Sharpe elected to FA Council
The Club are delighted to announce that Aron Sharpe has been elected as our regional representative to the FA Council for the forthcoming season. After being nominated by League Chairman Nick Robinson, he was voted for by the 23 clubs whom he is now representing (ranging from Premier League Clubs such as Watford down to our level of non-league).
The role entails representing the best interests of our regional clubs with the FA, and it is a great honour and achievement and provides further recognition for all the hard work that Aron has put in to the club over the past 10 years.
Blues win league award
Wingate & Finchley are delighted to announce that we have been given the prestigious Team Performance of the Year Award.
The club were honoured at the 2017 Isthmian League AGM, following a club record season where the Blues defied expectations to finish in the playoff spots. We would like to thank the league's officials for recognising our achievement.
Meanwhile the league announced that its longstanding partnership with Ryman was ending, to be replaced by global adhesive firm Bostik. Macron also ended their sponsorship, with next season's footballs being provided by Mitre.
