McCod Army invade Yorkshire...English and Scottish armies were re-united yesterday in support of Fleetwood Town.
The Edinburgh based, McCod Army crossed the border yesterday morning and headed south to Doncaster to team up again with their English counterparts, the Cod Army.
On what was a lovely warm and sunny spring afternoon, the McCod Army added vocal encouragement to the team in yellow shirts.
Spokesman for the Scots, Archie Shearsby, commented after the 0-0 draw at the Keepmoat Stadium “Sixteen of us travelled down today to take in the game. The weather was fantastic and meeting up with the Cod Army before the match was great. Unfortunately, we arrived a little late due to the train being delayed and we couldn’t spend as much time with the Fleetwood guys as we would have liked. Overall though, it has been a fantastic day.”
The Club’s Chief Executive, Steve Curwood, declared:“It's fantastic that we now have support from many corners of the UK. Seeing the McCod Army travel in numbers to Doncaster was another example of how treating everyone who visits Highbury Stadium as valuable is so important in growing our appeal. The Club has a great relationship with 'McCods' and it was fantastic to see them at Doncaster today. We look forward to welcoming them back to Highbury and hopefully with numbers swelling with every trip. ”
While the Cod Army headed back to Lancashire after the game, the Scottish lads stayed on in south Yorkshire to partake in a few alcoholic refreshments in the sunshine. Fleetwood Town would like to thank the McCod Army for travelling south to support the team. We very much look forward to seeing you all again next season at Highbury Stadium. Slainte!
