MEDIA WEEKLY: Solutions and Soothsayers

22 September 2016

I'm not sure about you, but I'm still buzzing from the Northampton win - and it's lead to a rather lovely air of positivity around the Proact this week.

As seen in the picture, we even finally managed to get Mick and Jeff back together last weekend before the game, it turns out Jeff had been keeping Mick's ten pounds recently-won on the Spire Lotto safe and was finally able to hand it over in person.

EFL Whole Game Solution Survey

It was great to have the chance to find out what you all thought about the Whole Game Solution proposals - and it's fair to say that the results were clear on the matter.

From a media standpoint we thought it was important to try and put the survey across in a neutral way as possible, to attain a set of results as fair as possible. 

There's clearly one view from the EFL, another from a vocal group of EFL clubs and now as Spireites we have a set of results that show how we feel and that can now be taken forwards into official discussions on the matter, which is a great step forwards. 

Tales of the Unexpected

A couple of little stories from last Saturday, though I'll have to keep one of them nameless. In the morning before the game one of players had popped into the Casa across the road for a relaxing pre-match coffee. He had just taken his seat in the cafe there when...the entire Northampton Town squad walked in and sat down for some pre-match preparation of their own.

Should you stay or should you go? This player faced the dilemma fully kitted up in his Spireites training wear, but decided to push his head down and finish his coffee in as much peace as possible.

Then there was the pre-match soothsaying from academy manager Mark Smith. As the team sheet came out without Ched Evans's name written on it there was a fair amount of discussion in the press box as to where the home goals might come from.

That was, until 'Smudge' walked past and breezily proclaimed: "Nah, I think we'll be fine with this strike force, I fancy us to win 3-1." Bang on with that then. We shall be giving Smudge a small clothed table, a cloak and some tarot cards in the Club Superstore before the next home game, pop in if you need some help with your accy.

Your Spireites Supporters Liaison Officer

As you may have seen, we had an article up about Stephen Kerry, the club's supporter liaison officer, over the weekend. If you didn't spot it here's a link.

Every club has an SLO and we've long had one here at the club, with Stephen in the role now for a number of months. He's ready and able to help any supporter with any issue they have - positive or negative - in supporting the Spireites, so do get in touch with Stephen if you think he can make your life as a fan any better.

Roll on Bury!
