Match Day Thank You
In normal times one of the most popular Trust initiatives is director of the day, when a Trust member, drawn at random is invited, with a guest, to join the home and visiting directors for lunch and then on to the boardroom before watching the game in the directors’ area of the IP Office stand.
Sadly, Covid restrictions mean we are unable to do this at present so instead we have launched the Trust Match Day Thank You.
Three Trust members, again drawn at random, are contacted at the beginning of the week of a home fixture, in time to include their names in the match day programme. After the match we will send our winners the programme, a limited-edition Trust 20 2020 badge, and a car sticker. A modest thank you for your continuing support.
Rest assured, Director for the Day will be back as soon as Covid restrictions allow us to do it safely, but for now we catch up with some of those supporters who we have been delighted to thank ahead of this evening's game against Walsall.
Mark Pring has been going to games since 1977 and his favourite player over that time is Tony Kellow but Harry Holman (Junior) ran him close. His favourite tie was the Newcastle away and home games in the FA Cup run in 1981 - great days and games. He’s watching iFollow and is quietly confident and if we can win the games in hand then who knows where we might end up!
Eileen Foote has been going to games since 1950 when her dad was on a turnstile and Eileen helped him count the pennies! Eileen’s favourite player was George Hunter, a keeper and a handsome young man! Rated by some as Exeter’s best ever keeper! Her favourite game was the home League Cup game against Sheffield Wednesday in 1968 when we won 3-1. Eileen is not able to watch iFollow as she doesn’t have the necessary IT but says we’re up and down but that’s Exeter isn’t it!
Martyn (Alf) Parr has been going to games since 1960 and his favourite player is Tony Kellow. His favourite game was last season’s 4-0 home win over Plymouth, never to be forgotten! Alf’s listening to away games and watching home games as a season ticket holder. He thinks we are doing very well given the number of youngsters that are playing and they are a real credit to the club.
