AOB:

  • We are trying to trace the whereabouts of a World War 1 memorial tablet that used to be at Loakes Park. We have a press cutting on this but would be very keen to have the original.
  • Matchday Badges are being purchased and will be sold by the Trust at the Portsmouth, Accrington and Fleetwood games.
