Good afternoon and welcome to today’s Vanarama National League fixture against Eastleigh.

Well it’s definitely a very busy time of year with lots happening off the field in the commercial department.  We’ve had nothing but positive feedback on the launch of our shop in Harveys and I report from Harveys suggest the footfall and sales have been fantastic. I would like to personally thank all involved with this venture and to all the people who have already paid the store a visit and purchased some of the goods on offer.

We are also bringing back the FCHT 12-month calendar and this will be available to purchase in store and online very soon! A very special thank you to all the companies that have helped on with the sponsorship of months.

We have plenty of new festive stock in the stadium pop up shop and of course online so if you haven’t yet seen what’s on offer then please make sure you check all the stock out!

The festive period is upon us and we’ve had a superb response to the big Christmas and NYD games!  SO, if you’d like to watch the games over the holiday period in style then we’re offering the following dining packages both from £15 for Children and £45 for Adults.

FC Halifax Town vs Chester FC 23 December 2017 – ‘Our Festive Feast’ a three course Christmas Lunch, premium seating, match-day programme, half-time tea and coffee and post-match presentations PLUS a small gift for all children under 12!

FC Halifax Town vs Macclesfield Town 1 January 2018 – ‘Our New Year’s Lunch’ a three-course lunch, (no turkey in sight!) and guaranteed hearty enough to cure any sore New Year’s Eve head, premium seating, match-day programme, half-time tea and coffee and post-match presentations.

We’re also on the lookout for more mascots for these games so if your child fancies this amazing experience then please get in contact with me directly.  Children have the chance to experience an unforgettable day at The Shay. The package allows mascots to look behind the scenes on a match day, and gives them the opportunity to meet their heroes… and yours! You can also enjoy a fantastic meal in our banqueting suite. If you would like to book this package, then again please don’t hesitate to contact us at the club office – we’ve many options and prices.

The focus remains on Match Day Sponsorship and Hospitality! Thank you to those who have already secured their dates and for anyone else who is thinking about it please do get in touch with me direct! We currently have

20 full match sponsors booked in on various games so please see today’s programme for more info. Being one of our match sponsors guarantees not only a great day or evening out but the chance to either promote your business, use as a gift or maybe for a celebration – whatever its purpose, our focus is on making sure you and your guests have a memorable experience with us.

I would like to give special mention all our senior sponsors Northern Power House Developments, GB Architectural, Dickies Tiles, Pennine Pneumatic, Hanson Plywood, Integro and RSA. Our main sponsors all play a crucial role with the club and I would encourage you to use the services they offer whenever you can. Please mention your connection with the Club when making contact.

ALL revenue is vital and helps towards covering necessary but costly expenses that the club incurs daily. As you’re probably aware, the club works very hard on little off the field resource to generate the income needed, so thank you to all new and existing sponsors who have already supported us this season.

For more details on sponsorship or anything to support the club please give me a call on 07967 949 777 or drop me a line at

Thank you all for the continued support
