The club's new home at Gunters Lane will see the Blues first team back playing permanently in Sidley for the first time in just under 10 years since the loss of their former home at The Gullivers. This will bring an added boost to the community seeing the return of their team.

The club wishes to thank Bexhill College who have given us this opportunity to be back where we belong. We look forward to working alongside them and Bexhill Rovers FC, who will share the pitch, for the upcoming season. The club would also like to pay particular thanks to The Heart of Sidley for their ongoing backing and financial support which has helped the club successfully resume playing in the town.
