Southampton fans COYR party at Wembley criticised by customers

Daily Echo: Saints fans at Wembley Saints fans at Wembley

ORGANISERS of a giant party for Saints fans at Wembley, which has come under fire from ticket holders, say they only encountered problems because revellers were eager to have a good time.

Held at Silver Spoons just metres away from the stadium, the party for 2,000 fans has been criticised for not giving punters the cheaper food and drink that they paid for.

But organiser Nick Illingsworth, of the Saints Trust, said that the party was a success and only ran into difficulty because many fans were drinking so much beer.

Tickets were sold for the party, which started at 9am on Sunday morning, at £10 each with a special offer at the bar for three pints of beer for £10.

Fans bask in the glory of a Wembley win

But dozens of revellers have complained about the event.

One who wished to remain anonymous said: “Having paid a tenner on the promise of cheaper food and drink, I was surprised to find that the drink (what little drink they actually had available) was actually more expensive than most of the pubs in the area.

“There was no food available at all, although judging by the state of the place, that may not have been a bad thing.”

Illingsworth, right, who runs Come On You Reds! which organised the event and sold tickets on their website, said the party was inspected by police, trading standards and licensing officials who were all happy with what they saw.

“The problem was it was a victim of its own success,” he said.

“People were there from 9.30am and they were drinking more beer than the bar could cope with.

“They even had to go buy more in the form of cans to provide enough beer.”

Fans videos from Wembley

Illingsworth said the food was also provided by specially set up catering vans and a takeaway next door which offered food at cheaper prices than those at Wembley.

“The vast majority of the fans present seemed brimming with the “spirit” of the day and like ourselves concentrated on enjoying the occasion,” he said.

“But, inevitably as at any event, some are bound to have experienced less than their expectation.

“In this case Silver Spoons itself was taken by surprise by the sheer exuberance of Saints supporters.

“They have had so called bigger clubs than Saints in recent years, but none had displayed the capacity to drink and be merry that Saints supporters showed on Sunday.”

Organisers are asking anyone with problems from Sunday to email them on info@coyr.co.uk

Not sure what's worse; fans being ripped off or the fact the Echo shamelessly promoted the party beforehand!!

I don't think Nick is really to blame as he was only the front man for the con men who ran the event.
The main problem was that the bouncers were still letting in fans on the payment of £10 cash (straight into the back pocket) to a sold-out event

What a farce! Sounds like everyone was duped from Mr Illingsworth down - You're telling me that a pub close to Wembley has the audacity to charge £20K - that's £20K of Saints fans money then wonder why they run out of beer because they're selling three pints for a tenner???? Any fool should have been able to work out that they'd need to drink at least 6 pints to benefit from being ripped off to set foot in the place....dear oh dear. Let's hope people don't make the same mistake when we're back there on the 29th May ;-)

I think it is an absolute disgrace Mr Illingsworth can even try and put a positive spin on any aspect of this. I bought a ticket well in advance of the day but was disgusted by th state of the place when we got there. Numpty bouncers "selling" tickets outside the door when the place was already sold out in advance, you couldn't get near the bar! After about 10 minutes trying to actually get any further into the place I decided enough was enough, people were nose to nose and the place was hot as hell. If there had been an accident the chances of evacuating the place any time soon were minimal, it was a disaster waiting to happen.

sorry silly pc, anyway I am horrified that you state that the police, trading standards and the trading standards were happy with this hell hole, have you got the contacts for these organsiations as I would love to speak to them in person as I just simply don't believe what you are saying.

It was a good idea in principle and thanks for tring but I would rather pay the prices inside the stadium and be able to enjoy the atmosphere in safety than ever witness another shambles like this. I want my money back.

All the football events held there have had the same overcrowding problems. They have all featured the "Scam" that the lager has run out and thus get more profit from canned lager instead.

All that illingsworth has stated is complete and utter rubbish.

Illingsworths mantra always seems to be about doing it for fellow fans, nonsense ! this was for capital gain nothing else, he purports to chair an organisation that has no, i repeat NO members, The Saints Trust is gone and so is the trust that any Saints fan should put in Illingsworth

The silverspoons shanigans was a complete rip off, I paid £10 like everyone else on the promise of cheap food and drink, ex players and good atmosphere, I didn't get any and like everyone else got ripped and conned big time. I saw people going in without a ticket and by ten the place had run out of some drinks and to make matters worse after the game up-stairs was completely shut and I wasn't aloud in even though I had a ticket? I wouldn't recommend my worst enemy to go to Silverspoons it was a dump and the staff didn't have a clue what they were doing, I will say I wouldn't step foot in that place even if it was free! It was the biggest con and scam ever.

Have complained directly and asked for refund but after Echo article where Illingworth blames saints supporters, and not crap organisation, I don't hold out much hope.

Truly awful, nothing like it was advertised. Can Nick confirm who the ex players booked for this so called "event" were? What makes it so much worse is him trying to fob off the complaints I was with a party of 30 and not one of us has a good thing to say about it. He must have made money out of this, most of us paid cash I should think so no chance of a refund, how about a donation to a local charity????

Having paid £20 in advance I was surprised to see tickets being sold on the door.
The venue was overcrowded. It took me 38 minutes to get a drink. The DJ was atricious. The TV clips consisted of an intermittent Sky 2 feed, no food, not enough beer and poor bar service ( only 9 bar staff, but they were very slow). Ex -players ( were?)
the carlisle fans were havng a better time with cans on the concourse!.

Contrast with wemberlee £4 for a pint - wait time nothing.

How that venue passed a fire test ?
There must have been another 200 outside the exits lookiing for fresh air.
I can handle a bit of crowding or a busy pub, but that events just made us all look like mugs. No one inthe 20 + supporters group I was with has a good word to say.
Poor venue, poor planning, good location. Not going back - will be looking for a refund.

Last sun it looked like the zoo, local concil estate and asylum all let thier residents out on day release to Silverspoons. shame on you nick, this was hyped up to be something it really wasnt.

What a disgusting whole that place was. If NI had been to visit beforehand and still gave it the thumbs up it is worrying how his new venture can ever be trusted to hold any event.
Sadly for NI he is recognised as the face of COYR and the others will be able to slink away and not face the same aggrovation that NI is likely to get by disgruntled punters. The way it has been handled has inflamed the 'party goers' as they have tried to side step rather than hold their hands up.
I suggest anyone who bought tickets by PayPal or credit card put in complaints and the quantity will alert these people to the problem and quickly withhold any money due.
As for the Echo, you have also been damaged by the promotion of the event and then the publication of the statement without actually questionng the uproar it has caused. Find another spokesman, perhaps Daren Wheeler who seems to be fair minded IMO

The place was dangerous, another Hillsborough in the waiting. The echo should take responsibility as it advertised this in a full page spread and needs to redeem itself by doing the following
* Getting N.I. to apologies publically. His statement 'the majority enjoyed themselves' is incorrect. Fact is fans were in high spirits any way and enjoyed themselves in SPITE of the venue. Had we lost the game I think club 2000 would of taken a hammering from fans venting frustration.
*Give Nick and his cronies no more paper space. He is seen as a laughable Danny Dyer wannabe and his views are not creditable, He couldn't play football and knows little about it.
* Most importantly spread the word so no more fans from any teams suffer the same fate at the hands of these london yobs who put lives at risk by pocketing tenners at the door, The Echo could seriously save lives.

Paid £30 for my brother myself and his mate for tickets into the club. Managed after about half an hour to get 10 tins of Carling between us, which cost us a further £30. Had to go upstairs to drink them as the club was hotter than the centre of the sun. After we finished them we went downstairs to which can only be described as a sewage works. Stunk like the drains were blocked. Floor was soaking wet and the bar was again about 20 people deep all round. Police came in and closed the bar atleast an hour before the game kicked off. All in all I have never been to such a disgusting place in all my life. Basically we paid £60 for 10 tins, which would of cost a fiver in the super market. Nick should be ashamed of himself!!!
