Northeast division meeting, 21st August

The Football Supporters’ Federation has recently launched a Northeast Division, meeting this Thursday 21st August at the Irish Centre inNewcastle at 7.30pm. The venue (Irish Centre,43-49 Gallowgate Street,NE1 4SG) is close to St. James and Monument Metro stations. The division has representation from across the region and beyond (we even let in the odd NE-basedHalifax fan).

This is the third meeting of the division following events in Durham and Sunderland, and we’re very keen to get new members along, so feel free to pass this on to anyone who maybe interested, FSF member or not.

Apart from looking at the wider campaigning work the FSF does around Game 39, Safe Standing and ticket pricing the division will also focus on issues which directly impact upon NE supporters such as policing and kick-off times of our derby games and rail ticket pricing and policy. Division reps have already met with the Chief Inspector of Northumbria Police and the National Rail forum to discuss these issues.

So if you fancy a few pints, a bit of football banter, and want things for the average fan to change for the better, get involved.
