As we said last year, securing Division One status is huge, in order to be competitive at the business end of the Championship, we need to be playing top flight football.
For the home league fixtures this year, we’ll be placing a number of banners / flags on the fence at the front of the Albany End of the ground. Flags/ banners don’t make noise, however they create a bit of colour and make the stadium more green and red so to speak. If you have any flags and banners that you want to use, why not bring them along to the Albany End. The more there are, the better the display will be. We will supply the tape / string if your flag requires some. For away fixtures, we’ll pick an end of the ground and display banners / flags there.
If you have any suggestions on how the atmosphere can be improved at home and away games, send us a message or pop down to us at the Albany End during the home League games.
In the coming weeks we will be running a supporters competition on our social media pages. There will be some fantastic prizes up for grabs. Please follow us on Twitter for further updates.
For Championship 2020, we will be running a campaign encouraging supporters to ‘Bring Back The Flags’. We will be running a competition for supporters that bring along flags / banners to a Championship game during the summer of 2020. A prize will be given for the most original and best designed flag / banner. For our championship games, we will be gathering on a designated terrace for the duration of a game. The plan and locations will be posted here and on Twitter before the game. We will have roughly ten green and red flags of different sizes to give out to supporters to use during the game. The flags can be returned to us after the game or can be kept for future games. The idea is to get like-minded supporters together on the terraces cheering our team on.
Thanks for taking the time to read and UP MAYO!
