Sending out a huge thank you to all of the players who donated
their 'end of season pool' to us at CDDFT Charity.
The player contributions throughout the season saw the club's
players raise £3,000 for their bonus pool, made up of monthly
subscriptions and players fines.
Fines were given out to players for various things including
being late, missing club attire, dirty boots and mobile phone use
in the dressing room.
Usually this money is spent on an end of season celebration,
however, this year the team thought it would be better served
helping our local hospitals - so a huge thank you to all the team
for their most generous donation of £3000.00 which will help make
such a difference to both patients and staff.
Dave Bussey, the club's assistant secretary, said: "Football and
nights out are the last thing on the players' minds at the moment,
we are all grateful to what the NHS are doing in these
Thank you everyone
