Guildford City Football Club is pleased to announce that local elder statesman, Freeman of the Borough Bill Bellerby and Alderman John Woodhatch, have both accepted the honorary position of Club Patron.
The honour has been bestowed in recognition of their support for Guildford City football over very many years, both as supporters, and as elected representatives in the council chamber. Bellerby was Guildford City Club President at the time of the Club’s demise in 1974, and served on the local authority with great distinction for 42 years. Alderman Woodhatch similarly is a long-time supporter of the club, having first watched the City before the War. During their long political careers both men served as Mayor, and were instrumental in fighting for a return of senior football to the town.
Guildford City FC will be pleased and honoured to invite both gentlemen to attend our emotive first home league game of the season, which will see our return to the Southern League after a gap of 38 years.
Meanwhile season tickets are currently on sale for the coming season, and supporters are reminded that the advertised early-bird discount expires on 16 July.
