Here is an update on our current activity :
New Bar – In response to capacity issues in the Lower Findus Bar we have identified a new outlet which will become operational from tomorrow. The new bar is located in the kiosk just behind the catering outlet in the Imperial open corner. For the match tomorrow only bottled beer will be available and will be decanted into plastic glasses and then from the Wrexham game onwards draught beer will also be available. In addition to this we have also introduced a bottled bar into the turnstile area next to the Lower Findus Bar which will again help with meeting demand. It is looking like the Lower Findus and Upper Findus will sell out for tomorrow’s game in which case we will be implementing the policy of only allowing season ticket holders from the Lower Findus into the bar at half time and this will be on a first come first served basis. All other customers can use the new bar in the Imperial corner.
A reminder also that the Trust Bar opens at 12pm and will be showing the Arsenal v Liverpool which starts at 12.45pm . Anyone from any stand can come in before turnstiles open at 1.30pm as long as you have a valid match ticket. You then transfer to your stand from the bar

Play on the Pitch – If you are a member of the Trust you can play on the pitch at Blundell Park for FREE. On Sunday May 10th we have hired the pitch between 12pm and %pm and we will be having a number of games involving Trust members only. It doesn’t matter about age, gender or ability there will be something for everyone even walking football for seniors. To take part all you have to do is e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Safe Standing Demo – Don’t forget to take at look at the safe standing unit that will be on display at the ground tomorrow. We are very keen to have a safe standing area at Blundell Park and along with the club we are actively seeking permission to have a trial to show that standing can be managed effectively and safely. We will keep you updated on progress.
