50 / 50 winner

Congratulations to Mike Easterbrook who receives his 50 / 50 winnings of £217 from Ray Neal at the SFC home game against Kidlington on 5th December.
SFC won 6 – 1 so a night with two great winners!

Match abandoned!

If you were at the League clash on Saturday 2nd December when Bideford visited the Ray Mac, you will remember the bad tempered game which erupted into violence, which consequently caused the game to be abandoned. Not many of us have experienced this before and it was deeply disappointing and unsettling, as it had not come from the crowd, but from the two teams. Salisbury were winning 3 – Nil and many fans thought they had played their best game of the season. More will be published soon on this, but the word is from the Club that the replay will be free of charge. We will keep you informed.

A report on the club’s website said: “The dismissal of George Colson five minutes later further soured what was a tense confrontation between the two sides and it deteriorated to the point where Mr Lamport dismissed Bideford’s Billy Tucker after 37 minutes for a second yellow card.

“The disturbance ensued as Tucker left the field and after a stoppage of six minutes and after consulting with his assistants, Mr Lamport decided to abandon the match.”

The fight and the decision to abandon the match has been met with dismay from fans on social media. 

50 / 50 Winner

Here is a delighted Chris Waters, who traveled with the Bideford fans, receiving his £319 50/50 ticket winnings from Treasurer, Bob Erskine of the Supporters Club on Saturday 2nd December. One thing worth coming for anyway Chris!

Thank you from the Chairman

THANK YOU FROM IAN HAMMOND CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD

Here is a transcript of the thank-you letter the Supporters Club received from Ian Hammond after our donation of £5,000.

Dear All,

On behalf of the Board, I would like to express my thanks for the generous donation of £5,000 given to the Club at the last home game on 11th November.
Here at the Ray Mac we know we provide the best facilities within our League, together with endeavouring to play the best football and employ the staff who can help us achieve our ambitions. Running the Club and facilities is an expensive business and whilst the Board does its very best to ensure we maintain value for money with all our expenditure, whether on maintenance or playing staff, we are heavily reliant upon our fantastic supporters whether by their attendance or donations to help finance the Club.

Your continued support, representing those fans is really appreciated, and I wish the Club (Supporters that is) its very best help and assistance to the success of the Football Club itself.

Again, many thanks for your generous donation.

Regards Ian

Ian Hammond Chair of Salisbury Football Club Ltd.
