FANTASTIC FANS RAISE OVER £1500 ON ‘JUST GIVING’ PAGE
Yesterday’s screening of the 2010 FA Vase Final against Wroxham on YouTube: https://youtu.be/eOMZcAyxo-8 proved very popular and we would like to thank Darren Gibson for organising this viewing which clearly brought much needed cheer at a difficult time for so many people. We are already looking into the possibility of screening more games from the club archives.
We are delighted to announce that thanks to the superb generosity of our fans, a total of £1500 has now been donated to the club through the ‘Just Giving’ page which has been set up as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, for fans wishing to make donations or pre-pay season tickets for 2020/21. Some have kindly offered to contribute what they would have paid in gate admissions for the matches that have been called off . The Board of Directors wish to offer their sincere thanks to all those who have contributed to this appeal for support at a time of great difficulty for so many people.
Further donations can be made via @AntoniaBrindle #justgiving : https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/whitleybayfc
All donations are most gratefully received and will help the Club during this period when we are all experiencing unprecedented difficulty.
*On this day 3rd April 2010 – 10 years ago today saw one of the most dramatic games ever staged at Hillheads Park. Whitley took on unbeaten Midland League leaders Barwell in the FA Vase semi final 2nd leg with the sides level after an equally dramatic 3-3 draw in Leicestershire the previous week. Barwell scored inside the first 30 seconds but goals from Adam Johnston and Richard Hodgson put Whitley 2-1 ahead before the quarter hour. A second half penalty brought the visitors back level but a packed Hillheads erupted when into stoppage time Paul Robinson headed home the winner to send Whitley back to Wembley. Relive the game through the full news story and match report below together with interviews and photos including post match celebrations.
