Supporters Group Meetings UPDATE FROM LIAISON GROUP

Lord Football

Blues on Tour
Dec 18, 2004
Sunny Southend on Sea
The Supporters Liaison Group met last night.

Sunderland game. Tickets are ONLY available for those with a purchase history. Boxes will NOT be sold to anyone who can be identified as a Sunderland supporter. The Police and Club are discussing how to handle this game, it is likely there will be a police presence inside the ground. We all agree, the FL computer did us no favours giving us the biggest club in the division on the last day of the season, at 5pm on a bank holiday weekend!

Wimbledon game. Some away supporters in the boxes caused some stupidity. Club were unaware they were Dons at the point of sale. Unfortunately, and more importantly, the away supporters coached was bricked at the junction of Fairfax and Prittlewell. The Police are looking for information. If you know anything, let them know.

Kit. We will be in a Nike kit next season. It will be based on a design submitted. We are the first club to have this arrangement with Nike. It will be unveiled around the time of Meet the Blues Day. It was understood that the away kit didn't exactly work this season, for a number of reasons. The plan is to have an away kit next year that we play in when we play away so long as it doesn't clash with the home teams kit.

Ground. An offer was put to SUFC to open up the ground and allow volunteer supporters to help with a general clean up (much like Blackpool recently did). They will consider, but there may be insurance issues. The issues listed were leaky roofs, leaky toilets, escape routes in the East. One positive is the problem disabled supporters were encountering have dissipated thanks to rerouting some of the half time queues.

Injuries. Pretty much as stated. Hopper hopes to be back pre-season, Coker possibly longer. Humphrys is hoping to be back before the end of the season, but depends on recovery time.

Half Time entertainment. No plans to remove the Bluebelles (whose job isn't just to do what they do at half time). The HT competition is now a permanent thing.

Discussions about how to improve the atmosphere in the ground (winning helps, obviously). TBV have some plans moving forward.

Season tickets. More sold in the first week this year than last. Which came as a surprise.
