By Jacob Greenwood 

It has been confirmed that fans will be permitted to watch Woking Academy games from this week.

The academy side’s fixtures take place on Wednesday’s at Westfield, which is directly opposite Kingfield, and the U23 & U18 fixtures are fulfilled in Knaphill on Thursday’s. 

Dent confirmed to CardsCast that measures are in place to comply with Covid restrictions, such as putting entry money into buckets to avoid the exchange of cash. The fixture lists are expected on the club’s official website soon.

Woking’s Academy team recently fulfilled a pre-season fixture against a strong XI from Southern League Premier Division South outfit Farnborough. Dent was delighted that the young side prevailed and that fans got a glimpse of the next generation. He told CardsCast: 

“To have 200 fans at the game was unbelievable for the team and I think it was probably why we won the match.

“To go and beat a step 3 club was fantastic and the more fans we can get to watch us the better.”
