Green Un 21st August 2006
August 24, 2006
Three points last Saturday gave Gasheads much more to be optimistic about, though shipping six goals at the reserves match against City at Ashton Gate on Tuesday night did little to cement the feeling that we has started our season.
This weekend saw a tough away fixture against the MK Dons, heavily fancied by the bookies in advance of the game. Despite the feelings directed by some fans towards the Dons, regarding their ‘franchise’ label, it offered a chance to go for a one and only time to the national hockey stadium, adding another stadium to the list. MK Dons are currently very close to finishing their new stadium and it looks like it will be impressive.
News out of BRSC this week continues to be of use of members and non-members of the Supporters club.
Firstly, it has just been announced that the tie away to Stockport County next month has had the kick off time changed. The match, being played on Sunday 3rd September has had the kick off time brought forward to 2.00pm, an hour earlier than originally planned. The match was due to be played on the Saturday, but due to England playing Andorra it was felt there would not be enough police to manage the game on the day, hence the change.
A useful fixture update also worth mentioning is the tie away to Torquay United, scheduled to take place on Wednesday 17th September. Torquay have been in touch this week to notify the club that ticket prices will be increased by £1 as they will need extra police on duty that night. Many Gasheads are looking forward to seeing Ian Atkins put a side together to take on Rovers and we hope to come away with all the points on that night.
<br/> Gasheads should also watch out for another Sunday fixture in November, with Barnet coming to play on Sunday 26th. Kick off is scheduled for 3.00pm.
This week the Supporters Club have also updated their online fans forum. A new domain name has been purchased and fans can now access the forum by typing www.brscforum.co.uk . A simple registration is needed and once completed you are away.
Finally, the 50/50 winner from the Grimsby match was ticket number 9978 which won £648 for a delighted fan who wrote in to thank us for his prize. Just £1 buys a ticket for the half time draw and every match we make somebody go home beaming after winning hundreds.
