Club Meeting – 4 August 2016

The meeting was held on 4 August at The Green Man, Pilton, Barnstaple.

10 members attended.

2016/17 Season

It will be difficult to obtain tickets for matches this season – so expect to be disappointed and do not expect to get the tickets! The club can only apply for 10 tickets for each home game – and there is no guarantee that 10 will be allocated. It may therefore be necessary to try to apply for tickets when they go on sale.

3 members are going to the first game of the season – away to Everton
Application for 10 for the Crystal Palace game resulted in just 4 being allocated.
Liverpool game – 9 were allocated, but only 5 were required in the end so 4 were returned to the club!

Giles will apply for 10 tickets for games – please indicate to Giles if you would like to be considered for any allocated. You may be put into the N Devon Spurs “internal ballot” for tickets should numbers required exceed those allocated to the club.

Champions League

Thanks to Giles for spending 6 hours on the computer obtaining 3 match packages for the Champions League at Wembley. As he could only apply for 10 at a time, he had to complete a purchase and log in again to join the queue. (Tip – log in on two (or three different web browsers at the same time next time!!!)

The cost is £83 and Giles would appreciate the funds as soon as possible – preferably payable direct to him rather than the club – as he paid this on his own credit card.

Exact dates of matches are not yet known but you can see the weeks in which they will be played here: –

Transport will be sorted nearer the time.

There was some interest in possibly attending an away match in the Champions League – this will be considered when the other teams are known.
