"We Are FGR"

Postby stroud green » Wed Jul 12, 2017 6:48 pm

Words I thought I would never say but I am going to be an "Author". My limited edition book, together with Forest Green Rovers and Pro Sports Images is now available to pre-order from the club website. It is a photographic journal of the clubs historic season which finished with promotion to the football league for the first time in their history.

I would appreciate all my FGR friends and football lovers to buy now and get your name or that of a loved one on a special subscribers page within the book.

Excellent work - hope it sells well. Still hoping that a DVD of the Play Off Final will become available, but in a way this might be even better, as it will cover the whole season. Have pre-ordered a copy 8-)

Will definitely be adding that to my collection of fgr books. Just a point I would like to make about the forum, can we please have "about fgr" at the bottom amended. "We are currently the longest serving member of the Football Conference" no longer applies, we are now a football league club!! And long may it continue.

Good spot - yes, that does now read a little historically...!

Somebody mentioned nit a few weeks ago and asked Moderators to change it.
I sent LM a PM a couple of days ago about it. No reply and not changed.


Sorry, didn't see your PM as I was in hospital having a heart operation and have only been out a couple of days, I've more to come I'm afraid. I have ask several things to be updated including all the forum links over a month ago but I understand the website is being changed or updated. We will have to see what happens. I have now sent the required change to the bottom of the page "The Old TomCat"

I've had an email conversation this morning with the department looking after the forum. I've requested the changes are made before the season starts with the forum links being the most important. Hope that answers some questions.

Just an update on the book. We are anticipating a release date in October. The book is still available to pre-order by ringing the FGR reception and have your name added to the Subscribers page.

I have seen the first lay out and it looks great.

If anyone is interested, I was on BBC Glos yesterday talking about the book and FGR

A very interesting and informative interview Shane, you came across well.

It's probably just over 30 minutes long and I would recommend a listen but you have to like "Madness" as they are Shane's favourite and several tracks are played.

An update on my book "We Are FGR" for people who have already pre-ordered or are going to buy it . It's been a long process getting everything together and a lot of hard work. However, the final pieces of the jigsaw was put together this morning. The final proof read will take place early next week and hopefully be signed off and sent to the printers. We anticipate it will be ready for sale four weeks from that date. In time for Christmas sales. I have had a sneak preview and it will be worth the wait.

Right, an update on my book.

We have had the first few back from the printers and it looks great. Unfortunately they will not all arrive in time for tomorrow's match.

We will be doing the book launch at the next home league match which is Crewe Alexandra on Saturday 18th November.

The rest of the books should be arriving sometime during the next week and those people who have pre-ordered will receive theirs in the post soon after.

Thanks for being patient but it's worth the wait.

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.
