Over £30,000 paid out in 50/50 prizes

May 9, 2018 | 50:50, News

It was another hugely successful season for our match-day 50/50 draw with a grand total of £30,181 paid out in prizes. The highest prize paid out was the £2,000 won by Jade Bennett in the superdraw held at the Portsmouth game on New Years’ Day.

All of this allowed us to meet our targets by funding the Academy to the tune of £23,000 and providing the newly formed Development Squad with £6,000 in start-up costs. We were also able to buy a new minibus for the Academy.

We would like to say a big thank you to everyone who bought a 50/50 ticket this season and to our band of sellers who stand out in all types of weather selling the tickets; and it was a very wet season.

A huge thank you also goes to the team that count the money and prepare the draw ready for a half-time announcement. That is no mean feat and they rarely get to see any of the first half of any home game.
