After match party

There will be an after match party at the Victoria Park Hotel. Players from both teams will be in attendance. The party starts from 7.30pm.

FC Fans/Players Friendly Match v Holker Fans/Players

A proposed event scheduled for Sunday 6th May is a Friendly match between FC Fans/Players and Holker Fans/Players. If you were in Leipzig and witnessed the Fans match there, you will no doubt remember a certain player/referee who doubled up as a beer waiter. Hence, these games are not what you might call a serious affair, however all players should be aged 16 or over.

If you would be interested in taking part, please contact the Supporters Network on 07895 099333.

It is anticipated that this match will be an early afternoon kick off, thus allowing plenty of time for a lie-in first (just in case you’ve been out late the night before of course).

Juniors Friendly Match v Holker U14s

Another proposed event scheduled for Sunday 6th May is a juniors game against Holker U14s.

Ideally, we would like to field an eleven a side team but if this is not possible then a short sided game (7s or 9s) would still be worthwhile.

The only stipulation is that the team must be made up of players that are aged 13 or 14 on the day.

It would be appreciated if anyone who has kids interested in taking part could please contact the Supporters Network on 07895 099333. All kit will be provided, they only need their boots and shinpads.


Tents and Caravans will definitely be allowed on Holker Old Boys over the weekend. Camping will be free and the use of the clubs showers and toilets will be available. Anyone interested in this shuold PM " Big Black Coat " on the fans site or ring Phil on 07833 995011 for comfirmation of places.

Coach Travel

There are a limited number of places available on the players coach to Holker. The coach will depart from Chorlton Street at 9am on the Saturday morning. Please note that the coach will not be leaving Holker until 11:30pm.
