THEY are the fans who would not let Town die.
And their commitment to the cause of everything blue and white has finally been recognised.
A Roll of Honour was unveiled on Saturday before Town's game against Brighton at the Galpharm Stadium.
Town fan and actor Reece Dinsdale performed the honours in the Riverside Stand.
The roll, created by local businessman Dave Shaw, was commissioned by the Supporters' Trust.
Their final aim is to have the memorial placed in a Supporters' Bar inside the stadium - but for the moment it has pride of place high in the two-tier Riverside.
It bears more than 500 names of people who subscribed £100 to Town in its darkest hour.
And some well-known names are included. Among them are past and present Town favourites like Andy Booth, Jon Stead, Kenny Irons, Chris Lucketti and Jimmy Lawson.
Reece Dinsdale himself, a long-time supporter, is also on the roll, as are many of the club's most ardent fans.
Trust spokesman Robert Pepper said: "We are delighted that the Roll of Honour has finally been mounted at the stadium, albeit in a temporary location.
"It was a project which came up when the club was in dire straits."
People had been asked to subscribe to keep the club afloat - and hundreds contributed.
"The roll project was overtaken by events as the club went into administration. But the new regime approached the Supporters' Trust and handed over the responsibility of producing the roll, which we gladly did.
"Dave Shaw, a committed Town fan, undertook to produce it and has undertaken it in the very little spare time that he has."
