PerfICT provides the concise report from Saturday's game at Elgin The game kicked off in beautiful sunshine, with ICT facing into a low, irritating sun. Caley Thistle started brightly, with a spell of reasonable pressure culminating in a decent strike from Tansey from the edge of the area which was well parried by the keeper. Elgin responded with some pressure of their own, which was ultimately rewarded with a goal. Vigurs picked up the ball in the deep, but dithered and got dispossessed. In trying to win it back, he made a clumsy challenge, resulting in a free kick on the edge of the box, right of centre. Nicholson hit the free kick low at the right end of the wall. From where I was standing, it went under the last man in the wall and OFW failed to keep it out, despite getting his hand to it. Caley Thistle responded almost immediately, with Doumbouya meeting a great cross to power into the net, but the goal was disallowed, presumably for a push. Undeterred, ICT continued to press and Cole burst into the box down the left, cut in and placed a beauty in the right corner to equalise. Further chances came ICT's way late in the half, with Doumbouya, Cole and Warren all going close. HT 1-1. The second half was altogether more comfortable for Caley Thistle, with long spells of possession, with Elgin restricted to hitting on the break. Cole was bossing things with pace and tricks aplenty - Elgin had no answer to him. Doumbouya spurned several good headed chances, one well saved, one off the bar and one glaring miss. Vigurs nearly atoned for his mistake, with a great free kick off the bar. Finally, Doumbouya connected with a great cross from Doran (I think) and squeezed it into the net, possibly courtesy of a deflection. While ICT continued to dominate possession after the goal, Elgin looked increasingly dangerous on the break. Anier came on for his debut, with the inneffectual Boden making way. Anier controlled a tricky ball well and hit a good effort straight at the keeper from the edge of the area. In the dying minutes, Elgin created several decent chances, but Warren in particular excelled in blocking close-range shots during the last minute stramash! FT: 1-2!

FANS CHARTER : HAVE YOUR SAY!!! How can a match day experience improve? Have your say through this online survey – which is independent of the Scottish FA, SPL and SFL - and contribute to creating a Fans’ Charter which will help make your football entertainment even more enjoyable. James Proctor, who has worked with fans’ organisations for ten years, is the project manager for the Fans’ Charter. He has, in the last three months, been speaking with individual supporters and has contacted supporter groups to find out their views on going to watch football. “This led to ten meetings across Scotland where I listened to the good and bad points of going to the game from supporters of 18 different clubs,” James explained. The discussions produced five areas which a charter should seek to address. 1. Participation – atmosphere, singing and chanting are all created by fans. A charter should recognise that fans are an important part of the match. 2. Fan Relations – the relationships between clubs and fans. Good communications between the two should be recognised as contributing to a good match day experience. 3. Fan Behaviour – Abuse and equality issues such as racism, bigotry and offensive comments should be addressed in the charter with a view to creating a more positive and inclusive environment. 4. Safety Authorities – Stewarding and policing are areas which contribute to a good or bad experience of the game and also have implications for safety. These rights and responsibilities should be balanced in the charter. 5. Facilities – Seating and standing choice were the main issues here, specifically how they affect the enjoyment and safety of supporters at the game. “The objective of a Fans’ Charter is to take a step towards addressing some of the reasons why fans don’t come back or why they find attending matches far from a hassle-free experience,” James added. “This survey offers fans their say on what issues will be included in the charter. “It’s not simply about the outcome. Listening to fans opinions is an important part of this journey into understanding what fans think, why they feel the way they do and what they want in the future. “I would ask all fans to fill in this survey to help improve the match day experience.” Some of you may recall my looking for ICT fans to participate in the initial discussion on the above not that long ago. This survey is the outcome of those initial discussions and is designed to take the process to the next stage by seeking a wider input. The link to the survey is - https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/7J8L6XG - and we need as many people as possible to complete it....it will only take a few minutes to do. We need to get as many football fans in Scotland as possible to input to this via the survey, so please help by sharing the link on your facebook pages, twitter etc and encouraging others to also take part. The twitter hashtag is #fanscharter. Please feel free to use this thread to discuss the Fans Charter. I will do my best to provide/get answers to any questions that arise. P.S. James Proctor referenced above is not to be confused by the CTO Forum user of that name....not the same person.
