We are on the crest of a small wave just now and the buzz and feel-good factor around the club is palpable.
Now is the time, however, to work even harder and maintain our high standards as we set our sights on a top seven finish at the end of the season.
The business conducted in the January transfer window has had an immediate impact on our results, and I am pleased to see so many of the new faces settling into our club so quickly.
As eight players have come through the door, as many have exited One Call Stadium, including the loan transfer of Jack Thomas to Barrow.
I single out Jack in this column because I know our supporters have a special place for local boys who progress through the system and into the first team, like Jack has done in recent years. With that
noted, the competition for places has increased with the additional quality in players who we have signed, and subsequently Jack feels it would be of benefit to head out on loan to get some much-needed match minutes.
I’m sure the experience under our former manager Paul Cox will be of benefit to him before he returns to One Call Stadium in the summer.
In other news, you will have surely seen by now our ‘Buy one get one FREE’ ticket offer available for the next two home games against Accrington Stanley and Newport County.
Buy a ticket for the Accrington match and you’ll receive a FREE ticket for the next game against Newport. Our ticket office is open until 5.15pm today for you to obtain your tickets.
I should also remind our supporters that the Kevin Bird Suite is open on a home matchday from 12 noon to those of you sitting in blocks M to Q in the Ian Greaves Upper Tier. Matchday food will be served from 12noon also. Fans must have a season ticket card/match ticket in the above-mentioned blocks of the Ian Greaves Stand Upper Tier to gain entry, however. The room is also available at half-time. Supporters who wish to use the facility, but exit temporarily to have a cigarette, will be given a wristband. Re-entry will not be permitted without a wristband.
Your support towards Steve Evans and his new-look squad has been superb. We’ll need that same level of vocal backing and encouragement from now until the very last whistle if we are to aid these players fully in
our promotion push.
Come on you Stags!
