A message from our Chair - David Durbin
Firstly on behalf of your Supporters Trust Board, I would like to thank you all for your support over this last year. Your generosity has been exceptional and I hope we can count on it going into the new season.
Your memberships, attending our events, entering the meal deal, joining Steve’s fantasy league and giving to our match day bucket collections will all continue to play a vital part in our fundraising.We will again be selling vintage/retro shirts at home on match days and of course if you have any you wish to donate they will be gratefully received.We are also working on adding additional benefits to being a member of the Trust!
As you may be aware we are investigating the purchase of a new digital scoreboard for the ground which will be of benefit to the Club and all our supporters.We have already met with two suppliers and are awaiting for their proposals.In honesty these do not come cheap and it is unlikely that it will be in place for this next season.However we will continue putting all our efforts in making it a reality as soon as we have the funds in place.I’m confident that with your support this will be sooner rather than later.
As we head into the new season it’s time to get behind the new Board,Simon and the team.Don’t forget we are the 18th man,the Blue and White Army and that can make all the difference!
The future’s bright it’s BLUE AND WHITE!!
A Message from the Treasurer - Maureen Booth
The Trust were proud to continue its sponsorship of the Reserve Squad and would like to thank all our fans for their support and generosity. We thank all who had sponsored the Team, and also 3 of the home games. We were also able to sell shirts from previous seasons, (raiding Hilda’s cupboard!) plus auctioning a shirt signed by the 1987 Cup Winning Team, all raising a substantial amount. We were been able to increase our number of Raffles last year and we thank the Club for allowing us to do this.
Once again we were indebted to Peter McNamara for his on-going support of our Quiz Nights and the Fun Day at the Ivy House, and likewise to Neil Arber for his continuing contributions from his Away Coach Travel and Club 1873. Neil has also paid for a part of the away travel for the Reserves directly from this income. Thanks also to Stephen Thomas for continuing his Fantasy RL, all who helped on the Market Stall, and Donations given by supporters. Others to thank include Hilda’s Every Penny Counts and Sue’s Meal Deal.
Not to be forgotten are our loyal fans, who regularly chip into our Blue Buckets on match days and contribute in many other ways, including monthly Membership payments of varying amounts.
