I know it has been mentioned a few times on here, but I thought I’d try and get the ball rolling for a NUTS get together in the second half of this season and as we are about to head into 2024. It’s been too long since the last one! For those not sure, NUTS basically stands for Northern Up The Saddlers; there seems to be a decent number of us, so a chance to do a meet up seems to be something we should do!
One idea I had was to try and meet up linked to the Stockport away game on Jan 13th - maybe meet in Manchester for a drink or two somewhere in Piccadilly Gardens e.g. Wetherspoons, before catching the train down to Stockport for the game.
If this is too short notice and we need another date; if a lot won’t be at the game and want to do another time that isn’t necessarily linked to a game; or if we can do both (!) then I’m welcome to ideas from everyone. Let’s try and make something work, whatever the number of people that can or want to make it. Post your ideas and thoughts below in the thread!
I’ve set up a poll too, to see what people think and get an idea of what numbers might be like.
13th Jan - Stockport game & meet up in Mcr before
Another date during the season - 13th Jan is too soon for me!
Sometime post season - more time and nicer in the summer!
I currently have limited mobility problems (walking/standing). Could we consider a Yorkshire version of this or just a meet up of several NUTS members at the match.
I’m hoping to attend the Harrogate match in February and if all else fails we could arrange a meet up at half time or in the ground before the match starts.
Do we need a NUTS badge to identify us?
No probs mate. Tbh, I wasn’t thinking of staying on after the game, just meeting up for a beer or two before hand but it can be arranged for another time. I was just trying to link it to a game, but I realise it is quite short notice for Stockport.
Is it really 17 years? Doesn’t feel that long ago but it was probably mid 2000s so that would make sense!
Can do either I guess! No reason why there can’t be a few regional ‘franchises’ of NUTS if that suits people and saves too much travel for some, alongside maybe a bigger one somewhere at some point if that is of interest.
If people are at different matches (not sure I’ll make Harrogate) then just meet up between yourselves is a good option. I think if everyone takes there Wrexham half and half scarves that can be the sign of being a NUTter!!
