Portsmouth Gesture

We received news today that Portsmouth Football Club have kindly donated their proportion of  the Hampshire Senior Cup gate receipts they were owed back to our club.

Basingstoke Chairman Jack Miller said “It’s a classy gesture and it’s very much appreciated by all of us here. The game itself was a great encounter, played in great spirit and all within a terrific atmosphere. Despite the eventual narrow loss on penalties, I’m sure everyone enjoyed the evening and experience, particularly with so many of their first team on show. The gesture typifies every encounter we had with them since the announcement of the game, the match itself and of course, this generous offer – they’ve been first class throughout.”

A huge thank you to Portsmouth FC, Danny Cowley and all his players and staff. Hopefully our paths will cross again soon.
