😊 Matchday Family Fun: Morecambe

There is something for everyone on Sunday

2 May 2023

Post-match signing, retro shirt day and Kids in Charge. What a busy Sunday for you ahead of your lunchtime kick-off!

It’s time for you to dig out your old City favourite kit for Retro Shirt day! On top of that it is a reduced Kids in Charge Day. Originally planned for the February half-term it was deferred to the Morecambe game in the expectation of a normalised attendance that would give staff the time to look after their shadows with the extra space needed.

We are grateful to staff and volunteers who give their time to host your youngster, especially when things remain at full tilt for them.

Finally, Super Sunday will end with the usual signing player picture sheet available. All the players will go around the stadium post match to sign your sheets. Please make sure you have a sharpie available! The signing sheets are available with a copy of the Grecian!

Live Music with Sea Dogz

 Make sure you stick around in the Centre Spot after Sunday's match as Sea Dogz, a female fronted classic rock covers band from Dawlish are playing from 2:15pm!  The Post Match Pint offer will be running too!
