Canterbury reveal new home for next season


Canterbury City have announced that their home ground for the 2022/23 season will be Sittingbourne FC’s Woodstock Park.

City, who have spent the past few years sharing with Faversham Town, revealed the news with this statement on the club website;

“The club have today an agreement that will see them play their home fixtures at Sittingbourne Town FC for the 2022/23 season.

“Since our current hosts Faversham Town FC informed us that they did not want to renew our agreement, we have had to work hard to source a new venue.

“Once we started to discuss options with Sittingbourne FC, we felt they were genuine and wanted to help us after what has been a difficult season. For that, we would like to thank all at Sittingbourne FC for their hard work in being able to make this agreement happen. These things are never easy and requires negotiation on both parts.

“We are hopeful that this will be the final club we require to groundshare with whilst we work hard to get approval for our own hub in our own City. Whilst it is disappointing to have to move slightly further away from Canterbury, this really was the most viable and secure option presented to us.”

Faversham Town have new tenants in place for next season, with Faversham Strike Force moving in at Salters Lane.
