Just want to say that this is my first season as a Lilywhite supporter and I am incredibly grateful and proud to be one. I came to Salters Lane from the States while in the UK on a University project. The football and the tight knit family of supporters was unparalleled to anything we have here in the US.
A very gracious thank you to the team and management for a great season. I was riveted to my refresh button every weekend.
To the supporters who post reports, videos and pictures on social media (especially this forum), thank you for making the distance between Boston and Salters Lane feel a little shorter.
A raised pint to this season...Another raised pint to next season...and I'll save the last raised pint for when I see some of you next season.
Being a supporter from so far away (only getting to a live game once a year), I am indebted
Good to read your post stateside. Yes, we love our club too so it's nice to hear from a new recruit to our cause. Next time you can make it to the "lane" come and introduce yourself to the Halfway Line shouty men. You know where we are and you should be able to hear us! lol
It tells a story. One that I can very much empathise with.
About 7 years ago, and we're (FTFC) still in the Kent League, I was invited by a work colleague (Herne Bay supporter) who convinced me to pop along to Salters Lane and watch Faversham Town vs Herne Bay in a cup match. We lost I recall, but that was my first introduction to non-league and more specifically FTFC. Despite the loss, it seemed a very, very fine place to be on a Saturday afternoon. Needless to say, I've been hooked ever since.
So, very presumptious of me I know, but my first experience of FTFC seems to be similar to statesidelilywhite's. So, a raised pint to you statesidelilywhite. We go again next season.
And the following season, really look forward to sharing a beer with you in the clubhouse. The beers are on me. Look forward to it.
