Fans to meet in north west

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

Football supporters in the north west are being invited to a meeting of fans next week.

The meeting, to be held at 7pm Wednesday 1st March, follows on from a meeting in November 2016 when fans came together to discuss the region’s “crisis clubs” such as Blackpool and Blackburn.

A full agenda will be published in due course and those wishing to attend should contact Andy Higgins from Blackpool Supporters’ Trust.

The venue for the meeting is the Leyland Hotel, Leyland Way, Leyland Preson, PR2 4JX – just off Junction 28 of the M6.
