Puts everything into perspective really. As fans your mood can change whether the team win, lose or draw. But one thing which is taken as given, is that you return home afterwards and try again next game. Tragically in this case two lads left to play football and didn't make it back. Would be a nice touch to perhaps see some bucket collections at the Bank holiday games, with proceeds donated to charities selected by the players families. Thoughts of the whole football community are with them at this time.
We, as a Club, decided to have a bucket collection to go to Worthing United along with the minute's silence and £496.20 was raised.
With the crowd being under a thousand I think that's a brilliant amount.
That's quite fabulous. There's been such solidarity across the Non League community. And credit to Brighton & Hove Albion, who have sold almost 1000 tickets for The FA Vase match between United and East Preston on Sunday. A fitting tribute.
