Hungerford Town FC Open Evening Friday 3rd June

After the dramatic victory over Leamington last month which won them promotion to the National League South, Hungerford Town Football are looking to the future with confidence

To capitalise on their success and find the best way forward for the club during the coming season, Hungerford Town FC  are hosting an open evening this Friday, 3rd June at 7.30pm at the Club on Bulpit Lane.  The club would very much like to see some of the 1300 strong crowd who came to support them during their promotion winning match last month to canvass opinion and invite ideas about the best way forward.

To help proceedings along in an enthusiastic fashion, the club will be providing wine and cheese and the bar will be open.

But it is not just the fans who are excited about the future of Hungerford Town.  The town's traders are in a buoyant mood  at the prospect of higher attendance at matches.  Last month's match drew ten times the usual spectators and if they can achieve even half of that, local business will receive a huge boost.

So whether you're a fan or a local business, this is your opportunity to put forward your ideas about how you can help the club cope with the huge increase in demand and expectations both on and off the field.
