Board to meet fans
July 2, 2008
The directors of Bristol Rovers have agreed to talk to fans at a series of open meetings being staged by the Supporters Club over the next few weeks.
They have faced a lot of criticism recently for their lack of communication, particularly over the delay in the re-development of the Memorial Stadium.
But they will be joined by members of the club’s coaching staff and Supporters Club executive for the meetings at a number of locations organised by the Supporters Club. The first get-together is at the club’s Fun Day at the stadium on Sunday (6th).
Ken Masters, a Supporters Club director, said: “The meetings are open to everyone and have been arranged in the period between the start of pre season and the opening league game of the new season.
“Supporters will be able to take the opportunity to hear first hand the latest developments and plans from the football club, ask questions and express their own views and opinions in an open forum session.”
The first of these events will take place at the Club’s Open Fun Day on Sunday 6th July. Other venues have been planned to provide reasonable travelling distance for those residing in Bristol, South Gloucestershire, Gloucestershire, Weston Super Mare and NW Somerset, Bath and NE Somerset and West Wiltshire. Other than the sessions at the Fun day, all meetings will start at 7.30 in the evening.
Many thanks for cooperation and friendship to Paulton Rovers, Melksham Town and Slimbridge AFC as well as to colleagues at the Weston Branch of the Supporters Club.
Sunday’s meeting is being held in the Uplands Stand from 2.15pm.
Fans will be able to buy the new home kit at the Fun Day (noon-4pm), meet the players and there will be a fun fair in the car park, a barbecue and tombola.
The other open meetings (7.30pm) are:
Thursday 10th July Bristol Room, Memorial Stadium
Tuesday 15 July Paulton Rovers FC
Friday 18th July Slimbridge AFC
Friday 1 August The Windsor, Weston Super Mare
Monday 4th August Melksham Town FC.
