Woking Town FC, affiliated to the Surrey FA, is the new name for the 2008-9 season combining both Woking Boys and Woking Town Youth FC into one single Club. Teams of boys and girls from Under 6 to 18 age groups can play with this Charter Standard Club and enjoy good coaching, team work and playing in local leagues, predominantly the Surrey Primary League.
Woking Town FC is looking to replace their outgoing Chairman this year as Paul Kempton, a main Committee member for the past 9 years, retires in September.
A very special person needs to take on this challenging unpaid role and can expect about two hours work a week with absolutely no financial reward but incredibly high levels of job satisfaction. Football knowledge may not be as important as vision and determination, according to Club Communications Manager, Charles Kennard.
Woking Town FC, in its original guise as Woking Boys & Girls Club, was first established in 1977 as a youth club. Around 250 members play across the age groups. The Club plays in the grounds of Woking College and is actively seeking a base to call home. The Club has a healthy development fund so the new Chairman will have an excellent platform upon which to base his or her strategy for the development of the Club.
Outgoing Chairman Paul Kempton said ?Woking Town FC is a fine example of how the commitment of local managers, coaches and other volunteers can accomplish so much through sheer enthusiasm and drive. We have our annual awards presentation on 16th May at Woking Leisure Centre starting at 18.30 and we would welcome anyone considering joining us in this challenging role as our guest?. If you would like to contact Paul you can do so by telephone to 01344 872656
