Ampthill Town

Recommended Posts

A messege from Ampthill Town on another Forum, they are right that on-line programmes are going to have a huge knock on effect on attendance figures and groundhoppers will avoid those Club's like the plague. It is a nice gesture however by the Ampthill Park Club to offer printed programmes on request:

Ampthill Town took the decision in the summer to only produce online programmes for the 2019/20 season. Increasing costs and lack of sales made this business decision for them. Unable to quantify it accurately, it has definitely been noted that not producing paper programmes is likely to put some people off attending (the number of people that stay away because of this is unlikely to outweigh the cost savings). With this in mind, Ampthill Town are willing to produce printed matchday programmes on request, or I can send you the PDF to print at home. 

On a much more positive note Ampthill Town now stock pin badges (thanks to Terry's Badges) and these will be available in the clubhouse (£3) or can be posted (£3.50) - please message me if you want one sent to you.

Yep I know some and have met some ground hoppers that wont step foot in a ground if there is not a paper programme available but clubs have to think about other things and not just keeping some ground hoppers happy by filling up there plastic bags 😉

Is Eric Turner still at Ampthill Park, I''m sure he wouldn't have allowed that to happen, on-line programmes are simply sacrilege, nothing more nothing less
