A big thank you to all members who have helped the Club by renewing both their memberships for the coming season, especially to those who did so as requested before the 31st May AGM & free Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink evening as their names were subsequently entered into the draw for the signed shirts & balls. Jimmy drew out the winning names and presented new member 7 yr old Reggie Stubbs, along with Marie Stacey, with their signed shirts. Robbie Avey was presented with a signed ball, and it was agreed that the fourth prize of a signed ball would instead be donated to Hastings United FC to use as an auction prize for their forthcoming fund raising match with Manchester Utd Legends on 8th September in aid of St Michael's Hospice and Prostate Cancer UK.


I am pleased to now relay that the all important threshold of 110 members has now been exceeded, and critically this means that the club will retain its Platinum Status for next season. This will now enable the club to maintain its current top level of access to match tickets when submitting ticket orders to CFC. The current list of 138 members that will now be submitted to Chelsea is detailed below, and being able to renew our status before the end of June has also enabled the club to be entered into a draw for a further signed shirt for the coming season. Importantly, having now gained the minimum 110 "renewing" or "new" members needed for HDCSC to be able to retain its Platinum Club status, the club's administration can now be fully handed over to the new Committee.


Should anyone who are yet to renew, wish to be added before the final list is submitted to CFC, then they have the opportunity to do so by renewing both memberships before Monday 24th June. After this date the sending out of membership update texts will be limited to those who have renewed both memberships for the coming season (although previous and new members will still be able to be added to the HDCSC 2019/20 membership list by renewing both their Chelsea True Blue Membership and their HDCSC Membership at any time up until 21st December 2019).
