Portman Pie Looking to Repeat Success
Friday, 17th Feb 2012 12:29
Town’s Portman Pie was voted a different gravy by fans last season when it carried off the Hospitality and Catering News Best Pie League and the Blues are hoping to top the pie charts once again this year.
The Pie League, which is sponsored by Moduline, began last year after a Crawley fan, who had gone to Old Trafford for their FA Cup tie, told Hospitality and Catering News how much he had enjoyed Manchester United’s pies and wondered which other clubs were amongst football’s upper crust. After months of voting, it was Town’s Portman Pie which tasted success.
The Blues’ head of conference and banqueting Mike Rieder hopes fans will help the Portman Pie to retain its title, telling TWTD: “We were really pleased to win the Hospitality and Catering News Best Pie League last season, as it endorses our commitment to providing quality products for our fans.
“We have seen a growing demand for the Portman Pie and have it available in all kiosks this season, as well as developing a pie-only kiosk in the lower South Stand.
“The pie is a bit more expensive due to its use of quality beef and lashings of Adnams ale but our fans are discerning and appreciate this level of quality doesn’t come cheap and it is worth paying a little but extra.
“I hope the fans get behind the pie again this season so we can retain our title, which will be tough as we are competing against the big clubs with a lot more fans (and possibly less of a discerning palate!).
“We are currently in seventh place so we need the fans to start voting via Facebook. This can also be done by using the QR code on the napkins given out with the Portman Pies. Don’t forget to put in a football-related comment or quip as this will also get an extra five points."

Top Six Might Be More Realistic With This One-Dimensional Squad and Stubborn Manager by Pickersblue22
Sunday’s 2-0 defeat at Norwich was both painful and disappointing. It is never nice to lose to your arch-rivals, especially given our recent record against them, but in many ways, this game re-affirmed what we already know about Town’s shortcomings.
