Rydon Group - Principal Sponsors

This is just a short introduction to welcome you to the club for this 2016/2017 season. The football club was founded in 1890 although the youth section was formed in 1997 following the merger with two local youth football clubs. The club is dedicated to providing football in the community and runs three senior mens teams, as well as junior teams up to under 18s. There is a friendly atmosphere in the club and we hope that you will come down to the clubhouse and take full advantage of it.

Matches - Adults back to top Go to the top of the page

The first Team play in the Ryman League Division One South at the GAC Stadium at East Court, home to the club since 1967. Our Under 21s will be playing in the Ryman League for the first time this season and we also run a third team in the Mid Sussex Football League. For more information on senior (adult) football at EGTFC contact club secretary Brian McCorquodale at brian.mcc@egtfc.co.uk

On First, Under 21 and Under 18 match days the licensed clubhouse is open and hot snacks are available from the tea bar during First Team matches.

We like to involve all the youngsters as much as we can and one way is for them to lead out our first team as our match day mascot. It's a great opportunity for them to experience the pre-match preparations and atmosphere. Another way is for them to be involved is as a volunteer ball boy/girl. If you are interested in being a mascot or ball boy/girl please contact our commercial manager, Andy Cooper at andy.cooper@egtfc.co.uk

Every junior and youth player is presented with a trophy at the end of the each season at the annual presentation. Trophies are also presented to the Player's Player, Manager's Player and Most Improved Player of each team.

Raising Funds back to top Go to the top of the page

As a club our only income is from gate receipts at senior matches, bar revenue, membership fees, fund raising events and the generosity of our sponsors.

The clubhouse is available for private function hire - for details email Andy Cooper at andy.cooper@egtfc.co.uk or visit our Clubhouse Hire section

Join our "200 Club"! For 1 a week (collected by direct debit at 4 monthly) every member is entered into a monthly draw. 50 per cent of the monies go to the winning numbers and 50 per cent will be ploughed back into the club. All you have to do is contact Richard Tramontin. Why not join together as a family or get your manager to buy a number for the team.

Every year we hold the town's biggest Firework Display at the ground together with the Lions Club. It is a dazzling display and a huge success, thoroughly enjoyed by all who attend.

Another event, albeit non-profit making, is our Footie Fun day. All the local primary schools, children's clubs and organisations are invited to attend. We have not held the event for the past three years but due to demand, we plan on reintroducing it in 2017, so watch out for the date and enter your teams.

For details of all senior home games visit our website which is updated regularly.

Sponsorship back to top Go to the top of the page

We can't thank our sponsors enough for their generosity which has paid for numerous items, from small amounts which purchases things like First Aid bags, to larger amounts such as a whole team kit are so valuable to the club. Every little helps, if you are interested in sponsoring the club or a particular team, please contact Andy Cooper at andy.cooper@egtfc.co.uk or on 07958 494299. The club's main sponsor for the past 26 seasons has been The Rydon Group. This sponsorship is a record for a club in Sussex.

Maintenance back to top Go to the top of the page

We have a few volunteers who generously give up time on Saturday mornings (and occasionally during the week) to maintain and prepare the pitch and facilities. Without their efforts we'd be unable to stage the matches and events at the ground. Please let us know if you are willing to lend-a-hand.
