiou the longest drive. Great day with the footy season about to kick off.


Yesterday saw the start of our pre season friendlies with the customary Matches against the Bank of England. The 1s/2s managed a 2-0 win (josh and George) but the 3s/4s lost 2-1 (Dave Golding Pen.) Pics show the usual suspects downing penalty pints in our post match ritual but also showcase our excellent blue change strip with our legendary pink socks!! Good results against a very strong club but even better news we have just taken delivery of a new supply of pink tape. All set fair for the season!!!


Great turnout at training tonight! 40-odd in attendance and a good mix of old faces and new. Roll on next week!

Football Fit in Sutton and Morden 

This is a new venture and so a chance to start at the beginning of something I hope to grow. Just because you’ve let yourself go a bit don’t let that trick you into thinking you can’t be better.

A group personal training session you can really enjoy !


So the result is in……Having been 4-0 down at the break, a solid second half performance wasn’t enough against a very good Polish side who won the game 6-3. Goal scorers were Andy Bitmead (2) and Darren Avey with a penalty (videos to follow). Dick of the Day goes to Luke Newman. Turns out that getting tanked up the day of the game wasn’t the best idea! Man of the Match was the keeper kindly donated to us by the opposition. Merton Man of the Match was John Katandika after a solid defensive display even though Merton Conceded 6. We couldn’t have played against a nicer bunch off lads. Kept it clean yet competitive. A massive shout out to the referee too. Kept it fair and professional. Time to head off back to the hotel to get ready before heading back for a night out in Gdańsk. 🇵🇱🐗⚽️🍺

A note from Max Herbert
Thank you very much for all your kind words and good wishes on my recent retirement. The last twelve months have been a very challenging time but my treatment has finished and I am trying to build up my strength. The friendship and support from the members of the club is a great help and I look forward to seeing you all down the Hood in the not too distant future.
Best Wishes Max

Note from chairman Max Herbert

It is Merton’s AGM on Wednesday and I am standing down as chairman and not standing for the committee and this is after more than twenty years of involvement. Unfortunately I haven’t been at the club much this last season. In September 2019 I was diagnosed with cancer of the oesophagus and I handed my duties over to Simon (Clappers). He has done a terrific job of managing the club and I am very grateful to him and the members that have helped him in what has been such a difficult time.
Since my diagnosis I have had two series of weapons grade chemo, one before and one after the major surgery to remove the tumour and my oesophagus. The treatment has necessarily been brutal but has all gone to plan. The surgery is life changing and recovery has been frustratingly slow and it may be another 12 months before I will achieve anything like normality. I need to devote all my energies to my recovery.
So after more than 21 years I am handing over to the very competent management team that will be taking the club forward, led by Clappers. Merton is a terrific football club because of its members and that is one of the main reasons I have enjoyed my involvement and am grateful for the support, help and friendship I have received from Clappers, Len, Toddy, Mustard, Lofty, Sherbs and too many others to mention. I hope to come down to the Hood and support the boys in the future but that probably won’t be until next year. I wish you all the best of fortune for a successful season and with its strong membership and leadership I am confident that Merton will continue to flourish on and off the field. Max
