Thurrock Football Club, described as a ‘sleeping giant’ by its new commercial manager, Simon Dent, is looking to raise its profile and get more local people through its turn styles.

Simon has been tasked with the job of trying to engage the local community more to let them know what a good a local facility they have on their doorstep.

He said: “Not only does the club work with a lot of youngsters in the community – we have 35 teams with youngsters from 6 to 18 years, but it also has great facilities for the local community to enjoy. Our match days provide a fantastic day out for all the family. If families go to a premier league game, they will have to pay more than £120. For a much more reasonable cost they can come to see a good game of football at Thurrock, sit in the bar at half time and use all the other facilities on site.”

The club in Ship Lane underneath the Thurrock Hotel, has a main covered stand which has a capacity of 3,000, a large clubhouse, pool table, changing rooms and office.

For £350, local businesses who sponsor a match get VIP treatment which includes free entry for six people who will be greeted at the gate, and they get to watch the game from the director’s box with pre and post match hospitality.

To get more local youngsters in the stands, the club is also offering coaching sessions just before the game starts, so that youngsters get to use the changing rooms afterwards and hopefully stay on to watch the match.

For the remaining seven games of the season Thurrock Football Club is giving Chafford Hundred magazine readers a special offer: on match days, children can come in for just £1 and adults for £6.

Simon says this is a prime opportunity for local people to see and support their local club, a semi-professional men’s team in the Ryman League.

To make use of the offer bring a copy of the magazine to the turn styles or quote the code CHAFFORD when paying.
