SWFC vice chairman Paul Aldridge held the latest in his series of fans’ forums at Hillsborough on Wednesday and once more, the evening was a big success.
A whole range of topics were discussed in the round-the-table format with supporters, who gained a fascinating insight to the inner workings of the club.
From Financial Fair Play, media revenues and the Community Programme’s ground breaking new facility, to the catering, club finances and kit suppliers – no stone was left unturned through the discussions in Dooleys.
Wednesday fan Richard Copeland said: “Many thanks to Paul for last night’s forum. A very interesting night as always, both informative and engaging.
“The friend who I brought along for the first time was hugely impressed with the calibre of people running the club – regardless of Saturday, we’re in so much more better shape than any time in the recent past.”
Aldridge added: “We offer an open line of communication to our supporters and the forums are an integral part of that policy.
“I’m really pleased that the forums have proved so popular and I look forward to hosting more in the future.
“I would like to thank all those supporters who have taken the time to attend through the course of the season.”
Meanwhile, in the 1867 Lounge at Hillsborough, fans’ group Wednesdayite held a specially arranged ‘Hirsty’s Bar’ for the benefit of the Owls’ academy.
Compered by David Hirst and John Pearson, manager Dave Jones, players David Prutton and Giles Coke, academy manager Dean Ramsdale, development squad head coach Lee Bullen and ex-Owl Lawrie Madden were each on the panel for the sell-out occasion.
Significant funds were raised and kindly donated to the academy by Wednesdayite, a gesture for which SWFC offer their warm appreciation.
