  1. Sad day

    Sad day for our club. Been a supporter since mid seventies and looking forward to probably the biggest day in our history and this joy has now been tainted by uncle rons poor decision, and what's more make us the laughing stock of the football league by bringing mr sturrock back for the final. I...

    Brentford replay

    Anybody know what the away capacity is at griffin park? Given the level of opposition that awaits us in the third round i think its safe to say that we will take a full away support. Be great to take small army there on a tuesday night. If we can also beat oxford on tuesday and face orient...

    Logo Design Needed!

    As part of a slight re-brand and re-launch of The Blue Voice, we have decided we need a new logo. So who would like to design us a new logo, to go on our new website/flags & future merchandise etc? It would need to include the text "The Blue Voice" and "S.U.F.C" but other than that be as...
