‘Pie­gate’ brings a tasty re­sult for Town fans

“It is a very emo­tive sub­ject,” said Phil.

“Fans are in­ter­ested in the at­mos­phere – and in eat­ing pies – so I took it on as a mis­sion.”

Phil says the pies are now “not far off” from where fans want them to be.

“Jones Pies has been fan­tas­tic and re­ally up to the chal­lenge. They want to make sure ev­ery cus­tomer is happy. Their steak and ale pie has had some fan­tas­tic feed­back.”

Phil, who lives in Li­versedge and watches Town with sons Joe, 17, and Jamie, 13, said the pie ex­pe­ri­ence at the John Smith’s Sta­dium was now up there with the best.

“If the sta­dium or the club gets recog­ni­tion for its pies or its cater­ing I will know that I have done my bit.”

A spokesman for Jones Pies con­firmed that the pies sold at the sta­dium were the same as those sold else­where – which some fans had ques­tioned. Fol­low­ing com­ments from Town fans, Jones said the glaze on pies had been re­duced and the bak­ing time within the fac­tory al­tered. The amount of meat in the meat and potato was in­creased and Ku­dos had made changes to the way pies were ro­tated be­fore be­ing served. The spokesman added: “It has been re­ally pos­i­tive to have some­one help­ing us from the sup­port­ers’ side. “Foot­ball sup­port­ers are re­ally pas­sion­ate and we can’t please all the peo­ple all the time as pies are a sub­jec­tive taste. We are lis­ten­ing and are con­tin­u­ing to im­prove.”
