Supporters Raise Funds for #BringGraysAthHome Campaign

By GAFC News

Supporters galvanising support to raise awareness of the clubs #BringGraysHome campaign

A number of our supporters are raising funds to produce banners, posters, car stickers and flyers to raise awareness of the clubs #BringGraysAthHome campaign. The intention with the guidance of the club is to locate the banners and posters throughout Grays to galvanise support and raise awareness of the clubs bid to return to Grays in a purpose built community football stadium.

Jeff Pedley who is organising the supporters online campaign said: "We have had amazing support online with the campaign, with hundreds of retweets, shares and likes etc. We even had England legend David Seaman sharing info and Man City player Georgia Stanway promoting awareness for us.
There is a massive amount of people yearning for a place to call home. People have been asking me a lot why I’m doing this. As a teacher, I know the positive difference sport makes to children physically and mentally. As fans, it’s massive socially for us too. But, to be honest, it’s nothing to do with football, it’s more about the community- this is an amazing town and it’s time we had something to be really proud about."

As many of our supporters will be aware the club are in talks with Thurrock Council about parcels of land that could deliver the clubs ambitions to return to Grays having led a nomadic life for 8 years since losing the Rec in 2010.
