Programme vs Aldershot

Aldershot are producing a printed programme for the FA Cup game on Saturday 24th October.

The Trust has arranged to get a supply of the programmes and can take orders for mailing out. Cost includes UK mailing.

You can order from the Cards Trust shop here.

Orders must be completed by 9.00am Friday morning 23rd October 2020.

They will be mailed out after we get them from Aldershot, so they won’t be available at the time of the game.

Historic Programmes

As you may have noticed, we now have many of last season’s programmes available for sale by download. The rest will be added over the next few days.

The club, through Alan Barnes, has a lot of historic printed programmes going back to the ’80s. There are also a large number of away programmes and a variety of programmes covering league and non-league fixtures. The aim is to run occasional promotions of particular clubs from time to time.

If you are looking for a particular match or club, you can contact Alan by email (a.barn1572@btinternet.com) and he will confirm if he has what you want. If he does, you can go to the Trust shop and purchase the number agreed with him. We have set up from 1 to 4 programmes. If you need more or need mailing other than second class to the UK, then discuss that with Alan and we’ll make special arrangements.

Programmes for Sale

The Cards Trust will be selling downloadable programmes for the coming season on the Trust website as physical programmes will not be available at the ground. This reduces the chances of virus transmission and will eliminate the need to have people selling them and the cash handling.

The programme for the Pre-Season Friendly v Dorking Wanderers is now available from the new Trust web shop. If you run into any issues with your purchase, contact webmaster@cardstrust.co.uk.

We have been asked about printed copies. We can get the price down a bit if we can get a number of people that would want a printed copy, but we’d need a paid commitment up front as the club and the Trust cannot risk not selling them. We’re just exploring possibilities at the moment, but we think that if we could get a reasonable number of people to commit to ‘season tickets’ for all league programmes in the season, we could get the price down to around £5.00 collected, £7.00 posted. That means a commitment of £115 or £161. We would expect refunds would be given if the season wasn’t completed. If you might be interested in signing up for all of them, email me at programme@wokingfc.co.uk. If there is enough interest, we’ll try to get it done. There is no need to commit to buy electronic ones – they can be bought any time.

We are planning to make programmes from the 2019/20 season available too – watch this space!

Volunteers

Depending on the government’s decision on stadia at our level re-opening to fans in October, when Woking should have their first home match of the season on Saturday 3rd October against Solihull Moors, we are currently working on the basis that fans will be able to attend, albeit in limited numbers.

Whilst all of us are awaiting the further government guidance, we at Woking Football Club need to plan this in the context of being COVID safe, and now we need to ask supporters whether they can help us achieve this on match days at The Laithwaite Community Stadium.

There will be various opportunities for fans to volunteer and offer their help – this will allow a limited number of fans to be able to access the match as a thank you for their commitment to the club.

Whilst we are finalising the arrangements, some of the tasks we are likely to need fans to help with include temperature checks, ticket scanning, general marshalling within the ground, assistance with setting up and removing barriers, and general duties. Volunteers are likely to be required from 1pm on Saturdays and 6pm for evening matches (times TBC). The commitment would only be up until kick-off, at half-time, and potentially after the match there may be some help needed with marshalling for a short period.

If you feel that you can commit to helping the club either on a Saturday or Tuesday on a regular basis with any of these tasks please contact Rupert Phillips at rupert.phillips@cardstrust.co.uk no later than Wednesday 23rd September, thank you.

Your help will enable us to get through this season together, the Cards Trust is committed to supporting the Board to help make this happen.

Volunteering

Volunteers are a crucial part of the operation of Woking FC. We have a proud record in how many ways that volunteers help the club. It’s part of what makes Woking FC so special. Members of the Trust board were part of the team that helped to distribute the new “Get behind the Shirt” team shirts to delighted fans on Saturday. Thanks to those that contributed in the red BTB bucket and completed new BTB mandates!
