FansFirst Scotland Up and Running

July 21, 2012

WITH debate about the future of Scottish football still running hot in the wake of the Newco controversy, a new campaign has been set up to press the case for far-reaching reform of the game.

FansFirst Scotland (‘Claiming Back Scottish Football’) made its first appearance in the national media last weekend and has already garnered hundreds of expressions of interest and support.

The new initiative has been set up jointly by a group involving Sonstrust Board member Simon Barrow, along with the main architect of an alternative, supporter-driven plan for the future of Scottish football, Alasdair Galloway (our Andy’s dad!), and four other members of significnt fans’ groups – including the newly-formed Dons Supporters Together.

DST have already made a name for themselves by helping to galvanise ‘Sell-Out Saturday’ to encourage armchair fans to come along and support their local teams at the beginning of a season where finances are going to be especially tough after the Rangers debacle.

In Dumbarton’s case the SOS message is ‘Support Our Sons’, of course!

Meanwhile, FansFirst Scotland has issued a call for major reform of Scottish football. It will soon be unveiling the new version of its Plan (based on two extensive 2010 and 2011 surveys of fans), and setting in motion a ‘Claim of Right’ for what many see as the national game. It also has an active blog, ScotsFitbaFirst, and has backed the SOS campaign.

For more information and to show your support, go to the website, like the page on Facebook (along with DFC legend Lawrie Williams and others!), and follow @FansFirstScot on Twitter.
