EXHIBITION: “THE MAGPIES STORY”
October 20th to February 17th 2018
In 2016/17 Maidenhead United Football Club had its most successful season ever, moving up into the National League for the new season, which has started very well. To celebrate the club’s success we are updating our exhibition The Magpies Story just in time for October half term. When the exhibition was first shown it was extremely popular – especially on days when the Maidenhead were playing at home at York Road. We hope that this revival will be equally successful. Tabletop football will appeal to youngsters of all ages.
