Pledges for youth development update after Alfreton away
The total pledged to support youth development at Chorley FC now stands at £1088 following a run of three matches without a victory. The Stockport game brought in a mere £7, ask thanks to all three subs being used (£2 from Sheila Brennan) and a bumper crowd (£5 from Tony Gilgun).
The following Monday’s draw at Curzon Ashton was somewhat more productive, 100mg bringing in £24, mostly thanks to the single goal scored. That it was a penalty meant Julien Robb became the first pledger this season to reach £100 with his donation of £5 per penalty scored now totalling £20. Whilst impressive, this is still £10 shy of the total he has pledged for missed penalties at £10 per go. The rest has come from a very generous £5 per clean sheet, which has paid out nine times this season.
Not too far behind Julien are Dennis Payne on £85, Mark Rees on £82 and Graham Watkinson on £80, followed by a host of others on around £50.
The Alfreton game was something of a nightmare for the club given the injuries suffered followed by the late surrender of two points, but at least it raised the most for the pledges of these three matches. £36 made it the second most lucrative draw of the season, just 50p behind the 2-2 at Altrincham courtesy of Marcus Carver’s goal in that match wearing the number 9 shirt (50p from Neil Hailwood).
As we have now passed the £1000 mark we’ll naturally be handing the money straight over to the football club. So there will be a cheque presentation at the Nuneaton match this Saturday. That’s a great opportunity for anyone who hasn’t yet joined to get involved and help us raise £3000 for youth development. After all, with the current injury situation, we are going to need our youth setup more than ever.
Just pick up a form at the Trust table outside the Social Club before the match, tweet @cfcst or email firstname.lastname@example.org with your pledge.
And don’t forget, one pledger will win a season ticket for next season.
