Ok, so a New Season starts in the morning (as I compile this on Friday afternoon).
Have you done everything in preparation?

#OperationPromotion & Crowdfunder project; purchases made and picked-up/delivered? CHECK
Purchased the local paper (Thursday) for a 12-page preview pullout CHECK
Read the Fishy messageboard, CodAlmighty and assorted fans blogs CHECK
Various GTFC blogs uploaded on this site (some even with pix!):
- Squad analysis of ex-Trust Chair CHECK http://www.marinerstrust.co.uk/justified-optimism-or-blind-faith/

Quick reminder: Have you got your new Mariners Trust fixture calendar on display?
Kidderminster: EITHER ticket purchased (CHECK) and travel arranged (CHECK) or for those of you who can’t make it; listening arrangements (phone/radio/other) sorted?
Checked variety of sources for travel info and opposition previews? CHECK: http://www.grimsby-townfc.co.uk/news/article/1600-tickets-sold-for-opener-2598376.aspx
That’s it for the checklist….
Rob Hurst?: I like to explore cyberspace as part of the build-up to the season start, looking at GTFC-related blogs, and the national and Conference/National/non-league media to nosey at the predictions. (For a GTFC-obsessive, I know very little about our rivals.) My favourite prediction this time was in the Lincolnshire Echo which firstly predicts GTFC to win the Division, but secondly gets our manager’s name confused; presumably it was Paul Scott who left? http://www.lincolnshireecho.co.uk/National-League-predictions-Lincoln-City-rest/story-27559312-detail/story.html?
BBC Football has contributed this, but unfortunately doesn’t extend to GTFC; http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/my-premier-league-life
Summer Summary: Simply put, I’ve run out of time to write one, so how’s about this if you ain’t seen it yet; http://www.marinerstrust.co.uk/operation-promotion-medley-madness-highlights/
Here’s to a fantastic season, see ya at Kidderminster! Here we go: #operationpromotion
