Each week at the moment it is a challenge to find information to put in the bulletin so apologies for the lack of reading material.

Like a number of other clubs who find themselves in the position of financial difficulties due to lack of cash flow, we have started to sell season tickets for next season. We have decided that there will be no increase in prices from last season, and we will hold the price at the ‘Early Bird’ price from last season (£185 Adult, £110 Concession, £ 25 Teenager) throughout.

Season tickets can be purchased by clicking here.

We have received notification from East and North Hertfordshire Hospitals’ Charity for our donation of £279 from our first 50/50 online draw as follows:

”Thank you to the fantastic team at @HitchinTownFC for their generous donation from their draw. Every penny and pound will help us support #NHS staff and patients during this difficult time”.

We will be starting another 50/50 online draw shortly.

This week we posted an update on our joint social club manager Steve Kimberley. Thankfully he is now out of hospital but you really should read his story to gain an insight in to how horrendous the Coronavirus really is but how there is also hope. The full story is available here.

Plans have to be made for next season and we have this week agreed a quote from a contractor to carry out the end of season pitch renovations. Let us hope we will be able to take advantage of this work as soon as possible with football returning to Top Field.

Speaking with Mark this week I mentioned I was struggling for material and suggested that we do a series of articles on Mark himself, he is after all a true Hitchin legend.

He has agreed to do this and the first article will be in next week’s bulletin. Indeed we were going to start this week but I have got his creative juices flowing and he wanted more time to prepare. The first part of the series will cover his very early career from schoolboy days to when he first joined Hitchin Town. Future instalments will cover his playing career at Hitchin with special mention of some of his team mates before moving on to his managerial career.

There will be the fifth instalment of excerpts from the 1928 minute book put online over the next few days.

Keep safe.
