BOSS Squad

25 June meeting at the club.

Getting 25,000 fans to Wembley and 3750 to Stonebridge Road to watch Swindon Supermarine (who?) shows enormous potential to get more Bums on Seats (BOS). With this in mind the Fleet Trust are launching an initiative to convert some of these “one match” supporters to swell the number of loyal fans that attend every Fleet home game.

The Fleet BOS Squad will be launched at a meeting at Stonebridge Road on Thursday the 25th June at 8.00 pm. All Fleet Supporters are welcome. You don’t need to understand the internet, belong to MyFC or the Fleet Trust but if you do fine. The only qualification is to be a Fleet supporter who cares and lives within a 5 mile radius of Stonebridge Road.

Apart from the efforts of Mark Nielson and his small band of helpers in the Town Centre there has been very little done to promote Matchdays. When did you last see a Matchday poster or Fixture List in your local shop, pub, club or take-away? Or get a leaflet through your door promoting “Friends of the Fleet”, the Fleet Trust Lottery or MyFC?

With a small team of local volunteers happy to walk their local streets for less than an hour a week in their own time we can make this happen. You don’t even need a car!! The extra exercise must be worth it.

Come to the meeting on the 25th. Your input and ideas will be essential to make sure this works.

If you are attending please phone Steve Miles on 07710 540732 (leave a message if no answer) or email him at [email protected] or send a private mail through either the MyFC or Ebbsfleet Fans Forums – user name Milesy. If you can’t attend, don’t worry, contact Steve with your ideas and confirm your willingness to help in any small way.

Alternatively speak to Jessica, Brian Glover (brianglo) or Paul Jarvis (HarryJAllstars).
