An awesome day for the 50/50 draw today.

There were 2 prizes today and we sold an amazing amount of tickets.

So the first prize was for a cash prize of £860!

The winning ticket was number16445.

We had an additional prize kindly donated by Virgin Trains of 4 first class train tickets.

The winning ticket was number 15784.

Thank you everyone for purchasing tickets

Well done to those stalwarts who keep selling and buying those tickets. It is a great stream of revenue into the club and to be fair, some blooming good odds on winning a substantial amount. Keep it up!

Yep outstanding participation on this every home game.

It's basically a £10k revenue stream into the club which I would be surprised if it got anywhere near that when we were a football league club.

I wonder what sort of figures we would get if we ever got crowds up to 2,000/2,500 and those extra fans bought into the fan run club ethos?

The 50/50 is really impressive :thumbup: and it's great to see it growing so well.

We got ten tickets yesterday - as there might a chance of winning, but no matter if you don't as it always gives the club financial boost.

The secondary prizes are a good idea too and should be repeated if possible - I'm sure ticket sales increased yesterday because of these extras.
Mr Singh said this " I'm not expecting to get back any of the money I've already put in, I'm prepared to write it off for the future of the club. I'm not hanging in to make any kind of financial gain in the short or long term - if someone was prepared to come in and take the club off my hands, I'd be more than willing to discuss it"
