Billericay's season got off to a flying start at New Lodge on Saturday as they hit three second half goals without reply to secure a convincing win over one of the sides expected to challenge for league honours.
This season we are launching a brand new fundraising initiative which we hope you will seriously consider taking part in.
With the 'Quid In For A Win' scheme we are asking supporters to pledge £1 for every time The Blues win. The beauty of the scheme is that it's a relatively small commitment from you the supporter, but with numbers behind it, and enough wins, we can raise a significant amount of money for the Club.
As you can imagine, running a football club doesn't come cheap, and sometimes there are projects that need to be undertaken that we simply can't afford to fund. The BTSA are currently raising money for new floodlights for the training pitch, but there are many other projects on the sidelines that will help take our Club forward.
To sign-up for the scheme, please see our official photographer Amanda Protheroe (who is usually ably assisted by Hartley the Dog). She will take your details, and arrange collection of your pounds as and when.
'QIFAW' will be in operation for all competitive First Team games (home and away), starting with our season opener at home to Tonbridge Angels. We hope to launch the scheme online on the Official Website too, allowing armchair supporters to take part and pay online.
So please pledge your support, and help push The Blues onwards and upwards.

It's almost time, this time next week we will have completed our first League game Vs Tonbridge Angels and I will be getting ready to leave for the game at Kingstonian. But until then there are still some last minute adjustments being made. Serge Makofo has been released and we are looking for a replacement, and we are still to finalise a goal keeper. We have lots of cover and options for a keeper, but as it’s such a key position Craig will take his time to ensure he makes the right decision.
