It is with great pleasure that I have been asked to write a few lines about the launch of the new Torquay United Supporters Club, and an even greater pleasure that I have been given the opportunity to be the Acting Chairman.
Whether you are an Adult Member or a Junior Gull, it is our intention to offer you a variety of events and opportunities to get closer to the Football Club, to meet the Manager, Players and Club Officials, and generally have some new and exciting experiences.
We hope to organise various events using our new home premises at Boots & Laces as well as the chance to attend football sessions during the pre-season. Some of these events will be free to Members, others will have a small entry fee.
As well as having fun, there is a serious side to our ambitions, and this will include working alongside the Football Club as it extends its involvement in community-based projects. As the official representatives of the Yellow Army we want to play our part in helping local groups and individuals in Torbay, whilst at the same time raising the profile of the Supporters Club and of course, our great Club.
In receiving official status, we have been gifted a unique opportunity to engage with Club officials directly on major decisions affecting the future of the Club. No other body of supporters has this opportunity and it is one that we will respect and take seriously. We will therefore work diligently to ensure that the views of our Members are fairly represented and clearly communicated, in our dialogue with the Football Club.
The Supporters Club is also a member of the Football Supporters Association.
We are official, we are independent, we are the Torquay United Supporters Club.
