PLAYER OF THE SEASON AWARDS

20 April 2018


Newark branch member Joshua  Ridyard presents Eric Lichaj with  his branches 2016/17 Player of  the Season award.

Newark branch member Joshua Ridyard presents Eric Lichaj with his branches 2016/17 Player of the Season award.

 

This season, for the first time, we are giving members of Nottingham Forest Supporters Club the chance to vote for our Player of the Season and Young Player of the Season online.

To nominate who you think should receive the Supporters Clubs Player of the Season and David Howard Young Player of Season awards all you have to do is go to the Contact Us page of this website and send us a message with the names of the players you nominate for each award and include your name, branch and membership number to validate your vote.

Unfortunately, with the season coming to a close within the next few weeks, time is short. The closing date for your nominations is no later than 3pm on Sunday the 22nd of April.

Information on who our winners are, and when both awards will be presented, will be announced as soon as they are confirmed on this website.



 





END OF SEASON PLAYER AWARDS & RAFFLE

9 April 2018



 

It is with considerable disappointment that due to circumstances beyond our control there will be no Player of the Season Presentation Dinner this season.

Although no presentation evening will take place, voting forms for the Supporters Club’s Player of the Season and Young Player of the Season will still be posted to all branch members and presentations will be made to the reciprocates at the end of the season. If there are any branches that would like to make their own Player of the Season awards, could they please contact Joan Bakewell on 0115 956 1227 for further information on how this can be arranged.

Raffle tickets for our end of season draw will also be included with your voting forms.  As with your Player of the Season voting forms, these should be returned to Joan by post or to her directly in The Boat Club on match days. The draw will take place in the Boat Club before our last match of the season against Bristol City on the 28th of April.

USA BRANCH MEET IN ATLANTA

14 March 2018
Last weekend wasn't only a big weekend in Nottingham. Over 4 thousand miles away in Atlanta the USA branch of Nottingham Forest Supporters Club had their first meet since they were re-formed in 2015. We caught up with branch secretary Shaun Simms to find out how it went.
 
First of all Shaun, how did the re-formation of the USA branch come about?
 
Not in the way many expected (which was a Forest fan from England now living in the states).  I grew up playing sports (baseball, basketball, American football, cross country, and track), and ran track in college, but didn’t like soccer until 2013 when a co-worker and friend challenged me to watch the Premier League which was now being shown on TV.  The constant action was so contrary to many American sports that it was hard not to be entertained.  When she asked what team I was going to support, I decided not to just pick a top team, but try and find some connection to a team – no matter what division they were in.  Through doing my genealogy I found I had distant relatives from Nottingham and thought, “I wonder if they have a team.”  Little did I know the tremendous history I was going to uncover.  I was all in, and, I figured there had to be a few other individuals out there who would appreciate a club of this magnitude. So, I made this an official supporter’s chapter, and have been working to build it since that time.
 
Why did you decide on Atlanta for your first meet up?
 
There were several reasons.  We knew we wanted to meet up for the Forest vs Derby game, and since that was in early March we knew weather is very unpredictable, especially in the north so we wanted to be in warmer, less volatile climate.  And, of course, that is the hometown of Wes.
 
You mentioned one of your members, Wesley Hall, who has become a bit of a Twitter legend among Forest fans on this side of the Atlantic after Reds fans mistakenly thought he was our ex defender Wes Morgan due to his Twitter name 'bigwes', did he enjoy meeting so many fellow fans in his home city?
 
I think he absolutely did.  Most of us (or maybe all of us) had never met previously – what else could bring complete strangers together other than something like this? Wes set up a dinner for all of us to hang out Saturday night as well before the game – honestly some of the best people I’ve ever met.
 

Where did Reds fans fly in from for the weekend?
 
We had supporters travel in from St. Louis, Missouri; Indianapolis, Indiana, Cleveland, Ohio; Washington D.C.; Jacksonville, Florida; Lakeland, Florida and of course we had various individuals from the Atlanta area.
 
The atmosphere at the City Ground was fantastic on Sunday, did that come across well to you all watching the game in America?
 
Yes!  And we were singing right along with all of you, especially Vinny! There isn’t a much sweeter sound – even through the TV – than hearing Mull of Kintyre before the kick-off.
 
We understand some of you attended the MLS game between Atlanta United & DC United after our match on Sunday, how did that go?
 
About half of the crew were able to attend the Atlanta United game in their phenomenal stadium.  Atlanta United won 3-1, so Wes, Yaya, Justin and the other Atlanta United fans were happy.
 
...DC United manager Ben Olsen played for Forest on loan during the 2000/01 season, so were any of you supporting DC during the game?!
 
One of our members, Graeme,is from D.C. but he hasn’t quite jumped on the DC United bandwagon yet.
 
And finally, are there any plans being made for the next USA branch meet?  Is there a possibility of a group trip to Nottingham being made in the near future?
 
The most difficult thing about being the US leader is the massive geographical region we have to cover, which makes full branch meet ups logistically difficult.  We have members 3,000 miles apart!  I believe this was a very successful meet up, and I’ve already seen quite a few new fans want to join in next time.  Ben Bullock was instrumental in helping during the Atlanta meet up, and has really taken ownership of our Facebook page – I’m sure he and I will be discussing this soon.  At a minimum, we will have 1 larger group meet up a year, and hope to break off into regional meet ups as well.
 
As far as doing a group trip to Nottingham in the near future – I’d love to!  After hearing all of the diverse ways in Atlanta that our members like Ann and others became supporters, it quickly dawned on me that I was the only one (besides my wonderful wife, Melissa) that has never been to the City Ground.  I did a Twitter poll to see where people might want to have our next meet up and Chicago, New York, Tampa Bay, and Nottingham were the top 4 responses.
 
A big thank you to Shaun for answering our questions, we hope everyone who attended the meet up in Atlanta had a fantastic weekend. If you would like to join the USA branch, or any of our overseas branches, you can get more information on the Membership page of our website.

HULL CITY SUPPORTERS CLUB'S 

INVITATION TO FOREST FANS


24 January 2018

 

 
This Saturday will see Nottingham Forest fans make their second trip of the season to the KCOM Stadium as we take on Hull City in the 4th round of the FA Cup, and once again The Official Hull City Supporters Club have invited our members to join them pre match at their bar.

The Airco Arena will be open from 1.45pm until kick off and is located next to the stadium. Hull City Supporters Club Chair Kathryn Townsley explains “We'll have our usual pre match interview with an ex Hull City player, and maybe even one of you would like to offer up your thoughts on the match and the season ahead. There will also be Sky Sports so Jeff and the boys on Gillette Soccer Saturday will keep us up to date on how our rivals are getting on, competitions & cheaper drinks than you'll find in the stadium itself, but more than that, a good social and a warm welcome from us. It would be great if you could join us and junior supporters are more than welcome too.”

 

Once again, we thank Hull City Supporters Club for their kind invitation and hope as many of you as possible can join them before the game.

 
 




THE BOAT CLUB THIS SUNDAY

5 January 2018

The Boat Club on match day.

The Boat Club is fully licensed with a good selection of beers, wines and ales, and is also ideally located a short walk from the Trent End stand on the bank of the river. Guests & away fans of all ages are welcome for a £1 entry fee, with accompanied children free.

NOTTINGHAM FOREST SUPPORTERS CLUB STATEMENT

31 December 2017

 
The Management and Committee of Nottingham Forest Supporters Club would like to put on record our thanks to our departing Manager Mark Warburton, Assistant Manager David Weir and Sporting Director Frank McParland for all they have done for the football club over the past 9 months.

Mark and his team joined Nottingham Forest during a very difficult time both on and off the pitch for the football club, securing our Championship status at the end of last season and then starting the rebuilding process under our new owners during the first half of this one.

Inherently, the departure of any football manager is closely linked to the failure in getting results on the pitch, but the way in which Mark sent his teams out to play attractive football and his encouragement of youth development through our academy programme should still be applauded.

We wish Mark, David and Frank all the best in their future endeavours.

PETER WITHE SIGNED BOOK OFFER

5 December 2017



Earlier this month former Nottingham Forest striker Peter Withe released his autobiography ‘Peter Withe: All for the Love of the Game’ and we have signed copies available to purchase in The Boat Club this Saturday from Noon before our home match against Bolton Wanderers.

Written in collaboration with Simon Goodyear, All for the Love of the Game describes the fascinating career of the Liverpool born striker who has played and managed all over the world, including 2 seasons at The City Ground where he won First Division and League Cup medals in the 1977-78 season, going on to score the winning goal for Aston Villa in the European Cup Final 4 years later. The hard back book, signed by both Peter and Simon, would make an ideal Christmas present for any Forest fan.

Copies of the book are for sale at the cover price of £18.99 and can be reserved in advance for collection in the Boat Club on Saturday by contacting Joan Bakewell on 0115 956 1227. Unfortunately we are not able to post copies to members due to the postage costs involved.

SUPPORTERS CLUB AGM REPORT

8 November  2017

Nottingham Forest Supporters Clubs 2017 AGM in the Pitch Diner at The City Ground.

Nottingham Forest Supporters Club's 2017 AGM took place last Saturday in the Pitch Diner before our home game with QPR. 

Before the AGM officially started Nottingham Forest FC Chairman Nicholas Randall, Club Ambassador John McGovern and Media & Communications Manager Ben White were in attendance to welcome and chat to supporters club members. The meeting started with speeches from Supporters Club Chairman Keith Mather and General Secretary Rita Kirk, who both reported another year of growth in membership, including overseas branches, and the improved communication between the supporters club and the football club since the club had been taken over earlier in the year.

The management and committee for the upcoming year were then announced. This is as follows;


Chair: Keith Mather
 
Vice-Chair & General Secretary: Rita Kirk
 
Treasurer: Ian Crosby
 
Social Secretary & Tickets: Joan Bakewell
 
Membership Secretary: Tremaine Binkley

Webmaster: Richard Dalby

Management Committee members of the Supporters Club:
 
Steve Sheppard
 
Tracey Murphy 
 
Jo Pascoe


Following on from this announcement Chairman Keith Mather spoke of the continued search for new members to join the committee, to assist with the running of the supporters club and to bring some fresh ideas on how we can go forward as a club. General Secretary Rita Kirk closed the meeting by thanking everyone who attended the meeting, including the representatives of the football club, and also thanked the football club for providing the facilities at The Pitch Diner for the AGM to take place.

LONDON BRANCH CELEBRATE

THEIR 40TH ANNIVERSARY


31 October 2017

 


Earlier this month the London branch of the supporters club celebrated their 40th anniversary with some special guests, here is a rundown of what went on in their own words.

London Trickies had a 40th birthday to remember with a lot of help from Forest legend Garry Birtles and NFFC’s new chairman Nicholas Randall. The pair were guests of honour at The Horseshoe pub in Farringdon as past and present members marked a milestone for our branch of the Nottingham Forest Supporters Club.

After an introduction by our branch chairman Steve Moon, Garry provided some great stories of life under Brian Clough during a question and answer session hosted by Simon Bristow. It was also great to hear him talk about the way club legends were finally being embraced by both the new board and even the current manager Mark Warburton, in stark contrast to the way photos were removed from the walls by previous regimes. Garry was joined on stage by our branch chairman Steve Moon who spoke about the history of the branch.

During the afternoon we were joined by Mr Randall who gave an illuminating insight into the new administration’s goals for the club since Evengelos Marinakis purchased Forest from Fawaz Al-Hasawi.

It was great that both Garry and Nick stayed to chat to fans long into the evening.

Congratulations from all of us to the London branch on reaching this milestone. If you would like to join the London branch head to their website at www.londontrickies.com.


 
 



HULL CITY SUPPORTERS CLUB'S 

INVITATION TO FOREST FANS


25 October 2017

 
 
This Saturday will see Nottingham Forest play Hull City at the KCOM Stadium and The Official Hull City Supporters Club have invited our members to join them pre match at their bar.

The Airco Arena will be open from 3.45pm until kick off and is located next to the stadium. Hull City Supporters Club Chair Kathryn Townsley explains “We'll have our usual pre match interview with an ex Hull City player, and maybe even one of you would like to offer up your thoughts on the match and the season ahead. There will also be Sky Sports so Jeff and the boys on Gillette Soccer Saturday will keep us up to date on how our rivals are getting on, competitions & cheaper drinks than you'll find in the stadium itself, but more than that, a good social and a warm welcome from us. It would be great if you could join us and junior supporters are more than welcome too.”

 

We thank Hull City Supporters Club for their kind invitation and hope as many of you as possible can join them before the game.

FOREST FANS MEMORIES SOUGHT

28 September 2017


Nottingham Forest fan’s memories of the 1984 UEFA Cup semi- final against Anderlecht are being sought by a local journalist who is writing a book about the corruption scandal that saw the chairman of the Brussels club bribe the referee before the 2nd leg of the tie between the 2 clubs, evidence of which only coming to light 13 years later.

Matt Barlow has already produced a film for the BBC’s Inside Out programme about the events that took place that night in Brussels, but felt there was scope to write a book about it. Matt explains “I have spoken to a number of former Forest players about their memories of the game. Many of these players are angry about what happened and are angry that Anderlecht didn't face any real punishment for this. They also point out that a sportsman's career is short so games like this are vitally important.”

Matt goes on to say, “In addition to speaking to former players though I would like to see what Forest fans can remember about the game. I would like to know what they thought in 1997 when this all came to light and what they think about it now. Not only would I like to know what they thought about the game but I would like to build up an impression of what it was like being a Forest fan in 1984 and what Nottingham as a city was like back then - to give a bit of colour to what I am writing.”

If you have any memories you would like to share with Matt you can contact him at mattbarlowuk@yahoo.co.uk.

 


 





STUART ASTILL

25 September 2017


It was with great sadness that we heard of the passing of supporters club member and fellow Forest fan Stuart Astill over the weekend.

Stuart was a member of the supporters club for many years, during which time he was branch secretary of the HQ branch for over 20 years and also an active member of the management committee. A retired railway engineer from Sandiacre, Stuart was a familiar face at Forest games, following his beloved reds home & reds since 1956 up until health issues restricted his attendance at matches in recent years.

His support of Nottingham Forest even made the national press in 2013 when he was unable to attend our away tie against Burnley at Turf Moor due to an operation on his foot, the first home or away match he had missed for 40 years. A consecutive run of 1,786 games going back to 1973 when he was an usher at a friends wedding.

The board and committee of Nottingham Forest Supporters Club would like to pass on their condolences to Stuart’s family and friends at this sad time.

This is an all ticket event and tickets, costing £20, are available from branch chairman, Stephen Moon at 32 Westminster Gardens , Barking, Essex. IG11 0BJ. Please send a stamped addressed envelope for the return of your tickets and cheques should be payable to Nottingham Forest S.C. London Branch.

Entry forms, with the full rules and how to enter, will be available in the Boat Club on matchdays and will also be included with your membership packs when you receive them. Or you can print off a copy using the link below.
 
***COMPETITION NOW CLOSED***

The closing date for entries is 1st September 2017 and, as always, we will be including regular updates on how everyone is getting on throughout the season on this website.

Good luck!

 
 



RUDDINGTON SUPPORTER SEEKS

ASSISTANCE TO HOME MATCHES


27 May 2017

 
 
A Forest supporter in Ruddington is looking for a fellow fan to assist him in attending home matches at the City Ground next season.

Trevor Fermie has been a season ticket holder for over 30 years, but after developing Parkinson’s disease he has found it more and more difficult to attend home matches by himself. So much so that even though he purchased a season ticket last season he could not attend a single game.

Trevor explains, “I have an electric mobility scooter, but before I commit to a season ticket again next season I wondered if there was any Forest fans that would be willing to take me to matches. I would be willing to pay the costs for the carer to attend the matches and arrange for a taxi to and from my house to the ground.”

If you are interested in helping Trevor get to matches next season please send your contact details to us at enquiries@nottinghamforestsupportersclub.co.uk and we will pass them on to him.

STATEMENT FROM NOTTINGHAM FOREST

SUPPORTERS CLUB


20 May 2017

 

 
Nottingham Forest Supporters Club would like to welcome Mr Evangelos Marinakis and Mr Sokratis Kominakis as the new owners of Nottingham Forest Football Club. We would also like to welcome the clubs new Chairman, Nicholas Randall QC, Chief Executive Officer, Ioannis Vrentzos and all of the other new members of the senior management team that have been brought into the club by Mr Marinakis and Mr Kominakis.

The past few years have been a difficult time for the football club, both on and off the pitch, and we hope that the events over the past 48 hours heralds a more stable period for the club. We look forward to working with the new management team to forge closer ties between the club and its supporters, as we have done with the previous owners of the club over the past 40 years. The Official Nottingham Forest Supporters Club are proud of the long history of dialogue between ourselves and the club, representing the views of all of its supporters from over 50 branches around the world and we hope this will continue for many years to come.

We would also like to go on record in thanking the Al Hasawi family for their stewardship of the club over the past 5 years. Even though we did not agree with a lot of the decisions made by them over this time, the owners and their management team were always available to answer our questions and helped considerably with events the supporters club organised which involved the clubs players and management. We would especially like to thank Media & Communications Manager Ben White and Club Ambassador John McGovern for all of their time spent working with the supporters club and look forward to working with them again in the future.

The Management and Committee of Nottingham Forest Supporters Club

 
 



LONDON BRANCH HOST QPR WARM UP

5 May 2017

 
Forest legend Colin Barrett conducts the singing in a packed Garden Bar.

The result on the pitch last Saturday was not what we were looking for, but over 400 Forest fans enjoyed the pre match entertainment organised by the London branch of the supporters club and fan group Forza Garibaldi before our match against QPR. Simon Bristow from the London branch tells us more.
 
Whilst the result on Saturday wasn't what we all hoped for, and will leave Reds fans biting their nails down to the knuckle during 90 tortuous minutes against Ipswich on Sunday, the pre-match gathering at the Garden Bar epitomised everything that is joyous, wonderful and heart-warming about our great club. 

 
Forget the 90 minutes of football, because the 400 or so Trickies that were crammed into the Latimer Road pub had four hours of fun. There were flags (including the delightful new London Trickies standard), there was drinking, there was a full rendition of songs - old and new.

 
 
Simon (right) with fellow London branch member Tom Barber. 
 
And then there was Colin Barrett. Approaching four decades since, arguably, the most famous goal in Forest's history, Colin made the trip from Southwell to be part of the away day crowd. A rapturous ovation for his arrival was only bettered when Colin, stood atop the garden furniture, led his disciples in a performance of 'who put the ball in the scousers net'.
 
Whatever happens on Sunday, this season has seen the emergence of a strong togetherness amongst the fans. The outstanding work of Forza Garibaldi led to it working with the London Trickies to organise the day out in the Capital. It was great to be joined by the likes of Colin, Jonny Owen, Matt Forde, the team behind Bandy and Shinty and Helena Doughty - and it was equally great to hear the ovation her brother, Michael, received when he came on for QPR. 
 
Forest is a unique family, one that we should continue to treasure, whatever league we're in next season.
 
If you would like to join the London branch of the supporters club contact Michael Helme on 07841 403989 and you can find out about the branches upcoming events by following them on Twitter at @LondonTrickies.
