T-End expansion 100 Club Fundraiser
#11

This is a good idea. Will get signed up.

Will be good to get some estimates on likely needed cost as others have said.

Also, are there funding pots we can apply for to help? Matched funding would be excellent and make things twice as quick.

I think he should start a fans fund to improve the team before thinking of the T End .I may support that.

Yep as per my post on the FA Cup thread. Let’s not forget improving terracing similar to ours costs in the region of £1,000 per square metre.

If you remember we did try this last season and whilst we got some support, there wasn’t a huge amount and we only managed to raised around £2.5k. It’s also a very short term solution. If we want to be able to sustain a good budget in the long term then that means increasing crowds and so the stadium needs to be capable of hosting 1k+ crowds without restricting view. Anyone who would like to run their own budget booster is welcome to do so.

TM this is not a knock at you or anyone else but the point I’m making is decent squad - decent results- increases attendances allows more money for players . The other way around you have quality viewing but no one actually needing the better viewing as there is ample space for all to get a good view.

Decent squad = decent results isn’t guaranteed though. We’ve been down this road before, spending a lot of money only to miss out on promotion. How long do you keep on pumping the money in with no result before people start saying ‘I’m not paying towards the budget anymore’? The T end needs to be bigger and with a better view, end of story, the survey results speak for themselves.

Spot on. Make the facilities better and more people will come.

Make the football better. Carry on as we are at present and a bus shelter will suffice.
