It's basic role was to arrange travel to away matches for fans and had official links with the club to this end (and had an additional perk to print the seasons fixtures which believe it or not was illegal for anybody else to do so without paying a fee!).
The club always recognised the BWSA to be its official fan club, always sent players and club officials to its meetings and kept the wanna be ST, wisely, at more than arms length until now.
Unfortunately it looks as those who ran the BWSA (many of whom were elderly) have had to pack it in since Covid struck - certainly both their Twitter and Facebook accounts have not been active since March of last year.
I see today that the ST have signed them up to be one of a number of random affiliates, they are blowing their trumpet about which includes a group of four or five youths in Argentina and a pub in Bennidorm - would you believe!
I do hope all those of the BWSA are all safe and well sheltered from Covid and I'd like to thank them for all they've done for the club and its fans over the years.
Everytime I hear the words 'Werther's Original' or 'Doom Bar' I will think fondly of them!
