SAD PASSING OF TUDORS FAN:
We received the news earlier this week that long-term TSC member and keen Hemel fan Paul Oxtoby passed away during a family holiday. We will have the opportunity to pay our respects to Paul at the next Hemel Hempstead Town FC home game when the club plan a minutes applause.
TSC QUIZ NIGHT AT VAUXHALL ROAD:
The Tudors Supporters Club is hosting a fundraising quiz night at Hemel Hempstead Town Football Club, Vauxhall Road on Friday 31st March 2017, starting at 7.30pm. Entry is £10 per team (maximum six persons per team) and there will be prizes for the winning team and the runners up, as well as a wooden spoon prize for the biggest losers… There will also be a raffle on the night, prizes to be conformed and announced nearer the date. If you would like to get involved by donating prizes or if you can facilitate someone else donated a prize, then please contact us. We’re excited to be finally running our first social event; the TSC has been going for just over three years now aside from providing subsidised coach travel to away games and, more recently, sponsoring a Tudors player and organising the Player of the Month Award, laying on social events like this have always been something we’ve intended to do but never gotten around to organising. The aim of the quiz night is primarily to raise funds for the Tudors Supporters Club as we’ve lost significant income since we stopped running the Last Man Standing competition midway through the 2015/16 season; but we also aim for the quiz night to be a social event where Hemel FC fans, staff, friends and families can mix and have fun. To book your team a place on our quiz night, please contact our Membership Secretary/Social Secretary Danny Green – firstname.lastname@example.org; we will be charging the £10 entry fee in advance of the quiz night.
We’re currently looking at the feasibility of running coaches to upcoming away games at Concord Rangers (Saturday 25th March) and Poole Town (Good Friday 14th April). Concord will be priced £10 for all members (adults and juveniles) and £15 guests, while Poole will be priced £15 adult members (£20 guests of members) and £10 Under 18’s. To express you interest in seats, please liaise with TSC committee members Kevin Patterson or Danny Green on Social Media or at Vauxhall Road on match days, or email email@example.com
SHERI SCOOPS PLAYER OF THE MONTH AWARD:
Tudors striker Charlie Sheringham capped his impressive first month at Vauxhall Road by picking up the Tudors Player of the Month award for February 2017. Charlie, who netted five goals in four games last month, received over 50% of what was a popular vote which was run via our website but was open for all Tudors fans to participate in. Pictured is Charlie receiving his prize from young Tudors fan Rob Scott at Vauxhall Road, prior to our 2-2 draw against Chelmsford City on Saturday 4th March 2017.

TSC 2017 ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING:
Our 2017 AGM is most likely to take place at Vauxhall Road on the evening of Tuesday 2nd May 2017, to be confirmed hopefully by the time our April Newsletter is published. The meeting is probably as important this year as it ever has been, with less travel organised by the TSC for our members this season than previous years – which was one of the main reasons this club was formed in the first place. We’re keen to engage with fans to discuss the direction the supporters club is going in, with other initiatives such as “Beard Tax” and Supporters Player of the Month to cover, while making sure that the TSC is serving fans in the best way possible and ensuring fans are keen to renew their membership going forward. We’re very receptive to feedback, comments and suggestions, ultimately this supporters club is in place to serve the needs and desires of the fans, and our AGM’s are the best place for you to have your say.
JOIN OUR BEARD TAX SCHEME, WATCH THE TUDORS FOR FREE:
Hemel Hempstead Town FC Chairman Dave Boggins has offered two free tickets per home game to fans who participate in the Tudors Supporter’s Club “Beard Tax” scheme, which is a supporters based fund raising initiative for sponsoring a Tudors player. For the remainder of the 2016/17 season, two fans will be selected by the Beard Tax sub-committee for free entry; this may be by means of random selection, or specific fans could be picked if the committee consider a fan deserves free entry for a significant effort in promoting the scheme. Furthermore, where possible, new members to the scheme will be provided with free-entry to an upcoming Tudors game. Click here to find out more about our budget boosting “Beard Tax” initiative.
