Appointment of New Honorary President of Orpington Football Club
As one door closes, another one opens....
We’d like to thank Jo Johnson our outgoing President for all his contributions to the club, which include his full and continued support for the demolition and reinstatement of the Pavilion at Goddington Park and also the reinstatement of the gas supply to the Pavilion, meaning that hot water returned to the bathrooms, showers and kitchen in the Pavilion for the first time in 5 years. Jo was passionate about this club and was always keen to lend a hand, in anyway he could. Rumor has it that he actually pulled on an Amber shirt and made an appearance but that still needs to be confirmed!
So, how do you follow that ... with the appointment of our new local MP Gareth Bacon as our new Honorary President. Gareth is a self confessed “sportaholic” and his first question was, “What can I do for the club?”.
He has been made aware of the plans for the Pavilion and has penciled in the 6 June 2020 as a date where he can play a part in the planned community event at Goddington Park which will include the Club's Presentation Day. Please take the opportunity to welcome Gareth to the Club
