Banbury United Community Football Club are delighted to announce that The Banbury Soul Club will be
moving to Banbury United and using the venue for all its events from 2019 onwards. The Banbury Soul Club
was formed in 2003 and has a great following in the town, raising money for many local charities in that time.
Banbury United Promotions Manager Mark Allitt said “I’m absolutely delighted that we’ve been able to attract
the Banbury Soul Club to Banbury United. They’re a fantastic local club, with a big following and this is the
type of club and events we want to see happening in our refurbished clubhouse. Charlie Mc and fellow DJ’s
Steve Milson, Tom Howard, Dave Gilkes, plus special guest DJ’s will be putting on monthly nights and we’re
looking forward to them getting started. They are old school DJ’s still using the proper Vinyl records which in
itself sets the club apart. The Motown and Northern Soul dance nights will be coming to the club and we’re
delighted that our sponsors and friends of Banbury Soul Club, LJ Construction, have laid a brand-new
dancefloor in the clubhouse for free. We can’t thank Ryan Jones enough for this and it just shows how
everyone is working together to get this new initiative off the ground.”
Committee member of Banbury Soul Club Charlie Mc also commented “We’re very proud and pleased to be
bringing the club to Banbury United. We think it’s important to support the football club as it’s supporter
owned and with the clubhouse and car park having been redeveloped, we are moving to a lovely venue.
Many of us used to go to discos at United in the 80’s, so it’s like coming home really!”
Ryan Jones of LJ Construction added “I’m really pleased that we’ve been able to help Banbury United and the
Soul Club to make this happen. It will benefit both parties to have the new dancefloor and as sponsors of
Banbury United and being friends of the Soul Club, we were more than delighted to get involved and provide
the new dancefloor.”
The first Soul Club event at Banbury United will be on Saturday 5 th January 2019.
