It also marked the start of a new era, where we the fans can take this club by the scruff of the neck and put the community values back into it which have been missing for so, so long.
All the ideas that have come up on this forum that have fallen upon deaf ears can now be put into action as there is nothing stopping us.
As far as I can see, this club will be our responsibility as of the end of this season. Turning up in numbers v Kiddy and spending loads of money will not help, as that money will not go towards next season.
We need bucket collections (which will be organised), donations, sponsorship etc for the Canvey Island Supporters Trust which I know is being explored as we speak.
The people who care about this club (which includes everyone on here) will do whatever we can to raise the necessary funds to ensure Essex Senior League Football next season. Forget the Conference, there's no way we can fund that level of football. However, we can keep CIFC going by all pulling together.
We can do this, it's gonna take a hell of a lot of effort, many unpaid hours, sleepless nights, but when those boys in Yellow march out next year for our first game of the season, we can all look back and think that we have saved this great club.
Keep The Faith!
