The West Sussex club with a difference that's marking 40 years of football

Horsham Baptists and Ambassadors FC are celebrating 40 years of playing an active part in the town’s community.

The club, founded by the Rev Paul Brant, continues to work with families, youngsters and the more mature, to develop a love of football, played in a sporting spirit.

They have organised various events over the last twelve months, that included a 55 mile walk from Eastbourne to Horsham, via Shoreham, golf, and socials.

... and in black and white!

The year of celebration culminated in a fantastic event held at Horsham FC, where matches were held throughout the day, with some 100 players taking part, aged 14 to 60, who have played for the club over the past 40 years.

There was an evening function afterwards, which recognised the past and present, with awards, certificates and fine speeches to reminisce.

What will tomorrow brings, who knows? But the club are in good hands.
