Bassett Finish Above Grimsby! - 7 June
Wootton Bassett Town’s award winning first team programme was once again recognised for its extremely high quality, being ranked 20th best in all non-league football in the 2013 Soccer Club Swap Shop Awards.
The programme, edited by Mark Smedley, was selected as the best in the Uhlsport Hellenic League Division One West and finished above all those produced by Blue Square Premier teams except for Stockport County.
Immediately below Bassett was former Football League side Grimsby Town. Unfortunately it was pipped by Chippenham Town’s match day programme for the best in Wiltshire as the Bluebirds finished 18th in the non-league standings.
Bassett were one of three UHL sides to crack the top 50 as Bracknell Town (an outstanding tenth overall) and Binfield (35th) joined them. Congratulations to both those teams! With all three together in the same division next season it’s going to be an exciting race for the UHLSPORT Hellenic Premier Division top programme prize!
