Pools are throwing open the gates this Saturday for our Annual Open Day as fans are given the chance to meet the players, be part of the team photo and see the new home kit!
Due to the massive success of last year’s event, we’re bringing back the Open Day for 2019/20 – and we want to make it even bigger and better this time around.
There’ll be fun activities for the whole family throughout the afternoon, with plenty of opportunities to get pictures and autographs with the players and coaching staff.
This year’s event will also coincide with the exciting grand opening of our new Club Shop which has been moved back on to Clarence Road during the summer.
The gates at The Vic will open from 12.30pm when supporters will be asked to take up their seats early over in The Neale Cooper Stand ahead of the big reveal of our all-new O’Neills home strip.
The squad are due to take to the pitch in their fresh look at around 1pm and, after showing off the new kit to fans, you’ll be able to watch as they take their positions for the Official Team Photograph.
Not only that, but we’re also giving the supporters to get involved once again because we’ll be taking another Big Team Photo with the fans included with the players!
Then at around 1.30pm our inflatables and games for young fans will open underneath The Neale Cooper Stand where the players and staff will join in the fun as well!
The Club Shop is due to open its doors for the first time following the photographs, at around 1.45pm and we’ll be fully-stocked with the brand new kit and a range of O’Neills training kit too!
We’re also opening the Centenary Lounge 12.30pm and there will also be a bar open in The Neale Cooper Stand, while we’ll also be making food available for those who get hungry!
Entry is completely free for all fans so make sure you join us for what we know will be a cracking afternoon for everyone concerned with the Club.
