A Big Thank-you to City!

July 22, 2014

CityPressWHILE we are celebrating the arrival of the colourful revamped Sons View for season 2014/15 (which we really hope you enjoy!), it would be remiss not to put in a word for City Press — who have been our print and design partners for the past eleven years.

The fresh programme is being produced by excellent new partners Garthland Print and Design, about whom more later. But we could not have got where we are today without the dedication, hard work and friendliness of Andrew Stephen and Jeff Moir at City, who are based in Brechin and have offered us excellent value.

Andrew says: “It has been an absolute pleasure printing the programme over the years and watching the team move into the Championship… I personally will miss my chats with [editor] Graeme [Robertson] about everything football.”

The Sonstrust want heartily to recommend City to others looking to find an adaptable, reliable, local printer.

They offer a range of printed materials from low cost A5 leaflets for pushing through letter boxes or placing in shoppers’ hands, through to fine printed wedding, celebration and guest invitations, small publications, raffle tickets, photographic productions… you name it! More details here.

Thanks, Andrew and Jeff. We appreciate what you’ve done and hope we can continue to push a wee bit of business in your direction.

Sons Fans Invited to Have Their Say

SDS-LogoALL Sons fans are invited to take part in an online survey about your experiences of attending football matches in Scotland during the last full season (2013/14).

The survey is being carried out by Supporters Direct Scotland has been commissioned by the Scottish Government as part of a wider project being carried out by ScotCen Social Research and the University of Stirling.

This is the second stage of the research so you may have taken part in a similar survey last year. But it is still important that you are involved this time round.

The surveyors are interested in your experiences of attending football matches last season, as well as your views on what you regard as acceptable or unacceptable behaviour by supporters at football matches.

You can complete this survey whether you took part in last year’s survey or not.

Your participation is voluntary and all answers provided will be confidential.

The survey will take no longer than 15 minutes to complete. To take part please click on the link here: http://www.natcen-surveys.co.uk/footballinscotland/
