Hello to everyone and I hope you are all enjoying your close season...preparing for the 2010 World Cup.
As with any close season, there is work to do down the club and I have been asked to ask the Supporters if they can spare some time, either over the next four weekends or week days if you can spare, to help prepare the club for the coming season as well as the impending Beer Festival.
Work at weekends is to take place between 10:00 - 14:00 Saturdays and Sundays and will involve a certain amount of DIY, including painting, weeding, cutting back of trees, concreting and help putting up the new fences that I beleive have been ordered and delivered.
If you can help out during the week, then please contact Mick Nixon on 07977208203 to arrange times.
The work is essential and so are the efforts of our supporters. If you can get down to help out, you know whatever help you can give will be appreciated.
I hope to see some of you down the club on this Saturday.
Hill Piling are not renewing the shirt sponsorship for next season, and due to the current economic climate it may prove difficult to find another major sponsor before the new season. Therefore we are making the shirt sponsorship available to everyone via a draw. It is something that we have done before, and it is something several clubs are doing this season.
But our draw is different, there are 10 prizes available and every ticket holder will be included in our 'Supporting Billericay Town FC' programme sponsor page. But what makes our draw different is the price - tickets are just £25 each and anyone can buy them.
At £25 per ticket it's an amount that all businesses can afford, and with the chance to buy multiple tickets people can increase their chances of a major prize whist keeping control of their spend. Supporters, schools, clubs can group together to form a syndicate. People can buy and donate the prize to a charity. Tickets can be purchased and gifted for birthdays etc. At Just £25 per draw ticket with 10 major prizes and a guaranteed insertion as a sponsor in the matchday programme it is fantastic value. Who knows, next season our shirts could be showing the logo of Cancer Research, Hamelin House, Brightside School, Stewarts, The Blue Army, BTSA, HMRC Salsa Troupe, Billercay Colts Fluffy Bunny, Big Nige, etc. etc.

This picture, which we think shows a BTFC Under 8s team, features a young Mike Marsh (back row, second left).
Mike joined Billericay Town as an Under 6, and made his first team debut this year against Sittingbourne. Whilst scoring prolifically for the Under 18s and Reserves, he also appeared against Concord Rangers in the Isthmian League Cup, and then made his league debut in the 2nd half away to Sutton United in the last game of the season.
Well done Mike! A great example of how young players can progess through the ranks at Billericay Town. We look forward to lots more goals from Mike next season, and discovering some more stars of the future at our upcoming youth team trials.
We are holding trials for our Under 15 team on Saturday 19th June. The Under 15s play in the Eastern Junior Alliance League.
