After the signings of George Thorne and Matty Taylor yesterday there was a real buzz about Oxford United and Chairman Sumrith 'Tiger' Thanakarnjanasuth sent the following email out to non season ticket holders on the club's database. We thought it was worth spreading the word and sharing his message:
“It was the busiest weekend since I came to the club and so many people worked incredibly hard to make things happen. I watched the game at Blackpool on iFollow at home in Thailand and had friends round to watch it: their comments were nearly all about the style of football and how easy to watch this team is.
“That is my message to fans really. Those who have been coming to games have been excellent but there are lots of people out there who love this football club and for one reason or another haven’t been coming to games. We want to change that. We want fans to come and see for themselves what we are building. Today we signed two very exciting players in George Thorne and Matt Taylor and I saw that Matt Taylor signing was trending on Twitter in the UK!
“That’s exciting and is just another sign that we are starting to make things happen here. Our next challenge is to turn that interest in to bigger crowds at matches. We are investing into the team and also the infrastructure at the club and we would love fans to be part of it throughout the season.
“If you buy tickets regularly then why not upgrade that into a season ticket? You save money that way too. And if you saw the signings on social media and wondered what was happening then come to a game and see for yourself. We play Burton at home on Tuesday and then Millwall in the Carabao Cup and Coventry in the league the next Saturday.
“This is a very positive place to be right now, so back Karl and his team and come along and support us.”
