    Ours is not bad but would have been better if our stand had been open. We’ve really noticed a drop off since the temporary closure especially with the older supporters who were previously very loyal. We’ll get it resolved soon though.

    We hope and expect that the intrusive drilling will show that the stand is substantially structurally sound and that it only requires repairs to the eroded concrete on parts of the exterior along with a general facelift, clean up and repair of the drainage etc. A great deal of work has so far gone into securing in excess of £200k to fund these repairs. If the costs are higher then we are confident we can secure the extra money needed.

  10. Selkirk FC thread

    It’s clear that the vast majority of Selkirk’s debt is owed to one person who may be prepared to write that off. However there are football related debts, to former players for example that I would imagine would have to be settled before the club was able to continue in its current form in any league set up?

    Disappointing news in the short term for Gala Fairydean Rovers and bound to affect attendances during the worst of the winter months. However it is also the start of much needed restoration works which will return the stand to its former glory and improve the facility enormously. Short term pain for long term gain. https://www.bordertelegraph.com/news/17196548.iconic-galashiels-stand-is-closed-for-safety-reasons/?fbclid=IwAR0eWurrwv3d4sn8gtZHSX9BL7NyyHbQfG1APhR4uxV4cV83I3gyKe41iys

    Absolutely. The crowd at the Gala FR tie v Lossiemouth was 252...yet many of them did not pay at the gate. As it was tie of the round we had 22 young mascots, each of whom received a complimentary ticket for a parent/guardian. They stayed all day and enjoyed the match and the bouncy castles, facepainting etc laid on by the SFA. We had around 20 matchday volunteers on the day to cope with the extra stewarding that came with having the "fanzone" and the cup there for photo opportunities. Every one of them was just a supporter or volunteer in a high vis vest for the day. We have to issue tickets to ensure that we do not exceed the safe capacity of our stand regardless of whether those paid to enter or not.
