I had mentioned some wanted to attend a few weeks and the club were going to see if they were allowed at the training ground
Obviously decided to move it
The Interim Board have tasked me with organising a fans forum to assist them with understanding our requirements as fans as we look forward and start planning for next season.
Ben Hatton, Michael Bolingbroke and myself are all confirmed to attend. If Ian Currie is available he will attend as well.
Topics under discussion will include season ticket pricing, travel, requirements of exiles, stand allocation, communication, community engagement, the appointment of an SLO and what can be done to deliver the best matchday experience.
The forum will be held at Rowley’s on Wednesday 27th March commencing at 7pm and will strictly be by invitation only. Non-alcoholic refreshments will be provided.
In order to make the discussion as productive as possible the number of attendees will be limited to 50 to include committee members from BST, BSA, The Muckers and representatives from BASIL, Yorkshire Seasiders, Leyland and Chorley and the TKs.
Having received feedback from those groups I have allocated the places available as follows –
BST/BSA/THE MUCKERS – 4 committee places each
BASIL / YORKSHIRE / LEYLAND AND CHORLEY AND TK’s - 2 committee places each.
In addition BST/BSA/THE MUCKERS will be able to nominate up to 4 additional members each.
I require names / addresses / ages for all attendees and also an indication as to whether (boycott period aside) they have been ST holders and if so for how long.
This information is only being sought for demographic purposes.
Assuming the committee members and general members allocation is fully subscribed that brings us to 32.
I am also going to allocate one place to a disability representative (I have asked Chris Beveridge to attend or nominate).
The remaining 17 places ( and any additional places that come available if any of the groups don’t use their full allocation ) will be made available to the general fan base whether affiliated to a particular group or not.
Assuming there is sufficient interest I will look to allocate fair share to U18’s and Seniors.
Anyone other than serving committee members of the above can email me on email@example.com providing the same information I seek of the fans groups nominations to register their interest in attending . If I am over-subscribed I will draw lots.
The deadline for the nomination of the open places is Thursday next 7pm.
Hopefully I will see some of you in Burton tomorrow.
It’s very much appreciated.
9/3/19 is the day we have all being waiting for. There will likely be more BFC fans at Bloomfield Road today than at any home game since 1977 which is going to be incredible to see. I can’t believe it’s here to be honest. It seems only yesterday we first met in the Jag Lounge and formed SISA.
Despite being in the club every day over the last two weeks I’m still in awe at how quickly things have moved on. Hopefully you will see some of those changes today. All the staff at BFC and the army of volunteers deserve a huge pat on the back for all they have done.
Terry, the coaching team and the players have also been incredibly supportive.Today they will see the support they richly deserve.
On a personal level I’d like to thank every BFC fan who had played their part in bringing us to this momentous day. There are too many to mention. It’s quite humbling when you see how committed everyone has been and continues to be to the cause - most recently demonstrated by the Herculean efforts to clean the ground this week.
Now we need to move forward as one. All that’s gone before must be left in the past. Only by coming together can we make our club great again.
We have a huge task on our hands. Ben, Ian and Mike and all at BFC need our unwavering support to achieve that.
Over the last 4 years BFC fans have shown the footballing world that they are a force to be reckoned with, determinedly campaigning for change both at our club and on the national stage. Now we have the platform to show all we can do in a truly positive way.
I was asked recently when I’d say ‘ job done ‘ and I replied ‘ When away fans say that they wish their club was run like ours
Let that be the aim.
Enjoy Homecoming Day. You’ve earned it!
