Forum Tonight

Last updated : 30 January 2002 By Andy Beill

A seperate fans' forum with the manager is expected later in the year. Council representatives Trevor Larson and John Topliss plus Stadium Manager John Cooper should be in attendance tonight along with Pearson.

Doors open for the stadium forum at 7pm, with questioning starting at 7:30pm. Anyone that can't get to Boothferry Park in person can listen to it live on BBC Radio Humberside (95.9FM locally) or live on the internet. Click here once things have kicked off to listen in.

Pearson confirmed: "I'm aware people are saying we've already reached an agreement but that is not the case. However, talks are progressing very well and we hope to announce a deal soon. The deal we are trying to put together would be a massive boost for the entire project."
