SUPPORTERS CLUB PLAYER AWARDS 2019/20

15 September 2020

 


Our 2019/20 Supporters Club player awards were handed on to the club last week, so that they can be passed on to the players concerned.

This years Nottingham Forest Supporters Club Player of the Season award went to Matty Cash. Matty dropped into the right back position at the start of the season after the unfortunate injury to Tendayi Darikwa and made the position his own, consistently gaining acclaim for his performances throughout the season. So much so that he was signed by Premier League Aston Villa earlier this month.

The David Howard Award went to Brice Samba, who we signed from Caen last summer. Brice went on to play 43 times for the Reds, keeping 16 clean sheets, and being honoured by the PFA in their Team of the Year earlier this month.

Branch player of the season awards were also passed on to the club and are as follows;

Gedliing - 
Matty Cash

Charnwood - Matty Cash

South West & M5 - Matty Cash

Awards were also passed on to Lewis Grabban and Ben Watson from the Charnwood and Gedling branches respectively.

CHAMPS & CHUMPS COMPETITION

13 June 2020

 



This week will see the Premier League and Championship resume their respective 2019/20 seasons, so we thought it would be the perfect time to update you on the Champs & Chumps competition.
 
Even with League 1 & 2 coming to a premature end, with promotion and relegation being decided through points per game, it is still all to play for with only a handful of points separating the top spots in the table. David Taylor from the Grantham Branch tops the table, but with only the slenderest of leads can he hold on to it until the end of the season?

CHAMPS & CHUMPS COMPETITION

10 March 2020

 



Our final Champs Chumps competition update before the end of season has Julian Walburn of the South Coast Branch hanging on to the top spot, but with him being only 1 point clear its only by the slenderest of margins. Can Julian hold on until May, or will he be pipped to the poist by the chasing pack?

FEEDBACK SOUGHT FOR CITY GROUND REDEVELOPMENT

18 February 2020


As we are sure you are aware, the football club is in the process of applying for planning permission to redevelop the Peter Taylor Stand, and they are looking for your comments and support as the planning process draws to a close.

Back in February of last year Nottingham Forest unveiled exciting plans to build a new state of the art Peter Taylor Stand which would not only raise the capacity of the City Ground, but also provide far superior facilities for Forest fans of all ages and abilities for years to come.
As the planning process goes into its final stages we are asking our members for their input at this crucial time, whether that be comments on the design of the stand or simply messages of support for the redevelopment.

You can comment directly on the plans by clicking here and following the options provided, or if you would rather comment through the supporters club you can email Joan Bakewell at joanbakewell@ntlworld.com or in writing to her at 12 Grange Crescent, Gedling, Nottingham, NG4 4BX.

 
 


SUPPORTERS CLUB BADGE COMPETITION

14 February 2020

 

This season's winning badge design.
 

Nottingham Forest Supporters Club are looking for its junior members to help design our new pin badge for next season’s membership packs.

Each season our membership packs include a metal pin badge which is designed specifically for that season. For next season, we are asking our junior members to send us their designs for the badge which will be worn with pride by Forest fans all over the world.

The only rules are that you must be a member of Nottingham Forest Supporters Club who is under the age of 18. The design must include the words ‘NFSC’ or ‘Nottingham Forest Supporters Club’ and which season the badge is for, which in this case is the 2020-21 season. All badge design entries must be drawn by hand and posted to Joan Bakewell at 12 Grange Crescent, Gedling, Nottingham, NG4 4BX with the name and branch of the entrant on the reverse.

The closing date for entries is the 17th of March 2020 and there will be a prize for the winning entrant, which we will announce later in the season.

CHAMPS & CHUMPS COMPETITION

BIRTHDAY SURPRISE FOR GRANTHAM BRANCH CHAIRMAN

19 November 2019



Grantham branch Chairman Bob Taylor with Chris Cohen and his famous black book.
 

The Grantham branch of Nottingham Forest Supporters Club had a very special surprise for their Chairman Bob Taylor earlier this month to celebrate his 80th birthday. Trevor Hall from the Grantham branch tells us more.

Around 100 Forest fans old and new, most of them featuring somewhere in Bob’s famous Black Book, turned up in secret on the occasion of his 80th Birthday, to surprise Nottingham Forest Supporters Club’s Grantham Branch chairman Bob Taylor after November’s committee meeting.  Bob has been Chairman of the Branch and responsible for running all of the home and away coaches for around 40 years. ‘Bob’s Bus’ as it is known far and wide, even features several times in the novel ‘FAN’ written by former branch member and author Danny Rhodes.

Bob is held in great affection by hundreds, if not thousands of current and former branch members, and a few tales were told of his escapades following Forest, including one about him being interviewed by MI5 after a Forest European game in Berlin.

Former Forest captain Chris Cohen came along to present Bob with a certificate that will see a plaque dedicated to him from ‘Bob’s Bus’, attached to the Forest Anniversary Wall later this year.  The committee also arranged a cake for him decorated with the Forest logo and words from the popular Forest song, “Far Have I Travelled, Much Have I Seen”.

Bob was visibly moved, and was amazed that so many had come just for him, and stated that he had no idea of the surprise in store for him.

Bob still runs the coaches every week, and long may it continue... Happy Birthday Bob.

We would like to join the Grantham branch in wishing Bob a happy birthday from all of us at Nottingham Forest Supporters Club. If you would like to travel to a game with any of our branches which offer coach travel, go to the Coach Travel
section of our website.

MANSFIELD WALKING FC COMPLETE ITALIAN JOB

18 October 2019




The complete squad from Mansfield Senior Reds before they flew back from Italy.



The Mansfield Branch of the Nottingham Forest Supporters Club have been running a successful walking football team for a number of years. Branch Secretary Peter Mitchell gives us an update on their recent activities.

Mansfield Senior Reds Walking Football Club are the Torneo Maestro Italiano Over 65 Champions (Italian Masters Tournament Over 65 Champions) having recently competed at Peschiera Del Garda on the banks of Lake Garda in Northern Italy.
 
The Over 65 tournament was competed for on a 6-a-side basis with two days of competition, played on a league basis. The Reds came out on top having competed with opponents from the UK & Italy.  
 
The first day saw Mansfield Senior Reds win all their 4 fixtures, (1-0, 4-0, 3-0, 3-0)this gave them a strong lead  going into finals day where they faced 4 more games and by winning 2 and drawing 2 of them (5-0, 0-0, 3-0, 0-0) they clinched the title, with an unbeaten record. 
 
Full record:- Played 8, Won 6, drawn 2, Lost 0, For 19, Against 0, Points 20! The goals were shared between Steve Birkin 6 (2 pens), Steve Haynes 5, Geoff West 5 and Andy Kowalski 3.
 
It was a fantastic achievement to go through the entire competition and all 8 games without conceding a goal and was a testament of this veteran team’s commitment and work rate      
 
The Reds entered another team in that same age group & they just fell short of making the runners up spot. Tom McAlinden netted 6 goals (3 pens), with Jez Healy getting the other. They also competed in the Over 50’s section where the Reds record wasn’t a true reflection of the side’s efforts, losing a number of games that could have gone either way. Darron Hall scored an outstanding 10 goals with a real ‘golden boot’ contribution, Steve Ward and Steve Elliott both weighed in getting a goal each.

Congratulations go to the Mansfield Walking Football Team on another successful tournament, we look forward to hearing about your clubs future activities.

2019 NOTTINGHAM FOREST SUPPORTERS CLUB AGM

14 September 2019



 

The AGM of Nottingham Forest Supporters Club will be held on Saturday, 5th October 2019, before our home game with Brentford which takes place later that afternoon.

It will be held at The City Ground’s Castle Club, formerly called the Pitch Diner, in the Trent End Stand. Doors will open at 10am for a 10:30am start. We realise this is an earlier start from previous years, which will be an inconvenience for members from further afield, but unfortunately the football club need the room vacated by Midday for match day corporate clients.

There is a lift available to the Castle Club from the main entrance and the meeting will take approximately 1 hour. All members are invited to attend, but please remember to bring your membership card on the day as it must be shown to gain entry.

Although this is yet to be confirmed, representatives from the football club have been invited to the meeting, so we are hoping for a good attendance on the day.

MANSFIELD BRANCH WALKING FOOTBALL TEAM

15 August 2019



 

The Mansfield Branch of the Nottingham Forest Supporters Club have been running a successful walking football team for a number of years. Branch Secretary Peter Mitchell gives us an update on their recent activities.
 
Mansfield Senior Reds are an Over 50’s Walking Football Club formed through the Mansfield Branch. They are the current Mansfield Sports Recognition Awards ‘Team of the Year.’
 
They recently travelled to Lincoln to play in an ‘Open Age’ Walking football Tournament to raise funds for a Lincolnshire Cardiac Rehab Charity. The 8 teams entered were split into two groups, with each side scheduled to play all the teams in their group, followed by a final against their opposite number from the other group.
 
First up MSR played the host team Ruston Rebels and came out on top 2-0 with goals from Shaun Hird and Darron Hall. The second game was a close encounter with Welton Wanderers, and it took a classy individual goal from Mel Pullen to ensure a 1-0 win. Needing a point to qualify for the 1st place final MSR were heading for that draw when Darron Hall worked an opening, powerfully firing across the keeper into the net. The 1-0 win ensured MSR were in the 1st place final, with 3 wins from 3 games, 4 goals scored and an unblemished defensive record.
 
All the matches were close and hard fought with plenty of good football.
 
In the final MSR met up with Charles James Old Boy’s, who had won their group with 2 wins and a draw. Again, there was little between the teams in a physical encounter. MSR were put under pressure for the first time in the Tournament and found themselves trailing as they went into the latter stages of the game thanks to a superb strike arrowed into the top corner. MSR were struggling to get into their passing game, but equalised late on when Shaun Hird struck to take the final into a penalty shoot-out.
 
The penalty shoot-out had strict rules in force for steps before striking the ball and these were rigidly enforced by the referee in the 3 player shoot-out. MSR chose to go first with their first two attempts disallowed and Steve Birkin scoring the third. In response the OB’s, missed the target with one, had a second disallowed and Pete Mitchell saved the third. So MSR took home the silverware with a 1-0 score line.
 
The day was also about raising funds & MSR were also happy to assist in donating & helping to raise around £2,000 on the day for the Cardiac Rehab charity.
 
The next adventure for this veteran team is a trip to Lake Garda in Italy where they will be wearing the ‘garibaldi’ in tournaments in the Over 50 and Over 65 age groups.
 
Congratulations to Mansfield Senior Reds on another successful tournament, and for raising so much money for a good cause. We also wish you good luck in your tournament in Italy and look forward to hearing how you get on.

The Boat Club on match day.

We look forward to seeing you there throughout the season.


 
 


FOOTBALL TO AMSTERDAM CHARITY BIKE RIDE


4 July 2019
 

Dave Marmion, right, in the London Velodrome.

Earlier this year we told you about Dave Marmion from the Royal Children Branch who, with many other Forest fans, was cycling from London to Amsterdam in aid of Prostate Cancer UK in the charities Football to Amsterdam bike ride.

We caught up with Dave last week to find out how it went, and how much you helped him raise.


First of all congratulations on completing the ride, apart from it being for a fantastic cause, what made you want to take up the challenge in the first place?

Initially, I wanted to do something to get a bit fitter and I didn’t really know much about Prostate Cancer. When you start to learn more about the disease, it really does hit home how terrible, but preventable it is. In the UK 1 in 8 men are diagnosed with Prostate Cancer and one man dies every 45 minutes. That’s two men during a football match! 

The sense of pride in knowing you’re raising awareness was something that really drove me on. 

There was a minimum sponsorship requirement of £1200 but I managed to raise over £3300, which was incredible. It’s amazing how generous people are. 
 
How much training did you do beforehand?

I was a complete novice, I didn’t even own a bike and I’d not ridden for well over 15 years. 

I started training in January and managed to get one ride a week in initially. Within three months I was consistently able to ride 20-30 miles without needing to stop. The most I managed to ride in one go was 51 miles. 
 
Was the ride as hard as you imagined it to be?

In parts yes but as a whole, surprisingly not! My legs never let me down, but the weather was the worst part. For most of day one we had torrential rain and riding through the Essex countryside being hammered by the wind and rain wasn’t much fun. 
 
The second day in the Netherlands was a mix bag of weather. We had 40 kph winds, heavy rain and then glorious sunshine. The ride itself was really nice over there, lots of nice flat roads to ride along the coast and canals from the Hook of Holland to Amsterdam. 
 
The ride was 140 miles over two days and is broken up in to 20/30 mile stages. If you can ride 20/30 miles without needing to stop, then it’s very achievable. 

Were there many other Forest fans taking part?

I was the only one doing the London route but there were eight that did the Barnsley route. They were riding as part of Team Dear North (along with another 12 riders in the team) and they managed to raise an incredible £36,000 between them. I met these guys at the last game of the season and they really helped me to prepare for the ride by offering some tips. 

 
 Dave with ex England international Paul Parker.
 
There were a number of famous faces that joined you for the trip to Amsterdam, did you get chance to meet any of them?

I did, I got talking to ex England and Man United player Paul Parker during the ride and we had a few beers together in the evening. He was a great guy and had us in stitches with his stories about his playing days. 

There was also Viv Anderson who was doing the ride from Barnsley for the fourth time, Titus Bramble and the guys from the Undr The Cosh Podcast - John Parkin and the two Chris Brown’s. 

We had a great night out in Amsterdam with the Undr The Cosh boys and this is what’s great about this ride, everyone goes through it together and the sense of togetherness is great. There was no snobbishness from any of them. Dancing on tables with your shirts off really helps encourage that.... 
 
Can people still donate now that you have completed the challenge?

Absolutely - the Just Giving Page is open until 7th July. 

https://www.justgiving.com/David-Marmion?utm_id=26
 
Finally, would you do it all again?!
 
Definitely - we’re planning next year to enter an NFFC team and already have a number of ex players keen to ride with us. We’re on the look out for representation from all areas of Forest fans - if anyone is interested in doing the ride next year, feel free to contact us on Twitter at @forest2dam to join the team. 
 
The only way we can raise awareness of Prostate Cancer is by talking about it. Events like this really help to start those conversations - the amount of people I knew who shared with me that they’d had Prostate Cancer or had been checked for it, who hadn’t shared this information before was a real eye opener. 
 
Following the ride one of my friends had said that as a result of me talking about Prostate Cancer it highlighted the symptoms to them and they went to the doctors to be checked out. There’s no better feeling that knowing you might have helped someone to catch something like that early. 
 
Congratulations to Dave, and every other rider who took part in this year’s event. We look forward to hearing how you get on in next years event.

SUPPORTERS CLUB GROUND REDEVELOPMENT

CONSULTATION

8th June 2019

 

Earlier this week branch secretaries of Nottingham Forest Supporters Club met Nottingham Forest FC Chairman Nicholas Randall QC and Chief Commercial Officer David Cook to discuss the planned redevelopment of the City Ground.

We received a number of questions from supporter’s club members over the past few weeks and we did our best to get as many as possible answered on the night. Below is an overview of the evening. We hope it answers a lot of your questions.

The redevelopment plans

The redevelopment will be in multiple phases, with the first concentrating on the building of the new Peter Taylor Stand, taking the stands capacity from 5700 to 10,000. This stand will incorporate state of the art hospitality facilities, including conference space for 1200 people and banqueting facilities for 800. This would be the largest of its type in the East Midlands, providing additional income opportunities for the club on non-match days.

Phase 1 will also potentially include the development of 240 apartments behind the Peter Taylor Stand, additionally providing new facilities for the rowing clubs which currently occupy the site.

Phase 2 will focus on upgrading the 3 remaining stands within the limits of the present structures, with decisions to be made at a later date on what these would be.

Planning permission

It is hoped that planning permission will be applied in July 2019, with work commencing on phase 1 from July 2020.

During the work

It is envisaged that from July 2020 the City Ground will host matches with 3 stands for the following 2 seasons (2020/21 & 2021/22). During this time temporary facilities will be provided for the players, match day officials and the media.

Peter Taylor Stand season ticket holders

With the soft cap of 20,000 season card holders now in place, all season card holders in the Peter Taylor Stand will be guaranteed a seat in the ground while the work takes place. Once the work is complete they will get the chance to return to the location of their original seat in the new Peter Taylor Stand.

The Club are also looking into the away allocation being lowered while the work takes place, but this would have to be authorised by the EFL.

Safe standing

Although safe standing will not be included in the new Peter Taylor Stand, the club is open to its incorporation into another suitable part of the ground, once the details of the law is defined. The club restated their wish to give fans as much choice as possible.

Anniversary Wall

In the most part the anniversary wall will stay in its present location. If any parts of the wall do have to be moved, this will be to a suitable location, yet to be determined.

Match day parking

While the work takes place, and after its completion with the increase in ground capacity, match day parking in the Peter Taylor stand will become more limited. The club are hoping that more fans will make use of public transport, with discussions already starting on running shuttle buses from the city centre on match days.

Disabled facilities

The new Peter Taylor stand will provide facilities for disabled fans, including wheelchair access to the upper parts of the stand via a lift.

Club museum

There club are proposing to include a museum in the Peter Taylor Stand, and this will be included in future ground tours and community education projects.

The Bridgford Stand

The long term aim of the football club is the extension of the upper tier of the Bridgford Stand for its entire length. The connection of the Peter Taylor Stand and the Bridgford Stand will also be looked into, taking into consideration access to the pitch for emergency vehicles.

Total investment

The total investment on the ground and surrounding area will be approximately £100 million.

Future consultation

The club stated that these early consultations with supporters’ groups was only the start. Further consultations with all supporters will continue with a questionnaire being sent to all season card holders over the next few weeks.

Once again, we would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved with these consultations for the time and effort in consulting ourselves, and all the other supporters’ groups on these ground redevelopments. We would also like to thank the branch secretaries of the 19 branches that attended the meeting.

If you have any further questions you would like us to ask the club at future meetings, please get in touch through the contact details on our website.
