2020 NOTTINGHAM FOREST SUPPORTERS CLUB AGM

17 November 2020

 
 
November usually sees our AGM take place before one of our home games during the month, but as we are sure you can understand this has been unable to happen this year due to the ongoing national lockdown. For this reason we are moving our AGM online this year.

We start with our Chairman report from Keith Mather;
 
CHAIRMAN REPORT;

With the way things in the World are panning out now and the restrictions placed upon staging meetings and gatherings etc. It has become increasingly more difficult for us all to perform our duties, hold Committee meetings and generally have any face to face contact with each other. However, at our last Committee meeting we managed to pencil in the AGM for NFSC on Saturday 28th November 2020 prior to the fixture with Swansea City.

Unfortunately, now this will not be taking place due to the COVID 19 pandemic situation that we find ourselves within. There will be no alternative date for AGM 2020 and therefore due to restrictions that are now in place and likely to remain so for the foreseeable future the AGM cannot take place, we shall still produce our financial report for perusal and send/forward copies to each Branch Secretary via email, and if acceptable of the content within from our management committee and yourselves we shall then publish on our NFSC Website for members to see.

I realise and accept that not all our supporter’s club members have access and are not OK with getting information online, so a small number of the data information may have to be mailed out.

COVID 19 has had a massive impact throughout the world and like so many other families, businesses and charities it is very difficult for us to make ends meet, but we will try our best to keep our heads above water and moving forward we are going to make some savings and ‘cut our cloth’ accordingly, but hopefully the green shoots of recovery won’t be too long in coming our way.

We had plans in place to reopen our match day venue ‘The Boat Club’ from October 2020, but all this is now on the back burner with no signs of when spectators will now be allowed back into sporting venues. When we do get the green light ‘The Boat Club’ will re-open for every home game but will follow whatever guidelines and restrictions that would be in place. With reduced capacity, social distancing, table service, Track and Trace and pre-booking of tables.

We would also be looking to utilise outdoor space at the venue with bottle/can bar and hopefully use The Britannia next door, however this will give us nowhere near the capacity we had before within The Boat Club. It certainly will be very challenging, but it is something we will have to do and make work, bearing in mind this venue is a great source of match day revenue for NFSC.

Unfortunately, if nothing changes drastically there will be no match day entry for non-members due to space being so limited, so we will need extra volunteers to fully comply with membership checks and recording of names and addresses for current ‘Track and Trace’ purposes.
The challenges will be difficult, but I am sure we can all step up and meet these challenges to be able to move forward.

Memberships as we would all expect has not been everyone’s number one priority in this current pandemic climate, but if we could all just remind a few members to renew we could then enable us to get back to a more sustainable figure for NFSC to survive and continue to deliver for us all.

Finally, if anyone can come up with ideas to fund raise and inflate the bank account then please feel free to approach us with your ideas or plans.

Many thanks for your attention and good health to you all. Stay safe and let’s now hopefully see things turn around again on the football front for Nottingham Forest.
Keith Mather
Chair. Nottingham Forest Supporters Club.


We now move on to our Treasurer report from Ian Crosby;


TREASURER REPORT;

It goes without saying that everyone has been badly affected by the COVID-19 virus, and NFSC finances are no exception, notably in the loss of the last five home games at the boat club. So there have been quite a few differences from the previous year in some of the areas, so I think these should be highlighted, so you can see the reason for the change.

The main difference is in the boat club and merchandise revenue which has fallen by about £1700 from the previous 12 months. Also contributing to the loss was an increase in package costs for the 2019/20 season, mainly due to purchases of gloves and scarves. We also had a slight increase in the Exec box, but we have been refunded for the last 5 games on a pro-rata basis, but this will show in next year’s accounts.
On the upside, the Membership income was unaffected as this income all arrives in the 1st part of the year, and the end of season raffle made a reasonable profit.

Other items such as shirt sponsorships and postage costs have remained at the same level, so the net result is that although we did increase net expenditure by £800, the main culprit was a reduction in income of about £1250.
So, the net result was a loss of £1250 over the year.

However, turning over to the actual Balance Sheet, the big differences you can see is in the 2019/20 debtors and prepayments, which is basically the exec box and membership package items for this current season. These are nearly £6800 less than the previous year.
£2700 of this difference is the payment for the diaries which was still outstanding, £700 was a reduction in the exec box cost for this season, so the real difference is £3400. We had already reduced the cost of the package items and used existing stock in making up the packages for 2020/21, which means we were nearly £3000 better off in the bank account than in May 2019. I'm hoping this will help us through this horrible time.

The actual figures are on the sheets attached here.

If you have any questions, you can contact me at ian_crosby@ntlworld.com
Best Regards
Ian Crosby
Treasurer. NFSC.


We thank you for taking the time to read our AGM reports for this year and hope to welcome you to our 2021 AGM back at the City Ground next year.

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.

FEEDBACK SOUGHT FOR CITY GROUND REDEVELOPMENT

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.

THE STUDY CENTRE ON MATCH DAYS

13 December 2019



With the season now well into the winter period, Nottingham Forest Supporters Club members are reminded that The Study Centre at the City Ground is available to meet in before home games throughout the season.

As always the ever popular Boat Club is open for every home match, serving a wide selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, but for those of you who would like a quieter place to meet before games The Study Centre has a room available exclusively for our members to meet up in. Tea and coffee is also available, and a warm welcome to supporters club members out of the cold.

The Study Centre is located in The Peter Taylor Stand car park and is available to use 2 hours before kick off for each home match this season, we look forward to seeing you there.



 




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.
