I was recently contacted by Supporters Direct with a request to help advise Blackpool Supporters Trust. This followed the recent events at Bloomfield Road concerning the club and its current problems.
The group were looking to set up a team of volunteers to help around the stadium in between matches and wanted some advice concerning the legal, safety and practical aspects of creating one.
Between Ian Darler and myself we were able,I hope, to provide the necessary information.
I would like to wish the Blackpool Supporters Trust all the very best in the future. They have worked so hard to achieve their aims. Hopefully now they will be able to unite the club following the recent unrest and ensure the club has a brighter and more positive future. It won't be easy; however they have the fight and will to achieve it.
Before our recent matches against Tranmere and Stevenage I have been able to show the visiting SLOs around our ground. It is always good to have opportunities to compare how different clubs see the role of SLO. So we discussed what each other is doing and in addition we shared what projects we are currently undertaking and what we have already achieved.
