Gresley Re-Union Day
Gresley Re-Union Day
Unfortunately, Sunday's planned Gresley Rovers / FC re-union game has been postponed until a date to be confirmed. Due to the unavailability of many of the ex-players we were hoping would be able to play, the decision was taken to re-plan the event sometime in August. However, the planned triangular tournament between Gresley Supporters Club, Burton Albion Supporters Club and a Stapenhill Vet side will go ahead kicking off around 1pm. The Social club will be open from noon.

Pitch Improvement
Pitch Improvement
Hi to all, we at the Supporters Club are trying to help with the pitch for next season. As we now have a 25% stake in the club, that figure seems a good thing to focus on. We are selling a grid of 11x11 squares totalling 121 to fans, businesses and groups who would help us raise money to improve our pitch for the 2019/20 season.
