BHAlba: Scottish Seagulls
The Albas were set up some years ago by the two Tony's and Graham. Many of us lived in Scotland for many years unaware of The Albas existence - until that chance meeting at Carlisle Station.
We now have about 50 members scattered throughout Scotland. Apart from a common interest in the Albion, many of us also follow Scottish teams. So the person next to you at Tynecastle or Love Street might be a fellow Alba.
Chris acts as club treasurers, Tony P as membership secretary. However, the club runs pretty informally. So if anyone ever wants to volunteer to organise anything, don't be shy.
Most communication is by email, and the Yahoo E-Group. Tony P tries to maintain an up-to-date address list, so contact him if you have any problems..
The Albas usually sponsor a player - although this does seem to be the kiss of death to the unfortunate recipient. There is usually a sponsors dinner. We also get to keep and raffle a signed shirt at the end of the season.
We travel to most away games in the Norf - anywhere from Crewe to Hull . We usually travel by train or car, but have also hired mini-buses, and flown. Arrangements are made through the e-group, but we try to keep the web-site updated with the latest plans.
Occasionally, we make a block booking for match tickets. If you want to be included, please make sure you have your Away Membership Scheme details available.
