To each and every single one of our valued petition signatories – we need YOU!
You last heard from the Bring Back The Loggerheads campaign back in May. We asked for your thoughts on the ‘badge issue’ and then submitted them for consideration at the Supporters’ Parliament Badge Meeting. The dozens of passionate responses confirmed what we have known for over seven years; the Loggerheads crest is the club’s true badge and should be reinstated immediately.
During the Badge Meeting, it was agreed that a vote will take place with Town fans voting in response to the question: ‘Do you think that Shrewsbury Town FC should change their current badge?’. The vote has been open since June, and will close at the end of August 2014.
The club have confirmed that they will accept a majority decision. If more than 50% of the votes cast are YES votes; the irrelevant clip art lion will be removed and a new badge introduced ahead of the 2015/16 season. We are closer than ever before to restoring a crest which represents the history, heritage and identity of our beloved football club – but we still need YOUR help!
While there’s been an unbelievable response so far – with 700 votes being received over the pre-season period – many reading this message will not yet have voted. Please, please, please VOTE YES and edge us ever closer to victory.
Voting is easy – it only takes 30 seconds and you can vote online through this link: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/BadgeVote
In order for your vote to count, you will need your unique Supporter Number which can be found on the bottom left-hand corner of ticket stubs. If you cannot find yours, please contact the club directly (01743 289177) and they will happily tell you.
To have the opportunity to vote on the club’s badge is a truly historic development and one we never expected to happen! We are nearly there but need as many YES votes as possible. After all, to VOTE YES is to vote in favour of our club’s heritage and future commercial interests.
Please don’t delay. VOTE YES today!
Floreat Salopia and Thank You,
Bring Back The Loggerheads
