I think the last quiz was a Trust/FOTL collaboration? :scarf: :scarf:

Griss, the last Quiz was a Trust event, with the co-operation of the Chairman.


Well maybe the next one could be a joint venture? Far bigger circle of volunteers to help with raffle prize contributions etc? Could pave the way for many other joint ventures? :scarf: :scarf: :scarf:

I'd be in favour of retro shirts and it is a big and popular business now. I guess the problem, as for all merchandising for lower and non league clubs, is economy of scale with the purchasing. Would the club be able to justify buying enough to make the price attractive for them and us? Maybe something for Mark H to look into.

Maybe if a small shirt printing business could be linked up with then some one or two off retro shirts could be reproduced?

I didn't win the last one, contrary to all that is said I'm not a know all.   :sinking: :laughcry: :laughcry: I think there are a few who would like another one, the last one I believe raised nearly £500. :scarf:

Many sportsmen take out insurance to cover them for injury,and normally the premium they pay would cover the short term injury? Many policies will only cover up to a certain amount,and maybe his insurance has reached the limit? Being a sportsman it is very difficult to judge what cover you would need? :dontknow:

The situation at Barrow.

Makes you think.

With the pitch cover donations, I believe we need a totaliser similar to what they’ve got here, but the club have revealed this is not going to happen 😬

I personally think all supporter donations for the frost sheet and other 'capital' type equipment should go through the Blue & Gold Trust GDF account - the Trust HAVE to account for any monies received in a proper manner and they have deemed to keep this account separate from 'normal' Trust funds and transfer money to the club as and when specific projects are identified with detailed costings.  It is a real shame that the Trust have not continued fund raising for this fund for now as it was very much a win-win for both Trust and Club, fingers crossed it can be reinstated at some point in the future.



Would be nice to see it reinstated,and maybe another well supported quiz to kick it off? :cheers:

General Discussion / KIDDERMINSTER.
« on: January 26, 2020, 03:27:00 PM »
I know Kidderminster are much lower down the league than York,but they will still come to win,be nice to see this game pushed and advertised as much as the York game? We all know that they won't bring as many as York did,but we need to find as many as we had for the York game? Also with Norwich being away that day perhaps we will see the ever growing band of Canaries increase,time to give all the support possible,shout them towards the league title. :scarf: :scarf: :scarf: :scarf: :scarf:

I did the collection in the stand, along with another, and apologies for not getting around everyone as intended.

However after being told by 1 fan “the club should be paying why are we helping” and by another “why are you helping Cleeve” I finished doing the area I was in and took the money raised downstairs. I spoke to a couple of other volunteers/staff who had no issue with me not finishing the whole stand.

Once again, apologies for not getting to everyone but hopefully the collection will take place at next home game. If not Mark Hearle is at the club during the week if anyone wants to make a donation.
You lads doing great job. , shame you had to come across some negative remarks some people doesn’t get what supporting a club means  , it’s the heart and soul of communities and love to get involved .
Be interesting to see next attendance see how many will keep coming or waiting for next big game to show their faces  :dontknow:

I think a good win against Blythe on Saturday will see at least 2000 at the Kidderminster game. :scarf: :scarf: :scarf:

Amazing to see 4000+ fans at King's Lynn yesterday, not only was it the highest attendance in the league, it is also the highest attendance in the league so far for the season. Not even York have passed 4000 for a league game this season. 😀

Could anyone in their right mind see the Napier turning away people who spend all year for a handful of people who they will never see again? :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry:
