Drooo will make it 52 - got a couple in the Q before him, including a great one at 50.
Keep following the SUEPA Twitter and FB pages folks, just 12 days in now and:
- 52 ex player members fully signed up with loads more promised to be on the verge of signing
- some great names signed up already (aside from Billy), such as Tilly, Peter Taylor, King Kev, Paul Byrne, Dave Martin, Dave Elliott, Flavs, McCormack, Mercer, Spenno, Moody, Crown, Cawston .........
- and Donut who by the way is being great in spreading the SUEPA word and getting others signed up
- and that bloke who put the ball in the Bury net
- plus some great names from the past you might have forgotten but make you think 'oh yeah, I remember him' eg John Linford who scored 3 in 6 on loan from Ipsh ite in the 80's and who appears in a pic which I posted up on what was (until mobile phone times in recent years) the only time since '71 that I ever took a camera to Roots Hall
- and others like Mark Hone who has got really engaged on the SUEPA thing, helps run the same for Lincoln, and who will be getting us new names he hopes (including an ex SUFC manager)
- and we've even via one old 1960's player an old cine film about the club (no, not the United We Stand thing) which we are desperate to find more out about
- and we are in contact with other ex player associations to share and learn
- plus some fans are actively out on scouting missions to get in more names for us
- and we even now have some SUEPA leaflets printed
We have circa 650 Twitter followers so far (only one porn lady) and over 250 on the Facebook page which folk are rating 'five stars'
Adam B is on the case - a quote on it all from him to be posted up this eve, the SUFC backroom staff are behind it and helping, I'll be annoying Sir Stan about it tomorrow eve, we have a double page spread in the match prog on Saturday, I gave a stumbling interview re it on BBC Essex the other day, an Echo article will follow when Mr Phillips calms down about the managerial change, and generally the banter on it all on social media is all positive with lots of folk sharing their memories when a new ex player's signing to SUEPA is posted up (all posts have a pic or two as well)
So if you are SUEPA engaged then great, if not get yourself over to Twitter/FB and follow to join in.
