Saints Supporters Stroll Around the City They Love! By Ian Rogers from @SaintsCityTrust

On Saturday 21st April, supporters of St Albans City Football Club will undertake a walk covering the heritage of the club by visiting various sites in the city. The walk has been organised by the Supporters Trust Chairman Ian Rogers.

“The walk will cover a brief history of the club and walk via sites of interest.  It will also mean a number of supporters will walk to our home match with Hampton & Richmond Borough rather than driving!”  Ian Rogers, Saints City Trust’s Chairman.

The walk begins at 11.00am at the junction of Belmont Hill and Holywell Hill and takes in the former Crystal Palace public house on London Road (First headquarters of the St Albans football club), the site of the former Queens Hotel in Chequer Street, Gombards Fields, and Bernards Heath, before finshing at Clarence Park, the club’s current home.

History, heritage and health are three important values for the Saints City Trust and we are delighted to be partnering with Sustainable St Albans Week.  Health walks have been a regular part of our programme of activities for a long time and we extend a warm welcome to anyone who wishes to join us, ahead of our last home game of the season.
