Club Shocked At Gap With Fans

At the Press Conference today, the new board members said they had met with sponsors Cargill.

They said the club and company had synergy in wanting to build a community spirit, with the new duo expressing their surprise at just how wide the gap between the club and it's support had got in the last couple of years from the feedback they had received over the last three weeks.

On the new Blackfriars stand, they called the conditions placed on the building as nothing to worry about. They reiterated the expectation of the stand being completed for the start of the 2011/12 season, saying that the demolition and build had to be done right especially with asbestos being found and that corners would not be cut.

They expect that the stand would not be ready for Shrewsbury's visit to Edgar Street at the end of April, but did hint that the stand could become a Family stand to enhance the club's community aspects.
