18 Jun 2012 - Forum for the Future



Tonight sees Doncaster Rovers hold their Forum for the Future event at the Keepmoat Stadium.  The Rovers Chairman, John Ryan, will address the supporters on the future plans for the club, and there will be opportunity for supporters to ask open questions. 

The event has proven to be so popular that a second meeting has had to be scheduled to enable access to all supporters wishing to attend.  The events are free to attend, but tickets must be obtained from the ticket office first.

The "sold out" first event kicks off at 6.15pm, and the VSC will be tweeting live updates for those fans who cannot attend.  Follow these on Twitter using @VSCOfficial or the hashtag #fftf.

Tickets are still available for the second event, which starts at 7.15pm, so if you are able to attend you will be made more than welcome.

The evening will also provide fans with an insight into the results from the recent "In Rovers We Trust" questionnaire, which is a collaborative project between the club and the VSC.  This programme of activities and consultations will enable the club to shape its services, products and experiences to benefit the enjoyment of fans, and puts the fan experience at the heart of decision making.

Its an interesting question.  What makes a match day special, and does the club regularly meet those expectations?  What does the club do that you especially like?  What does it do that you don't particularly like?  And more to the point, just how do you let the club know about these things?


Today sees the VSC and the club together launch a new exciting fan engagement initiative to let supporters....


The "In Rovers We Trust" survey aims to present Rovers supporters with the opportunity to give the club open and frank feedback on all aspects of the matchday experience.  The club recognise that the expectations of supporters vary and there is no single formula which will work for everyone, but by giving your feedback you are helping the club shape the way that it engages with supporters and provides the conditions to ensure a day at the Rovers is a great experience.

The survey does not focus on on-pitch performance, and instead places the emphasis solely on you as a customer of the club, asking a comprehensive set of questions centred around your experiences, views and expectations.  This is a fantastic opportunity to influence the way that the club engages with supporters on matchdays, and I urge all Rovers supporters to be part of this initiative.

Simply click the button below to take the survey, which should take around 15 minutes to complete.



This is the first of a number of activities the VSC has been working with the club to progress over recent weeks, so please keep an eye out for more fan-focussed events and activities over the coming months.

Saturday 28th April 2012 marks the day the Rovers play Ipswich Town in our last nPower Championship match before our (hopefully short) sabbatical in League One.

The Club and the VSC would love it, just love it (in the style of another Doncastrian son) if we could say goodbye to this Division in the same way we said hello to it at Derby County, some 44 glorious months ago - with colour, passion, deafening support and our heads held high.

This season has been difficult for a number of reasons, but in the words of John Ryan, "Please keep the faith and back the club in every possible way you can", and what better way to answer that rallying call than turning up at the Keepmoat stadium to see the club bow of this Division and maybe, just maybe, show a team finishing this campaign comfortably mid-table a thing or two on the way?

Wear your colours, bring your flags, and cheer the team on to one final victory in the Championship.  Remember, its an early kick off (12:30pm).

Rovers 'til WE die.

Calling all Rovers fans (and their families)!  How would you like to appear in a new Channel 4 documentary series, aimed at exploring the issues facing British families in 2012?  Robin Ockleford, a researcher from TwoFour Media, has contacted the VSC to see if any Rovers supporting families would like to take part.  Robin goes on to say......

We're making a landmark series for Channel 4 about what life is really like for British families in this iconic year.  While the attention of the world is on the Diamond Jubilee, Euro 2012 and the Olympics this summer, most of us will be trying harder and harder to get by.  Against this backdrop we're hoping to tell the stories of inspiring, warm and engaging families - from all areas and backgrounds across the UK, living through these tough economic times. 

 

While we are looking for all types of families from all over the country - we would really like a football mad family from Yorkshire to reflect the fact that this summer is not only a big one for the Olympics and the Queen's Jubilee, but for football as well.

 

We'd like to reflect the range of issues faced by families in 2012 - from redundancy, money worries and the need to find a new job, to fears about your own business and paying your rent or mortgage.  We also hope to talk to people on benefit, to really understand the struggles they face.  And to explore the pressures parents deal with - supporting their children, from new babies arriving home to school leavers and graduates, often struggling to find work. 

 

We'd like to talk to families about different relationship stresses too, perhaps how they cope with divorce, or find out what happens when the in-laws have to move in.  Ultimately, we want this to be a definitive series looking at British family life, celebrating their resourcefulness, strength and even humour as they take on the challenges of this year.

 

We're currently researching the series and would like to speak to as many families as possible about their experiences. Any conversations will be informal and confidential and do not commit people to taking part.  I'd be really grateful if you would let me post on your forums or help me get in touch with Donny fan-families in any other way you might know of.

 

Best wishes,

Robin

 

If you and your family would like to take part in this documentary, please contact Robin directly on 0207 438 1871 or via www.facebook.com/2012Families

A warm welcome from the VSC team to the new, improved, “go-faster” VSC website!

It’s fair to say the old site had “issues” and despite many lost hours of adjustment, reconfiguration and tweaking we were unable to resolve all the problems, so we took the plunge and designed a new site from the ground up.
 
To existing members and users of the VSC site, we’d like to thank you for your patience whilst we tried to fix the old site and develop this new one, and to former users and new users alike we hope you like what we’ve done with the site.  It is a little bit different, but hopefully just familiar enough for you to feel at home.

We’ve also developed a new “mobile version” of the site, which is much more efficient, downloads less data (so is ideal for those with limited mobile data tariffs) and simpler to work on a phone.  Just log on to the normal web address on your smartphone and the website does the rest.

Users of the forum will also notice that all their posts have been migrated across from the old website already (hopefully nothing got lost or broken by the removal men!) so we start where we left off.

You will also be able to see the VSC’s new aims and objectives, rules and policies on the site, and there will undoubtedly be exciting times ahead for the Supporters Trust movement.  Maybe even some of you reading this now would like to become involved and join the Directors of the VSC in making a difference to our club.  Watch this space over the coming weeks for more on this.

Dive on in, and let’s give the team our full support for the run in to the season.

The VSC Directors

PS - there are a few new features in this forum, including buddy/ignored user management and easier social media integration.  We also have plans to "drip release" more features over the coming weeks!
