John Hewitson has thanked the Supporters’ Association after they made a donation of 20 match balls to the Club’s Academy.
Funds had been raised by HUFCSA specifically for the Academy and, rather than simply make a cash donation, it was suggested the money was assigned to buy something that would benefit the players.
And what better than investing it in match balls for our Under-18s side?
“It’s a brilliant gesture and one we really appreciate,” explained Hewitson, the Club's Academy Manager.
“We were delighted to go across to the Corner Flag with Ian McGuckin and a few of the players to accept the donation and show our gratitude for everything they do for us.
“They wanted to put the money raised towards something tangible so it made perfect sense for them to spend it on match balls so we’re very thankful to them for their efforts.”
