    Fan engagement & Graham Westley

    Most of you are probably aware of the great work Ryan Murrant does, especially with the young fans etc. Each game on Twitter he asks for fans of both clubs if they want the opportunity to come and sit in the dug outs whilst teams are warming up, have photos etc. Phil Brown and the lads did their...
  2. Napster


    After a bit of miscommunication between Ryan Murrant and me on twitter, where he thinks the Fan Experience Co is some kind of visionary, despite a) it being done in the US for years and b) GK doing it years before in other areas, I acknowledged yes he's right, it is important and yes it's great...

    Whilst we are in a moaning mood - Steve Kavanagh, is he a success?

    Chatting with fellow fans last night, Steve Kavanagh was mentioned as we questioned what he actually has contributed to the playing success of the club. What is his actual role, I seem to recall he was responsible for the success on and off the pitch the pitch and in building...

    Engaging with the club's supporters

    Interesting article here from Supporters Direct on fan engagement, we've brought in the idea of "buying" the opportunity to lead the teams out this season, but what other ideas could we suggest for Roots Hall? You’ll have heard a lot this season on the disconnect between supporters and clubs...

    Trust & ShrimperZone Meeting with Ron Martin

    Ken Jarvis representing ShrimperZone and I (Paul FitzGerald) met with Ron Martin on Tuesday night to try to clarify the state of the clubs finances and the status of the FF development. Not hugely surprising but our meeting with Ron turned into a double act. Steve Kavanagh came across well...

    Coaching for kids - help please!

    Shrimpers I need your help! I am currently doing my FA coaching badges and will soon be seeking football volunteering opportunities with children up to the age of ten or eleven (I have plucked this figure from the air so I am open to suggestions!). I am 24 years old and my relatively short...

    Death Penalty vote back in the forefront

    According to Sky News, MPs may be about to debate the reintroduction of the death penalty: With the vast improvements in DNA and forensic findings, is it time for a more up to date viewpoint from the cross section of SZ posters at large? For myself, I believe that if the evidence is 100%...

    Blair: Gaza's great betrayer

    It's more than a year since Israel launched its immoral attack on Gaza and Palestinians are still living on the verge of a humanitarian disaster. So what has Tony Blair done to further peace in the region? Virtually nothing, argues the historian Avi Shlaim Comments (98) Buzz up! Digg it Avi...

    Time for another battle. The rules of engagement for this one are: 1)Participants must be or have been a recognised sportswoman at a reasonably high level. For example, Audrey Tatou is not eligible, even if she may once have run in the 100m for her school. If your nomination is someone not...

    Thoughts - 30th Birthday Party

    Good people of ShrimperZone, I come to you looking for some inspiration. Basically it's my missus 30th next week, and it's mine in a couple of months. Now we've spent a fair whack over the summer and therefore had decided to scrap any thoughts we had on having a joint party. Next week was...

    Question At what time in your life were you truly terrified?

    I've been scared many times - first time you find out you're going to be a parent (especially when you're still at school) is a frightening moment, but there's plenty of joy mixed in. I would have to say my first live engagement in the Gulf. You think you're ready after months of training but...

    Seaside MK-Donkeys- a match report

    So very very cold today Well what can I say Cole got offficial man of the match but Freddy was the best player on the pitch by a mile. Dodgy penalty decision, ball to elbow as opposed to hand to ball. Fantastic miss though, the only thing to get a bigger cheer was the announcement of...
  15. Suffolk Shrimper In Dorset


    Last banged on about this idea pre Yeovil game....apparently parties were enthusiastic but she had a prior engagement. Well, what about trying to sort something out now? Maybe need to wait for the fixtures to come out, then give her the list & ask her to take her pick. As a True Blue...
