Community Call Scheme Update

22 July 2020

Back in March, the Football Club initiated a Community Call Scheme initiative in conjunction with our Community Sports Trust.

The basic idea was simple and that was to support those who have supported us when they needed it most.

The initial response that this generated was phenomenal, as we all tried to rationalise the uncharted times which deeply affected virtually every part of our normal lives.

The popularity of the scheme evolved rapidly, as the true extent of the Covid-19 pandemic took a devastating hold.

Many people wanted to reminisce about times gone by and some wanted to talk about the very real worries that the pandemic elicited - but one thing was common amongst all and that was the fact that people just wanted to hear a friendly voice at a time of overwhelming uncertainly for us all.

Since it's inception, over two hundred calls have now been made and we have greatly valued each and every one of them.

To hear so many heart-warming anecdotes really has been truly humbling and together, your collective stories combine in order to tell our collective story.

With the lockdown measures now easing, many people are now able to contend with the "new normal" with a greater degree of certainty.

Yet we are committed to continuing what has proved to be an incredibly rewarding initiative going forward.

We will continue to support anyone who reaches out to us. If you know someone who would benefit from this, then please do email us at and we will do our absolute best to facilitate this as quickly as possible.
