Strong defending by Morag
Robbie Savage Fan Club indignant over foul treatment
University of Leicester employee Morag Clarke, a keen Leicester City supporter and founder of the Robbie Savage Fan Club, refused to sit on the sidelines recently when Robbie Savage risked a fine following a claim that he used the referee's toilet before the Leicester City v Aston Villa match.
She decided to move on the defensive. She produced a poster for circulation claiming that the matter had been "blown out of proportion". Posters were displayed in various locations and distributed at a recent City game.
"He is being treated unfairly", says Morag. She feels that the Club needs players like Robbie to ensure a return to the Premier League at the first attempt. "This is one way of driving him away", she said.
Morag formed the Robbie Savage Fan Club in April 2001 and its members now number over 260. Each fan receives a quarterly newsletter. Prizes for the newsletter's competition are donated by Robbie - one prize being a meal out with him. Also sent out to every member is a birthday card and a christmas card signed by the man himself.
Postscript: In May 2002, Robbie Savage was offered and accepted a transfer to Birmingham City Football Club.
