Thursday night saw the launch of the new Nitten Star Supporters Club, set up to bring supporters together, help raise awareness of the club in the village and beyond, raise funds to help subsidise travel to away matches and hold functions in the club for members, and try to assist the football club in attracting local sponsorship.
Office bearers and a committee were appointed, a constitution was adopted and numerous positive suggestions put forward.
Secretary Gordon Stanners said; “We were delighted by the turnout and we look forward to our first committee meeting in a couple of weeks to start putting our plans into action.”
Members will receive a monthly newsletter giving details of matches and forthcoming events, with contributions from supporters, players and management. Annual membership fees have been kept deliberately low at £2 for adults and £1 for concessions. Life memberships are also available for £20 (adults) or £10 (OAPs).
A major recruitment drive will take place at Newtongrange Gala Day on Saturday, June 11.
