I've not seen it mentioned elsewhere, so I'd like to offer a hearty congratulations to the new stadium announcer, who I reckon did a sterling job on Saturday (even if he didn't play Go Bath City, Go!). He kept us all up to date with everything we needed to know in a strong and clear voice, and even paraphrased Junior's traditional stirring call to arms at kick off. And I was so pleased that he carried on the tradition of thanking the away fans - they were already a bit disappointed that a steward didn't let them take their drum into the ground (I know this is a divisive matter, but do we really have an agreement with the local residents that we don't allow drums in the ground? I've never heard that one before!), so it was nice that a solid bunch of fans were appreciated for their long trip.

One thing I would ask him though is to be very aware that when you turn up the quiet PA in the main stand a little, it reaches ear bursting levels of volume on the Pop Side. Indeed, I know I've mentioned this before, but it was possibly the loudest it's ever been on Saturday, and I'm not normally one to baulk at volume. Maybe have someone over there testing it out and giving you signals when you first turn the PA on, sir?

But aside from that, good job whoever you are! It was a great start to the regular gig, and you'll only grow in confidence as you do it!

Agree about the very high volume on the Pop Side. Like you Roy, my hearing has suffered from too much live music (in my case I blame Pete Townsend and John Entwistle), but it was far too loud. Lots of people were looking up at the loud speakers although I'm not sure what they thought staring at them would achieve!

I spoke to Adam and directed him to this thread. He said he was asked to turn it up as people on the main stand side couldn’t hear. Which is believable as there’s a big discrepancy between the sound on either side, whether it’s more speakers or better quality, I don’t know. The volume controls are amazingly sensitive as well.

Considering I chucked about 100 dos and donts at him I’m relieved to hear he did well. I know he enjoyed it. I might be back for the Concord game to whip you lot back into shape. It felt very weird not being at a home match but something I’ll have to get used to.

At the very least, if it's possible, splitting the controls for the main stand and the Pop Side might be worthwhile, if we've got anyone with the ability to do that at the club. It was almost unsafe levels of volume over there on Saturday.

Glad Adam enjoyed it though - he did a good job!

Sorry, I haven't seen this item until today (Sat 26 Oct).
1. We never allow drums to be brought in, and are very happy for all supporters to yell as loud as possible..
2. I will have a look at the loudspeakers on Monday (28 Oct). In the past, I have installed extra speakers on the popular side, because people said that they couldn't hear! It might be easiest to remove one which is too loud. At the Bath end, there is one area where there are 3 speakers together, so i could try disconnecting one and see if that helps.

Love flares and smoke - it was like being at the San Siro against Torquay (well, almost)
