On 14th April the Cards are due to play their 1000th game in National League Premier division - in the process becoming just the sixth team in the history of the league to reach this landmark. On that day we play Bromley at The Laithwaite Community Stadium and intend to mark the occasion with a bumper souvenir programme looking back on the club’s time in the 5th tier. We are also planning to invite back some of our former players and managers to share in the celebrations. More on that at a later date.
Apart from reserving the date in your diary we would like you, the fans, to contribute to the day. You can do this in two ways:
• We would like to hear from fans who have followed the Cards during this era and who think they have watched a large number of the 999 previous games. We are also keen to include in the programme a contribution from supporters outlining the trials and tribulations associated with following the team up and down the country and any particularly memorable games that might bring a light hearted angle to the history. If you think you can help, please drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
• We will also be holding a competition. In the souvenir programme we will be summarising the statistics around those players who have represented the club in the National League Premier Division and we will be asking you to try to guess how many players have donned the shirt in the first 999 or so games. The person who comes closest will win a hospitality package for 4 people for Woking’s match against Dover Athletic on Saturday 28th April. Entry forms will be available at forthcoming home games or you can download one here
, and will cost £2 per entry or £5 for three entries.
