Unless there’s a remarkable twist in our favour with the final weekend’s results and we secure automatic promotion to the Blue Square South, it looks more likely that the hard fought three points won in the re-arranged game v Brackley Town on Tuesday evening has guaranteed us a play-off place.
Depending on how the other teams in the mix fair over the weekend will determine where we finish in the top five and whether or not we host one of the play-off semi-finals scheduled for next Thursday, 28th April, k.o 7.45pm with the decider on Monday, 2nd May k.o 3pm.
HOW IT WORKS
If we finish 2nd or 3rd we host a semi-final against the team who finished 5th or 4th respectively, ie 2nd plays 5th and 3rd plays 4th. The winners of those ties meet in the final on bank holiday Monday with the team who finished highest in the final league table hosting the decider.
Plans both on and off the park are already well advanced in anticipation of a home tie next week and the expected bumper crowd it will attract. The tie has also presented some extra sponsorship and hospitality opportunities for local businesses to entertain and thank clients and employees or a unique way to simply treat the family and friends. It’s a bonus for the club too by generating welcome revenue as we approach the summer months when matchday income is at a standstill.
SPONSORSHIP & HOSPITALITY OPPORTUNITIES
