WHERE ARE THE MISSING MILLIONS THAT WAS MEANT FOR SPORT PURPOSES IN BICESTER. READ ON THERE IS MORE TO COME.
After 3 years we are now going to start showing the correspondence between Alfie Pickett and Tony Baldry. Please note we have more letters to follow so this was not the last letter to be written by Tony Baldry.
It is now two and a half years since the Football Club closed and the Club is still missed by many.
On the BTFC Facebook page we show pictures each week of people who used the club whether it was for Football, BTFC Aunt Sally, BTFC Golfing Club and the many other people who used the Club for their own activities.
The Club was hired by many to hold parties being birthday, engagement, christening, anniversaries, weddings or just an excuse for a party. Other football clubs used the hall and bar facilities to hold their own club presentations as they did not have premises of their own. Also other clubs hired the pitch for special matches. The Referee’s Associations used the club for their meetings. So many users of the Club.
We had also signed a Charter which joined Bardwell Boys FC, Bicester Town Colts, Bicester Town Football Club and the Oxford Football Association. A great way to integrate players into the Club.
We have some wonderful Football photos that have appeared on our Facebook page that start from the early 1900’s. That is how long the Football Club goes back in time. Back in those days they also had a thriving football club that was enjoyed by many in the town.
Now the Town of Bicester is much bigger than in those days and now there is no Town Football Club. A Club that the Town can be proud of. A Town of the size of Bicester should have its own Football Club, such a disgrace.
The Club is not forgotten at all and is still a registered Football Club. There is a party of dedicated people that are working to get the Football Club back in Bicester, again so it can be a sporting and social hub for many.
Following will be a gallery of pictures that have appeared over the last 18 months on the BTFC Facebook Page, some really great pictures.
If while looking at these photos you remember people in the photos please let us know. You may have pictures that were taken at the Club, if so, please send these in to us and we can add them to this website and the Facebook page. These photos can be sport, Aunt Sally, golfing, social. Also any stories to go with the pictures would be welcomed.
This is a way of keeping the Club alive until we get the real thing back.

Sir, As a weekly user of the Oxford Road sports facilities, I have major concerns that the users’ interests are of secondary concern to the BSA.
Your paper urges trust, but BSA resembles a self-perpetuating secret society.
Who elected the BSA committee to their roles? Do they have a constitution?
Why is the amount Tesco/Bicester Village paid BSA for the land undisclosed, and is not a matter of public record?
Why don’t BSA publish accounts for public scrutiny?
Is the BSA committee paid for its services?
Do they charge expenses?
Who vets the expenses?
What have BSA to hide?
These questions need to be answered before trust can be given.
