Chapman is handed chair at Red Kites
Published 09/06/14



KIM CHAPMAN, who had been acting chairman since February, was elected to fill the position permanently at Henley Town’s annual meeting on Sunday.

Chapman also won the Eric Bailey Memorial Cup for the person who had contributed most to the club in the previous 12 months.

Other officers elected: John Bailey (president); Phil Bell (vice-chairman); Tony Kingston (secretary); Michael Trendall (treasurer); and Craig Sumner (development officer).

The committee will be completed by Amanda Griffin, Andy Bryan, Craig Hiscock and Simon Johnson. Geoff Biggs was elected a life member.

It is clear that the club has moved forward but the problem of attracting younger helpers and the constant battle to make ends meet were featured in the secretary’s report.


Mr Kingston said that, in view of the age and length of service of many of its officials and helpers, the 143-year-old club could not continue to function for much longer without an injection of younger blood.

He also voiced concerns at a perceived lack of interest in the town towards the Red Kites, claiming that at home matches supporters from the opposition far outnumbered those from Henley.

The treasurer explained that a deficit of more than £3,000 in the financial statement was misleading as the accounts did not show sponsorship received shortly after the beginning of the new financial year.

The club decided to retain its CASC status.

In addition to individuals and companies thanked for their financial help, particular gratitude was expressed to Invesco Perpetual and Tesco and to the Sunday team, who paid most of their own expenses.

It was announced that in the coming season Henley Town will be re-entering the Allied Counties Youth League, with an U18s team replacing the U15s.

The first team, reserves and Sunday team will all be competing at the same level as last season.

The U15s wound up their season with a notable victory in the Exeter City six-a-side youth tournament, to which Henley sent two teams.
