Stalwart Guildford football fans will known that February 12, 1974, was the last time a Southern League match was played here. That is until 3pm tomorrow (Saturday, September 1) when the newly promoted Guildford City take on Chalford St Peter at Spectrum in the Southern League Division One Central.

Another goal goes in: Guildford City in action against Thatcham last Saturday. Picture courtesy Guildford City FC.

The club’s vice-chairman, Chris Pegman, says: “Thirty-eight years of ‘blood, sweat and a bucket load of tears’ and we’re back again!”

The team are looking to build on their 3-1 victory last week against Thatcham Town. They also recently beat East Preston 5-3 in an FA Cup preliminary round.

Tomorrow’s match kicks off at 3pm at Spectrum, Parkway, Guildford. Admission is £8, concessions £4, under 16s £1.

    I was at the last match the city played in February 1974 in the Southern League and I am looking forward to the city playing again in this league.

    How far the city can go now depends on the football fans in Guildford, show you want senior football in this town by supporting the team at the Spectrum.

    Winning the Combined Counties League the last two seasons proves we have one of the best Managers and his assistant in non-league football, along with the players. Also there is the hard working committee who have made this club successful.
