Welcome to the new Guildford City Football Club website as we step forth into a new era.
The website has, as you will see, had a complete overhaul, and we believe the site is now on par with many in the Football League. The website will have more news on show and more stories to tell, and we would like to thank our website manager Jack Underwood for the work he has undertaken.
It isn’t just the website that has undergone a transformation. We as a club are about to embark on an exciting journey, both on and off the pitch. During the close season we have restructured the organisation to make it fit for our aims and ambitions. On the pitch we have appointed a first-class manager and coaching team who are attracting a strong playing squad for the new season. Off the pitch the club has been strengthened by the addition of high-level management support; individuals successful in business and experienced in the football industry. A town the size of Guildford deserves a strong football club, competing with our local neighbours Aldershot, Dorking and Woking. We want that journey to start now, and we’d like the people of Guildford to come on the journey with us. See what you think yourselves by watching the short video above.
Throughout the club we are looking to become more professional in everything we do. The club badge (above) has been redesigned, combining elements of our traditional badges with new and current themes to create a Guildford club badge for the present. As manager Paul Barnes said “A new era for the club brings with it new ideas and a new level of professionalism that we will work tirelessly to instil in all we do. Having such great support from our chairman and senior management, allows it all to be possible, as we have implemented such roles as sports scientists, physical and psychological performance coach, performance analyst, sports therapist and our well qualified coaching staff, who as a team has over 50 years’ experience between them.”
The journey isn’t just about the first team. It’s about the community and our role in it. We have introduced a Women’s team for the first time, and we will be looking to introduce disability football in due course. We are also making improvements for spectators at the Spectrum stadium; the first stage of which is additional seating.
But for you the fans watching football at Guildford City will be inexpensive this season. Our “Football for a Fiver” scheme will allow you to watch the game, obtain our quality programme and get a drink for under £10. Season tickets are also on sale at low prices and are tremendous value. Prices start from just £30. The good news for existing season ticket holders is that you will receive a FREE season ticket for the new campaign. For those eager to see our new playing squad in action we will shortly be announcing our strongest ever programme of pre-season fixtures.
Thank you for reading our important message. These are exciting times for everybody connected with Guildford City, and we hope to see you join us at the Spectrum in August.
