Aylsham Football Club bosses have appealed to any former players who want to either share their memories or be involved in the opening of the new edge-of-town community facility to get in touch.

The state of the art million-pound ‘sports for all’ facility will open this autumn, with the football club one of the main users of the site.

The 10-pitch sports ground off Cawston Road will feature four changing rooms, a bar and function room, floodlights and a car park.

It may be a new ground, but ‘old’ players have been encouraged to take part in the future of the club, either by simply giving their memories, sharing old photographs, attending the opening ceremony or helping out with the various voluntary roles needed to run the club, which has ambitions to expand to 22 teams once the new site is fully up and running.

“We would love to create a strong old player network for a wide range of reasons,” said club chairman Ian Potter.

“We are very much looking to the future at Aylsham Football Club, but we also put enormous value on our history and would like to celebrate the past as much as possible.

“Anyone who wants to contribute to that would be made more than welcome.”

Club member Ian Boam has volunteered to coordinate the memories of former players and can be contacted at ian.s.boam@unilever.com or 07709 091616.
