Green Un 6th February

February 7, 2006


Last week saw Rovers entertaining away sides on both Tuesday evening and Saturday, giving the Supporters Club and match day volunteers plenty to do for one week.

On the subject of volunteers, regular readers may recall the Supporters Club running a campaign to recruit people to come along and offer their services. We need people in all areas, both match day and non-match day. We need programme sellers, 50/50 sellers and help on our sub committees in areas such as match day co-ordination, share scheme promotion, our commercial operation and communications set up. I am delighted to report that last Tuesday night we had somebody come forward to offer his services to the committee in any way he could. I’d like to say a big thank you to him for putting himself forward in the way he did. Many of the committee and match day volunteers have been doing it for years and as I previously stated, we need new blood. I hope YOU can help.

Anyone else with any time or skills they can offer can get in touch with me via email at and we can arrange to meet and discuss the subject further in person at your convenience.

You will also recall I wrote some weeks ago about the Supporters Club committee’s intention to hold meetings at venues away from the stadium this season.
We did this with some success last season and already we have made a booking for an evening at Yate. This will be held at Yate Town Football Club on March 14th and we thank them for offering us their clubhouse to hold the evening, which will be open to all Rovers supporters, not just Supporters Club members.

It is our intention to provide an interesting evening for all present and re-iterate the advantages of being a Supporters Club member as well as a Rovers fan. We will speak about what we are doing for Rovers supporters and how two fans directors represent us at board level. As well as the Supporters Club, there will be representatives from the Young Pirates, as well and, we hope to have management and players along for the evening and there will be an opportunity to ask questions about the football club, Supporters Club and Young Pirates.

These evenings are going to be popular and as I mentioned earlier are open to ALL Rovers fans, giving everybody a chance to find out more about their favourite club. We will be able to accommodate a maximum of 90 at Yate Town, so if you are interested in attending please register your interest at one of our shops so we have an idea of how many to expect on the night. All the details will appear here in due course as well as on our web site

Saturday also saw the latest special offer at the Supporters Club shops Pirate Leisure and 199. We are now offering the complete travel/track suit at a reduced price. When both items are purchased together there is a £10 reduction until further notice.
See the website or visit our shops for further details.

Finally, last Tuesday night’s 50/50 draw offered a prize of £813. A winner who preferred to remain anonymous claimed the prize with ticket number 39079. Saturday’s draw number is on our web site and will appear here next Monday.
More news next week.
