You may have noticed KFIB has been a bit quiet of late.
Following the threat of Basingstoke Town FC moving 19 miles out of the town to play at Farnborough KFIB had been working hard to ensure that football remained in Basingstoke.
Following conversations with club officials (and threats of restraining/banning orders), Basingstoke Council, planning departments and pulling supporters together, we finally achieved our goal of keeping football in Basingstoke. The female team will play at the Hampshire FA in Winklebury, whilst the male first team will remain at The Camrose (for now). Speculation has been made about how long this will be for of course, but it finally looks like the club is on the right path to being handed back to the true owners – BTFC supporters.
As a result of achieving our main objective and mission, KFIB will be disbanding. We will of course be getting 100% behind the supporters club and keeping an eye over proceedings.
We wish to take this opportunity to also thank everyone that supported the campaign – from the fans, councillors and local businesses
