Wolves For Willenhall

Wolves For Willenhall

Back Of The Net Promotions is holding a fund-raising football match for Willenhall Town FC, that will give 2 sets of Wolves fans a unique opportunity.

And they need your help.

They have organised a football match to show non-league football still means something in the area.

BOTN are looking for 2 squads of 18 players to play in a rolling subs match, with all profits from the event going to Willenhall Town FC. The game will be played at Willenhall's ground Noose Lane on Friday March 17 at 19:45.

Everyone is guaranteed match time, and will even get to keep their shirt with name printed, and receive a medal.

It costs £5 to register and then £20 on the night per player for what is a unique opportunity,and uptake has been swift. There are currently only 9 places left.

There will be a raffle at the ground for a signed Wolves shirt, and signed football donated by the club, who have given the event their full support.

The event is sponsored by Stationery Express in the Wulfrun Centre.

Non League football is the first rung of the ladder for many players and needs all the support it can get. As Stuart Heathcote of BOTN says :

'People pay £25 to support a rich club with a fantastic stadium every other week so for the same price they get to support a local club that seriously needs a cash injection. A lot of the area's young players need teams like Willenhall to get on the ladder. Currently they have a young striker, Dean Perrow, who is being watched by Walsall and they have also signed ex Wolves youth player, Paul Bonar.

If a person plays 90 minutes or 10 minutes they have done their bit. They get a couple of reminders from the night, they have a laugh playing the game and then a laugh in the bar afterwards. Sometimes you have to look beyond how much it is costing you to where that money goes.'

If you can spare the time, want the chance to know what its like to play at a proper ground, or just fancy blowing the cobwebs away one last time give BOTN a shout, and help a very good cause in the process.
