This interview is like something I image is on North Korean radio. There is postivity and there is fantasy. I never realised what wonderful times we are living in under the guidence of the dear leader . Also how on earth is a new kit actually going to make us a better team- in fairness the interviwer is much worse than the head of communications.
That was one of the most cringeworthy interviews I’ve ever heard. The new head of communications obviously hasn’t been told about the hundreds of fans the club has lost as a result of the lack of involvement in the local community.
I don't have any issue with Lawrence getting his mates to help out. Fair play to him for volunteering his time. It might just be me, but not really a fan with how the club engages on social media. They try too hard to project a professional image that lacks the personal touch that draws people to non-league football. Hopefully the new fella will improve things. The interview wasn't great, but agree with Bob that it was more down to the interviewer.
I have no issues with volunteers either, it’s 100% up to the individual to spend their time how they wish, they are rightly praised by many. My issue is more with the hierarchy of the club who don’t really seem to get what non league football is all about. Why is that we need a head of communications and have “cooperate sponsors”?, it’s seems to be as some sort of desperate attempt to be become a professional outfit and forgetting what level the club are really at. They need to focus on getting the crowds and positive atmosphere back at Clarence Park.
Completely agree about them not really getting non league football. The corporate sponsors are good if they plough lots of money in, but it's not something that excites the fans. Also the corporate money should be used to ensure we're not having to pay the highest ticket prices in the league. I'm hoping that all this work will lead to a positive announcement about tickets prices, although I won't hold my breath.

Over a season or two full-time secretary Tom Norman managed to get advertising hoardings the full perimeter of the pitch. That revenue plus cup run prize money and the Junior Morias transfer fee (and Tom Norman's salary once he moved to Stevenage) didn't help with ticket prices, so I'm not sure this will either. I also wonder whether corporate sponsor actually means a club sponsor or is just referring to an advertising hoarding. But again, nothing's been publicised so how would I or my company know?
And we've replaced Tom Norman with who exactly? a volunteer doing it all for free but making all the bad decisions, we want to sound all professional with head of communications and corporate sponsors and we have a guy with no experience of running a NL football club, who used to work for British Gas pulling the strings
I have nothing but admiration for volunteers but I wish they'd be a bit more sympathetic to the people arguing against the admission prices, especially as some of them now don't pay themselves or get in for reduced price
No posts yet as he only joined Twitter this month, but he does follow SACFC as well as City Youth, and is himself followed by Verulam Sport. He's also 'liked' a few messages - in fact, the last five messages posted on the official club channel. I wonder if they've hired him just to boost the numbers of likes and retweets they get on their ridiculous propaganda. It would probably be cheaper to go to one of those Asian click farms
And why is Leigh Page down as Stadium Manager and Safety Officer? I mean, he was Stadium Officer here in 2018, but was Club Secretary here in 2019 and again here in 2020... If someone's added the New Head of Communications / Press Officer surely Leigh's role is due an update as well?
