Worksop Town were delighted to be named the NCEL’s Programme of the Year for the 2017/18 season today.

The prestigious accolade was awarded to the Tigers’ new-look matchday magazine ‘The Fourth’ which was given a facelift at the beginning of the campaign.

With new a fresh features and design, ‘The Fourth’ knocked Bridlington Town’s seven-time award winning ‘Seasiders Review’ off the top spot as Bridlington and Barton Town Old Boys placed second.

Programme editors Jake Brown and Holly Hunt who have been responsible for the publication were thrilled to hear of the news, producing ‘The Fourth’ single-handedly along with regular contributions from stalwart Steve Jarvis.

“Worksop Town gave me the platform to take on something I always wanted to; designing and writing a whole matchday programme! It’s been one of the most stressful jobs I’ve taken on and a few broken laptops meant they’ve often gone down to the wire but staying up until 5am was all worth it,” Holly said.

Head of Media Operations Jake said ‘Great credit must go to Holly she makes my life a lot easier with the graphics and work she produces, we got together for the project in May last year and our brains have worked perfectly together to produce something we can both be very proud of’.

Big thanks must also go to Steve Jarvis for his much loved contributions throughout the season!

Preparations have already commenced on next year’s programme which we hope will live up to and exceed last season’s!

Many thanks also to The Bootiful Game for running the award in recognition of the matchday programme! And what better way to show our support for #ProgrammesMatter with the vote this month to decide whether or not the matchday programme should remain mandatory?
