The Argyle Fans’ Trust is delighted with the news that the club are opening up the Mayflower Terrace for Wednesday’s big game against Liverpool in the FA Cup. The Trust is especially pleased that the club has decided to do this even though it will be making a financial sacrifice in doing so and applauds the sentiment of prioritising supporter satisfaction over profit margins.
The Trust urges the club to consider keeping the terracing in place for future games – including any potential future FA Cup games should we progress against Liverpool and the big Devon Derby match against Exeter on February 11th. The Club is on the cusp of exciting times and the Trust supports examining all options to capitalise upon that, beyond Wednesday’s big tie against Liverpool.
Along with all other football fans, members of the AFT were shocked at the death of Argyle fan Kevin May’s 25 year old son Daniel last Sunday. We applaud both the idea of a celebration of Daniel’s life in the 25th minute of our replay this Wednesday and the gesture from Liverpool fans in sponsoring a banner in his memory. The AFT will be making a donation to the fund set up in Daniel’s name.
There will be an update on the Trust’s AGM within the next few days.
