Dear fellow petitioners

We have a few quick updates on our Save North Ferriby campaign to share.

"View from the Allotment End" fanzine - Please order your copy

Firstly, we have sent issue 11 off to the printers. Once again we are really impressed with the quality of the contributions received. For the cover of this issue we drew upon the tradition of the Penguin murder mystery books to give an ominous and sinister feel. Our talented designer, Alex, has come up with an amazing creation (cropped image above). All profits will go to one of our local homeless charities - Emmaus Hull. In this issue we review Ferriby's current plight and recent event but also we have lots of items of general footballing and cultural interest. 48 pages | Full colour | £2.50 UK posted. Full content and ordering details can be found here. We will also be selling it outside the ground at our home Gainsborough Trinity fixture on the 23rd February. Issue 10 is still available here.

North Ferriby Winding Up Petition published

We understand that debts in the club have been mounting and yesterday the widely rumoured winding up petition was published in the London Gazette. This is for pitch maintenance work. We will follow the proceedings with interest. This could be the event that seals Ferriby's fate in its current guise unless the club settle the debt.

Appeal of the NPL's rejection of the name change application

On Monday this week, the FA were due to hear the club's appeal to the NPL's rejection of the relocation application. Frustratingly for all parties, the FA made an error with the paperwork and the hearing was adjourned. If the appeal had been heard and rejected (as we'd hope) it would have, most likely, ended Messrs Waltham and Chadwick's interest in this matter. Although questions would, of course, still remain as to the future of the club. 

With all best wishes. Thank you.
