Everyone at Whitstable Town Football Club would like to wish all of our volunteers and supporters a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Thank you to our sponsors and advertisers, who this season include the following:
- D&J Tyres
- Exact Construction Ltd
- Manor Developments (Kent) Ltd
- E W Gee Ltd
- Maiford Ltd
- PH Accountancy
- City Awards
- Caldecott Fostering
- Whitstable Labour Club
We also greatly appreciate the support given by a number of others, whose varied contributions are all important to the well-being of the club.
Finally, special thanks go to Cordès Horticultural for once again providing the Christmas tree for the clubhouse at the Belmont Ground.
The next first team game is a Bostik League fixture at the Belmont against Ramsgate on Boxing Day at 3 pm. The draw for our Christmas Raffle will be made in the clubhouse after this game, so there is still time to purchase tickets, with the chance of winning £250 or a number of other nice prizes. There will also be a draw made to select the lucky winners from those who kindly gave money towards the improvements to the main stand, that were completed at the start of this season with the help of a grant from the Premier League, through the Football Stadia Improvement Fund. There will be a small buffet provided in the clubhouse for those that wish to stay.
In other football news, the semi-final draw has been made for the Velocity Trophy and is as follows:
AFC Hornchurch or Whitstable Town v Bracknell Town or Folkestone Invicta
Enfield Town or Burgess Hill Town v Merstham or Bishop’s Stortford
The games are due to be played by the end of January, but of course the quarter finals have to be completed first. As a reminder, Whitstable visit AFC Hornchurch to play theirs on Tuesday 15 January.
