17 Feb 20: Club Review by VP Graham Norton

The Committee has agreed to take Vice President Graham Norton's offer of compiling a review of the club. Graham will be interviewing members of the club as he constructs his report on the state of the Maidstone FC and provide recommendations.

05 Feb 20: 1st XV Manager Steps Down

The club wholeheartedly thanks Richard Weston for all of his contributions to the club, as he steps down a 1st XV Manager / Head of Playing.

Richard coached through the Youth section here before taking on the Mustangs Manager role. He transitioned to 1st XV Manager four years ago and has been a linchpin for the 1st XV set-up. After the resignation of Pete Barford, Richard stepped up as Head of Playing to help steady the ship whilst the club searched for a Director of Rugby.

Despite his interest in the role, his hard work and dedication was also being spotted at work as he moved into a more managerial role around Christmas. This meant that he could not look to fulfil the DoR role but has given as much time as he possibly could to the club as it sped up the recruitment process. Now that the new Director of Rugby is in place, Richard can step back and concentrate on his new role at work.

The club thanks Richard for all of his efforts, commitment and support over the years and most recently, during a busy time with his work life. We all hope to see Richard when he has some spare time around the grounds and in the bar!

05 Feb 20: Club Statement: Director of Rugby Appointed


The club is pleased to announce the appointment of Steve Oram as Director of Rugby. Steve has coached all the way through at youth level before becoming the youth manager at Aylesford. He then had stints as a coach at National sides Blackheath & Canterbury with endorsements coming from both Des Diamond & Andy Pratt. 

Steve will begin work with the coaches George Flatman, Dave Charlton & Mustangs Manager Jason Smith straight away as we build for the future. He will be responsible for the senior playing sides and will work with the youth section as we progress all age groups along with the Academy with Mick Walker. 

Throughout the process Steve has been astute with his observations of the team and his vision for the future of the club is in line with the committees. 

On behalf of the club we welcome Steve Oram as Director of Rugby and look forward to the future. 

The club also sends a massive thank you to Richard Weston, for holding the fort as Head of Playing in the interim.

02 May 20: Sponsorship Team Formed

The club is pleased to announce that it has formed a new sponsorship team.

The team will be headed up by club licencee Trevor Marvin, who will coordinate the activities of the team. Bob Hayton is also on board as an advisor whilst they look to continue on his fantastic work.

Further information will follow in due course.

04 Feb 20: VX3 Limited Stock At The Club Shop

It could be the best way to either try some of the gear on, or just see the general look in person before ordering a personalised item online. Alternatively, if you like what you see as is, then why not purchase it there and then to save on the postage fee?
Stock is limited so be sure to check it out.
For the Youth section, please don't forget to contact Julian or Marilyn if you would like to cost polo shirts/social wear or for any playing kit needed for your end of season tour.

30 Jan 20: Harvey Beaton Makes England u20's

Situations Vacant - Perimeter Board Sponsor Sales
posted: August 08 2018


This season’s Sponsorship & Advertising campaign is progressing well but assistance is required to maximise perimeter board sales. The success of the club in being able to generate perimeter board sales in recent seasons has meant that the Sponsorship Manager's role has outgrown what can be achieved and fulfilled by one person and in many respects the sale of perimeter boards is 'treading water' as opposed to increasing sales. As a consequence the club is looking for a volunteer, or team of volunteers to take on the responsibility for perimeter board sales as a standalone role.

The role could be fulfilled by either a single person, or ideally a small team of volunteers. Whilst the period of the upcoming closed season is the busiest period as the club targets funding for the new season and looks to generate sales accordingly; this is also a year round role with no defined deadline for achieving sales. Those interested in what is an extremely rewarding role should be proactive in generating and exploring opportunities and display a degree of dynamism and tenacity in pursuing potential leads.

Volunteers are requested to contact Bob Hayton via the Contacts page of the website

For a full description of the role click here.

Online Physio Appointment Booking
posted: October 03 2018

The club will be launching a new online booking system for the Physio department at the club.

The intention is to help the team plan clinics and also help make sure that everyone can be seen in a timely fashion. The priority on Thursday will go to senior players looking to play games on the Saturday, but the booking system will help make scheduling an appointment easier. The online system will be trialled until Christmas.

A booking link will be added to the club’s website and also to the clubs Facebook players page, for members to book. Please remember that treatments are for paying members and you maybe refused service if you are not paid up.

50% Off Your Playing Membership
posted: June 29 2018

As part of our recruitment drive, the Club is offering a massive 50% discount off of your senior playing membership. All you need to do is recruit a friend to come and play for Maidstone. Once they are a signed up and a fully fledged playing member, the club will discount the last 6 months of your membership.

This season we are eligible again to take part in the RFU Intermediate Trophy, which has the final played at Twickenham. The last time we entered was 2015, where we saw off stiff competition from Diss and Coney Hill to set up the final at Twickenham against Bridgenorth. The rest as they say, is history.

Memories of that day can be found here, and it is something we hope to experience again.

For more information, please speak to Director of Rugby Andy Golding, or Head Coach Mike Hebden.


Club Blazers
posted: July 21 2018

The last batch of club blazers was ordered and delivered over 2 years ago (2013) and there have been expressions of interest in obtaining a blazer from various quarters throughout the past season.  The club is prepared to assemble another order but you should be informed that the minimum order quantity is 20 and the last order took c2 years to assemble.  Therefor if you put your name forward please be aware that this will not be a rapid process.

Members interested in ordering a blazer should forward their names to Bob Hayton and include what size they require; sizing is based on the standard M&S blazer sizes (i.e. 42R, 42L etc) although minor adjustments can be made such as extra or shorter sleeve length

Please note that given that it took c2-years to assemble the order for last batch of blazers this batch is therefore expected to be the last order for the foreseeable future, so if you don't order one, you may well miss the boat!!
