What is it and what's the connection with Lancashire Cricket Club?
The FC United Weekly Prize Draw in partnership with the Lancashire Cricket Foundation is a win-win for FC United and the Lancashire Cricket Foundation, and the money raised from the lottery goes to Club Funds and in excess of £56,000 has been raised so far. This has gone a long way in helping us to build and improve things in and around Broadhurst Park so we can have better facilities for our match going supporters plus we can also play a greater part in the local community all year round.
How can you sign up?
FC Fan Martin Mercer signed up and here's his story
"Some weeks ago, I received a telephone call from my good friend [another] Martin - a fellow supporter and founder member of F.C. United - and our conversation went something like…. “Have you seen what’s appeared on the Club website?” My immediate thoughts were that we may have signed a new player, perhaps another loan signing? His response was that I should take a look for myself and, sure enough, I was delighted to find I had been successful in the Lancashire County Cricket Club Lottery weekly prize draw!!
Having subscribed to the L.C.C.C. lottery in September 2018, after being ‘signed-up’ by a fellow F.C./L.C.C.C. volunteer at the time, it was a lovely surprise to discover that I had won the first prize of £1000! As a Lancastrian and keen follower of the county cricket club alongside my passion for F.C. United, supporting this lottery is a great way of mutually benefitting these organisations - and all for as little as £1.00 per week!
My best wishes and thanks to our manager, Neil Reynolds, and all the players, club staff and our inspiring volunteers for the rest of the season – onwards and upwards!
