  1. I hope they put it to good use in the local community

  2. Amazing how many points we received for positive play; must all have been earnt in the first four months!

  3. All season we have been moaning about the break down of are academy so for me it’s a no brainier put the money into the clubs academy,
    That also helps the local community and will benefit the supporters in the end
