5 wins on the row and the feel good factor has well and truly taken over the Salop fans. With only 5 games left most fans have that feeling it will only take 2 wins to be promoted following Bury dropping points on Monday. Of course we want you, the fans, to make Saturday a party atmosphere and help roar the lads closer to that so called ‘line’.
With that we would like to remind all fans that this Saturday is Retro Day and we urge all supporters to wear their favourite (or least favourite) shirts from the Shrewsbury Town past.
Micky Mellon has backed the idea by saying the following
It is a great idea from the fans and something we fully support as we go into these important games.
So with that we would love to see a ‘bumper crowd’ at Greenhous Meadow on Saturday and lets go and make (quoting Bizzy here) a canny owd racket. These last 5 games will be tense, they will be nervy at most times but at no point do you moan or groan. The players feed off the crowd and it is important they feel relaxed and play the football we can.
So for the last 5 times this season #SingYourHeartsOut
The gap is down to 3 points thanks to Stevenage holding Burton Albion to a 1-1 draw at the Pirelli Stadium live on Sky Sports. As always Twitter reacts to the result and we have selected a few of our favourite tweets in reaction to the enthralling game on a very poor pitch.
Friday seems so much bigger now and this is where us, the fans do our bit. Get yourself down Greenhous Meadow and #SingYourHeartsOut and lets urge the lads to the title. We can be the 12th man and we can do our bit. #MMBA #Salop
It is probably the best performance and best result I have had since I come to the club
Those were the words of Salop boss Micky Mellon after a historical win against Fratton Park. The side thats ‘too big for League Two” just did not compete against plucky little Shrewsbury and 2 fantastic goals from Bobby Grant sealed a massive 3 points for Salop.
As always the fans tweeted in their thousands afterwards and we have selected the best for you to see.
So it seems everyone seems very pleased with todays win and it’s been fantastic seeing plenty of Salop fans using #SingYourHeartsOut in their tweets. Now we look to Dagenham on Friday and we look forward to seeing the return of the drum. Don’t forget you can contribute to the game as much as the team so get yourselves down the Meadow and be the 12th man.
We have let you have your say in response to our #SingYourHeartsOutCampaign and the response has been incredible with the majority backing the campaign so before we continue we must thank you all for getting behind our vision.
Many people have suggested bringing the drum back which is a possibility but unfortunately Alex who is the one who owns the drum has declared that it is broke and hasn’t been able to replace it due to finances!
So we turn to you, our fellow Salopians to help with donations to fund for a brand new drum. We have contacted Salop Music and are pricing up a brand new drum to use at all Salop games and hopefully if things go well we will have the new drum at the Dagenham game.
As well as that we are looking at different ideas for the 3 other home games which we have left in the season and we will have something to announce in the next 48 hours in regards to the Exeter game. Also we are drawing up a few ideas for the Plymouth game which will hopefully be a complete sell out in anticipation for the promotion party (Championship party even). Obviously everything we do will be put to the club first and we will be looking for co-operation from all parties involved to make sure we don’t upset everyone.
As always we are still looking for your ideas as to what you think we could do to improve the atmosphere at Greenhous Meadow. You can send all ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet us @SalopsBlueArmy and we will take all ideas in to account.
As said before we do thank everyone for all your support so far and we hope to make #SingYourHeartsOut campaign a successful one and make Greenhous Meadow a noisy, hostile stadium.
