Featuring interviews with key players, coaching staff and even club president Jake Collinge, Red Kite Radio will be sharing many events.

As a regular feature, in additon to our sports reports, listeners will be able to hear regular updates on upcoming fixtures as this season draws to a close and the club has its eye firmly on a play-off place for promotion to the Evo Stick Southern Premier Division. On Saturday afternoon matchdays, there will be match reports from the ground.

From 6th April, Red Kite Radio will be played live over the sound sytem at the ground and Steve Fox's Saturday afternoon show will have features on the day's game

In the future, listen and look out for promotions and competitions with Thame United FC.
