Fortuna Blues Scarf Raising Funds for Beattie Memorabilia Cabinets
Thursday, 14th Nov 2019 10:26

The Fortuna Blues have produced a special commemorative scarf to raise fund for cabinets to house Town legend Kevin Beattie’s memorabilia in Beattie’s, the Sir Alf Ramsey Stand hospitality lounge recently renamed in the defender's honour.

The Fortuna Blues, fans of Bundesliga side Fortuna Düsseldorf, have become a familiar sight at Portman Road in recent years and many of them got to know Beattie during their trips, meeting up with him and chatting with him in the FanZone prior to matches.

This year they are making their annual pilgrimage to Portman Road for the Accrington game on Saturday 11th January when they will be wearing the newly-commissioned scarves as a memento.

An allocation of 100 scarves is available to Town fans via the SLO/Heritage Society hub in the FanZone ahead of the Blackpool home game and post-match in Beattie’s a week on Saturday at a cost of £10 each.

They scarves are selling quickly, so it may be necessary to order ahead of the game, which can be done by emailing with your name and the number of scarves required. Payment in cash will be taken at the game.

If you want a scarf but won’t be at the Blackpool game, email and a way of getting one to you will be found.

Already have one which I got at saturdays cup game, nice well worth it. Great gesture from our friends at Fortuna. Wonder why ME hasn’t paid for these already or are we that skint, maybe I have missed something?

Great gesture though, none the less!

Well done and a nice gesture. I've had a soft spot for them since I worked close by back in 'Auf Wieldershen' days of 78, though missed the charity shield at Wembley through being there.

We're getting lots of email requests already so thank you Phil for putting this up. Everyone will get a reply, but I'm out this pm / eve (England game v Montenegro) and have to save phone battery - the pesky FA are trialling a ticket-via-app thingy (Grr).

So, expect replies and thanks tomorrow!!!

A massive thank-you to everyone who has bought or ordered a scarf. I am delighted to announce that we have already taken orders for all 100 that we were allocated, so well done, Town fans and Phil H for allowing us to advertise.
