Flyde and dandy as barrels keep rolling along

Flyde and dandy as barrels keep rolling along

The Pound for the Ground draw at Saturday’s Fylde game was won by Barry Roberts, an FC fan who travels regularly from Shrewsbury. He kindly donated £50 to the DF (which was added to barrels total). Our team of sellers sold 940 tickets, to what was another great attendance. As per normal this saw £200 to the winner and £740 already banked into the DF. Thanks Barry for your support.

As usual the barrel collection was a veritable feast of delights, which added up to a tremendous total of £551. The day started well with £88 worth of foreign notes which had been exchanged. Then followed a large bag of silver from a regular donator. A cheque for £50 made out to the DF was nestling in a brown envelope. £50 from the PFTG winner, many bags of loose change - and finally all the loose coinage. There was 15 euros and a very healthy assortment of foreign notes and coins, which will be evaluated later.

Once again, it shone through loud and clear - despite the posssibility of another appeal against our new ground in Moston, we are in this together for the long haul and we all believe that one day our team will run out onto a pitch at our very own ground.

Another great day to treasure, on and off the pitch.
