So our 2016/2017 campaign has come to an end.

It's been the most successful one for over a decade with our first team being crowned Oving Cup champions and finishing 3rd in the ADL Premier Division.

After such a triumphant season this is perhaps a great way for Mr Wendover to bow out after a 42 year long association with Wendover Football Club.This month we want to show our admiration and gratitude  for our Club Secretary, Mr Kieron Thomas.

Throughout his time at the club, Kieron  has witnessed many great contests, victories, friendships and feats of selflessness. Kieron has been the heart and soul of our team for many years, taking on various roles including player, Manager and Secretary. Hundreds of players have come and gone and probably never realised how much work this man puts into keeping this club of ours going and how pivotal he has been in ensuring that one of Wendover’s oldest clubs continues for the next generations.

Today the committee is strong and the club has never had a brighter future. However rewind a few seasons and it was much darker days for the club. It is no understatement to say that without Kieron the club wouldn't be running how it is today and the Committee and all of the club's current members would like to wish Kieron a sincere Thank You for giving your time to us. You will be sorely missed from the club.

We hope that you enjoyed your playing days throughout the 70's, 80's, 90's and 00's (debuting in 1975 in the Wycombe District Premier Division -  an outstanding achievement), and we would like to welcome you as a Lifetime Member of our club.

Thank you again, from the Black & Golds and all those associated with your club.

We would like to welcome you all to join us for our end of season presentation night, where Kieron will be honoured, on Saturday 17th June at our clubhouse. Further details can be found on our Facebook page.
