Get involved and make a difference, just like the Media lads at AFC Totton

Volunteers play such a crucial role at clubs across all four of our Leagues.

There are so many unsung heroes doing their bit behind-the-scenes week in, week out and as well as shining a light on them, we are also aware of the need to constantly find new volunteers to get involved at our Member Clubs.

That is where the Pitching In Volunteer Hub comes in. It runs across the Trident Leagues, in association with title sponsors Pitching In.

The Hub assists all Member Clubs in generating the much-needed support of volunteers, whether it’s for day-to-day operations or just matchday roles.

You will be able to find any current vacancies that Member Clubs have all in one place as well as who to contact for further information or to apply for the position.

The survival of non-League clubs is only made possible by the fantastic number of volunteers who devote their time and energy into helping out.

If you have that time, your local club would be most grateful, and we encourage you to get in contact with them to find out how you can support them.

At AFC Totton, the club is thriving both on and off-the-pitch following promotion at the end of last season.

They have adapted to the added demands extremely well, in no small part to the team of volunteers that they have built up, particularly within their media department.

Benjy Rees is Lead Commentator on StagsRadio. He came to the club two years ago as a graduate of Solent University's Degree in Sports Journalism course. Now living in South Wales, he frequently makes the 320-mile round trip to commentate on AFC Totton home games - and the away games, too - ensuring professional quality match coverage for the listening audience of Stags fans.

Meanwhile, Ben Rochey-Adams is a local resident who played for a youth team loosely affiliated with AFC Totton in his teens. Having worked in advertising, graphic design and print, he took on the role of Matchday Programme Editor two years ago. He now travels with the team home and away, and writes long-form match reports for the club's website - as well as helping to carry the radio equipment!

There are similar opportunities across all of our Member Clubs to get involved and make a difference. Find out what’s available here:
