Wanted to share with you all the launch of a fan-led initiative to give a legacy of support to our special football club. A group of us have decided to turn the negativity of the end of last season into a positive energy. It’s away from the influence of the club or the trust, but it has the blessing of both.
There will be events and details coming through over the next few days but it would be great to get you all involved in the positive way it was intended.

Cracking idea and fair play to all who have been involved in launching this, I’ll be pledging. Can’t help but think the club itself could help attract some ‘fans of the future’ by not having one of the most expensive junior admission fees in the league.

Jim, the club are working hard on things like this, we don’t see enough of it hence why we did FOTF.

Absolutely, my comment wasn’t intended to be negative or detract from the work you guys have done. I just feel that the main obstacle to getting young fans into Blundell Park consistently is the unjustifiably high ticket prices. Hopefully this scheme will help.

Absolutely. Next season we hope to raise enough to cover costs on junior season tickets and then the club can offer kid season tickets free of charge for all under 14. That’s the aim anyway.


Me and football are in a complicated relationship

Brilliant! Maybe some local businesses can sponsor this to increase funds.

Cheers - we have made sure that one of the rules throughout setting up this initiative has to remain positive about all parties involved - it is quite remarkable what can be achieved when you have a positive mindset & momentum. PLEASE could we also ask folks to use the #FOTF  when posting on social media in order that we can follow our progress? Thanks
