The dust has only just settled on the 2017/18 campaign but preparations ahead of the new season are already well underway and we are working hard behind the scenes on a lot of projects, including recruitment of course and we expect a few new faces to arrive at The Havill Stadium – Holm Park within the next few days, if they haven’t already… so stay tuned to our website for all the news!
It’s also that time of year where we ask supporters to renew their season tickets. Prices have been frozen ahead of the 2018/19 season and our aim is to make this place a fortress. We want to create the type of home form which will propel us up the SCEFL Premier table, and it’s no coincidence that when we have larger attendances at Holm Park we have tended to perform very well.
There is no doubt that your support DOES make a difference; when the players, and indeed the staff, walk out to the noise you create, it does help give you an extra yard and when this place gets going there is nowhere else in the league quite like it. As your support grows the players gain confidence in themselves and they react accordingly.
I can assure you we, as a team, do appreciate that for many people finances are tight and it can be a struggle making a decision as to whether to renew. I firmly believe that we cannot succeed without the backing of our supporters. As a player I was always grateful for the following we got home or away, and I am exactly the same now as the manager.
Together, we are a team. From the Chairman to the management, club staff, players, supporters and volunteers we all have a part to play and, ultimately, want this club to succeed and I would urge you, if you have yet to make up your mind, to renew your season ticket and be a part of our journey during the 2018/19 season.
Thank you so much for your support. It is very much appreciated.
Up the Ites!
