Re: RIP Fred Wickert aged 87

The family has asked if Fred could be remembered tomorrow with applause at the 87th minute. I'm told by the club these tributes are now fan-led, so if applause starts then they will put up a photo of Fred on the main screens.

It's up to us to get the word out.

Re: Irons Supporting Foodbanks

We're back again tomorrow collecting for Newham Foodbank at the same location, from 12 until 2.30pm. For those attending the demo, we're only a few minutes walk away on the next bridge so come over and see us. Any effort would be really appreciated. There was an article published yesterday reporting...

RIP Fred Wickert aged 87

Fred sadly passed away at his home in Lincolnshire last weekend. He was a home and away season ticket holder, and mostly travelled to games with his pal Mick, in his 70's, who drove them. He would always be sat in the front row at away games with his Bovril, and always had time for a chat. I had the...

Re: Irons Supporting Foodbanks

What you do as football fans for the community doesn't go un-noticed by the general public. The One Show were filming the football foodbank activity at the Liverpool cup derby on Sunday. I'm told that this will feature on the programme this evening or Thursday at 7pm. Also, Liverpool city and Newcas...

Re: Irons Supporting Foodbanks

I'm pleased to advise that we've received this morning the go ahead from LS185 and Newham Council to continue the foodbank collections for the rest of the season, pending any high risk matches. We'll be at the same place at 12 noon before the Everton game on the 18th. Nearer the time we'll put a sho...

Re: Irons Supporting Foodbanks

Just a reminder that there won't be a foodbank collection before the Bournemouth game tomorrow. LS185 are still to review the processes from Saturday's event. We more or less got the ok to continue from the LS185 Event Manager, I've sent our assessment through, and hopefully we can go again before t...

Apologies on behalf of CH but his PC packed up yesterday, so there'll be no Daily News & Gossip until he gets a replacement sorted.

NorthernIron,
Great scheme and very well done for starting it up.
Are you the same guy that runs the food bank in Beckton?
Not me. Joel is the guy who runs the Newham Foodbank on Tollgate Road, Beckton.

He'll be there with us on Saturday.
