Membership Benefits 2019

As a Members owned Football Club it is more important than ever that we grow our membership base in the coming season. You can renew using the link below:


Adult Members have voting rights so can take an active role in how the football club is run. Members have access to the private online members area and forum where you can read the monthly Club Board reports and discuss issues facing the club. You can also attend bi-annual Members forums at the ground and receive regular newsletters from the Membership team. In additions Members also receive generous discounts across a number of areas including the Club Shop, bar, away travel and room hire.

For Under 16 Members we offer free entry to all home league games, all season. This works out at just £0.36p per game!

This season we have introduced a number of new initiatives to encourage fans to sign up.

Jon Birt, Board Member and Crosskeys Bar Manager explains how the matchday bar discount will work.

“AFCRD Members can get a discount on many things and now, they can get a discount at the bar too! We are offering a discount of 20p per pint on all draught options at the bar for all club members. Just show your membership card when placing an order at the bar. We are looking to extend this further across a range of drinks in the near future too. This discount is in conjunction with our loyalty card scheme where you can claim a free pint on us when you have collected enough stamps. 

AFCRD membership discounts don’t stop there, though, with a reduced rate when booking our function room. Book the room on a Friday or Saturday night for just £30 instead of £50 when showing your active membership card. Room subject to availability.”


Members can also get Corporate Membership at Freedom Leisure who manage The Nene Centre in Thrapston and The Pemberton Leisure & Conference Centre and Splash Leisure Pool in Rushden on behalf of East Northamptonshire Council.

Commercial Director John Gregory explains “As the largest sporting club in East Northamptonshire, we are delighted to have this local tie up with Freedom Leisure for the benefit of our members. We know Freedom Leisure pride themselves on offering leisure facilities for the benefit of the community. I hope this will lead to future commercial advertising and sponsorship opportunities with Freedom Leisure.”
