A brief update from Forever Bury. More to follow. If anybody wants any information about FB, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or pop into the Cabin before or after any home match.
Early in February, we emailed Karl Evans with questions from our membe’s, and on Friday 24 Feb we met with Karl to discuss the responses. These are attached with FB comments in red. Please send in your questions for March to be received by the end of February.
We’ve now had 2 formal meetings with Karl. As stated within the attachment, talk is cheap, but Karl really does come across as being most sincere in his passion for football, and his desire to engage with all supporters of Bury FC. He does appear to want to get to the core of the fans, bring BFC to the public, and develop a strong fan base. No reason at all to doubt his desire. What has been pointed out to him, is this is something which FB has championing for years, something which the current Board of directors, despite the occasional soundbite, appear to dismiss, and something which must be planned, and kept on top of for a period of time, 5 years at least, not dropped after 12 months or so. We shall see….
Within our meeting on 24 Feb, we also discussed:-
the role of the SLO and what that entails, both currently, and how it may develop in the future
fans forums – a Q&A with the manager, Lee Clark is being planned
supporters experiences at match days
the Community Trust and how the 3 departments of the Club ie the Community Trust, Forever Bury and Bury FC itself (commercial activities)should be working together for the common aim of promoting the name of BFC
the number of staff employed by the Club on both the playing and non playing sides.
Future Player of the Season Award presentations
Further Junior FB Ground Tours and Pre season Fun Days to which the CEO added watching a players training session
