Chief Executive praises Boro fans for their support
In Saturday’s match day programme Chief Executive Barry Webber took time to praise the Stevenage fans, speak about the recent good form and encourage everyone to spread the word about Boro. Updated extracts from that interview can be found below:
Football is a numbers game. Four matches, 12 days, 10 points. What a time to go on your best run of the season. For that credit must go to Graham and the squad. That said, a huge thanks also to you, our fantastic fans, for the belief and backing you have shown for the Boro. You have roared us on to each and every precious point.
Confidence is high and I know the backroom staff will rightly be doing their bit to ensure focus remains.
We are well into March now and everyone is entitled to have a spring in their step. But the hard work remains. Let’s make this just the beginning of a magnificent run to the end of the season.
A priority for me is to improve communication between you and club. One way is to forge strong links with our local paper, The Comet. Through this we ran a special promotion this week to reward those who bought a ticket for Saturday’s match.
Another way is to better understand who you are and what you expect. We want to build our Boro database and from this offer promotions and deals that work for you. As I say, it is in everyone’s interests to have a full stadium – especially for the team when they run out to play to noisy and passionate support. Tell your friends, relatives and colleagues what they are missing out on. Tell them about the buzz at the Boro. We are a community club and need that community to come together like never before.
With Preston North End coming here on Tuesday, we have an ideal opportunity to make a few more teams start looking over their shoulders. I am sure they are all taking notice of what’s going on at Stevenage. We have had some great goals of late along with some heroic defending. It is the right time to be coming good.
Individuals are taking their chance to shine but it is the team that everyone is talking about. And I mean the team in the wider sense – the players, the coaches, the staff, the board and, above all, the fans.
As I said, football is a numbers game. To you, our 12th man, thanks again.
