The B-Ark / BUSA Initiatives.
« on: September 25, 2021, 12:00:23 PM »
You may have seen that we have just had the first draw fo the BUSA 100 club which thanks to the brilliant work by Mick Small is a great success. Next week we will do a draw for four BUSA members and a guests each to enjoy VIP Box and meals at the fixture versus York City on 26th October courtesy of a very generous Dr Paul Kirk Smith. You have to be in it to win it so please join BUSA by seeing Sandra just inside Ellenders prior to home games.  UTP

The B-Ark / Glen Chapman R I P
« on: January 04, 2021, 05:47:39 PM »
My thoughts and prayers are with Glens wife Pauline and family at this the saddest of times. As everyone knows Glen was Chairman of BUSA and it was my pleasure and privilage to recently serve with him on the committee. A lovely man who's legacy will live on at BUFC and a sad loss to all who knew him. God Bless and Rest In Peace Glen.

The B-Ark / Farsley
« on: December 28, 2020, 05:28:05 PM »
That was without doubt the best performance of the season so far. We know we have a team who can play lovely passing football but we now know we have a team who can mix it when needed. Every player did the business today and what a star and grafter Jordan Burrows is. I know I will receive a few comments but I honestly believe we have a squad that can win this league.  UTP

The B-Ark / Keep everyone on board.
« on: November 16, 2020, 04:15:18 PM »
I am slightly disappointed with the lack of interesting information on the BUFC Official site. Okay it is awful that we are suffering across the board with this horrible pandemic particularly the lack of games but surely there is a need to keep all supporters on board and interested, every time I go to the site there is little other than "Match Off" and the only thing to see is the live cam on the ground. Surely we could stretch to photo's of the facilities inside the stand etc, Perhaps some interviews with the players many of who we have only seen on camera would enable us to get to know them better. There must be more to keep everyone engaged with the club as losing interest could mean losing fans. Hate to be critical but only saying this because I love and miss my club.  UTP

The B-Ark / New Stadium
« on: October 16, 2020, 01:04:55 PM »
Just been looking at the live web cam at the new stadium and have to say that during these worrying times it is really encouraging to see the terracing going in on the far side of the ground. As it looks that the ground is almost ready to host games would it be possible for the youth team to play some games there thus allowing fans in and using these games to carry out the the various testing requirements. I know it may sound desperate and there may be valid reasons why this can't happen what do you think?  UTP

The B-Ark / Season Tickets
« on: October 07, 2020, 06:50:17 PM »
Have received an email from David Newton as others will have done regarding Season Tickets. There are three options for those who have already purchased, Option one is to have a season ticket including streaming of games as from this Saturday versus Guisely with no refund. Option two similar for this and option three a full refund. I hope everyone who is in a position to can as I have done and opt for option one. Clearly the club desperately needs all supporters to help in any way they can to make the club viable this season. I think with the squad that has been put together, the new stadium, and the great result last night they deserve all the help and support we can give be it 50p or £5000 every penny counts.  UTP

The B-Ark / Kettering game
« on: December 28, 2019, 06:14:01 PM »
Not quite a classy game, no really outstanding displays, apalling referee but for me the best win of the season so far. After the shift they put in at that shithole Kings Lynn on a cabbage patch and the fact Kettering had a long rest coming into this game I thought the lads were outstanding. Lovely to see some 1500 home fans present and we need to keep building on this.  UTP.

The B-Ark / Building Together
« on: November 18, 2019, 06:29:37 PM »
The club have announced how we the fans and local companies can get involved in ensuring the new stadium will be completed to the highest specification by donating to any of the various innitiatives put forward on the official site. It enables companies and fans to become involved by donating a few pounds or larger amounts. I am putting this on here so  those who have donated to my JAM JAR COLLECTION may wish to consider ways we can use that money, It doesn't have to be any of the initiatives on the club site it can be anything for the benefit of the fans and the club. I will be in the Pilgrim Lounge prior to the game tomorrow night to hopefully collect all your jam jars, I will then bank the money and let you know the running total, at the moment it stands at £3,326-95. Again thank you all for your generous contributions.  UTP

The B-Ark / Woolford
« on: November 04, 2019, 09:47:02 AM »
Been watching this lad very closely in recent games and am coming to the conclusion that he has been the missing link. We needed a player with a real footballing brain who can instantly control the ball and make it appear he has plenty of time to make the right decisions, this lad seems to be that player as his first touch is exceptional. Saturdays 40 yard diagonal ball to Thewlis for his first goal when it appeared nothing was on was fantastic, likewise his corner for the third goal hit with pace and brilliant precision it was no wonder all the lads made a beeline for him and not the scorer (Thewlis). To me Woolford is one of the best players at this level and Craig is to be congratulated on getting him here. As I say this is my opinion and I accept that most supporters have seen little of him because of all the away games but hopefully they will see what I mean soon.  UTP

The B-Ark / End of season jam jar fund.
« on: April 24, 2019, 12:42:31 PM »
A huge sincere thank you to all my friends and loyal supporters who have donated to this fund. As you know this money will be used for the benefit of the fans in the new stadium and it will be you who generously built up this total ( so far ) who will decide how it will be spent. The collection will carry on and it would be lovely to grow it beyond the end of season amount of a wonderful 3,134 pounds and 66 pence. Again thank you UTP.

The B-Ark / Fans Forum
« on: April 10, 2019, 10:42:13 PM »
A full house for tonight's forum with some good quality questions and suggestions. I asked the first question which was "some people doubt the new stadium will ever be built can you please tell us here and now will the new stadium be built and when will we play in it"?  This was put back to be answered by David Newton when he brought everyone up to date with the progress. When he did this he fully explained in great detail all the work gone into to raise the 11.6 million required and although it was not all there yet explained where it will come from over the near future. It has been a close call to get an extra season at York Street as it is up for sale so it is 99% certain we will have to be in the new stadium for the start of the 20/21 season even if it is not 100% completed. Some good stuff from Craig Elliot which certainly gave me and I know many others encouragement for next season. A good suggestion was put forward that next season there should be some training sessions at York street open for fans to attend and get closer to the players. Craig welcomed that and said he would love to hear of any ideas from supporters that got the team and fans closer. Hope this has been helpful for those not able to be there tonight.
PS The Chairman said fans don't have to wait for a forum to ask questions, He is at most home and away games and is more than happy to update when approached.

The B-Ark / Scandalous remarks by Mark Isaacs.
« on: April 02, 2019, 06:13:19 PM »
Following the scandalous remarks by the above individual today on this forum re the jam jar collection which has led to him being banned, I want to assure everyone that every penny donated by the wonderful people who support it is accounted for and all the paperwork involved and bank details are available for all to see. I also pledge to carry on with the collection and will not be put off by anyone with motives not in the best interest of Boston United FC and it's Supporters.

The B-Ark / Community day.
« on: March 31, 2019, 09:07:16 AM »
How fantastic to see all the families taking part in the many activities on offer and then to see them all watching the game almost 1500 gate, a great turn out. This is what has been sadly lacking at York Street where I have made my feelings known about a poor match day experience, I am sure there will be many of those kids bringing their Dads Grandads etc again particularly if this match day experience becomes a regular feature. Well done to all concerned.

So it has been announced there is to be a fans forum in a couple of weeks. A chance for all those who question the Manager and Board on here to ask them to their faces. As it is a fans forum I ask the question is it open to Ex Fans?
