Your Tuesday Briefing

Here’s a few updates from around the club…

Danny Vickers

You may have seen our announcement on Monday afternoon where it was noted that Danny Vickers had received positive news following his operation last month. He’s pleased with his own progress and has a follow up meeting in 6 weeks time where it is expected we will be given an expectation of return date. Great news for the club and the player and we will continue to support Danny where possible over that time.

Training & Games

Following the recent announcement from the Government, the first team management took the decision to cancel Saturday’s and this evening planned training sessions. Dan Brownlie cited “With the Southern League already announcing we are unlikely to be playing until 9th January at the earliest combined with the year we’ve had, we didn’t want to put any unnecessary pressure on our players and staff so close to Christmas. We’ve pencilled in plans of our own return, but we have to be fluid in the current climate. For now, this gives the players their first ever opportunity to truly down tools on Christmas Day and New Years Day where previously they’ve had games the following day. We all miss football, but it’s a positive spin at least!”

Club Shop

The Club Shop is open and new items have been added including a stunning retro replica shirt that is now available!

Over the past week, we have been hero-ing some local businesses on our social feeds.

If your business could do with a helping hand, send a quick email to with all your information and it maybe selected to be part of our campaign! Feel free to also nominate local companies.

Together, Our Town United. 

Our Twitter admin has opened up the DM’s (direct messages) to allow supporters the opportunity to chat and ask questions if they could do with some support. More so than ever, whilst you may physically be on your own, you are never alone. We as a club have an amazing network and that’s something each and everyone one of you belong to. So, whether its you, a friend or a relative – if they could do with a pick-me-up and you think we can help or you just fancy a chat, know that you can send us a message. We’re all in this together.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from everyone here at Basingstoke Town Football Club.
