In the dugout
Darren Sarll is now in his third season managing Woking after joining in March 2022. During his playing career, Sarll played for likes of Dunstable Town and Hemel Hempstead before getting into management. He coached at Stevenage, Brentford and Rotherham at youth level before getting his first role as a manager in 2016 with Stevenage after the sacking of Teddy Sheringham.
Sarll managed there for two years before being sacked in 2018, he found his feet at newly relegated National League side Yeovil Town. During his time at Yeovil, he won two Manager of the Month awards and led the Glovers to an unsuccessful play-off campaign. Sarll then moved on to Woking in 2022 and has taken the Cards from strength to strength where he took them all the way to their first-ever National League play-off campaign last season. It wasn’t to be as they lost 2-1 to Bromley but he will aim to go one step further this season.
Players to watch
Scott Cuthbert – Defender – The experienced central defender has hit the ground running with the Cards and has impressed in the opening month of the season. The 36-year-old has vast EFL experience playing for the likes of Swindon Town, Leyton Orient, and Stevenage before joining Woking in 2022. With two goals to his name as well already, he has proven to be a threat from set-pieces.
Rhys Browne – Forward - A bit of a journeyman in the National League, Rhys Browne appears to be finding his feet with Woking after signing last season. He played for the likes of Aldershot Town, Yeovil Town, Wealdstone, and Sutton United before joining Woking. The forward had an impressive season last year and his thirteen league goals were crucial to the Cards play-off finish.
Reece Grego-Cox – Forward – The danger man of the team, the former QPR player has scored three in three for the Cards this season and is looking to build on a campaign last season hindered by injury. He’s also played for Newport County and Crawley Town but at 26 has found his feet at Woking and will be aiming to fire the goals to send them to the EFL.
Last time out
It was a day to forget when these two last faced off at Kingfield Stadium with Woking running out comfortable 2-0 winners. Padraig Amond gave Woking the lead in the first half before Luke Wilkinson sealed the game in the second. After that game, Ryan Peters echoed his frustrations at Maidenhead’s lack of chances after zero shots on target.
