It's not from the club, as a fan I put it up as a reminder. I believe this gig has been publicised by the club for at least 2 months and has been in the news paper this week. I think it will be a sell out as the band are very good, just being helpful mate.

Grrrrrrr.   As Jeff says there have been posters up at the club for 2 months. It has been on the Website for 2 months. We have spent good money on the advertiser for at least a couple of weeks. It's been advertised on Facebook since the end of June. Head against wall 

I'm sure Jim would be able to comment on the event better than me but by all accounts it's proving very popular with very few tickets left.
Can't see me being their though as I'm far to old & grumpy to enjoy it but you never know. lol!

My point exactly, this event has been well publicised by the club, and it appears this has been successful if ticket sales are good. If your not going, how come ii saw you up town buying a new pair of brogues and a crombie??

Great night down the valley tonight, the band are excellent, they are creating a good atmosphere, shame there are only 2 RUFC fans in a crowd of 50. You all come on here and moan about the club not doing this and not doing that! Now we have a good night organised with a chance to boost funds and help pay for all these superstar footballers you want to see down here winning leagues etc. and you all decide to stay at home!! Please don't come on here moaning when you can't be bothered to show your faces any time there is a good night offered. Enjoy your cocoa!!

Well said Tommo, your absolutely right. Unfortunately and unforseen I was in Berkshire till 11pm, I let Jim know and told him to sell on my ticket, this was a missed opportunity. It seems the only ideas fans will back are the free entry day ones, yes I moan but I also help the club. To only get 2 regulars is I'm afraid a joke, but hey at least people can now not moan about entry or budget.

Many fans spend hundreds of pounds a year, regularly supporting the club on match days. On top of the £10 admission, money is spent on food, programmes, in the bar etc.

But these same regular, loyal supporters should feel guilty for not attending a music event in the clubhouse? An event that perhaps they have zero interest in? We are a football club. Sorry guys, but this is an unbelievable attitude.

I agree its pathetic that people don't go to an event that they have no interest in, just because its hosted by the football club they support.

Its great that they are putting on events and I hope they do well, but its ludicrous to expect people to turn up just because they go for the football.

If anything its a good thing the majority aren't football regulars; you had 48 people to sell the club too and try and get back through the gates today. Surely that's better than the same 50 people time in, time out?

I have no interest in going to see this type of event thank you very much. It is great the club have put this event on and have advertised it successfully and it has proved a success.

But the club is a football club, the challenge we all have is we do not believe that the admission price is value for money at a tenner. Each fan will have their own interests and ideas which a lot of the time the club will not take up or other fans will not agree.

The comment about free entry I am afraid is so wide of the mark and a pretty poor effort at getting a reaction. The point made on here to the club is about non league day and using this day for the benefit of the club, it is up to the club to help themselves and I think a gate of 183 on the opening game of the season proves something.
