Thanks to all our advertisers, sponsors and pitchside advertisers including Mark Wright at Bloxwich Environmental Services, Louise Roberts at Avon, Maggie Palmer at Triple M Dance Academy and Aspray24, Imperial Locks, Croft Architectural, Auction House, Dynatech and Willenhall Rotary Club and The Extracare Charitable Trust.
This season we have consolidated our Club, we are stronger than possibly in the last decade and now have a vision of the future, rather than the past.
We have new volunteers joining us next season in the form of Tracey Clift, & Liam Ruby and a number of others in the pipeline and we also thank Ian Wale and Hughie Moran, Chris Burton and Steve Bagby.
We also welcome Commercial Manager John Luxton who is forming part of our new management structure at Board level and also welcome Russell Eynon at Emco for his swift and excellent work on our IT and Social Media provision.
We celebrate a dramatic improvement in our disciplinary record and that we are beginning to reconnect with the people of Willenhall slowly but surely.
All in all a cracking night, Maggie, Georgie and the girls at Triple M added a really different and fun element to the night with their showcase of Charleston, Burlesque, and Can-Can and it went down REALLY well, we also had Willenhall’s Carnival Queen Natalie Slaney who assisted with presentations.
Thanks as ever to Kalie Kaur at Willenhallaywe.co.uk for her continued support and photography work and for her sneeky work with Lisa Ruby and the beautiful picture presented to us.
I could go on all day really (how annoying) but you all know who you are and you all know what you do player, captain, manager, volunteer, sponsor, advertiser- we are hugely appreciative of your commitment to us and we look to the future with excitement.
Thanks all.”

Future looks bright for Darlaston Town FC as fight for survival taken to House of Commons

Future looks bright for Darlaston Town FC as fight for survival taken to House of Commons by Valerie Vaz MP

THE resurrection of a long-standing football club looks one step closer as thousands of pounds has been raised in its fight for survival.

Darlaston Town FC – which is 139 years old – folded in July due to financial difficulties.

But new life looks set to be breathed into the club as a fund-raising drive by supporters has raised almost £5,000 – the target needed so that they can play again next season.

And the battle was taken to the House of Commons when Valerie Vaz, MP of Walsall South, joined club chairman Neil Chambers to meet with James MacDougal of the Football Association (FA).
