Open Day at Fir Park

Last updated : 25 July 2004 By Firparkcorner

The full squad was on duty signing autographs and posing for pictures. Hundreds queued up under the South Stand to have a word with the players. Claret and Amber were kept busy entertaining younger fans and a five-a-side tournament occupied the more active fans.

The new pitch looks good

At two thirty there was an opportunity to bash the players with wet sponges.

Terry and the team busy signing autographs

There was a chance to beat the goalie and demonstrate shooting skills at the Target Football stall. The passageway at the back of the East Stand was busy with a variety of stalls. Representatives from the WellTrust were on hand with a quiz, a club stall was selling team pictures and season tickets, facepaintingwas available, food outlets were open and Fatcalf had a fanzine stall.

Beat the goalie in full swing

The club shop was very busy and the new strip was selling in large numbers. There was a sizeable queue waiting for the shop to open and a by a couple of hours into the day cistomers were being allowed in to the shop in number to balance those leaving. Whatever reservations fans may have had over the new design seemed to do little to reduce sales on this gala day at Fir Park.

Anyone gonnae buy a ticket?
