On behalf of Hitchin Town Football Club, we would like to thank the Hitchin public, the club’s loyal fans, the non-league community and football fans from all over the world for their tremendous support for the Save Top Field march on December 6, 2014.
There is no doubt that the day was an enormous success. Not only was the march and the game well supported, but the goodwill that was generated was very moving for everyone connected with our much-loved club.
We sent a very clear message to the landlords that the club, indeed the town, will not lay down and accept what many people are calling “dire plans”.
While this march achieved its objectives, we also recognise that this is merely the start of a protracted campaign that will require dedication and resolve. We are firmly committed to winning the battle and to securing the long-term future of Hitchin Town Football Club.
Once more, thank you to everyone who took part or offered their support in other ways. We are extremely grateful.
Terry Barratt Andy Melvin
