The new month sees our chairman Derek Graham provide an update from our board to keep all of our supporters and partners, helping you keep up to date with the clubs progress. Please get in contact if you have any comments or suggestions.
"First off, a Happy New Year to you all. I hope you managed to stay fit and well over the festive period. A speedy recovery to those who caught the dreaded lurgy!
On the field we had a good couple of weeks. A thrilling 3-3 home draw against one of our local rivals and then a very good 2-0 win away at Paulton. Best wishes go to Maps, who we hope to see back on the pitch as soon as possible. We don’t have the biggest squad in the league, but are fortunate in the quality we do have.
At the risk of repeating myself there are no easy games in this league and looking forward we now have three home games against Cirencester, Bideford and Totton. Cirencester are currently lying second and Totton are as we well know are a class side. These next three games could be decisive for the rest of the season and we need your support.
On the subject of support, what a magnificent attendance for the game against Melksham. Over 1100 at Badgers Hill which made for a great atmosphere. I was particularly pleased to see so many of our Kitmas supporters at the ground. The guys working the turnstiles said how excited they all appeared to be as our guests.
There was also an excellent crowd of nearly 650 at Paulton, and I know we made up a very substantial contribution to that number. Even Paulton commented on how you all got behind the team.
I hope you enjoyed the paper programme we reintroduced for the Melksham game. This is complementary to our digital programe, which contains a lot more information. I am glad to say we sold out and will be carrying on with this initiative until the end of the season. A big thanks to AM Print Copy for putting it all together at pretty short notice.
I look forward to seeing you all on the 15th January for what has the prospect of being another crunch game. But, most important of all stay safe and healthy."
