And the question of who will be doing what in the Nyewood Lane management team next season is likely to be on the agenda.

The rally takes place at the Seasons clubhouse at 7.30pm and will see fans ask questions of manager Jack Pearce, general manager Simon Cook and committee member Russ Chandler. Topics likely to be discussed are plans on the pitch for next season, both in terms of playing management and staff, pitch improvements and youth development.

Fans were disappointed with an inconsistent season that left the Rocks out of contention for a play-off spot and eventual promotion.

And there has been speculation as to whether the current management trio of Pearce, Robbie Blake and Jamie Howell will all continue in the same roles for the 2022-23 campaign.

Questions are likely around that, as well as the topic of why this season hasn’t produced the play-off or promotion push that many were hoping for with the team that was put together.

Pearce has been a manager since 2017 and Blake’s head coach since 2018.

Howell – who was manager from 2009 to 2017, for much of that time alongside Darin Killpartrick – returned to the Nyewood Lane dugout a few weeks ago.

A debate over what kind of players the club should try to attract is also likely.

Cook said there has been good interest in the forum.

“We already have around 60 fans who have signed up to take part in the evening and we are delighted that the response has been so good,” he said. “We are looking forward to seeing as many supporters as possible at the fan forum.

“To get an idea of ​​the numbers, we’d like people to email me at [email protected] — but that doesn’t mean they can’t show up at night.

Meanwhile, the Rocks have appealed the third-minute red card shown to defender Harvey Hughes in Saturday’s 2-0 home loss to Bowers and Pitsea. They host Cray Wanderers on Saturday.
