Dear Sir, Seeing as it is inevitable that once again we will not be getting promoted, means during the off season you will once again have to spend your time courting new investors.We certainly need one if not more, here are a few facts you can promote to would be investors.
1 ) Y ou can explain to them ,that with a good team their is not a shadow of doubt that the supporters would fill the stadium to excess.
2 ) given a good team ,other supporters who go to games in London ,im sure would also go to watch SUFC as it would save them money.
3 ) Show them the figures on the number of supporters whe went to watch when we played in the JPT finals at Millenium Stadium twice, also the many thousands who this year will be going to Wembley to support the team they love.
4) Show them the figures of when Southend played in the Championship, of practically full houses at every home game.
5) Prove to them the practicality of having a new home ,Fossetts Farm, a 25000 seat stadium ,which given a good team would be a full house practically every home game.
6) Show would be investors that their money would be well invested in a Town whose supporters deserve a decent team in a decent division. who have proved in the past given that they will support.
Mr Martin if you are unable to do this then YOU like the mangers who cannot perform also should make way for somebody who can.
yours sincerely
Stewart Burdett
