Staff And Players Donate To Fans Appeal

Pools boss Dave Challinor surprised the North West Corner with a donation of £200 raised by staff and players at Saturday’s game against Ebbsfleet United.

Challinor had seen an appeal on social media from the North West Corner for funds to help them invest in items to improve the atmosphere even further at Victoria Park.

“We’ve bought flags, banners, drums and drum equipment and we want to continue doing so,” read the NWC’s statement on their Twitter account.

“We would kindly appreciate if our fans can help by donating to the link below so that we can take our support to the next level.”

Challinor wanted to do his bit and the coaching staff and players were happy to put their hands in their pockets too – and then after the game he revealed the donation at the end of his post-match interview on Pools TV.

“We’ve had a collection and there’s £200 for the North West Corner because their support is massively appreciated,”

“I would have loved to have given them that on the back of a win – it wasn’t to be but hopefully it goes to a good cause and they will spend it well.”
