Thanks from the club...link

May I also add my thanks...a sterling job done in the most awful conditions and still with smiles on their faces and as helpful as ever.

Just an example, a friend of mine took his 2 young sons along, as they were leaving the North stand at 1/2 time a Pioneer asked if they would like some poncho's as they were pretty wet, she said she would go and get some. He said not to worry as they were heading for the Olympic bar. 5 mins later she sought them out in the crowd in the bar and gave them the poncho's....

They are certainly now a part of the match day...thank you again.

Brilliant people, a part of what makes a day at AzP worth the 150 mile round trip.

Absolutely great and a credit to themselves and Saracens. It starts for us with the chaps greeting us at the Copthall School car park - always smiling, cheerful and helpful in every way - and they didn't take the mick out of my silly Santa hat either! Hope all Pioneers have a wonderful Christmas and a very Happy New Year - many thanks for all you do.

We're very lucky to have their help with all aspects of help on the day and the personal touch they add is one of the key reasons Allianz Park feels like our home.

Merry Christmas to all of them!

Hear hear! They're brilliant and as a Saracens fan I'm as proud of them as much as our ground and team.

Merry Christmas to them all.

Some people give Ed G a hard time but involving these people was a master stroke

I am amazed how many friendly volunteer Pioneers we have.

I was sceptical when the idea was mooted and request for volunteers went out. But every one that I have spoken to thoroughly enjoy their time helping us. That shows. And we have a thoroughly enjoyable time at Allianz Park made all the more pleasant by the happy band of Pioneers.

My thanks go to every one of them, together with my wishes for a great Christmas and a wonderful New Year!

Thank you.

They are wonderful giving people who deserve all the thanks they receive.

From the guy at the Edgware bus stop before the game to all those on the way and in the ground, a very Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year!!

On behalf of my fellow 'PiONEers, we also salute you all and wish you all a very Happy Christmas, a Healthy, Prosperous and successful New Year.

We look forward to seeing you back at Allianz Park on the 25th & 26th January.

My team and I look after the tunnel area in the West Stand - so next time you are at AP why not come and say hello? I do know a lot of you but would like to put a face to your moniker's as well.

Cheers, Kev

Just to follow on from Kevin's message - it is an enormous privilage and a huge anount of fun working for the Saracens family. The largest element of that family is you - the supporters - and we love being amongst you. Thank you for all your kind comments and for taking us into your hearts. Every good wish for Christmas and 2014 from all of us on The North Stand.

Thank you all, your customer care is better than I have encountered in the 'home' of such things, the USA.

Can I just add my personal message to this thread.

I have lived and worked in London for over thirty years, having arrived from Scotland at a fairly young age. One can quite often get an impression of the capital that its inhabitants are detached, arrogant and aloof (best way I can put it without expletives). The pioneers have been the very icing since AzP opened. I do hope they continue and grow.

A very merry Christmas to all those who volunteer your time and wonderful happy attitude to make our day more special.

Doh! Didn't have the Connacht game in my diary - but now have! cheers for the reminder!

Thank-you to the Pioneers from us as well. We had chocolates from our Pioneer in the North Stand at the Leicester match! All of the Pioneers we have met have been cheerful and very helpful.

As a Quins fan I have had the pleasure of meeting your pioneers twice. They do your club credit. I can only hope they are given a lead position at wembley in March. They offer so much in bringing fans to the game.
I took three newbies to their first away game at the Allianz and they still talk fondly of your guys and girls in blue.

Re: Pioneers....Thanks..

I too would like to add to all the nice things said above on the PiONEers.

They are a credit to the club.
