REPRESENTATIVES of the Supporters Association had a meeting last Friday with club directors, primarily to confirm the Association’s agreement to sell the Smith Memorabilia to Dean Hoyle.
The club had already started planning to display items from Town’s history and the memorabilia will now be incorporated into those plans.
The directors also confirmed their firm intention to erect a statue, the plans for which are at an early stage. However, a steering group is in place and supporters’ input can be channelled via an HTSA member of that group.
Several other topics were discussed, including access procedures, exit strategy and stadium shares. It is hoped to post further details of these on the HTSA website at www.htsa.co.uk
There was also some discussion on the availability of the South Stand for Town fans and this will be arranged on a match-by-match basis for the rest of this season.
It is confirmed that Town fans will have access to the stand for this Saturday’s home game against Swindon with the usual arrangements in place – season-ticket holders can transfer on the day and it’s pay on the day for others.
There is some concern, though, about contravening ground regulations, which prohibit continual standing. This is beyond the club’s control and fans are urged to limit their standing as much as possible.
The club has no objection to the use of flags in this stand (or any other) but these must comply with regulations and be flame-retardant.
Whether you have a flag or not, let’s make the South Stand a wave of sound to urge the lads on to three points this Saturday!
