Detmer: This Train Has Left the Station
Tuesday, 28th Sep 2021 16:06
Blues co-owner Mark Detmer says “this train has left the station” under the club's new ownership and says his message to fans is to stay positive.
Detmer is one of the Three Lions who own five per cent of Gamechanger 20 Ltd, who completed their takeover of the club in April.
Speaking to iFollow Ipswich, Detmer was asked for his message to fans at this point in the season.
“I think it’s ‘Stay positive’,” he said. “I think there’s so much to be said that you get 21,000, 22,000 out to a match, you know people are working hard, you may not see it each and every day, but working hard for that result on Tuesday and when we come up against Accrington on Saturday.
“Know that the tireless work, effort, energy, positivity, and that if we keep pouring that into the club the results will follow.
“I really appreciate the support that we’ve seen in the community and for those that are on board with us, this train has left the station under our ownership group and we want everyone to get on board.
“And with that again, we’ll work tirelessly to get those results on Tuesdays and Saturdays.”
None of the Three Lions have yet been at a game with Covid restrictions and then their diaries having thwarted them up to now, however, Detmer says he can’t wait to get over and finally meet everyone face to face.
“Zoom has been great as an intermediary, but there’s nothing like meeting in person,” he said.
“You really get a sense of people and hopefully if comes across how genuine we are with our love for the club and our desire to move the club forward each and every day.
“Everybody’s working really hard behind the scenes, that isn’t always reflective of the result we were receiving earlier in the season but hopefully after Lincoln we’ve turned that corner and we continue to post more and more points.”
He says the community is at the centre of their aims for the club: “We definitely do, community is such a big part of what we’re all about and so getting there I think will be game-changing for us, to use the pun.
“It’s really, really been important and we’ve been working on a couple of different dates for travel.”

The Professional Footballers Who Never Play Football by Broganonthewing
There have been many changes to the English game in the last 40 years. The majority of these changes, if not all of them have all been influenced or dictated by money, both the making and saving of it.
Catch-19 by LegendRay
How many others on the site remember April 15 1961, the day, as TWTD recalls, when Town last beat Lincoln away in the league?
Cook is No Gamechanger by BossMan
I was 12 when we won the FA Cup so saw early success in my early years as a Town fan. How spoilt I was to see Beattie, Wark, Muhren Thijssen et al.
Building a High Performance Team at ITFC by Jaime_Clapham
Change is hard. Building a team is hard. Just reflect on what it’s like within the organisations that you work in, or when you are kicking off a new project. A football club and team are no different.
Marathon Blues by wadey
As some of you may be aware, we lost our little boy Tyler on 1st April 2012, aged just 15 months old. There was no cause declared and he just passed away in his sleep. Since then, I’ve tried to raise as much money for charity in memory of him.
