Players and Staff Calling Elderly Fans
Saturday, 28th Mar 2020 16:30

Skipper Luke Chambers, other members of the squad and staff are phoning elderly season ticket holders to check how they are during the coronavirus pandemic.

The Government has advised over-70s to avoid all social contact and self-isolate for up to four months during the crisis.

An account of a call Chambers made earlier today to a fan in his eighties was posted on Twitter with the Blues captain pledging to check on him again in a couple of weeks.

Other players and members of staff are also making calls to season ticket holders aged over 70.

Meanwhile, manager Paul Lambert has recorded a video urging fans to keep to the restrictions instituted to limit the spread of the coronavirus.

Well done boys. Your efforts will be appreciated greatly by us oldies, as a means of showing that we truly are all in this together. Respect.

That's a lovely touch from the players and staff and full respect to all of them who do call people but please remember its not just elderly season ticket holders that are in isolation for an extended period, there are a lot of disabled Town season ticket holders whom are also very vulnerable to this virus and have been given the same time frame!

Obv this story applies to season ticket holders, but please everyone in everyday life when you are thinking of checking in on the elderly also think of disabled people of any age!

This is excellent to hear. I have been thinking about the nice older people I speak to every matchday and especially the 86 year old man I get the bus to town and walk to the games with. Well done ITFC.

Lovely touch fro the club,reaching out o the fans the lifeblood of any club is great PR. Would like to see extended to all the fan base as we all contribute in large or small ways. I guess the players have a lot of time on their hands through no fault of their own.

Come on town reach out to old and young.

Every single fit and able in this country is doing this.
What are the club doing with requests for help, resulting from the phone call?

ITFCsince73 added 15:22 - Mar 29
I only ask this question, being a town fan. Do they require help from the local ITFC supporters.

Well done to the players a phone call to any fan will lift their spirits and bring the club closer together.

This would never of happened under a certain former manager. Here is an example of a manager who really wants to embrace the club compared with one that wants to wave two fingers at the fans.

The togetherness is at least as important as the football,,, fortunately.

Dockerblue added 16:31 - Mar 30
Well done Town, the link between fans and club that PL has brought back shines through again.
