Sheri has decided to retire from football in order to spend more time with his family. A big thanks to Sheri from everyone connected to the club and best wishes for the future.

02 June 2018 - New Goalkeeper Coach

The club can now announce that it has secured the services of Gary Hammond as the new goalkeeping coach.

Gary has recently retired from playing, most recently with SIL side East Bergholt. In the past he has played for a host of local sides including Ipswich Wanderers and Stowmarket Town.

There will be some fans reading this who know that Gary was part of the Walton United team that won the Senior Cup prior to that club’s amalgamation with Felixstowe. We extend a warm welcome to someone who will also be a very good coach and mentor to our young keepers. 

01 June 2018 - More Player Comings and Goings

You may have already heard that the club has now bid a fond farewell to Danny Crump after his loyal service to the club. Since Danny’s departure three other players have also left the club having been released.

We now say goodbye to Callum Bennett, Regan Pelling and Nick Ingram. It goes without saying that we would like to thank all four players for their commitment to the cause and wish them all the very best in the future.

Promotion and the Summer break would always bring about change both on and off the pitch. Jack Spurling, as you already know, has left Ipswich Wanderers to join The Seasiders and the following players have all been retained: Joe Francis, Stuart Boardley, Rhys Barber, Josh Kerridge, Jamal Wiggins, Stuart Ainsley, Dan Davis and Jordan Matthews.

27 May 2018 - Jack Spurling Joins; Fond Farewell To Danny Crump

Felixstowe And Walton are pleased to announce that Jack Spurling has joined the club as First Team goalkeeper, replacing Danny Crump.

Many thanks to Danny, who leaves us having enjoyed three spells at the club, the first dating back to 2006. We are sure that his familiar face around the club and the fans' cries of of 'Crumpy!' will be greatly missed.

Many Seasiders may recall the fine performances that Jack Spurling put in for Ipswich Wanderers against us at Humber Doucy Lane on Boxing Day and at the Goldstar later in the season and, if Jack puts in performances like that for the Seasiders in the coming campaign, we are certain fans will be very happy indeed.

On signing, Jack, who has previously played for Brantham Athletic and Leiston, said: "I'm happy to be at Felixstowe and looking forward to see what the season holds. I have had a good couple of seasons and gained a lot of experience. I'm ready for the job in hand this year and can't wait to get started."
