Welcome to The Shed! This is the home of the We’re In The Shed supporters group for Pontefract Collieries FC. We are a group of fans who support Ponte Colls and enjoy the banter and fun of non-league football.
We’ve only been following the Colls since the start of the 2017/18 season, so are quite new to the scene, but we bring knowledge and experience from history with other sporting teams and other sports, as well as from the business world and tech world.
Our founding members were a group of runners who run together as part of Pontefract Athletics Club. As part of our support for local sporting teams, we regularly come to watch the Colls, and enjoy having a drink or three whilst supporting from The Shed.
The Shed is the end of the ground that has a roof for 2/3rds of the length of that end. The Anti-Shed is the other end, where there is no roof. We very rarely go down that end of the ground, but sometimes do if the team need extra support attacking that end.
We are a friendly group who want to support the team peacefully with humour. We are a very supportive group and are vocal in our support for the team and coaching staff. We like to share a laugh with players – both home and away, as well as with the referee and linespersons – sometimes they even join in too!
On this site, you will find links to our Twitter page, our Facebook page and our Instagram page. You will also see the fixtures and results listed. There may be more features that crop up here in future, so keep popping back to see what else The Shed has in store for you.
