Thatcham Town FA Vase Final

by Gunny Fishcake » 14 May 2018 11:43

I think it's well worth giving a shout out to little Thatcham Town who this Sunday will play in the FA Vase final at Wembley against Stockton Town. A tremendous achievement reaching the final.

I'll be there with hopefully many other Reading fans from West Berks cheering them on.

It's actually very refreshing to go to Wembley without the normal hopes and expectations that have with the exception of the Simod cup always been shattered.

Good luck Thatcham Town !

Yes, it's on BT Sport, followed by the FA Trophy final. It's the third year in a row that they have shown this (since finals day started). I always enjoy FA Non League finals day, and I think it is certainly one of the better ideas that the FA have come up with for Wembley. 8)

It is a magnificent achievement for a club such as Thatcham. What a day for them to remember.

Good to see that 'grass roots' football is thriving in Berkshire. Especially after the durge we have been dished up over the past couple of years.

Maidenhead United also easily consolidating their position in the National League.

So there's only "1 team in Berks" anyone?! LOL

Anyway good luck to Thatcham. I'll be watching for their result.

In February 2016, Reading Town were closed down by owners Battersea and Wandsworth TUC

Seems strange that a Trade Union Council would want to own a football club, well away from where they are based.

It was tied in with running the bars, and/or security, at the Festival. When they lost the contract for the festival it made the football club and it's facilities surplus to requirements and they ran it into the ground.

So the club allowed itself to be taken over by a business basically only interested in one 3 day festival a year in the town? You’d have thought alarm bells would have been ringing right from the off especially when considering the reason that any opportunity the union would have had to make money out of it would be regularly put out to tender.

You’d think they’d have had the decency to at least waited for the end of that season though - and I bet it wouldn’t have happened if it had been Wandsworth Town.

Perhaps Highmoor Ibis should now change their name to Reading Ibis and stay there permanently.

Like many Thatcham based Reading my fans I'm Looking forward to a day out at Wembley tomorrow without the usual fear of Reading failure.

Thatcham have had a great season and can approach the game without fear.
