Awareness stall a huge success?
The stall, situated on the upper mall of the Brunswick Centre in Scarborough, was on view all day on Saturday March 22, and it is estimated nearly 900 leaflets were given out to the town's public and travelling tourists, in town for the Easter break.
The leaflets explained the progression of Scarborough Athletic from last year's birth to the present day, and also invited fans to come along to the Easter Monday game in Bridlington against Borrowash.
Club merchandise was also on sale, and over £300 was spent by passers-by, with some items of stock selling extremely well - notably hats and scarves due to the cold weather!
The club also signed more members to the Seadog Trust, the democratic supporters' group which owns and runs the club.
Club directors, along with president John Fawcett, manned the stall, chatted with and answered questions from Boro fans and those wishing to know more.
* In light of the increased interest in the club, and specifically the Bank Holiday Monday game at Queensgate, the club has arranged for a second 'Boro Bus' to leave the train station at 1.30pm to travel to Bridlington.
The club encourage as many people as possible to use the buses, which will leave after the match and arrive back in Scarborough around 5.45pm.
The buses cost £2 per adult and £1 for concessions. The game against Borrowash is free entry for all children under 16 accompanied by an adult.« Back to news
