Website sponsor and GDF Update
« on: August 22, 2019, 06:59:05 PM »
Website Sponsorship
The Blue & Gold Supporters’ Trust would like to express their grateful thanks to the Blackfriars Barbershop for agreeing to sponsor this website for the next 12 months.
We wish their business well and sincerely hope that they see benefit from advertising on this website.

Ground Development Fund (GF) – Update
The Trust has received communication from Stephen Cleeve expressing his appreciation for our fundraising efforts towards the GDF.  He further informed us that he has ordered the additional turnstiles required to meet the new ground grading standards.
He also attached an invoice for the required deposit.
You will be aware that it was agreed that any funds raised in the GDF (£4,052 at the time of writing) would be used towards the purchase of these turnstiles.
To that end, The Trust has forwarded a cheque for £4,052 to Stadium Solutions who will manufacture the turnstile units.
This sum covers the required deposit less the VAT.

And who is going to man any new turnstiles? Seems to be a shortage of help on a match day at the moment,club shop not being open and last week the tea hatch was closed? Are we losing volunteers? :dontknow:

Would the lack of volunteers be due to volunteers allegedly being asked to pay to get in and help? :dontknow:

I was told yesterday by some Lynn fans standing near me that quit a few people saw the cue and said that it was too long and left. ok its their loss, but also the clubs loss. Something needs to be done to get fans in quicker.

Turnstiles are not the problem, neither is the time people arrive.
The problem is, quite obviously, the stupid ticketing system.
It doesn't work!!!

So let’s assume there is 3 windows and 700 fans to sell tickets to from say 2.30-3.00.  That’s excluding those bought online and those who like to get in early( Volunteers and watching BT Sport etc). That would work out each ticket taking around 7 seconds.  Not gonna happen.  Stephen has said he is gearing the club up for the future, including bigger gates etc.   So this is one area that needs some serious address.
