BREAKING NEWS

Nothing to do directly with the First Team but it has been expected for some time and a sad one really.

October 12th the daily printing of the Cirizen and Echo newspapers is to cease. They will become a weekly rag.

As news moves more and more online, this can only be expected.

Nothing concerning the paper itself, however its not bad news to me as the newspaper industry is very damaging to the environment with its use of paper, inks and other chemicals.

It's just the march of time.

My daughter-in-law worked for Citizen a few years ago before being made redundant.
She foresaw their dark future when they centralised all editorial business to Bristol.
And to fans at FGR it comes as no surprise when they could not / or refused to have a dedicated reporter at TNL.

BTW: Releasing my d-in-l did her a great favour as she now has a much better paid job with much more secure company.

The demise of local journalism is never a good thing. I know they say they want to focus on their website but the quality of news often deteriorates when it moves online imo.

Sign of the times Colin. The figures don't add up. It also shows why supporting Ash and the SNJ with a click to read is now so important. No clicks no worth. Weird times.

Talking of figures not adding up. Why the hell ate we pressing ahead with the Chinese building us a nuclear reactor when its going to be a factor of 10 more expensive than anything else by the time we're using it. RIP Off Britain.

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
