Welcome to the start of another calendar year which we hope will be a memorable one for all Mariners fans. It’s hard to think from a Trust point of view that 2016 can be as successful as 2015 but we will do our very best. Our first priority for the new year will be to sort out the events still outstanding from Operation Promotion ie Fish & Chips with Paul and Chris, alternative ground tour  with Lloyd and the Lloyd celebrity football match. For the latter we are looking at the weekend of 21/22 May as we know the pitch is deinateley available because we have already booked it for the weekend. We are also aware that we need to catch up a bit on memberships and we will be sorting that out during January. Following a suggestion at the AGM we are also looking at ways of simplifying the membership scheme to ease the administration burden which is now considerable.

In terms of events the first one up in 2016 is a quiz night on Friday 29th January in the Trust bar starting at 7.30pm. Entry is £5 per team (max 4 players) and the format for this one will be in the form of bingo which will give everyone a chance to win a prize and makes it suitable for all ages and abilities. There will also be a number of spot prizes. The evening will also incorporate the draw for the FA cup draw tickets we have been selling. There will be 32 winners and the person who is allocated the eventual F A Cup winners will pick up at least £500.
