Hungerford Town has been nominated as Best Matchday Experience at the Berkshire Football Awards 2023.

The season may have ended in relegation from the Vanarama National League South, but one thing the Crusaders did do during the last 12 months was to take their match-day experience up a notch.

The Bulpit Beast, Four For A Score, the #smallbutmighty side put it all out there for home and away supporters.

The nomination for the award said: “I’ve always enjoyed an away day with my team Slough Town to Bulpit Lane. It’s one of my favourite grounds as it has a lot of character. I particularly like the seated stand where the plastic seats have been screwed onto a plank of wood. But whenever I’ve gone there, the volunteers and fans have always been friendly and welcoming. The outgoing chairman has greeted us and welcomed us to the ground on every occasion I’ve been, and thanked us for coming as we’ve walked out. I can’t think of anywhere else this has happened. They have a good offer on food/entry with the 4forascore offer, which gets you in with a programme a pint and the now famous Bulpit Beast Burger. It’s things like this when a club thinks of the supporter that makes it a worthwhile visit. I’m only sorry I won’t be going back next season. Good luck to them.”
