Calling Blues in the South West
Calling Blues in the South West
Wednesday, 10th Jul 2013 10:44

University of Bath-based Blues supporter James Farthing is gauging interest in setting up a South West of England branch of the Supporters Club. While there are branches all over the UK and world, there currently isn’t one in that part of the country.

James asks anyone interested to send an email to with the subject line SW ITFC Your Name, for example SW ITFC James Farthing, making sure it contains the following information:

Full name

Email address you would like to be contacted on

Location. Nearest town or city is fine, just to identify the main locations in the South West where people live

And any other information that you may feel appropriate

Good luck with that
Are there any Harrogate based Ipswich fans who might want to split costs on driving to the odd match?

I was in Brixham on saturday devonboy88, nice place.

I really hope this group gets going too. I'm guessing a lot of the people looking to sign up are also going to the Chippenham friendly

Is Weymouth, Dorset too far out?

devonboy88 added 12:50 - Jul 10

Steve Mellen would be worth an email aswell. I think he's sports editor at Bristol Evening Post now so may be able to get the message out.

exeterblue10 added 13:15 - Jul 10
Count me in. I reckon there's probably a few of us in Exeter...

ericgatesrules added 14:11 - Jul 10
Great idea. Signed up... as will a few more in Bristol for sure.

HarryfromBath added 14:24 - Jul 10
Cheers, whoseroundisitanyway. I know a dozen or so Ipswich fans who are not TWTD posters, and there were a good few supporters who chipped in when this was started as a thread yesterday. Fair play to James for getting this started.

TWTD has been both a lifeline and a godsend for most ITFC supporters living away from the county. We have been able both to keep in touch with news and have really good discussions with fellow supporters, and it would be wonderful if we could get a supporters club off the ground.

Good luck James hope you get a decent response.

Is there a website, facebook page for London based supporters?


linhdi added 14:34 - Jul 10
London branch chair is David Gale, email is

There's no website or facebook page so far as I am aware, but if you send David an email you'll get added to membership and get emails with branch updates. Branch holds several socials a yeaer, including at least one with first team players & Milts. Back end of last season, we also had a pub meet-and-greet with Ian Milne, new joint-MD. There's also a highly successful darts team, and many of us meet up around away games, especially in the London area.

Good on yer Harry, I knew you would rally to the cause.

Special_A added 15:24 - Jul 10
Cheers Linhdi!

I will send Dave an email

Surco72 added 16:38 - Jul 10

jamesitfc added 16:42 - Jul 10
If you haven't already, make sure you send me an email on the above email address so I can add you all to the mailing list and everyone can be kept in the loop!

Ole_Pablo_Ole added 16:48 - Jul 10
Any idea on how many people are interested yet James?

jamesitfc added 23:01 - Jul 10
Yeah, had a great response! 65 people so far have sent me an email saying they are interested which is great. I'm currently composing an email myself to send round to everyone interested with a few details and ideas!
