With our game called off against North Ferriby the club suffered a financial loss due to no gate revenue, no sponsorship and no bar takings
However the blow was softened thanks to our great fanbase. Firstly the team trained on the pitch with Alex and Andy putting the players through their paces in an open training session. Next up was a penalty shootout between the supporters and the players. As was to be expected the players ‘bossed’ this competition with Louis Briscoe proving just how hard a football can be kicked and Andy Howarth showing off with a Rabona. Paul Hayward turned back the clock by donning the gloves and pulling off a few fine saves.
It was then the turn of the supporters who formed two sides to compete against each other. The orange side was ‘managed’ by Alex Meechan and the black and whites by Andy Fearn. The match was evenly contested with a final score of 5-5. Both managers got onto the score sheet with Alex netting a hat-trick. Penalties decided the competition with the orange team edging home. We should say at this time that the supporters each paid £10 for the thrill of playing on Marston Road’s hallowed turf. a big thank you to you all.
On then to the Social Club for an entertaining quiz organised by quizmaster Phil Bennett. After a re-count on the scores Peter Johnson’s team were declared the winners,
The Directors and staff would like to convey their thanks to all who contributed to a very enjoyable day. In particular a very big thank you to Shaun Reynolds for his fundraising throughout the week, to Phil Bennett for organising the quiz, Alex and Andy, and the entire squad for taking part in the football activities and to everyone else who turned up and either took part, helped out or just turned up.
