Rally Around Rovers - The Next Step
The Rally Around Rovers project group wish to say a heartfelt thanks to all who supported our campaign. The total amount pledged to date is €76,300, 95.45% of this has been gathered.
After the most successful phase in the club's history, this was a completely different kind of season.
On the field, performances and results affected morale, and gate receipts slumped. The response of supporters to the Rally Around Rovers campaign was crucial in halting the decline.
It was a spark that gave the players and the new management team extra determination to dig deep and preserve our Premier Division status when relegation threatened.
Rally Around Rovers badges are already being distributed and they will be available to all members at Friday's game versus Limerick. A full list of all who backed the campaign will be published tomorrow. The supporters abroad receiving their badges via post should receive them next week.
A promise made on the day the project was launched was the following:
“As part of this process we will take a detailed look at the club's running costs, presenting our analysis of this data to supporters and participating in a discussion forum with supporters at the end of the season. All those who join this campaign will be invited to attend and contribute to this evaluation process.”
We are consulting with fans and in the coming days will follow through on that promise, a meeting open to all Rally Around Rovers participants.
And once again we say thank you.
