Chairboys supporters have achieved the target of raising £75,000 for the playing budget through the 500 Club initiative.
A huge thank you to all fans who’ve supported the 500 Club as we hit the £75,000 target on Saturday 25th March. This huge contribution to the playing budget has allowed Gareth to strengthen the squad in January and help provide a platform to enable us to aim for the play offs. An amazing 439 fans have joined the 500 Club and made donations to the playing budget.
Launched in September, the 500 Club invited fans to commit at least £150 – either as a one-off payment or in monthly instalments – to be spent on new signings and/or players’ contracts, with Scott Kashket (right) and Dominic Gape amongst those whose deals at Adams Park were part-funded by the scheme.
Contributors have been rewarded along the way by a series of prize draws, and each fan has received a signed squad photo as a thank you for their show of support.
The latest prize winner is Phil Holman, who has been selected as the 500 Club’s representative at the player kit sponsors’ dinner next week, with the 500 Club sponsoring Kashket’s away shirt.
All 500 Club members have been invited to a private event with the players in the Caledonian Suite at Adams Park after the match against Mansfield Town on Friday 14th April, which includes a meal, raffle, speeches and the presentation of the 500 Club Player of the Year, voted for by contributors.
Any members who have not yet confirmed their attendance should do so by contacting Nigel Kingston at firstname.lastname@example.org or 01494 677160. When replying, please state your nomination for your 500 Club Player of the Year.
