Groundhoppers to visit Tucker Park

On September 22nd 2012 FTFC First Team will be playing Wootton and Dry Sandford in a North Berks League Division One fixture.
The kick off has been arranged for 1.30pm, because FTFC will be hosting the groundhoppers associated with  the NBFL Groundhop on the 22nd September 2012.

Groundhopping is a hobby that involves attending football matches at as many different stadiums or grounds as possible. Participants are known as groundhoppers, hoppers or travellers.
We are expecting approximately 200 groundhoppers after they have attended the match at Coleshill Utd FC. The hoppers will be leaving FTFC for a 4.00pm fixture at Stanford in the Vale, followed by a game at Uffington United, under floodlights.
FTFC are expecting a total crowd of 300 for this game where we will have club memorabilia available to purchase, including badges and our Centenary book.
Admission price for the game will be £4.00 including a programme.


Food will be available at £3.00 per head and our bar will be open from 12.00 pm, which will be showing Swansea City v Everton LIVE on Sky Sports 12.45pm ko. We will be adding 4 guest Real Ales from Arkells to our existing offerings over the bar and a Tombola will be available .

At 6pm we will holding a Music Quiz where we expect all players to attend as the income received from the Quiz will go towards the payment of our training facility at Shrivenham.

This is a great opportunity for the club to generate some much needed income, however it will also mean the club will be visited by many people who have never been to TUCKER PARK before and we can be placed on the football world map!

If you can offer any help on the day, please speak to Simon Harrington, Phill Tyler, Win Morbey, Jan Francis, Julie Watts or Trevor Sears.
