View Full Version : Ballboys

What happened to the big coats that they used to be given by the club. I felt sorry for them today in the rain jackets they'd been issued. It's no wonder the numbers appear to be dwindling. C'mon BFC, look after them afterall they're all volunteers

Agree Darren.

Can we also tell them when we are 3-1 up after 88 minutes to disappear and not give the ball back to the opposition.

Isn't it some younger lads who have signed for the club who act as ball boys?

The eldest daughters boyfriend is a current ball boy and he got his position via Duke of Edinburgh awards scheme

Never mind the ballboys.
What about our disabled supporters.
The way they are left exposed to the elements is disgraceful.
Shame on you BFC. :(

totally agree Di and I've often thought this...a covered area could and sould be provided in the Cricket field stand.

A separate thread should be started for this topic!

I've got to agree, whilst I haven't experienced them at first hand, the disabled 'facilities' seem embarrassing.

Agree Dib

People who have seen my posts on that very subject,which date back to the removal of the shelters in the PL season because they obstructed the vision of able-bodied supporters,I still find truly disgusting and leaves those supports who are vulnerable the most exposed!

I have mentioned this before, it is a disgrace the way disabled supporters and their carers are exposed to the elements. Give your head a shake Hoos!

Totally agree,the disabled facilities are abysmal,was really embarrassed yesterday, felt really sorry for our disabled fans in those appalling conditions yesterday.

It's not as if disabled fans get much of a discount either. I took one of the chaps I look after on the Brighton game and he was charged 24 for the privilege. A chap who I also used to take on who moved from the away end disabled section in the PL season so he could sit with his own fans in the fabled bus shelters,only then to have any semblance of protection removed after a few games that season,paid 375 for a season ticket

Agree, we should start a campaign, there is plenty of room in the Cricket Field Stand and the Bob Lord ATM.
