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.

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.


 





LONDON BRANCH CELEBRATE

THEIR 40TH ANNIVERSARY


10 September 2017


The London branch of the Nottingham Forest Supporters Club celebrate their 40th anniversary this year and are marking the event on the 7th of October. Branch Chairman Stephen Moon tells us more.

The Day Peter Shilton signed for Forest back in 1977 was also the day Nottingham Forest fans in London created their supporters club branch. Its time to celebrate that landmark with the London Trickies 40th anniversary function which will be held at the Horseshoe pub, in Clerkenwell, on Saturday the 7th of October from 3.30pm.

Without shouting too much, we are expecting one or two Forest legends to join us on the day and it should be a great occasion. We will also have a prize draw and possibly one or two other surprises on the day.

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.

Tickets have been initially restricted to members only as we are limited due to the size of the venue, but the branch would also welcome applications from any former members who have contributed to the success of the branch over the years.

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.

 


 



FAN OF THE SEASON AWARD

2 May 2017

 
Garath Levine of the Charnwood  branch collecting his Fan of the  Year award at the Supporters  Clubs 2017 awards night.
 
At the recent Nottingham Forest Supporters Club annual Player of the Season dinner the Fan of the Season Award was presented to Charnwood Branch member Gareth Lavine. He was nominated by branch secretary Paul Middleton. Here is Paul's nomination for Gareth, I'm sure you will agree he is a deserving recipient.

I would like to nominate Gareth Lavine of the Charnwood Branch for his continued help, enthusiasm and commitment. Everything he does is with Nottingham Forest and our members in mind.

The Charnwood Branch try where possible to travel to most away games by coach, or in personnel transport where numbers do not warrant a coach, and Gareth (Gaz) is always there to help myself organise our days out. We are building a branch with members of all ages being involved and we have had social events to raise funds throughout the season and once again Gaz has been there to be the quiz master and compare.

The main reason for nominating Gaz is that he suffers from Crohn’s disease and over the last 3 years he has been very ill. He had a lengthy stay in hospital during the 2014/15 season but he still helped where possible to organise away days from his hospital bed.
This season he has had numerous set backs with Crohn’s but he has always put others first. He has also been on a strict diet to help with his illness and he has lost nearly 5 stone by keeping a very strict fitness regime, swimming approximately a mile 3 times a week, and sticking to a healthy diet. Not easy when we are all eating burgers and pies on match days!

 

On top of this he runs a mini kicker soccer school for children aged 4 to 16 years of age on a weekly basis in his local village. Not forgetting running his own taxi business and providing for his wife and family, and not once has he moaned!
As you will see from the photo’s Gaz is Forest through and through, they show one of his proudest moments with two of his heroes when he was a mascot for the day when he was 11 years old. He also played as a youth team player during his younger years.

I cannot think of anybody who deserves this nomination more than Gaz. He is a great man and a friend to many.

 



 


PLAYER OF THE SEASON AWARDS

28 April 2017

 
Newark branch member Joshua Ridyard presents Eric Lichaj with his branches award.

Nottingham Forest Supporters Club held its annual Player of the Season dinner on the 22nd of April in the Robin Hood Suite at the City Ground. As always, supporters club members from branches all over the country and beyond came together to present their branch player of the season awards, as well as witnessing the main prize's being awarded to the player of the season and young player of the season.

This year's awards were a clean sweep for defender Eric Lichaj, who was chosen by every branch presenting trophies on the night as their player of the season, as well as picking up the main award on the night. Eric has started nearly every game for Forest this season, including scoring some vital goals against Birmingham City and Huddersfield Town at the City Ground.

It was no surprise the David Howard Award for Young Player of the Season went to 18 year old Ben Brereton who has made an amazing impact in his debut season for the first team, scoring 3 goals, being called up to the England Under 19 team and also receiving the award for Championship Apprentice of the Season earlier this year.

The Gedling branch also presented two special awards to Danny Fox and Ben Osborn for their performances for the club throughout the season. The Fan of the Season was also awarded to Charnwood branch member Gareth Lavine who we will feature more on in a future piece on the website.

Here is the full list awards presented on the night and who won them;

SUPPORTERS CLUB BOOK OFFER

3 March 2017

 
 
The Supporters Club are pleased to announce that we are selling copies of Philip Soar's excellent book The Official History of Nottingham Forest for only £5, original cover price £25, in The Boat Club on home match days. 

This 264 page hardback book is a special reprint of the original 1998 publication to celebrate our 150th anniversary, with a new chapter covering all the way up to 2015. It includes the story of how the club was founded in 1865, through chapters on our FA Cup victories of 1898 & 1959, to the success of the Brian Clough era and beyond. It also includes detailed results & records of all of Nottingham Forest's seasons up until 1998.

Unfortunately we are unable to post these books out to supporters. But The Boat Club on Trentside, close to The Trent End Stand, will have them available for sale on home match days at the front entrance. You don't have to be a Supporters Club member to take advantage of this offer, just pop into the Boat Club pre match and ask for your copy.

SUPPORTERS CLUB PLAYER Q&A EVENING

21 February 2017

 

Audience members at one of last season's Q&A evenings.
 
Nottingham Forest Supporters Club will be hosting another of their popular Question and Answer nights on the 23rd of March when supporters club members and their guests will be able to ask members of the Nottingham Forest first team questions on all things Forest.

This will be the supporters club's first Pie & Peas evening of the year, which in previous seasons has seen club ambassador John McGovern and players including Eric Lichaj, Chris Cohen and Jack Hobbs as 
our special guests. As yet, we have not had confirmation from the club on which players will be attending next months event, but it is hoped that at least 2 will be attendance on the night.

The Robin Hood suite at the City Ground will once again be the venue, with the evening kicking off at 6.30pm with pie, peas and gravy being served to all attendees. The Q&A will then commence at 7.30pm when our guests will be answering questions from the audience.
 
Tickets are now on sale priced at £6 per person and can be purchased from Joan Bakewell by phone on 0115 956 1227, via email at joanbakewell@ntlworld.com, or directly, at The Boat Club on match days.
