Wombwell FC Supporters’ Efforts

When the troubles experienced by the Wombwell Football Club are relegated to history, and the difficulties now to be face are being discussed as trials overcome, some complimentary things will be said of the Supporters.

If not, the local football “fans” of the future will be lacking in appreciation. No section is working harder than this little group upon the often thankless task of keeping Midland League football alive in the township.

Come to hand an optimistic little note from Mr Arthur Pascoe, the secretary of the Supporters Club.

His brother, Johnny Pascoe, a secretary for the football club itself. Mr Arthur Pascoe statement as to the condition of affairs in the Supporters, may be summarised as follows:

Progress, very satisfactory; prospects, distinctly good if the members will put a little more ginger into their efforts; scope, room for as many people like to come, if they are not afraid to work; attractions, opportunity to join in running those happy little sideshow that provide social recreation and enjoyment for the masses and at the same time help to keep the flag flying at Hough Lane; facilities, ample room to ventilate ideas and suggestions which as our no use in themselves, but when Unifi and put into concrete form may be a source of real help to the management.

Mr Pascoe issued a general invitation to the football of the public to attend the Hough Lane ground on Sunday morning at 11. He emphasises the fact that it is impossible to run Midland League football on “gate” money, makes an urgent appeal for support of the Carnival to be held at the Baths Hall tonight, under the auspices of the Supporters Club.
