Louby’s Mobile Catering are supporting Ilkeston FC AND our Supporters Group this season with food and drink refreshments at the New Manor Ground.

Louby’s are situated at various points of the ground and some of the profits from the day are pumped back into the Football Club, giving fans even more reason to chose Louby’s.

The Matchday Menu includes:

Large pie and chips £3.50
Large pie, chips, peas and gravy £4.50
Large chicken curry and chips £3.00
Large kebab meat and chips £3.00
Kebab wrap £3.50 (with chips £4.50)
Pot of peas £1.00

IFCSG members who spend £3.00 or more, (and on production of their membership card) can get a FREE hot or cold drink.

So why not visit Louby’s at the New Manor Ground on matchday.


A message from the Chairman

It won’t be long before the football season is upon us and I for one cannot wait. 2013-14 promises to be an exciting season for Ilkeston FC and with record season ticket sales being made already it seems many people believe it will be too.

After last season’s excellent progress expectations are high. But we must learn to be patient, especially as we may be fielding some talented but inexperienced players during the season. Young players have yet to develop the sort of consistency gained only through experience. So although we will all be hoping that the Robins will be ‘in the mix’ at the end of the season, failure to win promotion will by no means be a disaster. After all, the aim of the club was to reach the Conference North in five years and we are only one step away as we head into our third season. There is still plenty of time!

2013-14 also promises to be an exciting time for the IFCSG. We are planning some exciting fundraising initiatives which we plan to use to help the club. Discretion means that I can’t divulge more at this point but watch this space or the forums!

The IFCSG is also mounting a campaign to improve pedestrian safety around the New Manor Ground. We are trying to galvanise support for the laying of a footpath or pavement from the canal bridge to the entrance of the ground, and a petition is available to sign online – see elsewhere on this site for details – or on sheets being provided by IFCSG committee members on matchdays. We welcome your support in this matter.

There has never been a better time to be a member of the IFCSG. Following a lead from the football club’s ground admittance policy, we have frozen membership fees at £5 for adults and £1 for juniors until May 2014. Membership benefits include discounted away match travel, free Ilkeston FC club membership, free hire of the function room at the Sir John Warren, bring a friend at half price to two games from a selected list, and free entry into free match tickets draws – plus much more.

So an exciting time lies ahead and I’m thrilled to be IFCSG chairman when there’s so much to look forward to. But we also need your support to help drive the club forward and to protect it for future generations. Join the IFCSG now! The £5 you spend today will bring you so much more over the next twelve months. Roll on August!

Ilkeston gets it’s station back.

Ilkeston may well be on the road, or should that be rail to recovery, after news was released that funding has been secured and a station is set to be built in 2014. With the national news dominated with the high speed train network, it’s refreshing to see some politicians seeing the bigger picture and focusing in the regional areas, especially Ilkeston which will greatly benefit from a station.

It’s one extreme to another though, as it’s been made common knowledge that Ilkeston used to have 3 stations, and is the largest town currently without a station.

So what does that mean for the town now? Read the full article here
