Blues 4 All attended the Norwich City game with members from the Guru Gobind Singh Gurdwara and Community Centre in Balsall Heath.
It was a rewarding afternoon spent with the Gurdwara members and great to be joined by the Blues Collective.
Our day started at the Temple in Mary Street where we were able to meet some of the congregation. Our members gained an insight into Gurdwara life, the historic importance to the area and its role in serving the local community.
The Blues Collective were kind enough to arrange a pre-match welcome party at the ground which included a meet and greet with former Blues defender Martin Taylor and members from the Blues Collective and Tilton Alliance. What a way to welcome you to the Blues family!
We all enjoyed watching the superb 3-0 win which made the occasion extra special.
“It was good to hear such positive feedback. This visit has generated a lot of interest inside our Temple and I’m looking forward to seeing more of our members attend future matches this season” said Sunny Singh (Blues 4 All and Gurdwara member).
This was the first ever football match Gurnam Singh (Kings Heath) has been to and was amazed by the whole experience. “Everyone at the ground was so welcoming and friendly. This one afternoon completely dispelled the negative views I previously had about football supporters” added Singh.
Blues 4 All and the Blues Collective would like to thank the members of the Mary Street Temple for their hospitality and our very own Brian for the pictures (Thumbs Footage).
