I’ve been delighted by the early response to our 100:400 appeal.
In just 4 days our supporters have already pledged 25% of the £40,000 total. Several people have told me that the “talk in the bar” is how we will hit the target easily- but to do that we need to see people turn talk into pledges and pledges into cash. So please let us know.
There will be a page shortly on the club’s website where people can donate directly but otherwise please tell me, Jeremy Albert or Nick Dugard at a game or email or call us. Let’s keep this thing going.
The team did their bit yesterday too. I went into the changing room before the game and explained why we were doing this push for cash – that behind it all we believe they are the team that will deliver success to our club. Three more points yesterday means we can start to dream but we have six tough games left so no getting carried away just yet.
To reinforce that the playing staff want this to be successful we are going to hold a special ‘Meet the Manager’ evening on Thursday 9 April in the Aquarium Bar. This was at Gordon’s prompting as he wants to get across to supporters how far we’ve come and how far he feels we can go. Some of the players will also come down to the club after training so we want this to be a rare opportunity for supporters to talk directly to the players and management – as I have always said we are all in this together and this type of event shows that. Please put the date in your diary.
Radio Northwick Park were at the game yesterday as well and interviewed Gordon and myself. So interest is rising, another good crowd, with an encouraging response to the England ticket offer meant a very good afternoon for all.
Let’s hope for more progress this week – on all fronts.
