The 12th Man Fund, already popular with other progressive non-league clubs, is an initiative to raise money to increase the team’s playing budget and for fans to make a direct impact on the pitch as well as from the terraces.
Money raised by the 12th Man Fund does not replace the money already allocated by the club for paying players – it is a ring-fenced bucket of funding that can be accessed by the manager for the sole purpose of paying new players – and will never be used for any other means. It is to be used at the sole discretion of the manager, when he finds the player or players he wants to bring into the squad whether that may be this season or next.
Manager Sammy Moore said ‘We recognise how much you supporters already contribute to allow us to put a team out on the pitch that can compete at this level. We will never take that for granted. It is your community, your town, your club. If you have £10, or £20 or £100 to contribute it will all go towards the team that you see playing on the pitch each week. We don’t want to put a minimum or maximum donation out there, we want it to be inclusive for every person in the community. Thank you for your great support’.
All participants that contribute to the fund will be included in a Monthly prize draw with incentives such as Nominate a match day mascot, Boardroom experience, a meal for 2 and lots more.
