Jolly Boy's Outing

There was talk on the terraces at Dorking of a possible Supporter's Club outing to the coast before the start of the new season. Is this definite or just speculation?

If it’s anything like the end of season awards ceremony we’ll get an update on how it went in a few weeks time!

I always look forward to the choir outing as a 10 year old in the early Fifties to Hastings This was the only time I saw the sea which was a great adventure. I enjoyed these outings and a gentleman of the choir Mr Bush who had a grocery shop on London Road gave each choir boy 2 shillings each. Sorry to go on a bit about it.

Two bob!
Each!
That was extremely generous.
Depending on what you spent it on, that would've bought between a fiver & tenner's worth of things by today's values. A threepenny bit got you a 1st class stamp and an Evening Star, News or Standard to check the football scores would've been 2d. Sweets weren't so cheap though. A bag of bullseyes would've been comparatively far more expensive than a bag of revels or skittles these days.

Great idea with a Jolly Boys' Outing.
Have a Jolly Boys' Outing to Eastbourne or Worthing and you can almost guarantee the first three away games will be Margate, Bognor & Hastings. More likely they'll be in Jan / Feb knowing K's luck.
Maybe 20 years ago, I recall one fan in this division telling me all his lot's seaside trips were between mid-November and late February. I didn't believe him until he showed me the fixtures. He was right. 6 seaside away days that year and his lot got them in a run of 8 away matches in winter. Worryingly, I can't recall who the fan was, never mind which club he followed. Alzheimer's is a terrible thing.
