My team Stirling Albion is currently up for sale. Unless the fans come together to buy out the owner there is a serious risk my team will die. Please help me save it. For full details go to http://www.buystirlingalbion.org.uk

As you will see from the link above, we are trying to get people to buy a membership for £40 to save our club. All you are risking is £5 as if it doesn't work out, then you will get £35 back and if it does work out, you will own part of our club and help save it.
In joining up, you will have a say in what the kit looks like, to putting yourself forward to be one of the board members running the club! Taking you one step forward from reality football!!

We have established a presence on two of the internet's biggest social network sites. We would be delighted for you and as many of your friends, family and colleagues as possible to join us.

On Facebook we have an official campaign group with hundreds of members as well as a page for all Supporters Trust news:

Campaign - http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=198214620098
Trust - http://www.facebook.com/pages/Stirl.../76263851866

A Twitter account has also been created to give you all the latest news as it happens straight from the campaign team. Follow Buysafc at http://twitter.com/buysafc

You will also find us on Bebo at http://www.bebo.com/buystirlingalbion and MySpace at http://www.myspace.com/buystirlingalbion

Please join us in the fight to save our team.


Andy is obviously a local guy and we are hoping we can add his name to Ronaldo's, Carlos Alberto, Gary Caldwell, Steven Caldwell, Nick Nairn and Stephen Hendry who are backing oujr campaign to save his local club. Andy and Jamie's grandad Roy played for the Binos and we have been talking to him to try and get Andy to help us. With Andy having an extremely busy schedule (over the moon about the win the other day- you did us all proud. ) it's hard to get a hold of Andy and Jamie to officially back this.
We are going to keep on trying as I know a lot of tennis fans might buy a membership if we get him to back us. Imagine what a photo of Jamie and Andy wearing our t-shirt would do around about the time of wimbledon- the exposure would be world wide (dream land). Please consider us in the meantime for a membership, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the kind words. Here is another way in which you can help-

We are collecting old mobile phones for recycling for the campaign. Not only does it help the environment but our cause will benefit by at least £5.00 when you donate your old mobile. It is easy and it costs you nothing to do.

Send as many old mobiles (removing sim card first) as you can find to:

FREEPOST
RRRA-CZXK-UKEK
Stirling Albion
Vulcan Road North
Norwich
NR6 6AQ.


Most people have old phones tucked away in their homes so please send as many away as possible as this could earn the campaign a lot of money. It doesn't matter if they are broke as we will still get money for them.

There is now a full campaign update for June here-

Andy and Jamie have both signed up for memberships and are backing the campaign. The guys are obviously very busy at the moment, but we are hoping they can help us more. This is fantastic news and hopefully it will persuade some of their fans to sign up and help us too. May thanks to both of them and his grandad who helped make this happen.

Alright people,

Our chairman knocked back our offer to buy the club in July. Since then, the campaign has still been ongoing, whilst the club has been hit with a rent bill of £67k. If they dont pay this by the end of November, then we will get kicked out of our ground.

In the light of this news, we are doubling our efforts to try and sell memberships and t-shirts. The more money we have, the more chance we will have of saving our club, especially if it goes into administration.

With only 10 weeks left to Christmas, we are trying to get football fans of all teams to buy friends and family a membership for their Christamas.

For this, they will technically own a piece of Stirling Albion when we buy over the club. They will also have all the benefits of having this. This will eventually happen as the chairman is getting more and more desperate.

Certainly if your looking for something different to buy a football daft friend/family member, then why not buy them a Scottish club!!


Please help us save my club by buying a membership or t-shirt.

Full details are on here to buy a membership or a t-shirt-

http://www.buystirlingalbion.org.uk/

For those who have signed up, you should receive an e-mail or letter in the next week.

For full news on what we have done, you can check out the trust website at-

http://www.safcst.org.uk/trust/

If we are not able to buy the club, then all members will receive £35 back- like I say, we will do it.

The collection for old mobiles is still on the go as well. Please help by sending any unwanted phones (Please remove the sim) to-

FREEPOST
RRRA-CZXK-UKEK
Stirling Albion
Vulcan Road North
Norwich
NR6 6AQ

Thanks in advance- it's great, greatly appreciated.
