The Club would like to issue an appeal for matchday volunteers for the upcoming 22/23 season.

Since taking over Walton & Hersham FC, three years ago this week, we could not have imagined the whirlwind years that would follow, with a return to the Isthmian League secured last month off the back of consecutive promotions. The growth in support of the club since 2019 has been nothing short of astounding, and we can only hope this continues over the coming seasons. 

However, with rapidly increasing attendances, the greater demands of the Isthmian League and our fiercely strong ambitions to continue growing on and off the pitch, the ability to continue smooth operations as a club – particularly on matchdays – will be placed under significantly greater strain from next season onwards. 

Over the last three seasons the club ownership has devoted an unparalleled amount of personal time and effort into ensuring the club has operated at the highest possible standard. Surprisingly though, during this period, we have not been able to add any new volunteers to the club ranks. We are therefore making a fresh appeal for matchday volunteers, to aid the club across a variety of roles next season. 

These positions include, but are not limited to: Turnstile operators, stewards, merchandise stand assistants, tannoy operator, boardroom attendants and general matchday assistants. Those who offer their time in any of the aforementioned roles will be offered a range of perks including personalised and complimentary W&H FC merchandise, as well as the ability to attend exclusive club events. 

We are incredibly grateful for the continued dedication and hard work of John, Bob, Anne and Merv, who have been relentlessly consistent in ensuring we have been able to operate as efficiently as possible on matchdays over past seasons. For the upcoming season however their efforts will not suffice without the support of an additional cohort of volunteers, especially if we are to aspire for promotion for a third straight season. 

If you are interested in helping please email and include a bit of information about yourself and the role(s) you would like to volunteer for. 

Many thanks for your continued support and we hope to be hearing from some of you soon. 

The Board of Directors
