Had an email from Dave Roberts saying as a Season Ticket Holder I have been selected as a ball retriever for the Carlisle game tomorrow if I want to.

Is this legit. There is a link to click for a health screen. I am always suspicious on clicking on these sort of links.

Anyone else had one?

If there was another spot going, could this perhaps be auctioned for the just giving thing?

Can you go for a pint first and rock up at 2:55 as usual, stand in the corner at half time moaning about the first half and the weather whilst checking scores of games that mean intercourse all to us?

In all seriousness, I’m assuming as it doesn’t say anything, this is for ALL season ticket holders not just trust members?

Well, I've not actually seen a ball being "retrieved" very often with much conviction over the last few seasons, so I hope you will take the role very seriously!

We could have 1000 ball retrievers, 500 mighty mariners, even 100 match day mascots, in fact the list could be endless.

My thoughts exactly, i expect anyone in the role to sit chatting to the nearest retreiver ignoring the ball completely.


On a serious note though, i am sure that one of the F.A guidance notes asks for the balls to be sanitised at intervals during play so wonder if you will be expected to wipe the ball down once/whilst retreiving.

I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,

I did it on Tuesday night, everyone receives sanitising wipes, gloves and bin bags. They are told which stand to sit in and then just return the balls after sanitising them. Tickets are drawn at random now. UTMM

That’s a point, in the upper Findus even with my knackered knees I could do the job, possibly only required once a game.

When it comes to draws etc.. If I fell in a barrel of mammaries I’d come out sucking my thumb so I’ll doubt my number will come up but I’m really pleased for anyone who’s lucky enough to get to see a game.

I believe this has been knocked on the head with the implementation of yet more inconsistent ‘rules’...

I remember when we was kids we used to go watch the reserve games and had the free run of the entire ground , when the ball went over one of the open corners we used to go collect it and run off home with it .
Had some great Mitre Deltas thanks to the poor shooting of our reserves
