MP checks on Wolverton Progress

Local MP Mark Lancaster paid a visit to Wolverton Town on Friday to get an update on the progress of the major developments taking place.

Wolves chairman Steve Greenwood showed Mr Lancaster around the facilities and explained how the monies, provided by planning gain from the Wolverton Park development and the local council, were being utilised to make The New Park a unique sporting and social facility for the area.

With major works being undertaken on both the clubhouse building and the playing surface Mr Lancaster couldn't help but be impressed: "With Wolverton Town FC celebrating its 125th birthday next year, the rejuvenation of this club is both timely and a testament to the dedication and hard work of the club's volunteers, who are an example to us all, of just what can be achieved with a bit of determination and support."

Chairman Steve Greenwood said "It is great to receive the support from Mr Lancaster, who I know is working in the background to support our aims. Our long term ambition is to make the club, both sports and social, a major feature in the life of local residents. To this end we welcome new members to the club."

Alongside these major developments Wolverton Town are keen to enhance their playing and social membership. The licensed clubhouse is now open to all on Saturdays and Sundays. There is now regular football being played every weekend as well as training on Tuesdays and Thursdays and, with 1st team, reserves and veterans teams to maintain, new players are very welcome.

The club is located on Field Lane, Greenleys and they welcome all existing and new members.
