In the heart of our Club, there exists a group of remarkable individuals who have become the backbone of our organisation—fondly known as ‘The Golden Boys’.
Recognised far and wide within the Club’s departments for their unwavering loyalty, these dedicated volunteers have played an integral role in the success and upkeep of our club.
Twice a week, like clockwork, the Golden Boys assemble to lend their helping hands in maintaining the grounds. Whether it's tidying up after a weekend fixture or undertaking various tasks around the facility, painting and fixing almost everything, their commitment knows no bounds. Rain or shine, they are there, working tirelessly all year round.
This extraordinary group, has been an inseparable part of our journey since the humble non-league days. Through thick and thin, they have stood by us, contributing their time, effort, and expertise to elevate the club to new heights.
At the forefront of this dedicated group is Geoff Butler, a stalwart who has dedicated over 60 years of his life to the club. Geoff's unwavering commitment serves as an inspiration to all, embodying the true spirit of volunteerism and community engagement.
Monday and Friday mornings bear witness to the camaraderie and hard work that define the Golden Boys' sessions. With a shared passion for the club, they seamlessly integrate into their roles, ensuring that every corner of the facility reflects the pride and dedication they bring.
Their efforts go beyond the visible impact on the grounds; they contribute to the very soul of our club.
Their support has been immeasurable, not just as volunteers but as integral members of our club's family. For this commitment we would like to recognise and celebrate their contributions by awarding them our ‘EFL Community Hero Awards’,
Geoff Butler, John Fall, Bob Head, Ed Hess, Brian Booth, Chris Clewes and Jim Hague, the club would not be where it is without you.
