Our Club Committee

The names and faces behind Higham Town Football Club

The core and usually forgotten component of any good club is its committee.  We are blessed with a very keen group of individuals who take time out of their lives to help run key aspects within the football club.  You may see them in and around the club at times, feel free to come say hello!

HELP WANTED: We are always looking for new members, however, currently, we are in need of energetic fundraisers to work with the committee (or even form their own subcommittee) to help towards our big re-build project.  If you are interested in taking this challenge on, please contact us.
