Burghfield FC newsletter.




Newsletter 10 Sep 12


Ladies, Gents

The 2012/13 season is already upon us and we’re looking forward to building on last year’s phenomenal success and pushing the club forward in several new directions.


1. Committee

The committee continues to go from strength to strength, despite the absence of a Chairman. The committee has spread the roles and responsibilities amongst it, however we’re still on the lookout for a replacement for Rob as soon as possible, so if you know of someone or are willing to take on the role yourself then please let myself or any other committee member know.
The workload has been such that we are looking to formally introduce the roles of, membership secretary, venue coordinator and development officer within the club constitution. Mark Williams, Adam Green and Andy Willis have volunteered for the roles, but as with any other committee roles we can have multiple applicants and put it to the vote.


2. The Paddock


As you can see the paddock has benefitted from the variable summer weather and is looking fantastic. The Club is looking to have the paddock ready for winter training after the half term break. As you can see from the photo the fence along the edge is fairly flimsy and to that end in order to keep dog walkers, and deer off.  The club is looking to fence off the area and finance this by selling advertising on the fence panels. We are looking for local firms to purchase advertising space for two 900x600mm sign. There will be a one off cost of £80 for two panels and we have 27 to sell, so if you are self employed or work for a local firm any support you can give would be appreciated as would any labour given for the fence installation. The paddock will be the venue for the majority of winter training and will in all probability feature in next year’s tournament.


3. Facilities

The Club is actively sourcing extra portable lighting rigs so that the new paddock will have suitable lights for winter training, if you know of any plant hire/ construction firms looking to get rid of serviceable light units then please let us know. . There is also a plan in place to put a serviced Portaloo on 9 acres moving to the paddock for the BFC teams and spectators.



4. Sponsorship

With the new look kits, our sponsorship team: Viv Harris and Graham Rutland are keen to get sponsors for every age group. If you know of any local firm that would be willing to help out the club then please contact Viv or Graham for price details



5. Social

There will be a couple of social functions prior to Christmas

a. 27 Oct 12  Halloween Party. This will be open for the U11s and downwards and will be a disco at the CSA

b. TBC  Dec 12 –Christmas Function- Over 18s following in the theme of last years with the hopeful addition of a live band


6 CSA Training

While we are still training at The CSA 9 acres can you ensure only coaches with training equipment, park beside container at 9 acres and training is carried out only on the training pitch and NOT the 11 aside pitch




I think that’s all for now, and good luck to all the teams for the new season..

New Burghfield Website

To coincide with the new kit and also some updates we have now gone for a new look site which will also work better in newer browsers and on smart phones and ipads. The new site has the same links to the age groups and also the teams as well as all the information on Matches, league tables and fixtures as well a linking out to the Social media sites.

This new blogging part has been added to allow us to add information to the site. a blog page will be added soon.

The site also has updates to all the pages linked to by the mobile app so should be a lot quicker and allow you to see more. These will be updated to the correct age groups over the next few weeks and some changes made to improve them.
