Countdown to Cheltenham: A Fans Day

With just 3 home to go and the Grecians not safe from relegation yet, groups of fans are using flybe_fans_thumbtheir own initiative to bring some supportive atmosphere to St James Park on Saturday.

Using Exeweb, Alan Crockford has called on Exeter fans to turn up on the Big Bank and support the team. Using Dylan Thomas Crockford poem “Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night” he’s said “If you’ve tried moaning, sulking, nail-biting or suffering in silence, why not let your heart rule your head and simply throw yourself into loud and proud support for Exeter City”. The last verse of that poem says:-

And you, my father, there on that sad height,fans_sjp_old_grandstand_feat
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

A separate group has been set up on Facebook looking to recreate the old Cowshed atmosphere. Block E has been reserved for this group, plus they have exclusive use of the Grecian Lounge and Bar. The Facebook group is called “Cheltenham Home Event”. Tickets for this event can be bought from the Club’s reception.Exeter City v Newport County

Will they recreate the old chant of “Sing up Big Bank”! Or will the Big Bank be chanting “Sing up Tea Stand”?

However, the Club have nothing planned to encourage support and no rallying call. It’s clearly down to the fans to create the support to fight relegation. Time to end Cheltenham’s 100% record against the Grecians.
