BETVICTOR, who sponsor the leagues that include Thurrock’s football clubs, will no longer do so as of 9th July this year.
FOOTBALL clubs in Thurrock have today been given an explanation by the Isthmian League chairman as to why the decision was taken to terminate the season on Thursday (April 9th).
Can I start by saying what an honour it is for me to be writing this message as the new chairman of East Thurrock United FC.
GRAYS Athletic Football Club would like to advise that the following directors: Steve Skinner (Chairman), Glyn Jarvis (Vice-Chairman) and Tony Packer (Finance Director), who all stood down from their positions as required by the constitution of our fan owned football club, will reprise their roles for a further three year term, as the club received no applications for any of the roles.
WE can now officially announce Steve Wiseman as the new East Thurrock United FC chairman.
