A Message from the Chairman - David Durbin

As we are now at the business end of the season it is good to still see so much positivity around at the moment. Along with the additional support coming to the Club from LS28 and the Fax Roadshows, your Trust continues to raise the much-needed funds to support the Reserve Squad. We have already handed over £10k to the Club and thanks to your generosity are well on the way to our third donation.

The Squad numbers and match sponsorships are all sold out and we continue to work towards organising supporters events for the rest of the season. Where possible, we will be taking the events to the local amateur clubs to support them and the Club Foundation.

Your membership is still only £12 per year for which you will receive a monthly newsletter, early notification of events and be entered into a monthly draw to win prizes of greater value than your membership. The meal deal at £10 gets you the free parking and meal at a home game as well as the pre and post-match hospitality.

The Reserves fixture list has been once again chaotic this season as more Clubs have pulled out but we still have some home games to be played at the Shay we hope more of you will be coming down to support them. The list of fixtures are on the Club website and available from your Trust. These can, however, be subject to last-minute alterations so please look at our social media and the Club website.

I would like to take this opportunity to say a massive THANK YOU to you all for your support so far as without it we would not have had a Reserves Squad. If you have any thoughts, ideas or wish to get involved please do not hesitate to contact us, the details are at the bottom of this page.

A Message from the Treasurer - Maureen Booth

The Trust was proud to continue its sponsorship of the Reserve Squad and would like to thank all our fans for their support and generosity. We thank all who have sponsored the Team, and also 3 of the home games. We were also able to sell shirts from previous seasons, (raiding Hilda’s cupboard!) plus auctioning a shirt signed by the 1987 Cup Winning Team, all raising a substantial amount. We have been able to increase our number of Raffles this year and we thank the Club for allowing us to do this.

Once again we are indebted to Peter McNamara for his on-going support of our Quiz Nights and the Fun Day at the Ivy House, and likewise to Neil Arber for his continuing contributions from his Away Coach Travel and Club 1873. Neil has also paid for a part of the away travel for the Reserves directly from this income. Thanks also to Stephen Thomas for continuing his Fantasy RL, all who helped on the Market Stall, and Donations given by supporters. Others to thank include Hilda’s Every Penny Counts and Sue’s Meal Deal.

Not to be forgotten are our loyal fans, who regularly chip into our Blue Buckets on match days and contribute in many other ways, including monthly Membership payments of varying amounts.

We’re supporting our Reserves in 2018 – we wish them and the first team good luck and every success in the coming season.
