NOTTINGHAM FOREST SUPPORTERS CLUB PLAYER AWARDS


9 May 2021


 
This weekend our Player of the Year and David Howard Young Player of the Year awards were presented to the winning players.

Reds defender Joe Worrall has been voted as the Nottingham Forest Supporters Club Player of the Year and Gedling branch Player of the Year, whilst Alex Mighten claims the David Howard trophy for Young Player of the Year.

A consistent performer in the back four, Joe has made 31 league appearances for The Reds this season and is humbled to see his contribution recognised by supporters. "Growing up watching Forest and being able to play for the club is a dream come true so to be recognised on a personal level means a lot," he said. “I’ve been unlucky with the two injuries but coming back into the side and being captain on numerous occasions has been an honour and I’ve always played each game as though it’s my last.”

Mighten, who has only just turned 19, made 27 appearances for The Reds in all competitions this campaign and returned 3 goals, his first coming away at Millwall in December. “It’s a huge honour to be voted for this award. From coming through the academy to getting to the point I’m at now – it’s been a really enjoyable season on a personal level,” he said “I’ve been really grateful to have the chance to play more minutes and gain confidence as a player. “We’ve got a lot of work to do next season both individually and as a team. We know where we want to end up next season and we’ll get there step by step. “We just want to keep progressing and hopefully the fans will be back to help us with that.”

Thank you to all of you who casted your votes and we look forward to hopefully welcoming you back to The City Ground soon.

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.
