Thanks to West Auckland Town FC

Thank to West Auckland Town FC

Sending out a huge thank you to all of the players who donated their 'end of season pool' to us at CDDFT Charity.

The player contributions throughout the season saw the club's players raise £3,000 for their bonus pool, made up of monthly subscriptions and players fines.

Fines were given out to players for various things including being late, missing club attire, dirty boots and mobile phone use in the dressing room.

Usually this money is spent on an end of season celebration, however, this year the team thought it would be better served helping our local hospitals - so a huge thank you to all the team for their most generous donation of £3000.00 which will help make such a difference to both patients and staff.

Dave Bussey, the club's assistant secretary, said: "Football and nights out are the last thing on the players' minds at the moment, we are all grateful to what the NHS are doing in these unprecedented times."

Thank you everyone  West Auckland Town FC
