Yesterday we welcomed our ‘Boys of 66’ back to the club for a Golden Celebratory Luncheon in recognition of their massive achievement in lifting the FA Amateur Cup 50 years ago to the day. It was a fabulous event for all and something a lot of us will not forget for a very long time………

First team versus Bishops Stortford – Away – Kick-off 7:45pm –League

FA Amateur Cup Winners Luncheon
A cracking day at ‘The Vale’ started around just before noon when footballers from a different era gathered along with fans for a celebratory luncheon in the main hall. The ‘boys of 66’ really put the club on the map and set the bar in terms of what collective team-work and effort can be lead to in terms of achievement.
