Bob speaks to season ticket holders.

In further evidence of a new era of communication, Bob Dorrian has written an open letter to supporters and particularly season ticket holders now the season has ended. You can read what he has to say now on

In an upbeat message, Dorrian stresses the clubs reliance on season ticket sales and hopes for next season:-

“A strong season ticket holder base makes an enormous difference to the playing budget we can provide to the manager; season ticket prices and benefits for the 2012/13 season will be announced tomorrow, Tuesday 1 May, with tickets going on sale next Wednesday, 9 May.”

He adds:-

“David Holdsworth has been successful in the short-term targets we set him; namely to keep us up, restore professional standards and help the Board manage down the payroll. Our form over the last fifth of the season has also shown that we now have a much stronger base and are well-placed to go into next season with renewed confidence.”

If this is evidence of how the club management is to proceed henceforth then it can only be welcomed. For too long the club has been too defensive and tight lipped. This is decidedly a step in the right direction.
