As we edge closer to the opening of the long-awaited new Main Stand facilities, I thought I would give you a glimpse of the EUFC Community mural that will form the main wall feature on the inside of the new Community Hub, located at the Stonebridge Roundabout end of the stand. Designed by our own Ed Miller, the mural gives an insight to the Community events we have run at the club since KEH Sports took over in 2013.
The Community Hub, incorporating a meeting area, kitchen facilities, an integrated AV sound and vision system for presentations and film clubs, together with our own state-of-the-art Sound Recording Room, will offer EUFC the opportunity to work even closer with our Community Partners in delivering great opportunities to those living in Gravesham Borough and the neighbouring area.
Our friends at local Northfleet Beat Club, Richie Mansfield and Danny May, have been crucial to getting the right equipment ordered and installed in our Sound Room and they will soon be able to offer sessions in addition to those they already provide to young musicians every Monday evening from 6pm-8pm at Northfleet Central (Rainbow Centre) on Rose Street.
A quick mention to the ‘lads’ of the EUFC Over 50s Walking Football Squad who played their second Kent Walking Football League game on Monday night against Margate. Although Margate came back from 2-1 down to win 4-2, the game was a milestone for the squad seeing Colin Britteon and then Jeff Forster scoring the first goals for the Fleet Over 50s in a competitive game. “The ‘lads’ are working hard on holding on to a lead,” says Squad Coordinator Chris Judge.
