I dropped into Newport Pagnell Football Club last week to see the latest addition to the touchline.
At the ground, I met with Steve Handley the Club Chairman to view the new hoarding. Steve assured me that it will be in place in time for their scheduled pre-season friendlies against MK Dons on Saturday 7th July and Rushden & Diamonds on Friday, 13th July.
The board looks great and it’s certainly very eye-catching! Being pitch side hopefully will encourage local residents to contact me with any issues or concerns they may have, or perhaps it would serve as great target practice!
The club is gearing up for the new season and is looking for sponsorship from local businesses to help with ground improvements or help with their match day hospitality and will tailor a package to suit any sponsor. The management are also keen to find support with a mini bus for transporting teams to away games. Steve Handley, said “ We want everyone to come and support their local team, it’s a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon, have a drink and hot food and catch all major league matches on the screens in the clubhouse.”
