After much speculation throughout the social media world recently we are delighted to announce that Highworth Town FC will be playing in the Southern League West Division next season. After finishing third in the Hellenic League Premier Division this season our points per game average was the highest of the 16 similarly placed teams at step 5 nationally.
With a vacancy at step 4 the FA contacted the club yesterday to offer us promotion. After a couple of hastily arranged Committee meetings both last night and earlier today we have taken the decision to accept this offer.
It means that in our 125th year we will be playing at the highest level of the football pyramid we have ever achieved.
Congratulations are due to the players and Manager Jeff Roberts and his team in this regard.
This is not only great for the club and football in Wiltshire but also for the town of Highworth itself.
We look forward to hearing from anyone who would like to get involved with our great club.
We thank the FA for this opportunity and the Hellenic League for their support during the long period of time we have been part of " Hellenic family". (Of course our reserves will continue to be so)
This is a huge day for HTFC but the hard work starts NOW.
