Catering on Training Days

Post  Alan on Wed Feb 18, 2009 7:41 am

Do you mean to buy or for free?

I guess it depends upon how many people attendng or watching training are likely to buy some food, as to whether or not it's worth the caterers setting up for training sessions.

During matches there's always food available for players (foc - although home players should have paid match fees) and for spectators to buy.

It sounds strange that the caterers didn't put something on for you to buy - e.g. the meal that had been prepared for the players, a sandwich, some chips etc. It also seems like a lost opportunity to bring in some revenue to the Club.

Having investigated this a bit further, I understand that the Club arranged food for the all the players and the away parents.

Providing food for free to away parents isn't something we usually do, and as you know, it isn't something that we've experienced ourselves when we've been away. But I'm sure you'd agree it was a nice touch for the visiting parents considering how far they had travelled to enable their lads to play us.

Catering seems to be a bit of a problem area as the Club never knows how many people will stay to watch a match and so it is difficult to make suitable arrangements without running the risk of having lots of food left over.

Also, Sunday's game was a bit of a rush to organise as we only got the call on Friday from Bromsgrove.

But we are sorry if anyone felt inconvenienced.

We'll get it sorted before the next home game and will make sure this doesn't happen again.

But do you think there should be food available on Sundays that are training days? If so, how many parents would want to buy something to eat and what sort of things would they want to buy?

Cheers

catering for supporters

Post  doug finney on Thu Feb 19, 2009 7:18 am

Catering for spectators is a difficult area to address at the moment, as catering generally is provided by a franchised caterer, who does not have a presence at the club on training days. When matches are arranged, the caterer has provided food for players( Free) and spectators ( to purchase). Sunday's U14s game friendly against Bromsgrove was arranged at the last minute and so it was not possible to get the caterers in at such short notice. Food for the players was provided by club members but it was not possible to cater for spectators this time.
In the past I personally have provided for hot drinks on training nights, but we need some volunteers to take this job on if it is to be any more than a 'help yourself and honesty box service'.
If parents want a food service on a normal training night, then this would have to be charged and due to the low demand levels, would be expensive, if the caterer has to provide staff on the off-chance of some demand.
I agree that we must look into providing food on match days and this is usually the case but consider that the small number of spectators attending coaching sessions would not prove cost effective.
