The Competition

If you want to enjoy all the excitement and atmosphere of our highest-ranked local football club, enter the Penny Post summer competition below to WIN two free season tickets (normally £195 each) for Hungerford Town FC’s 2019-20 season.

FIVE RUNNERS UP will get a free ticket one of Hungerford’s first home games of the season for instance vs Slough Town 19:45 Tuesday 6 August or vs Maidenhead 3pm Saturdey 10 August.

All you need to do is answer the eight questions below and send your answers to competitions@pennypost.org.uk with the subject HTFC Competition by noon on Monday 15 July 2019. Please be sure to include a phone number (which we’ll only use if we need to contact you about this competition). Please also tell us in what part of the Penny Post area you live – a town or village name is all we need. Please DO NOT enter by commenting on this post using the form below.

The two season tickets and the five match tickets can be transferred to anyone you choose and are subject to all the normal terms and conditions, including future transferability, that apply to these.

If the winner has already bought a season ticket for 2019-20 then the club will instead provide you with two free season tickets for the 2020-21 season.

Hungerford Town FC

Although by no means the largest town in the area, Hungerford is proud to have the region’s highest ranked football club. Hungerford Town FC (known as The Crusaders) plays in National League South, the sixth tier of the English football pyramid, to which they were promoted at the end of the 2015-16 season. This league includes teams from places as large as Oxford, Slough, Woking and Bath: last season, it was won by Torquay, a fully professional team which only a few years before had been in the Football League. (Hungerford – badly in need of points to ensure their survival – went to Torquay in the penultimate match of last season and beat them 1-0.) We’re therefore talking about a club which punches well above its weight.

In general, matches take place at Bulpit Lane on alternate Saturdays during the season (early August to late April) although there are some midweek games. The bar and clubhouse (which is also available for private hire) is open before and during the matches and there is covered seating available for over 500 spectators. Children, families and disabled spectators are welcome.

Some of you may support teams like Liverpool, Spurs, Chelsea or Arsenal, although to see them play you’d have to travel considerable distances (perhaps as far as Madrid or Baku). The Crusaders are the ‘second’ club (and sometimes the first) for an increasing number of people in the area. Due to Hungerford’s high league status, the team includes loanees from larger clubs who subsequently end up playing in the football league itself.
