Gallowgate Flags have appealed for their fellow fans to help.

Sunday will see their biggest ever display for the visit of Liverpool but there is a problem.

The flags organisers have revealed that previous displays have relied on only 25 volunteers coming forward to help but on this occasion, four times that number are needed to make it happen to have the fell effect.

Gallowgate Flags appeal for help:

‘If you’re able to help for the weekend – we’re planning our biggest display yet with FOUR surfer flags, one new Northern Soul one funded entirely through t-shirt sales. 200 people from all over the world have bought t-shirts which match the design of the flag. We also plan to have all of our old shirt flags out for the first time.

In addition we have a brand new banner which will be revealed on the day – and we need up to 60 people to help us hold it up and 100 (volunteers) in total.

If fans think of the biggest displays they’ve seen at St James Park then they may be surprised to hear we’ve had no more than 25 people volunteer to make those displays happen. For this display we need 100 people.

We’re really hoping that of the 8,000 people in the Gallowgate End, we can attract at least 100 people to help make this possible, in front of the watching world.

The game is significant as it brings together two sets of football fans who adore Rafa Benitez and that’s what our home made banner will be demonstrating.

We believe it will be the biggest home made banner in British football.’

Timings on Sunday – opportunities to help:

12 Noon – come to St James Park  and help with the final run through – meet at the Glass Atrium in the Milburn Stand (main entrance), opposite the players’ entrance.

3pm – Meet where there will be songs and flags at the North Terrace Pub, then walk with flags and songs to the ground through Leazes Park and then the city.

4pm – Any other volunteers meet at Access (gate) 11 in the Gallowgate Concourse, which is at the end of the Bar and next to the Chicago Town Pizza Stand.’

    A question for Gallowgate flags…

    Why are you purchasing supplies from and advocating fans use a Polish organisation that appears to be a Neo-Nazi front?

    • Oooh bobbi fleckman

      Go on, explain.

      • Leazes Ender

        Are you Gallowgate flags?

        • Oooh bobbi fleckman

          Which Polish supplier?

          • Leazes Ender

            There’s only one on the Gallowgate flags site….. go press the link.

            Are you going to defend this as well fleckman?

          • Oooh bobbi fleckman

            So you are saying ‘ultra shop’ is a Neo-Nazi organisation? I’ve never heard of them, do you have any information to back this claim up?

  • Leazes Ender

    This is a genuine question for Alex Hurst owner of Phoenix Taxis

    Why are you purchasing supplies from, and advocating fans use a Polish organisation that appears to be a Neo-Nazi front?

    This is really dodgy stuff mate….Are you funding these causes?

    • Oooh bobbi fleckman

      I’ll ask again, you seem to be implying that ‘ultra shop’ is a Neo-Nazi organisation? I’ve never heard of them, do you have any information to back this claim up?

      And if you don’t have anything to back this claim up, please don’t make these accusations on a forum that adversely affect a business.

    • Oooh bobbi fleckman

      If you are not right, The Mag & / or yourself is going to be sued. Be very careful what you accuse people of.

    • Rich Lawson

      The one of Ashley dressed as Hermann Goering is going to get a bit of media attention then !!

  • Leazes Ender

    No Reply from Alex?

    • Mark Davies

      Jeez man. Give it a rest you self righteous sad settee ender prat. Its not like you can help out is it

    • Oooh bobbi fleckman

      Back up and explain your claim or delete it. Why don’t you get off your settee and offer to help (although you will need to actually go to the game) and then you can raise your concerns direct rather than via a media which the organisers are unlikely to see?

    • Oooh bobbi fleckman

      So, as ever, settee ender has made a claim based on no facts whatsoever.
