However well done for kicking off a proper debate on this forum.


I pay the carbon offsetting tax on planes that supposedly helps the enviroment. In other words it goes into their pockets.

Agreed, Trout, and I also don't think the club does enough to attract in locals.

To begin with matches are hardly publicised. I live in quite a new-build street, only opposite Combermere Barracks so very close: and most people here are new or recent returnees to Windsor. But until I started calling on neighbours none of them even realised there was a local club so near. It's not as though they won't come, either: I brought a group of ten to one of our last matches last season, and this year one of them's bought a season ticket... he was convinced by the football, the passion and - yes - the buzz behind the goal. Although I agree with Woody, he won't bring his children for fear they'd repeat the words they hear shouted at the pitch...

 

And letting children in - it's s obvious and we've been suggesting it for years. Never mind 'trial schemes', occasional cheap days etc: no one ever knows when these are, it's complicated, and it doesn't breed loyalty. Just make a set rule: children (say 5+) free with a paying adult, otherwise

I noticed last night in the Cri ( before i lost the ablilty to see) that they have one of the posters that were made by the supporters club a while ago advertising our away game against Gosport! Pubs are one of the key area's we should be targetting. Perhaps the supporters club could be re-started and do more along these lines.

Not so long ago we had an active supporters' club which amongst other things used to distribute fixture posters to local shops, pubs, etc. Things like that always help on the publicity side along with good coverage in the local press but, other than that, how do you publicise the club to the people of Windsor?

 

Leaflet drops work but are very expensive unless you get volunteers to do it free of charge, I work for a new company in Windsor that has just paid

The Supporters Club is still active and the members have recently been discussing ideas to boost funds within the club.

 

Firstly, we are looking into getting a new freeview box for the main bar that will allow us to show live football through Setanta (or whatever it's called).

 

Secondly, we will be looking at changing the options within the club shop so that rather tie up money with physical stock we would would be showing a selection of items and order according to the individual's size and colour choice.

 

I, and the other Supporters Club committee members will be meeting soon to discuss other ways of raising money for the club.
