The Wingate & Finchley team is much bigger than 11 men on the pitch. Our Professional Club Operation could not function without our committed volunteer workforce. There are a range of areas that you can get involved, with roles to suit your time commitment. In return, we can offer various benefits, training and the opportunity to be part of a friendly team and make a difference in the local community.
"I spent the 2011-2012 season volunteering at Wingate & Finchley and I got involved with the press side of things. My work at the club included writing match previews, doing post-match interviews and helping with the match day programme.
I’m a sports journalist and my main reason for volunteering was that I wanted to get some first-hand experience of working at a football club. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Wingate.
I made some really good friends and I have great memories from last season!
There is such a nice community at the club and the volunteers really do put in so much hard work to help run it.
For anyone reading this who wants to get into the same line of work I would definitely recommend building up some work experience at the club.
I’ve found that being involved at your local team always stands out on your CV. It shows a real dedication and passion for football and it gives you a great opportunity to work on your match reporting skills.
Through my work at grassroots level, I have progressed to writing for The Voice, a national weekly newspaper, and I have been awarded accreditation to cover Premier League and Football League matches, so it is definitely a good place to start!"
