With the England match behind closed doors in Croatia, there's a few of us who'll boost that attendance for once! ;)

A great opportunity to achieve our second 1,200 plus crowd of the season.

Hopefully we can really target local youth football clubs (including our own), schools, colleges and go beyond the the usual (and effective) Twitter blitz.

It would be good to see wider poster circulation and maybe a leaflet drop. Can Bobby or a player visit 3-4 local schools or colleges and do a talk and give out some tickets.

Hopefully Hampton will bring a few more than usual too.

BW should be doing this sort of thing and more in my opinion.

He is full time is he not or am l mistaken? We should be getting a few hours a day out of him.

I mentioned this at the AGM, asking BW whether he should be going into schools as he was full time. It was said that they would look at it, but Nick Symmons was already doing similar and GB too. I am still unaware what a full time manager at a part time club does, if they don’t get involved in community projects on a weekly/ daily basis.

Problem is...BW probably has to do 2 school runs a day as it is, as well as his day a week at Reading washing cars or whatever it is he does there.

Joking aside...i too would love to know how its justified as a full time role. The directors (one anyhow) have been hammered for giving some players ridiculous contracts. Whats the difference here?

Hampton and Richmond home 13.10.18

Postby attic » Sun Oct 07, 2018 5:43 pm

Without doubt the Cup draw will be on everyone's mind but we can't let our focus drift from this big home game that will soon be upon us. Hampton are currently on form and are 4th in the league. This in spite of losing a number of players and having to throw together a team pre season. They weren't really fancied this season but it seems their manager McCann has worked wonders thus far. Never an easy game and lets just say our home record against Hampton is pretty mediocre. Added interest of course in that their starting line up will include three ex Stones. The talented but erratic Wellard and Whichelow are getting regular game time as well as the less talented and unmemorable Corcoran. Hampton have often just ran through us in the past but I do not expect this to be the case this time. We are more robust in general. We've also finally got an attacking midfielder that is a consistent threat throughout. This makes a big difference to the dynamics of the team. Just need a couple of others to come to the party and we will be a genuine contender.

Looking forward to this one.
