An incredible night.

Those final stages when the fans carried the team over the line and the scarves were going. The City Ground has very rarely been better #NFFC
Our rebel gallery #NFFC
Eric Irons was a Jamaican who served in the RAF during WWII. He settled in Nottingham after the war.

Irons fought for racial equality and helped mend relations after the Nottingham race riots in 1958. He later became Britain’s first black magistrate.
Helen Watts was a suffragette who successfully helped earn women the right to vote. She helped create the Women’s Social and Political Union in Nottingham and was arrested numerous times across the country at demonstrations.
Alan Sillitoe - a Nottingham writer perhaps best known for his novel Saturday Night and Sunday Morning (1958) which was turned into a film.

He was incredibly proud of his rebel tendencies which dominated his work.
DH Lawrence of Eastwood was another writer. He battled the establishment and was alienated by some of his peers because of his views. He was particularly strong in his championing of black writers who struggled for opportunities.
No words necessary.
Ned Ludd was the figurehead for a movement known at the Luddites who emerged in 1812. They are unfairly cast as being afraid of advancements in technology but their protests were mainly concerned with the loss of skills and protection of workers rights.
So, what do most of these have to do with #NFFC? Well, largely nothing but we feel these individuals capture the brilliance and spirit of the city and it’s wonderful people.

And we wanted to do something unique, something different to showcase Nottingham. We hope you liked it.
We’ll do a few thank you’s and cover a few other bases in a bit with something on our website but thanks for the lovely comments.

It’s telling what passionate supporters can create without reliance on the club. Last night was fully fan funded and organised and it showed.
