It’s that time again! The new National League South season kicks off this Saturday, and the Rebels will welcome Dorking Wanderers to Arbour Park. We have pulled together some useful information for supporters in advance.
Justin Edinburgh 3 Foundation
We will be holding a bucket collection on Saturday, in aid of the Justin Edinburgh 3 Foundation. Following the tragic and untimely death of Justin Edinburgh, his family set up the Foundation, which will be focusing on raising awareness of brain and heart disease and promoting the use of defibrillators in health clubs and gyms. Thank you in advance for your support.
