Boardroom Notes – Truro City
Truro City Programme Notes
Welcome back to the Raymond McEnhill Stadium for this evening’s fixture against Truro City. Like us, they have been enjoying a successful season and tonight’s match promises to be an entertaining encounter. In November we visited Truro on an extremely wet and windy night which made it difficult for both sides, so hopefully the weather will be better this evening.
Tonight marks the end of a long stretch of seven away fixtures, which included the win at Woking in the FA Trophy. That fine performance continued our run in the competition and as you will know we have been drawn in the next round away to Darlington. Again this will be a good test for our young squad. Darlington have a fantastic stadium and quality players, but as has been demonstrated in earlier rounds Darrell and Mikey have this team well organised and we know they will be travelling north with confidence.
It will be a long journey to Darlington for our supporters, we thank the Supporters Club for organising coaches for those wishing to travel to the game. If you have not yet booked your seat on the coach then you should contact members of the Supporters Club in the Sarum Suite after tonight’s game or visit their website www.salisburycitysupporters.co.uk
Our run of six consecutive away league games has produced victories at Swindon Supermarine (2-1), Hemel Hempstead Town (3-0)and Halesowen Town (4-0); with goalless draws at Stourbridge and Evesham; and a 2-0 defeat at Weymouth.
The Board appreciates the loyal support that we have seen at all the home and away games this season. Darrell refers to the fans as being the teams “twelfth player”, the numbers going to Woking showed the fantastic following the Whites have. At all our away games it is noticeable that there are a loyal band of followers going to every game and making themselves heard and being great ambassadors for the Club.
It was, therefore, extremely disappointing to see unacceptable behaviour at our away fixture against Weymouth. We have already publicly stated that the Club totally disassociates itself with the minority element that caused the disturbance at Weymouth. The Directors and the Club will not tolerate any unacceptable behaviour and will act quickly to ban individuals from attending home games if we feel that their behaviour is likely to spoil the enjoyment of others. We are grateful for the support of Wiltshire Police, as explained in our recent statement the cost of policing home games would have a severe impact on the Club’s resources. We therefore appeal to every true Salisbury City FC supporter to assist us in our aim of making this a family friendly club.
Finally, it is good to welcome the Directors, officials, players and supporters of Truro City to our stadium, we thank them for their hospitality in November and hope they have a safe journey home.
