• Fotb report april 2010

    We are now approaching the last 5 games of the seasons sitting pretty in 2nd place; there is a team spirit at the club that is gelling everyone together, team, club, board and fans.

    Results since Christmas have been amazing with the team battling for every point they can get, the one statistic I know is if we win all our games we will go up automatically, Kenny Jackett has done a magnificent job in managing the team into the position we are currently in.

    Tony Craig has signed a new contract which will bolster morale in the dressing room, Kenny has assembled great squad and knows what he wants, without doubt he is the best manager we have had for a very long time
    John Berylson is pleased that the crowds have picked up as the revenue generated helps the club no end, John has managed to get his friend Dick Press to join the board, I have met Dick several times and he is a lovely man, very knowledgeable about football as he has played the game in the USA, he has worked in a broad spectrum of businesses and his business knowledge will be of great benefit to the club, I wish Dick all the best for the future on the board.
    The added numbers on the gate leads to problems regards queuing for tickets etc, the club make sure they have all tickets windows open and fully staffed, the club are trying to get more people to buy online and those that donít to arrive early to pick up their tickets, the Brentford game was pretty problematic regards queues, this was mainly because a lot of people turned up with 15 minutes to go, for the Gillingham game a lot of people bought early and turned up early and queuing was kept to a minimum causing no problems.

    The Colchester away game was a very hard game but a great result, it was my 2nd away game since I have been ill and it really cheered me up, the team play as a real unit, fighting for every ball, after the game Kenny and Robbo asked me what could be done about fans keeping the balls as this hinders the teams momentum and annoys referees, all the refs do is add on more time, I explained that there is not a lot that can be done but if we all come out and let people know it can impact the teams performance and ultimately results fans may think twice about doing it.

    Finally on a personal note I have now finished my treatment and feel like I am on the mend, thanks for everyones support.

    As always anyone has any questions drop me a line petergarston@hotmail.com
