AT Wellington AFC’s Annual General Meeting last Tuesday, treasurer, Reg Oxby, reported that the club had recorded a profit of £4,000 on the 2022/2023 season compared to a loss of £9,000 on the previous season.

The money coming in was essential for the running of the club and he thanked all those who helped in various roles as without these volunteers the club would be unable to function.

Mr Oxby was happy that the Club was in sound financial position to meet the demands of the forthcoming season and to support future development.

Club chairman, Mike Hall, welcomed everybody to the meeting and said that in football terms it had been one of the most challenging years for the Club. 

He extended the Club’s thanks to Tim Legg and Alex Pope for the work they had done with the First Team and welcomed Richard Cherry who has taken over the management of the team with long serving first team player Jack Bown-Porter.
