It was worth a go. At least Dennis is prepared to try something different.

But maybe supporters would rather just chill out, relax over a beer at their own pace, rather than take part in anything official. The positive is that for the past 3 Saturday home games, theres been a healthy number of supporters (25+) drinking past 9pm. We also must have made a killing in getting the England game on, as the place was packed between 5-630pm last week.

I believe though, that we supporters have gone above and beyond the call of duty in our financial contribution to the Vale. Expecting more is simply getting greedy, and failing to focus on getting income from other sources.


It's great that there has been "25+" supporters but our average crowd is over 400. What can we do to persuade some of the other 375 to join in?

On the playing side of things we are having unbelievable success............and yet the actual numbers of supporters staying behind after a match for a while is relatively low. Even if more popped in just for a swift one, or maybe two as opposed to an all nighter then that would be great.

I certainly do not "expect more" from the usual suspects but it would be fantastic to get some new faces in.

It would Wobs, but again, if you arent a drinker, you arent going to suddenly start drinking just because the venue is different.

And besides, the idea is to get non Wealdstone people drinking in there.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who have not got it.

Your not trying to tell me though are you that we have 375 supporters who are non drinkers and just 25 who are?

We are an inclusive Social Club - we want Wealdstone supporters to use our facilities for food, drink, socialising etc and we also want local residents to use our facilities and we want people from further afield to visit for Gigs, Rock n Roll etc etc.

As most people know, we have a wide diversity of activities at the Club including keep fit, Tap Dancing, Jazzercise, Amateur Dramatics, Archery, Salsa, Jazz sessions, Tropic Gigs, Rock n Roll, private hires etc etc but that still doesn't mean that I wouldn't like to see more than 25 WFC fans using our facilities after matches or attending a function arranged by the football club.

For example, next Saturday, I am hoping that we see 50 odd people enjoying their big breakfast before they head off to Aylesbury. Those who want a drink early can have one, those who are happy with a tea or a coffee with their breakfast and toast will find that we have caffeine products readily available.

Dont want to seem 'down' on the club, but it can be bloody difficult getting a beer after the game when the Fish Bar is used for Board / Players / Guests and the Hall is used for a (much needed fund raising) function, and also a lot of fans come some distance to a game and drive, so a pint before the game is about their limit......

Is this only for FA Cup/Trophy games?
Erecting a man of straw and then blowing it down does not an iconoclast make...

Indeed.
Unfortunately as we're going to the final in both competitions we may be inconvenienced all through the season.

It would help if the main hall was open to 6pm after a match, rather than having everyone crammed into one bar.

This is not always practicable. The main hall is hired out most Saturdays for a party of some type and quite often the hirers want access earlier during the day so that they can decorate, arrange furniture, lay out food etc etc.

It is our intention to have at least 2 of the bars open whenever practicable.
