Former Arsenal Scotland Chairman selected for new Role

Today it was announced that former Arsenal Scotland Chairman Martin O’Donnell has been selected by Arsenal FC to sit on the supporters forum. Current ASSC Chairman Stevie Clark was delighted to reveal the news this morning stating ‘I see this as Arsenal recognising the great work Martin has done on behalf of ASSC over the years but also it indicates the high regard that Arsenal show for our club.’

Martin will take up his role as the UK Supporters Clubs representative on the Forum for the next 2 years.

Congratulations to Martin and also to all of our members.

**Aberdeen proposed meet ups for the first part of the season**

**Aberdeen proposed meet ups for the first part of the season**
It would be good to meet up regularly throughout the season, especially for the big games.
We are lucky to have a long standing relationship with the Number Ten Bar on Queen’s terrace and to have started a good relationship with sister pub McGinty’s on Union street who provided us with excellent hospitality and service yesterday. This included free food and our own private “cave” which contributed to the atmosphere and allowed everyone who attended to get to know each other. Proposed meet ups:
– Arsenal v Liverpool 8pm KO Mon 24th Aug @ McGinty’s bar, Union st (Chris Durling, ASSC treasurer attending to share AGM notes and discuss anything)
– Arsenal v Man Utd 4pm KO Sun 3rd Oct @ Number Ten bar, Queen’s Terrace.
– Arsenal v Spurs 4pm KO Sun 7th Nov @ Number Ten Bar, Queen’s Terrace.
I’m posting this now in the hope that as many of you can come along as possible to these proposed dates. We had a fantastic atmosphere for the cup final @ Number Ten back in May and it would be great to get heathy numbers like that along to a few choice games across this season. Unless you’re at these games, the next best thing is watching them with us!
I will also email communication like this in the future to all North East members as I understand a lot don’t use Facebook.
I look forward to a cracking season watching what I hope will be us going that extra step and seriously challenging for the title. I also look forward to seeing you at the planned meet ups and everyone getting to know each other and continuing to build camaraderie amongst Grampian Gooners within the ASSC. COYG!

Ticket Requests

Ticket requests for all scheduled games must be made four weeks in advance. Any requests later than that will go into a reserve list. Also add that tickets are not guaranteed until the applicants are advised of success so travel bookings are the applicants risk. That applies to every game.

For short notice games such as Cupties and replays applications must be made as soon as possible and not later than ten days before the arranged fixture date.

ASSC Annual trip to the Emirates

The annual trip to the Emirates next season will be to one of the under noted games.

If you are interested in attending the trip next season, please vote for your preferred fixture by mailing me at by Friday 7th August.
Once I have received the votes, I will forward these on to Arsenal and await their response.
