Witney United to take on Queens Park Rangers
Witney United can today exclusively reveal that they have managed to secure a friendly against Championship side Queens Park Rangers on Tuesday 23rd January 2007 at Marriott's Stadium.
The match came about with the help of former Witney Town player Richard Hill who is currently the Assistant Manager at Loftus Road. He was looking for an option to bring a side to and after a conversation with Club Secretary Adrian Bircher the two sides have managed to agree a date.
Hill is expected to bring a strong side to Marriott's Stadium with the names mentioned so far being Paul Furlong, Dexter Blackstock, Ray Jones and Lee Cook. A full squad will be finalised nearer the time but a strong side had been guaranteed.
As a further gesture Hill has agreed to bring some signed merchandise which the club will look to raffle on the night including a signed Dexter Blackstock shirt.
Ticket details for the match will be finalised this weekend and announced at the start of next week but the match will NOT be all-ticket although supporters wishing to guarantee a seat will have to purchase in advance.
The club meanwhile are looking for potential sponsors for the match and also any volunteers who can help with stewarding etc. Anybody interested in helping should contact Ady Bircher on 07747 123411 or Mark Reid 07771 805823. At the moment please do not call these numbers for tickets.
