I’ve not seen anyone comment on here about this new idea by the club. I made a donation yesterday, but the donations are made through PayPal, and I appreciate that not everyone has a PP account, so, for that reason, it may well put many people off joining this scheme. It’s an idea borrowed from HKR, and may provide some funds for our club.

Had a quick look at it this afternoon and whilst I think it is a good idea in principle, surely it would be better if you could choose a player to adopt ??
For example I would be more inclined to pay £50 to adopt someone such as Toppo or Solomona etc, rather than be allocated a "John Smith" who might have played 2 games for us in 1974 !!
Perhaps the club could list and update the website weekly with which former players have been sponsored and by whom to give it a more personal touch??

All that would happen then is, the 20 "names" people want go for £500 and the 1200 "John Smiths'" go unsold.

This is the right way to do it.

If it helps you, If I get Toppo, Fox or Sololmona, I'll sell him to you!

I think the idea is that more will take part if there isn't a set or minimum donation. If you or others are willing to give £50 for a certain class of player would this be more profitable than relying on 50 fans paying £1??? Probably.
It's just another simple fundraiser for me and I'm happy to get whoever comes out of the hat for my reasonable donation.

Apart from Scott Grix . :wink:

Over £1000 already. Good start.

It’s a bit of fun and will raise a bit money for the club. What I like about it is the kids can put a few pence in from there pocket money and they’ll get a name back and maybe go and research the club’s history a bit. Adults can chuck a bit more in if they want and plenty of people are asking for other ways to put money in to the club currently.

Will chuck a tenner in on payday.

Emailed club and asked if there's another way to pay. Not had a response yet!

:lol: :lol: ...I get both sides of the argument so why not go for a combination of the two.....list the more desirable players at say £100 each, mid-level players at £50 each and then the remainder at whatever people want to pay ??

Or even auction off the most desirable players to the highest bidder ?? :IDEA: :IDEA:
