We hope this slight re-adjustment to the original Pre-Season schedule (promoted on Twitter only this very afternoon) doesn't cause too much consternation.
If anything, playing on a balmy, summer Friday evening will likely be more preferable to all concerned, should Saturday 15th July turn out to be a scorcher of biblical proportions!
Sticking with the Pre-Season offerings, having previously had a barren date on Saturday 5th August (the week before the scheduled start of the Evo-Stik NPL First Division South season), we received excellent news over the weekend that Halesowen Town will host us on that day (KO: 3.00pm). Thanks to our Evo-Stik NPL Premier brethren in the Midlands - should be a great day out with the fabuloulsy nicknamed 'Yeltz'!
More details relevant to directions/admission prices at all locations where the Tulips' will exercise their Pre-Season limbs will be posted on the website/social media in the coming days/weeks, as & when we have accurate information.
There's not much more to report on the incoming/outgoing transfer front, with manager Chris Rawlinson reportedly very happy with the business done to date.
One thing that never abates at this time of year is the willingness of staff behind the scenes to approach all manner of individuals/businesses in the hope that we can attract much-needed engagement/funding by way of Season Ticket sales, additional Corporate Sponsorship (Shirts, Shorts, Players/Staff, etc) Advertising Revenue (via such as Pitchside Hoardings, Web Banners, Matchday Programme Ads, etc) and Matchday Sponsorship (incredible value at just £250 per match).
Attached with this post you'll find a link to our latest 2017/18 Commercial Portfolio which outlines the wide variety of opportunities available. Anyone interested in teaming up with the Tulips, please contact Jake Whiteley via mobile on 07841 262604 or email via firstname.lastname@example.org
Look out for more exciting news this week relevant to the new Spalding United Personal Sponsor (SUPS) Member Scheme, which also includes membership of the long-standing Tulips 200 Club. The new scheme offers a range of matchday membership benefits to all those who join plus the chance to win regular cash prizes - all this in exchange for a small weekly membership fee. Full details on the website later this week!
We will also soon be unveiling full details of the annual SUFC Sports Celebrity Dinner which this year will take place on Thursday 21st September 2017.
Last year we were delighted to have the hugely popular Ian Wright as guest speaker; rumour has it that this year we have another guest from the world of football who we think will prove to be equally as engaging, entertaining & enlightening as the ex-Gooner maestro was last year - watch this space for firm news later this week!...
Right, the weather's set to improve drastically - time to hunt down that oversize mankini: more news soon!
