Hemel Hempstead Town FC will once again be giving companies and individuals the chance to sponsor the club’s shirts through a popular sponsorship raffle scheme.

The initiative has proved successful for the Tudors in the past few seasons, bringing in vital funds for the club.

There is a total sponsorship prize fund of £10,000 and tickets are priced at £20 each. Each ticket also includes a matchday ticket worth £10.

Prizes include home shirt sponsorship, away shirt sponsorship, website and programme advertising, matchday hospitality, Watford FC tickets, Chiquen meals and Hemel season tickets.

This sponsorship is not just limited to businesses – individuals can enter the raffle and prizes are transferable. MP Mike Penning donated shirt sponsorship to The Hospice of St Francis when he won the prize in the 2011/12 season.

The draw will take place on Monday, August 5 at Vauxhall Road during the Tudors’ game against Wealdstone FC.

For information on purchasing tickets, visit the website at www.hemelfc.com or call 01442 246300 or 07931409426.

Meanwhile, Hemel Town picked up another big pre-season win as they romped to a 6-0 triumph over MSSML Division One side Kings Langley.

The Tudors raced into a 3-0 lead before half-time courtesy of a brace from Charlie Mpi and a Dave Hutton penalty, before Lewis Toomey (2) and Jordan Parkes wrapped things up after the break.

And Hemel boss Dean Brennan has been busy in the transfer market, bringing in two more faces to bolster his squad.

Gareth Chendlik and Leamington goalkeeper Laurie Walker have both signed deals at Vauxhall Road ahead of the start of the 2013/14 season.

Front-man Chendlik was part of the Hemel Town FC youth section – playing for the U18s before going to university – and he has since impressed Tudors boss Dean Brennan in his pre-season appearances.

Walker, meanwhile, has been brought in as a replacement for Sam Beagle who has decided to hang up his gloves to concentrate on forging a career in Formula 2 motor racing.
