Lisa joins the web team and reports on the Open meeting
Here at kfcsa.org.uk we were so impressed with young Lisa’s letter to Mark Snell of the SFA that we offered her a position on the Association web team. Here Lisa writes-up her first report as she writes her thoughts on Open meeting from Thursday night: –
Thanks to everyone at Kfcsa for giving me a huge welcome at my first meeting. Tonight (Thursday) it was questions and answers with my big Italian friend Manuel Pascali, with the cup game getting closer most questions were about the cup final and of course his broken leg.
Pascali remembers that day clearly, when asked how it happened he said ” it was the 10th of February” , he was having a training session as usual and he stretched for the ball as he done this his studs got caught on a bit of turf , but the skipper said “he is not going to blame the pitch for the accident”. The Italian said as soon as he heard the crack he knew something bad had happened, but it could have been worse. With the cup final looming, a member asked the skipper if he would be leading the team out alongside with James Fowler, even though he is in crutches. Pascali said he would love too but wasn’t sure what was going to happen. Although he did reinsure the community members that he will be there in the dressing room and on the coach to spur the boys on. Pascali is currently in talks with management about renewing his contract and has another meeting before the cup final, so here’s hoping he signs a deal and gets well back on the road to recovery for next season.
One of the issues raised in the meeting was about cup final tickets. The tickets for the final are not selling as well as the semi-final and will probably not take as much fans up to Hampden Park than last time, although it could be history in the making. The Kfcsa are also seeking a sponsorship for another card display for cup final at Hampden. If anyone is interested please contact the Kilmarnock Football Club Supporters Association website. There are also some tickets left for The Player of the Year Dance. Many say this year is meant to be bigger and better with big surprises and tons of prizes to walk away with, which includes: signed balls, signed home and away strip, James Fowler’s boots (that he scored against Celtic) and many more. But get your tickets quick because spaces are running out.
