It’s All About People – Volunteers

Warminster Town Football Club has a long history. Founded in 1878 it is one of the oldest clubs in the area. It has been founded and maintained by an army of volunteers, many of whom have long been forgotten. Today, and in recent times the club has been kept going by many willing helpers and we should all be truly grateful for their work.

Over the past few months there have been changes, we have welcomed a new chairman, David Parry. Thanks must go to Pete Russell, who gave much to keep the club alive and prosper in his role as chairman. 

A list of current roles is on our website and over time any changes will be updated. One thing is sure, there will always be a need for volunteers. Without them, there will not be a football club. 

David Parry, in his role as chairman is looking to build on the community aspect of the club that Pete had done sterling work on. There are many locals who can make use of the clubhouse for private events, charity raising and more. Recent events have produced some amazing results. David says, “I want the Club to win on the field, win off the field, the right way, for us to be proud of our Club and to be proud to be part of the Warminster community”. 

Steve Spratt has taken on the role of secretary, as well as attending to many other duties as necessary. There is a lot of work that goes on behind the scenes and like any organisation there is a pile of paperwork (even if electronic) that needs to be dealt with on a weekly basis. 

Katrina Ellis is busy working as our treasurer and what a job that is! Keeping the finances under control is certainly a time consuming job that requires attention to detail. Katrina is doing an excellent job.

There are many who help, from Steve on the gate, Tony making announcements over the PA, the team manning the bar, the tea hut, the cleaners and maintenance, the list goes on. All of them unsung heroes at the club. 

It would be wonderful to have even more join our band of volunteers to help the club win both on and off the field. There are many roles and you may have some ideas to add even more. One role we should have fulfilled is a club historian. It would be good to collate records from the past and write about what is happening today to keep safe for future generations. Can you help?

To help out at the club please contact Steve Spratt our secretary by email or ask to see him on match day. [email protected]
