Nice work Chris.

The club are certainly raising their profile across the region and hopefully this will be relected in more interset, more success and a climb up the table in 2017.

Fans of the sport have drifted away over recent from the club simply down to the product on offer. If we hit the ground running and get a string of wins together the crowds will come back.

We had to do something different and the new approach is a positive step.

Hopefully next season we'll see many more fans at games and we won't know each other by name!

Let's embrace this oppurtunity and look forward with conffidence and fresh positivity.
