The club’s steering committee met for the second time last Thursday to discuss ongoing projects and ideas ahead of the Linnets' return to National League North football and the members wish to update supporters of progress that is being made.
There has been a very pleasing uptake in shirt sponsorship with all first team shirts now sponsored.
Ryan Fryatt, Adam Marriott, Aaron Jones and Alex Street’s away shirts are also sponsored but everyone else is still available for sponsorship so please contact the club via the usual channels.
Meanwhile, work continues to secure new perimeter advertising boards.
Quotes are being obtained and we will be able to announce the venue and date for our end-of-season dinner and presentation evening shortly.
Two new club flags have been sponsored and will be flown from the flag poles on the far side of the stadium.
Finally after much debate the committee are pleased to announce that work is to begin within the next few days on the clubroom. The area will be given a lick of fresh paint along with a very exciting decor scheme which will remain a secret for now.
We are also in the process of securing old pictures of previous teams and players, as well as today’s squad which will be mounted all around the room (this will also be done in the upstairs lounges).
We are also pleased to announce that BT Sport will be available in the clubroom this season.
Committee member Mark Hearle said: "All of the committee is very keen to see the clubroom used to its full potential on a Saturday afternoon.
"At the moment it is vastly underused with people citing the reasons as to why it’s not being used. We have listened and this is a start hopefully on the road to recovery.
"With the installation of BT Sport next week we now have the opportunity to show live football again – not only on Saturday’s, but Champions League football in the week as well which people have asked for.
"The room has to be used more to supplement the income of the club. Once the initial work is completed, I would urge everyone who has not shared a drink on a matchday for a while to use the facility, which we believe will add another part to an afternoon of football at the Walks."
