Chairman's programme notes versus Oldham
Congratulations to our players for an excellent result on Saturday against Crewe Alexandra – it was a display which should now set the benchmark for the rest of the season.
I’m hoping that lady luck will be on our side this evening. Our previous meetings against the Latics don’t make for pleasant reading: we’ve not beaten them since 1978, although we have only met on nine occasions since then!
We take part in a competition this evening which was dismissed by some at the start of the season, but despite the format’s change, historically this competition is close to our hearts. Our Freight Rover Trophy victory in 1987 remains one of the club’s most memorable days in our proud history.
Now we are only three more games away from a potential Wembley final. Those memories from 30 years ago begin to flood back for our supporters and it would be great for the Town to be able to replicate that at some point.
Elsewhere, a reminder that you can purchase a ticket for our next home league game against Leyton Orient on Saturday 28 January and receive a FREE ticket for our following home match against Hartlepool United on Saturday 11 February.
This offer applies to all age categories and stands. We want to create an atmosphere in which our players can thrive and opposition teams fear to play in. To do this, we need to add to our already terrific fan base to take us to the next level.
Come on you Stags!!
