Copied from Pie & Bovril

View Post Yoss, on 01 July 2012 - 09:41, said:
Right, I'm about to head out for the day, but just before I leave I'm going to throw in this idea.

My relationship with the club has been strengthened by their stance over the past few days, and over time that will of course be reflected financially in one way and another. But I know they're tight for cash right away, so I was trying to think of some way of making an immediate and concrete gesture to show my support.

One idea I've come up with - we've got this game at Wick coming up, something myself and a lot of the matchgoing fans are well chuffed about and looking forward to. But for the club it's the worst draw they could have got financially, a significant extra cost they could have done without. So how about we have a whip-round (probably best done via the Trust, or somesuch) to see if we can sponsor that specific cost for them. I'd imagine it'd be in the region of a four figure sum but we can mail the club for costings if need be.

Not only would it help the club, it'd be a very visible demonstration of loyalty and support for their stance, both to the club itself and to the wider world. There's been a fair amount of focus on us this week - and on the relationships between clubs and their supporters more generally. If we were able to do something quickly and tie it directly and explicitly to our support for their stance then it'd be something we could publicise and I expect there are at least some corners of the press would be happy to mention it.

Does that seem like a plausible idea? FanTalk would have been a better place for this, but I don't have an account there. If it looks like it might catch on I'd invite someone to transfer the post across.

Happy to start with a pledge of 100, though I wouldn't be expecting others to put up that much. If enough people could find ten or twenty I'd hope it ought to be doable.

If anyone has any other ideas then please, fire away.



The 'Support Rovers' account was set up by David Wann and myself is still active and can be used for an individuals wanting to pledge some additional support.

I havent a Pie & Bovril account so I'd appreciate if Bank Account details could posted on the thread.

Also those with access to the Facebook page and Fifes Finest if they can do like wise.

I'd be quite interested to know the total of this and where donations have been made from. I think if the totals could be published we could use it to advertise the club a bit more.

People on pie and bov are falling over themselves in their admiration for us and Turnbull in particular, we need to seize this opportunity.

Right, I've posted a few times over on Pie and Bovril to raise awareness of this, I'm also going to PM you 12th man.

It really would be excellent if the media could get a hold of this.

Just an update I have been in contact with Yoss and he is good with moving his post over from P & B. The Account details have now been posted on P & B and Iain Latto has contacted the tabaloids and also Jim Spence so its hopeful that we can get some awareness from that.
I have emailed David Wann regarding both providing an update to how much funds are going into the Account and also hopefully getting something on the Main site.

If anyone can get something up on the Facebook site and do any similar stuff to help spread the word that would be helpful.

Can someone twitter mathew elder ?

Just had a reply from Dave Wann he advises that there has been a significant increase in activity with 335.00 being deposited over the last few days, he confirms that he will keep us updated on a regular basis.
There will also be something on the Main site Friday.
