Let’s get behind our local team, the Red Kites like we do the Henley Hawks rugby team.
Henley Town Football Club is the oldest football club in Oxfordshire and was formed in 1871 during the golden era when many of today’s leading professional clubs were founded.
Today many of those clubs are massive organisations backed by billionaires but unlike their wealthy counterparts Henley Town Football Club is run by volunteers and exists almost entirely on fund raising by members and income from the Clubhouse.. If it wasn’t for the generous sponsorship and donations from local Companies and Individuals the club would have folded ages ago.
Non League football doesn’t attract large crowds but whatever the attendance the cost of running the Club remains the same. Apart from the cost of things like rates and electricity to run the clubhouse it costs over £200 to put on a Hellenic League home fixture so unless we can get a local Company or Individual to sponsor a match every game is run at a loss.
If you’re Company would like to help the Town’s Football Club by Sponsoring a match, taking a perimeter advertising board, advertising in the match programme or making a donation please contact Kim Chapman by phone 07515 892909 or by email on firstname.lastname@example.org or pop in and see us at the Clubhouse.
