    Club initiative. This could help any local groups, clubs or organisations like Residents associations, social clubs or teams. Or you could joist sign up, yourself.

    As times get harder and we look to ways to generate funds, if you are a club, association or organisation, why not consider joining The Boost The Boro Lottery.
    Earning 50% commission, for your cause, you also have the chance of winning £500, £100 or £50 each month.

    **Example - getting just 6 people on board at £5 per month for each member, you would get £180 per year back just for setting this up and sitting back!

    As an individual agent you can sign your own members up and gain 30% commission.
    Check the link for details!

    There are some amazing people out there, both in our town and much further afield. We set a target of £50k, to include £25k from donations etc and £25k from a government grant, to keep the club alive. The target has been surpassed with fans donations, virtual match tickets etc and the main income from share purchases to support the club.
    With a grant to come in that should rise to around £75k but the fight has to go on. Turning the club into a debt free, community based successful business has to remain the aim and there are many ways the club and community can interact.
    The cub being open for blood banks and some NHS training is a bonus to support the community and looking forward, there are companies and NHS groups that want to use the facilities to celebrate coming out of this whole episode. The Friendship Scheme stays in place (aka the lottery) where local organisations (residents associations/sports clubs/PTA's etc) can gain 50% commission from joining up with the chance to win a cash prize each month. Coming out of this, I am sure some groups will want to team up. Why not? Local businesses may want to get involved through partnerships and sponsorship to regenerate interest through other ideas that we announce in future.
    Anyway - latest release!

    Thank god he isn't the 'BIG NAME' that someone I work with was saying he hoped we'd get! he obviously doesn't remember the Steve Bull farrago! :( He's much more akin to the young enthusiastic, experienced at Rangers Level,I advocated! And as a North West man, much closer to the sort of players we are going to need to bring in, whenever that may be, and at the moment who knows when that will be! I am very pleased with this appointment, but the proof of the pudding will be ..., of course! Best of luck Jody,, and a good choice imho for your deputy. He often loked like the captain when on the pitch last season.

    :slayer:Up the Boro' ! :football::bravo:

    A great interview as an introduction to the new gaffer. Positive, very honest and no bull or false promises. You have to aim high but you also have to acknowledge things won't be easy

    We lost an important member of our clan, this week. Sadly, Phil Bennett lost his battle with cancer on Monday.
    I'm posting that, firstly out of respect but also because many on here may know Phil from visits to games, involvement with the club, or common interests as he was also a regular in the local darts league and a train and travel enthusiast.

    MASSIVE presence at the club in all the time I have been a regular attender at Marston Road. Always guaranteed to proffer an opinion at the quality of the match officials performance, wielding a whistle himself! Founding member of STRiPES, (Rangers supporters club, responsible for raising thousands for the club; latterly very active maintaining the pitch, despite being unwell. He will be sadly missed. RIP Mr Bennett!
    For all you did , memories of your support for the club will be a lasting memorial. :bravo:

    My son has bought a season ticket for the Rangers next season on the basis that access to Old Trafford will be restricted and he won’t get to many United games.

    He collected his prized purchase yesterday and they gave him this with his ticket.

    Strange looking codpiece isn’t it? :)
