MANAGER Alan Dowson goes into the new season with an improved playing budget – one which he hopes can help the Beavers match or improve on last year’s fine performance.
But he also knows that, at crucial times of the season, a few extra pounds in the coffers can secure an outstanding player who has suddenly become available. Or maybe it can provide preferential medical treatment to get an injured key player back on the field sooner.
Dowse is therefore leading the way on our Boost the Budget initiative and has already secured a number of pledges from firms and individual supporters.
Beavers fans attending Saturday’s friendly with Aldershot will be handed one of these leaflets, specially designed for us by a supporter, Neil Earp.
As it explains, it’s not just a straight donation. There will be a quarterly prize draw for those taking part. Even £5 a month can make a difference – and we’ll try to have Dowse thank you personally!
