SSMFL,D2: Wolverton Town withdraws from South Mids & will only continue with Vets XI

Wolverton Town FC will only be in existence next season 2016-17 with its Veterans Team.
Over the past two seasons, since the social and football clubs split at the end of 2014-15 season, it has been very difficult to get volunteers and sponsorship to keep the club going due to WTFC receiving bad press over an abandoned game in 2014 and the social club was getting its own bad reputation in the local area.

Six people obtained the lease of the Greenleys site from Parks Trust in July 2011 and opened the Wolverton Town Sports and Social Club so that the football club would have its own home base and could also offer other local clubs facilities to play and train at, plus also offer other local community groups a local facility to meet. Unfortunately by mid 2014 only 2 original trustees were remaining and they resigned in November 2014 after it was apparent that the football club was no longer the priority at the site.
In January 2016 the football club found itself without a home after the social club was found to be in breach of the lease and all four teams were consequently spread out at Manor Fields, Wicken and Castlethorpe grounds, the Sunday team was withdrawn at the end of March 2016.
WTFC has therefore decided that it cannot continue to offer Saturday team football and has withdrawn its teams from the South Midlands league effective the end of the 2015-16 season.

Manor Fields have offered us share of their pitch to end of season and we are nearly there with a ground share for the reserves.

Unfortunately we have been unable to find a local pitch for this Saturdays first team game vs AFC Hillgate so it will have to be reversed to their pitch.

The committee would like to thank Grendon Rangers and Aston Clinton for their help over the last couple of weeks.

SSMFL,D2: Grendon set to solve Wolverton Town’s ground problem this weekend

Sports Shots understands that Grendon Rangers have offered Wolverton Town their pitch for this weekend’s Spartan South Midlands League, Division 2 clash on Saturday.

The two sides were due to meet at Wolverton Town but after news broke at lunchtime about Town’s 14-day notice to vacate The New Park, Rangers kindly stepped in to offer a solution to their immediate problem.

Since the news broke on Sports Shots at lunchtime the website has been very busy with just seven hits short of 14k hits by 6pm. Clearly showing, yet again, the large interest in local football in the area.
