NEWSLETTER, FEBRUARY 2018

NEW BENEFIT FOR TSC MEMBERS

Hemel Hempstead Town FC will now offer TSC members priority booking of advance tickets sales in the event of all-ticket matches that The Tudors play in. The TSC thanks Hemel FC for considering our members, this could apply to Play Off games if The Tudors continue the run of form that has seen us occupy a Play Off position for much of this season.

ROY IS OUR LAST MAN STANDING

After a seasons break, the popular Last Man Standing competition returned to the Tudors Supporters Club in August 2017, lasting just three rounds before CJ scooped the £99 jackpot. The second competition of the season, commencing in September, was won after a fiercely contested eight rounds by Colin, who picked up £103. In the most recent game numbers were down, unfortunately, with Roy Arrigon winning out of 10 entrants to scoop £50 in Round Four. Well done Roy!

We hope more Tudors fans will participate in our fourth and most likely final game of the 2017/18 season which will launch in March, further details will be posted nearer the date once entries are open.

UPCOMING TRAVEL

We are subsidising a coach to Hemel’s upcoming away Vanarama National South league game at Chelmsford City this coming Saturday, 17th February 2018. There are seats still available for this coach which will depart Vauxhall Road at 11am at a cost of £15 per seat for members, £10 non-members. This price is subject to slight fluctuation depending how many fans travel, to ensure the cost of the coach is met. For enquiries/bookings please email info@hemelfans.co.uk or liaise with TSC Chairman Kevin Patterson via Social Media.

This is not an official TSC coach being run in accordance with normal travel rules as per our Constitution; the trip is being run by Hemel fans in association with TSC Chairman Kevin Patterson, with the TSC offering a subsidy to provide our members with a discount.

On Saturday 17th March 2018, we have booked a large coach (with a toilet facility) which we will heavily subsidise for fans to travel to our away game at current league leaders Dartford. Based on initial feedback from the majority of travelling fans, it will be an early departure from Vauxhall Road – 10.30am. The cost will be just £5 for TSC members, £15 non-members. This coach will be run in accordance with usual TSC rules. Please email info@hemelfans.co.uk for enquiries or to reserve a seat or liaise with TSC committee members Kevin Patterson or Danny Green on matchdays – please note we will take payments in advance of this trip.

Travelling fans who aren’t members of the TSC should consider joining ahead of this weekends trip to Chelmsford in order to take advantage of the reduced coach fees on offer, the £10 membership fee will gain members £15 in discounts to the above away games alone, as well as providing other benefits.

EASY FUNDRAISING

The Tudors Supporters Club continues to receive commission from fans who use www.easyfundraising.com when shopping on-line, with £16.74 in the last month taking the total raised to £243.10 since we launched the initiative. If you shop on-line or use price comparison sites for insurance etc, then please consider using easyfundraising as it really is a simple way of generating funds for the TSC.

BEARD TAX

A big thanks to Hemel fans who have contributed to our “Beard Tax” scheme this season, which is an initiative that raises funds for the TSC to sponsor a Hemel player. The TSC sponsors Jordan Parkes and has a target of raising £220 per month – however we are currently under achieving by about £20 a month so if you want to join in the scheme, please click here for the details.

COMMEMORATIVE SHIRTS FOR PLAYERS HITTING MILESTONES

A new initiative introduced by the TSC this season has been presenting player/staff at Hemel FC with commemorative shirts when they hit milestone appearances. Jordan Parkes was presented with a framed shirt when he reached 200 games for Hemel in November, then the management team of Dean Brennan and Stuart Maynard received the same when they hit 300 in December. The TSC thanks Hemel FC and Chairman Dave Boggins for their assistance in this initiative by providing shirts, plus a special mention for TSC committee member Danny Green who has worked very hard sourcing frames and doing the framing himself. Another player is likely to hit a milestone in March so we’ll hopefully have another presentation coming soon.

PLAYER OF THE MONTH

Again, big thanks to all Hemel fans who continue to join in and vote for our months player awards, this is becoming very popular. Three players have picked up five awards between them so far this season, with January’s Player of the Month (someone who hasn’t already won it before…) due to receive a bottle of bubbly ahead of our next home game.
