The 2017-18 season was ultimately one of disappointment for the club. A good start saw the club go on its best run in the FA Vase in decades, the defeat of higher league opposition in the County Cup and reaching 12th place on the back of a long undefeated run by early November. However defeat in the last minute of the FA Vase 2nd Round to Bridgwater Town marked a significant turning point, not recording a single league win between 8th November and the season’s end. This run led to the resignation of long-serving manager, Paul Tanner. Paul Bonner and then Emmanuelle Boudine were brought in to try and attempt to reverse the club’s fortunes but alas it wasn’t to be. The Town ended the season right at the foot of the table, being relegated back to Division One. The one highlight of the latter half of the season however was the progression to the semi-finals of the Aldershot Invitation Cup, losing to eventual winners, Hartley Wintney.
