New Clubhouse Completed
Amersham Town announced today that they have completed the rebuild of part of their clubhouse. The old part has been replaced by a modern, brick built, section with a paved outside patio and additional facilities.
Chairman Simon Damery explained, “The old wooden extension was originally a classroom which was moved to the club in 1968 and was probably close to one hundred years old. It was outdated and increasingly difficult to heat and maintain. As a result we felt that we had to replace it and we took the opportunity to incorporate new toilets, including a toilet for the disabled, add a kit and laundry room and re-fashion the bar area.”
Simon continued, “As a fully amateur club we are not wealthy and could not have raised all the capital on our own. We are therefore extremely grateful to the Football Stadia Improvement Fund and to the HS2 Community and Environment Fund, administered by Groundwork UK, for their help. As a result of their support we have a facility which will be an asset not only to the club but also to the community of Amersham.
Aaron Overy, Chairman of Kings Church FC which runs the local teams for youngsters, echoed Simon’s sentiments. “We have been developing close links with Amersham Town and are delighted to see the new build,” he said. “It is important that, in a town such as Amersham, there is a senior club with good facilities which local groups such as ourselves can use and a team to which our players can aspire as they grow older.”
Once football re-starts following the lockdown the clubhouse will be open for all home games, with the appropriate Covid safeguards. Entry to first team games is £5, ( £3 for seniors ) including a programme and free for Under 16s. Fixtures are on our website ( amershamtownfc.com). It is also available for hire, contact Simon Damery on 07801817666.
