Hi Seventeen years ago when Northampton Town Football Club required funds from the supporters I personally sponsored five seats (families names put on them) at a cost of £25. This was for life and not the life of the seat and I refuse to be intimidated by the 'inuendo' that this email should not be shared. The fact it has been entered into the public domain renders that nonenforceable. Now that funding has been provided by the local Council and the seats are being replaced the chairman David Cardoza) has decided quite pompously to not replace the names. When I pointed out politely that surely that was in breach of a legally binding contract I was told I could have the £125 refunded. This I refused and the following emails sum up the contempt with which Cardoza treats the club's supporters I passed this chain of emails on to the Chairman and have spoken to him about the matter. He has confirmed, once again, that we will not be having names on seats in the redeveloped stadium. That is a final decision. As a gesture of goodwill, he is willing to refund the money you paid to have your names on seats. If you would like a refund please confirm the number of seats you have (4 or 5 possibly?), who would like the cheque making out to and where you would like it sending. This is our final offer to resolve this matter and if this is not acceptable to you then I am afraid we are unable to assist further.

I don't give a monkey's how much the directors pay and you are starting to sound like an organ grinder's monkey. Your sort of waffle would alienate a lot of supporters. As I said, without supporters like us there wouldn't be a stadium for the poor dears to put their cushions in. As for supporters moaning about bits coming off :~ 1/ I find that difficult to believe. 2/ So what? 3/ Stuck them on better. Please forward this as well please. An increasingly angry.

The Directors won’t be losing their cushions, but then again they pay very, very heavily for that cushion! Far heavier than any other supporter does. It is not a case of all seats having to look the same, it is a case of bringing a modern look and feel to the stadium and being aware of grumbles we have had from supporters who have had parts of stickers come off on their clothing leading to complaints. It is certainly not a case of looking after just the gin and tonic brigade, it is about providing a comfortable, clean and welcoming environment for all supporters to enjoy the game in, including the ‘gin and tonic’ brigade as much as the next fan. It is the ‘gin and tonic’ brigade whose attendance we hope will help pay a large part of the wages of players who can help us enjoy success next season, benefitting all supporters. Anyhow, I am passing your email on as requested.

In that case could you forward this whole thread. I'm not being pedantic about this but it is a matter of principle. My daughter's for example was the centenary year and the others predate that. I also assume the directors won't be losing their cushions? If it is not resolved then it will leave a very bitter taste in the mouths of some of the most loyal supporters. As I have already said we have seven season tickets that were all renewed before we knew which division we would be in. If it's a case of the seats all having to look the same then It will also start to look like "we are the gin and tonic brigade - stuff the rest". Fingers crossed. Best wishes. Steve XXXXXXX
