Could you help Danny Lye’s promotion push?

Danny Lye has been building us a very strong squad for the new promotion campaign. Added to the exciting squad of last season are 4 quality signings in the shape of Rory Hill, Stuart West, Tom Michealson and Brett Ince. Also you will be aware a certain Darren Marsden has been turning out for the Nuts & Bolts in our pre-season games, with a good chance of Marso signing back up with United.

As you’ll know, a squad full of talent like we have here at A.U.F.C doesn’t come cheap, although worth every penny, especially if we have the exciting cup runs we had last season and finally grab that top spot come April next year!

Some of our supporters have expressed an interest in forming a fundraising group solely to raise money to help Danny Lye with his playing budget.

It’s been agreed by the club officials that any money raised will be kept in a separate account, independent from the club and only used for players wages/expenses.

Mr Ernie Warren has already started up a new 100 club to raise funds, You can find  Ernie just inside the turnstiles at any home game, he’ll give anyone interested a membership form.

On Thursday 21st July, Sharon Dalton has arranged a meeting at 7pm at Sandyacres. The idea of the meeting is to bring supporters together, for anyone with ideas for fundraising to share them, form a committee and discuss any suggestions supporters believe would, or wouldn’t be good for raising money and awareness for our great football club.

Come along, don’t be shy, we’re sure many of our loyal supporters have some wonderful ideas for fun ways of raising money and helping Danny.

Which ever role you would like to play, how ever big or small, be it on the committee, helping out on fundraising days or just to give us your great ideas, your time and effort would as always be greatly appreciated.

As an added bonus, the bar will be open and the squad will be there training.

Thank you for your support.
