Meeting held on held on Friday 16th October.
Supporters Direct is a national organisation whose aim is to encourage the growth of Supporters Trusts to ensure football supporters (and now Rugby League supporters as well) have a democratic voice in the running of their clubs. This year’s conference was at Birmingham’s NEC which is very near that hotbed of football which is Solihull Moors’ ground. In fact the previous week it had taken me just over two hours to drive from my home in Brighouse to our match at Solihull. This morning it took over three hours due to a hold up on the M1 and as I drove towards the enormous NEC car parking area I wondered where to park. ‘Fortunately’ the car in front had a large Morecambe FC scarf in the window so for the first time in my life I followed Morecambe as I assumed they were going to the same meeting as me. A big mistake as in fact there isn’t a Trust at Morecambe and they were going to a Caravan exhibition! I must remember never to pay any attention to Morecambe again!
