The Romford Pele at Grampian Gooners!

It’s only Ray Parlour… at Grampian Gooners HQ!
 
It was an honour to welcome a true Arsenal legend to Grampian Gooners HQ (McGinty’s pub in Aberdeen) for a sportsman’s lunch on the 25th November 2016.
 
Given that we have met up to watch games at McGinty’s pub on Union street Aberdeen for just over a year, it was great to have Ray Parlour in our so called home where he made time to speak to all of the Grampian Gooners personally. He was very down to earth and funny and I enjoyed a good chat with him over a pint. His after dinner speech was full of hilarious stories about his time at Arsenal which everyone enjoyed. 
 
He loved that he was visiting a pub where an Arsenal supporters’ group call home and we got a group photo of the Romford Pelé with some of Grampian Gooners present, holding up the Grampian Gooners banner.

The Long Sleep

Our Chairman – Mike received this – looks a good read

Hi Mike

This is John Sowman, lifelong Arsenal fan and author of the recently published ARSENAL: The Long Sleep 1953-1970, at 384 pages, the biggest book ever written about Arsenal Football Club.
Bob Wilson, your Life President kindly agreed to write the foreword and we made a joint presentation/book signing at the AISA (Arsenal Independent Supporters Association) AGM in London on 6th September last. AISA,of which I am a member, also made a similar cheque donation to yours to the Willow Foundation on that night and I was able to make my own first donation to the same charity from royalties from the book and the Kindle version.
What I am asking is would it be possible for you to make all your members aware of this new publication through my new website www.arsenallongsleep.co.uk  ? On it they would be able to see what the book is all about and read how Bob has really enthused about it. And hopefully, even make a purchase !
Many thanks in advance and hoping to hear from you soon.
Best wishes
John

Dear All
Firstly apologies for the delay in announcing the clubs that have achieved ‘Supporters Club Plus’ status for the season 2016-17. The final 15 from the large number of applications we had in has caused a lot of debate amongst the committee of people who had to choose the clubs. 
If you are not on the list below please do not be despondent we will rotate the ‘Plus’ status each season and there will be some new faces each time, so make sure you get your applications in again.
So here we go:
Bulgaria
Finland
France Brittany
Germany
Norway
Scotland
South Wales
Iceland
London
China Shanghai
Nigeria
Mumbai
Brazil
Sligo
America
We will email each of the clubs above by tomorrow latest with the next step.
Up the Gunners

TICKETS & FACEBOOK

Members please note:
Arsenal have advised all Supporters Clubs that there have been recent cases where a member has posted images of match tickets clearly showing the ticket numbers. Ticket touts have found these images and used them to pretend to unwary buyers that ‘they’ were selling these tickets. As a result payments were made , but NO tickets turned up!
Arsenal fully appreciate that we can be excited about tickets arriving by post but they ask that you do not post images on Facebook.
Recently I posted a picture showing Barcelona Away tickets – but you will note that no numbers were visible.
The advice is – don’t post images of your precious tickets.

Reminder to All Members

If for any reason you cannot attend a match you have purchased a ticket for, for whatever reason. Tickets must be returned to Arsenal Scotland.

Arsenal Scotland will in turn deal with the tickets returned as necessary.

Re-sale of tickets are not permitted at any time.
