‘Boro’s owner and manager Spencer Day has sent out a rally cry to all supporters ahead of a week which may be key to the club securing Blue Square South football for another year.
‘Boro fell to a late goal to lose by the odd goal in three at The Rushmoor Stadium to Dorchester Town on Saturday,and now face two real “six pointers” in the next seven days, hosting a resurgent Hampton & Richmond Borough who are unbeaten in the last six outings on Saturday, before travelling to Maidenhead United on Easter Monday who have not won in the last seven games.
Day believes that four points over the Easter period would be enough to secure safety, even factoring in a potential five point deduction, which frustratingly still appears no nearer to being resolved, the club still waiting to hear the date of an appeal.
The club have confirmed that the reduced pricing structure will remain in place for the remaining two home fixtures of the season and Day is urging supporters to get behind ‘Boro both home and away for the final run in ” The attendances of late have been notably down on recent seasons despite the club reducing entry, the regular supporters have been fantastic, and I would urge all supporters to spread the word of the dates of our last two fixtures and encourage people who you know have been before and any potential newcomers to come down and support the side.”
In the advent of a more open club Day has also declared that tomorrow nights (Tuesday) training session will be open door, allowing supporters to come down and watch the session.
Supporters can view the training which will commence from 7pm from the Charles Mortimore Stand, and the Platinum Lounge bar will be open, Day himself will be in the stand from 8-9pm and will happily field questions from supporters.
He added “I have always stated that we need an open relationship with our supporters and I look forward to seeing many here tomorrow night, as always I will answer any questions honestly, although supporters will have to appreciate that there may be some subjects which will have to remain confidential.”
Supporters wishing to support ‘Boro on their travels are reminded that FaSt arrange coaches to away matches and should contact Dave Workman on 07786 625773 for bookings or further information.
