On behalf of the Management Committee I (Chris Newbold) have been asked to post the following message:

As many of you will be aware, there has been a question relating to the Club asked by one of our supporters on the Forum and on Social Media on a number of occasions recently.

The question relates to: “rumours that are currently circulating around the club and the town that there is movement and discussions at the current time to move Hitchin Town FC from Top Field to the Priory School”.

In our capacity as the Management Committee of the Club, we feel that this presents us with an opportunity to reaffirm our policy as to how we have, and will continue to communicate future developments to all of you, our supporters, sponsors and stakeholders.

We will not comment on rumours, conjecture or hearsay. Which is why we will ensure that we will keep you posted only with facts as and when they occur, and only then, which has been our policy all the way. We fully recognise the need for transparency and are working hard to ensure that this is reflected in all that we communicate to you in the future. The Club has no “secrets”, but we trust that the large majority of people supporting our Club reasonably appreciate the need for confidentiality, where it would be to its detriment to divulge developments that have not materialised to fact. But again please be assured that as soon as we have any facts or news to present to you, we will do so.

We now consider this matter to be closed.

Finally, we would like to take this opportunity to again thank all of our supporters and sponsors who continue to support the Club through thick and thin, We truly appreciate all you do, and we will do all we can to make it a Club you can be proud of. This will take time, but we hope all of you agree that the development of the Media and Social Media operations have raised our standards to rank amongst the best at our level of football. Our online ticketing operations have raised our standards of match day efficiency and usage increases game by game. These are just a starting point – the future is exciting. Onwards and upwards!

THE HITCHIN TOWN MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE
