The upfront product offered was I-Follow from which the clubs gain a direct financial benefit and information on the viewers buy...

Re: Worst crowd

Reported attendances. Both tickets sold and numbers through the turnstile data are collected and the club can choose which to issue. The situation has been confused by clubs have differing policies on this at the same time. Liverpool were slow to use tickets sold, for instance. Information gained vi...

Re: Elm Park Years

In terms of attendances at EP, whilst an incredible 24,046 (the official recorded attendance) squeezed in for the Southampton cup game in 1978 - I was there and remember just seeing a sea of heads - just how they got 33,042 in there for the record gate against Brentford in 1927 in a largely 'the sa...

I've seen somewhere on this thread one poster wishing he had the programme for his first game v Gillingham which I've guessed was 1 Jan 1986. Another poster was after the prog for Barrow at home on 22 Jan 1972. From our enormous store of home progs I've managed to locate both - so for a £2 donation ...

Re: Structured Dialogue!

What's the difference between the Senior Management Meeting and the Structured Dialogue meeting? The Structured Dialogue meeting is a stand-alone meeting where STAR sets the agenda.

Re: Jimmy Wheeler RIP

We'll be asking to the club to ensure there's a minute's silence or applause - whatever is deemed most appropriate. Jimmy was much loved by the fans of his eras. The classic story of a one club man - 450 games for his home town club, a wholehearted trier, a decent pro, top scorer five years in a row...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Queens Park Rangers (h) sponsored by a Merry Christmas to one and all

When we played QPR earlier this season, someone asked which of us are the original hoops. Since then I have found a couple of websites that may give the answer. http://www.kitclassics.co.uk and http://www.historicalkits.co.uk They both say our colours in 1871-72 were blue and white hoops (but don't...

Re: Points

No points for 2019-20 have yet been added but the aim is to have them added by early New Year. If any STAR member feels the lack of these 20 points prevents them qualifying for a ticket purchase, e.g. Fulham away, please call the Ticket Office and they will sort it out. I am 21 points off 3000. Rec...

Re: FA Cup 3rd Round Draw

Carlisle away? Haven't been there in nearly 40 years.

We'll need at least two drivers on each coach!

Personally I'd go for Rochdale or Boston at home.

Royals and Racers Yes there is- Oxfordshire senior cup and no they don`t. Didcot are affiliated to the Berks and bucks FA which is why they can play in it despite being in South Oxfordshire.


Didcot being historically part of Berkshire ...

Until 1974


When we also lost Abingdon and got Slough in exchange.
