Good afternoon and welcome to today’s league clash against Boston United!

Well it’s been a rather varied working week with Tuesday the day to say our final goodbyes to the FA Trophy. Tuesday I was on driving down to Wembley duty to hand back over to the FA which might I add was very long journey on the way back taking nearly 6 hours! However, I did have a nice tour of the place and I must thank Chris and Scott from the FA for making our journey down a little bit more exciting!

Today we welcome match sponsors in the form of The FCHT Supporters Club!

This is an annual arrangement for the supporter’s club and we’re very happy to be welcoming you back today! Over 34 people in the party and I must thank Roger Bottomley for working closely with me and his continued commitment to the club! We salute you sir! We must also mention Roger and Hazel Burchall who are with the supporter’s club today as they’re celebrating 68 years of marriage to the day! WOW enjoy your extra special day!

Today’s Associate Match Sponsor is Darren Playford from DJ Decorators – Darren is here today with friends and family and we hope you all enjoy your day with us! Darren is a regular sponsor of the club and for this we are very grateful. If any of you need any decorating services, you can pick up Darren’s details in today’s match day programme.

As always, we would like to give a special mention all our senior sponsors for this season Northern Powerhouse Development, GB Architectural, Integro, RSA Hanson Plywood, VW Van Centre & Transline. Our main sponsors all play a crucial role with the club and I look forward to working with them this season.

I would also like to welcome new sponsor from AFP Digital Ryan Pharo and his family who are joining us today in the dining room! Thank you for the support and we look forward to working with you over the coming years.

Thanks to our Box Holders today who are Stewart from Charnock- Bates, FCHT Commercial Group along with Peter Noble and friends. We hope you have a superb day with us as always.

Today we are joined in the dining room by former Halifax Town player George Holt and it’s his Birthday!  George was born in Halifax on 28th February 1927 and later in life celebrated a career in football taking him to Aldershot and of course Halifax Town where he made his debut against Mansfield Town in 1948. George was obviously a local lad who then became a key figure in Halifax Town’s epic FA Cup run of 1952-53, helping defeat First Division sides Cardiff and Stoke, but cruelly denied a place in the line up to face Tottenham through injury. Today George is joined by his family for the full pre-match hospitality meal – We all wish you a very Happy Birthday and we hope you enjoy your special day with us!

The focus is obviously Match Sponsorship for the rest of this season
