Hi All

Thanks to all that came to Morecambe last Saturday - it was a good team performance and a great result to give the fans a much better trip home, either on Saturday night or those who stayed over until Sunday. From our point of view, it was a great weekend, everything went to roughtly planned timings with the only delay encountered was on the M6 from junctions 17 to 19, then getting through Lancaster - which is always a nightmare. Arrived at the Clifton Hotel for 12.30pm, booked in and had a quick drink and piece of birthday cake in the bar before heading to the game, again via a couple of other local pubs who were showing the lunchtime matches on TV.

Everyone of the visiting fans that travelled, those listening or reading the text commentary went through all emotions possible - especially in the last 20 minutes - a game that we will never forget. The team deserved the standing ovation they got and Ali Yussuf well deserved the "man of the match" with his victory inspired substitute appearance. He now has his own fans song, that hopefully will be sung at the home game on Tuesday evening against Colchester. Dermot Drummy will have a selection problem for this game I'm sure.    

With Morecambe now out of the way, we now need you to start booking on for the next overnight trip to Carlisle United on Saturday 29th October, we have rooms available at the Clifton, again in Morecambe, and have 21 already booked on, including 7 who couldn't make last weekends trip. See details below. For those who went Saturday, we can reduce your Carlisle cost by £10.00 so now it will be £55.00 for the trip as we didn't take the coach which saved us making a loss - so the saving we can pass that on to you.

With now two home games next, we could see the Red Devils move even closer to the top of the league - very few points separate the top 11 places - wins against Colchester and on Saturday against Blackpool with do the club no harm at all and hopefully will boost future attendances, especially with the reduction of entrance fees for the under 16's now £4.00 and under 11's - £1.00. You can't fault this new initiative by the club to bring support through the turnstiles which the previous regime failed to do.

Now only 6 seats remaining on the coach to CHARLTON ATHLETIC  

The coach to Charlton Athletic will now run to the game - as of today we have 44 booked for the first trip the Valley - if you want to travel to the game please contact Alain or Patrick to book on.

We may if we fill up our normal coach to either put a larger capacity one on or possibly a second coach, but would need at least another 40 supporters to book on for that to happen. We still have 2 weeks before we travel so you never know.  We will keep updating to let you know what is happening.

GH Christmas Dinner - 10 booked todate

It’s getting to that time when we start organising the GH Christmas Dinner; again we are looking at the Black Swan, Pease Pottage for Saturday 17th December when we are at home to Newport County in the afternoon. If you are interested in joining us, we had 30+ on our previous dinners, then let me know – we will organise the meal from the 3 course £20.00 (rounded up by a penny) Christmas Celebration menu, however, you can still order food from the main menu but it could cost you extra, depending what you have. The evening is open to partners as well; however football discussion is band unless we won of course.


As last time; we will get the menus in plenty of time so that you can order your meal before the day – The Black Swan generally require our choices about 2 weeks before – don’t worry about remembering we will have records on the day, so we can remind you. We will book the tables for 7.30 for the meal, but start arriving at 7.00pm so you can have a pre-drink.
