Non-league day

Post by barrowfan » Sat Sep 28, 2019 7:21 pm

Heard something over the PA today about the forthcoming non-leage day. Didn't catch it all but think they said there was a shedful of free tickets for kids and all others would be £9.00.
Anyone hear any more details?

Plenty more going on over and above the ticket offers. I’m sure barrowaberdeen will be along later to reveal all.

Be good to see some offers on the hospitality rooms otherwise a £9 admission price to the ground could have an effect on the take-up.

How far around the Furness area will the free tickets for kids extend? Just Barrow itself or wider?

Wider, 3500 free advance tickets out into Furness. You'll be hearing a lot more about it in the next couple of weeks, I hope.

It'll work out at roughly:

100 free tickets for each secondary
60 for larger primaries
30 for smaller primaries

Ian and staff have been into schools when they can. Anya has rang and spoke to every school in the area and they have all had an e-mail. From tomorrow, the office staff have a schedule and they are distributing them to schools.

Thanks to YOU (through the Trust), NG Bailey, Edmundsons and Volker Stevin sponsoring, we have managed to fund this giveaway and peg back adult tickets to £9 on the day too, it's also slightly less for 16-25's. There's also a link with the Furness Multicultural Forum and they have arranged a free 'Rock Against Hate gig in the X Bar from 6-8pm. There's a competition for schools to design T-Shirts in this vein. If you follow this link there's more detail.

What folk on this forum can do is TALK IT UP. Ring the school to ask which children are getting them, drag along workmates (It's under a tenner), bring the kids etc.

Steve, are there any posters promoting this fantastic offer? I’ll get them plastered all over the yard and pop it on the BAE intranet events section.
We didn't underestimate them, we just didn't think they were that good.

Posters no, but I'll see if I can get someone to do it. It's a good idea

Steve, All the above is fantastic, Question, Are you in contact with a local media,press, radio stations etc to really get behind this & push it heavily?

Plaster Furness with flyers to assist with awareness.

If our form continues to be good until then & with the hype-hype-hype it could be a very special day for all :skill: :scarf:

Given we have our largest expected attendance on Saturday since the Hartlepool game back in April, and lots going on all around the ground, it would be great if we could get extra help from volunteers like we did against Hartlepool.

All the tasks will be pre-match, selling programmes and raffle tickets and bucket collections for the Furness Multicultural Forum, so you wouldnt miss any of the game.

If you can help please get in touch.

Hopefully, a great day out and the team will continue to play brilliantly. However, some regular fans need to play their part by moderating their language. I have spoken to a couple of guys who are taking their children and are a bit worried about where to stand because of this issue. I personally don’t think bad language is acceptable at a sporting fixture but in this instance it could be preventing future fans attending. I would appeal to people not to use bad language as it is not nice for children to hear this and if they and their parents are put off attending the future of our club is damaged.

And change the chant to “the referees a plonker”? after a bad decision, on a more serious note it’s an intense game which brings out strong feelings in people, including managers, players etc. Maybe your better off sitting in the stand, I think it can be quieter in there.
