We are giving fans advance notice that, at our home fixture on 23rd April V Braintree Town, we will celebrate the club taking over control of the Racecourse Ground. We will be celebrating some of the iconic memories of our past that make it My Racecourse.

The celebrations will include:
• Mickey Thomas recreating the goal versus Arsenal on the pitch at half time
• Parade of former Racecourse legends
• Music from the different Racecourse eras
• Wrex the Dragon & Rockin Robin
• Special souvenir programme

We are encouraging fans to recreate the chant of ‘we shall not be moved’ to celebrate that the Racecourse is back under our control.

As part of our My Racecourse strategy we are asking that fans turn up in large numbers for this game as we seek to get a head start on generating the breathing space we need to turn around the Racecourse’s fortunes and make it a real asset for the football club. A 7,000 crowd would deliver £40k of the £200K we are targeting for season 2016/17.

As an owner of the club you can help by:

• Making this a MUST NOT MISS game
• Bring family, friends and colleagues to the match as we aim to fill the stadium and cheer on the team in the last home game of the regular season
• Bring your flags from the #FlagDay event earlier in the season
• Use #MyRacecourse on social media & get everyone talking about it
• Plan for this to be the game you travel to, if you live away from the area

The easiest way to reserve your seat is to save money by purchasing your ticket in advance online from the comfort of your own home via

Before we get to the My Racecourse game however, we are fully focussed on our vital home fixture versus Dover Athletic. We hope to see a massive turnout for this fixture with as many fans as possible at the Racecourse as we aim to surge into the end of season play offs.
