A note from the Chairman

7 April 2017

Ken Anderson addresses the club's supporters in his latest website column

The euphoria from Tuesday night’s last-gasp victory at Southend United was tempered somewhat 24 hours later when Fleetwood Town and Sheffield United picked up wins.


Those results – particularly Fleetwood’s – served to remind everybody that there is still a job to do in order for us to achieve our target of automatic promotion.

 

The manager and all the players subscribe to this school of thought and are treating each game as it comes. Indeed, there are five cup finals remaining and 15 points to play for, and our focus cannot be distracted by what other teams are doing. 


As I keep saying, there will be twists and turns along the way but ultimately our destiny is in our own hands.

 

We travel to Scunthorpe United tomorrow for yet another tough test on our travels and, once again, we will be backed by a superb following of Wanderers fans. 


Again we have sold our entire allocation of tickets, and your support has never been as crucial. It’s been fantastic all season – and I have to mention specifically the 600 plus fans who made the trip to Southend in midweek which was nothing short of phenomenal.

 

Our next game after Scunthorpe sees us make the short journey to Oldham and I was pleased to learn yesterday that we will be taking around 4,300 fans there. I can tell you that the staff and players greatly value this level of support. It does make a huge difference.

 

Each and every one of you has a crucial role to play, both on our travels and for the final two games at Macron Stadium.

 

Let your friends, family and colleagues know about the games against Bury on Tuesday 18 April and Peterborough United on Sunday 30 April, and also about our special offers on replica kit. By raising the noise levels at Macron Stadium and by wearing your BWFC shirts with pride, you will make a difference.

 

It was pleasing to hear the news today that Phil Parkinson and Filipe Morais have won the Sky Bet League One Manager of the Month and Player of the Month awards respectively. 


It is a fitting tribute to the team’s stunning performances in March. These accolades are the latest in a long line of awards the club has won this season to acknowledge our great form – and long may they continue!


Finally, I would also like to congratulate Phil who will tomorrow take charge of his 50th game since he joined the club last summer. With lots of happy memories already made along the way, here's hoping for plenty more in the future, starting with Saturday's game!

 

Let’s be loud, let’s be proud and let’s get behind the boys tomorrow and for the rest of the campaign.

 
Kind regards,
 
Ken
