Friday Night Football
SPL chief executive Neil Doncaster has defended the decision to use a match between Aberdeen and Dunfermline as a pilot for Friday night football. "We've had a lot of feedback from supporters prior to doing this, that they would like to see games on Friday evenings so that's us responding to supporters' demands".
It may suit some supporters, particularly those who work on a Saturday, and it may not suit others. But these are the sort of things that we have to be open-minded to.
What do you think of these proposals? Why not drop an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or come along to our meeting on Monday and have a discussion on the issue. This is YOUR chance to be heard, just simply get involved and make the Falkirk experience a great one!
BairnsTrust are working hard in the background to find a sponsor for the Family Marquee and operate it as as we did last season, It is hoped that we can accomodate parents, kids and also the Junior Bairns pre match, Player visits to allow the kids to get autographs, photographs and parents can have a relaxing refreshment and a snack. There will be a wide range of FFC merchandise and Junior Bairns goodies on sale
