Big changes at WTFC as a new chair takes the hot seat at Alfredian park. And we sadly say goodbye to long serving committee members


Following on from our AGM , which took place on Monday 6 June 2022, please join us all at Wantage Town Football Club in welcoming our new Chairwoman, Lesley Furnival. Lesley’s family have long been members of Wantage Town Football Club so you could say it runs in her blood! We are confident that she will step into this role giving it her all and will provide the Club with great leadership. She is also the FIRST woman Chairperson the club has seen in its 130-year run.
We also have a new Treasurer - Richard Plumb. With his accountancy background he will be a great asset to the team. He also has been the goalkeeping coach for the first team so is no stranger to the Club.
Mike Skinner has remained as Honorary Secretary and Steve Cooper was re-elected as Honorary Match Secretary. Both are invaluable members to the Club.

Sadly though we are saying goodbye to the current Chairman, Ian Glover and his wife Lindsay, who is also stepping down as Treasurer. They have worked tirelessly for the Club over the last 6 years bringing it back from a point where the threat of closure was real. They have done a tremendous job for the Club, and we are so very grateful to them. While they are stepping down from their official roles, we hope they won’t be strangers to the Club, and we look forward to seeing them visit for match days and functions. So from all at the Club to the Glovers, we thank you! We also say goodbye to Phillip Small, Wayne Kent & Jackie Mcdowell. We thank them all for the time and effort they have put into the club in recent years.
In addition to a new Chairwoman and Treasurer, new committee members were elected bringing the total members to 7 ladies and
5 men.
