NEWSLETTER March 2016

Chairman’s Notes We are now in the final part of the season and need a few points to make our position safe from relegation. The Committee are busy organising various functions, including our annual End of Season Presentation Dinner and an event later in the year – further details on that will follow in due course. These serve as money raising functions, as well as being good nights. We are also preparing for the £1000 Half Time 50/50 Draw for the last home game of the season. With this newsletter, you will find your membership renewal form, half time 50/50 tickets for the £1000 draw, player of the season voting slips and forms for the End of Season Presentation Dinner, details of which can be found overleaf. We hope you will continue to help boost our funds, which we use to support our Club, and look forward to seeing you at our Presentation Dinner on 28 April.

Some Members of the Supporters Club met with Steve Anderson General Manager at the Football Club on Monday 15th February. We had several areas in which we had questions to put to him, these included the new training ground, the scoreboard being able to put halftime draw results (which will happen soon) and chatted about the Academy, to which we direct some of our funds. Steve offered help to promote the Supporters Club in the future, if we can think of any ideas for match day. The meeting was beneficial for us all and we would like to thank Steve for his time. It was agreed we would have more regular meetings in the future.

Thankfully the problem has been removed and apart from regular checks all should be well. Thank you for all your kind messages of support it was a tremendous help to me, I am sure it helped with my progress.
