A MESSAGE FROM CHRIS JELF

18 August 2014

Kids go free again this weekend

Firstly I would like to start off by thanking everyone for the tremendous support against Grimsby, where the attendance of over 7,000 exceeded all our expectations.

Not only was it the highest attendance in the Conference, it was higher than all games in League Two, and five matches in League One. The fact that you still turned up in those numbers, despite a difficult summer, is truly inspirational.

We know things have not started the way we would have liked, but we would love to get another fantastic crowd at the Memorial Stadium on Saturday, and as an incentive, we are offering Kids go Free for the second game in a row.

As fans, we all have a massive role to play, especially when confidence amongst the players appears to be low.

We understand that you are all hugely frustrated, and as a Board of Directors we must take responsibility for the current situation. It is very important therefore that any frustrations are aimed at the Board, and not at the players.

I know that you will continue to give the players and manager 100% positive vocal support at the Memorial Stadium for Saturday’s game.

We all know that goals win games, and we have made several attempts in the last ten days to strengthen our squad and bring a new striker to the club. I can assure you that the board will continue to support Darrell in his search for a new target man and we hope to see a new addition to the squad very soon.

Thank you again for fantastic support you have shown both home and away in our opening few games. We hope we can start to repay some of your faith with a win on Saturday.

Terms and conditions: Kids go free with a full paying adult (this includes season ticket holders). Maximum of three children per adult. A ticket must be collected in advance, as children will not be allowed through the turnstile without one. Tickets can be bought in advance from either of our two retails outlets or online. Tickets will also be available on the day from the match day ticket office. The offer is available in the South Stand and all terraced areas of the ground. Anyone who has already purchased a ticket can bring it back to our club shop and receive a refund.
