I was in the club for a pint several weeks ago and there were two couples in letting their young kids run around the pool room and then the guys started singing songs from the blue side of a sectarian bent too, all went unchallenged.

I drank my pint and left and it's put me off using the club as often as I'd like.

Unfortunately the club itself has to accept Patrons from all walks of life -but come matchday its normally only Saints supporters that are in there to get the bus up to the game - The more that use it (Saints supporters that is) the merrier it will be

Agree Ancient that in financial climate they have to accept all patrons, but as fazman has highlighted there needs to be some common ground and enforcement of rules. WAP has done great stuff in supplementing the funds of the (alleged) Saints club but as long as committee is entrenched with apathy towards the breaches of rules and common sense due to their support of a certain football club and in my opinion this may hinder relations toward the football club (right or wrong is not my call) hopefully this does not impact on the bus and other ventures that you guys have. Again I wish you all success

Although not great at putting point across I hope you can pick up what I mean

Yeah I get yer point ---Hopefully everyone reading this will realise that the "Committee" of the CLUB are not the same as the committee of the WAP Barossa Street Saints ( who have NO representation on the CLUB committee) .

I have been in the club loads of times and never heard a single song sectarian or other wise apart from the organised events such as the 5 bus loads of Celtic fans or the 130 Bristol City fans.

i think you have been a bit unlucky but please dont let it put you off.

Will have a wee word next time I am in, hope to see you soon.

And well done to Tranmeresaint for putting the constitution together.

To be fair, I hadn't seen these folk in the club before or since then. It may just have been because the Scotland game had been on that afternoon.

I've been in to the club a couple of weekends ago and enjoyed my afternoon watching the football and sinking a few pints.

I'll ask Ancient next time I see him as he put himself up for election and got voted in. Saw a list somewhere the new office bearers.

Still awaiting answers on why no buses at end of last season, no one forth coming.

They are doing the accounts.
