CLUB STATEMENT l From Steve Lynch regarding Fixtures 2016/17
Following receiving our allocated fixtures on the evening of Thursday 14th July, we were suddenly made aware of the arising issue of our normal Bank Holiday derby matches with Stourbridge being moved to a midweek fixture. To say we were shocked was an understatement, that one of the largest Derby matches in Non-League drawing in excess of 4,000 people over two matches can be switched to a standard midweek game. Especially as I had recently been to a League meeting where Chairman Mark Harris had spoken at length about raising the leagues profile to promote Evo-Stik as a brand to encourage the renewal of sponsorship, so for the league to then move this fixture seems a massive own goal. I am sure Evo-Stik would prefer to see their brand promoted at a massive Derby game than a fixture that will struggle to gain a quarter of the gate.
Halesowen Town Football Club host Kidderminster Harriers tonight in a pre season friendly at The Grove, the first of three before the season kicks off in August. The Yeltz used the loan market well last season utilising many players from the Harriers set up. As ever the James Grove Lounge will be open and access to the ground can be gained from the Old Hawne Lane entrance.
Pre Season Friendly - Saturday, 23rd July 2016
AFC Wulfrunians 1 Halesowen Town 2
Halesowen Town ended their away friendlies with a 2-1 defeat at a very well organised Alvechurch side. John Hill once again fielded many trialists as he looked to find the best squad to take into the new season. Ex Alvechurch player Kyle Morrison was handed the captains armband as Jay Denny was rested to the bench.
