Mmmmm... this is getting very annoying. Times are hard and folk are doing their best. It's great that ordinary supporters are chipping in. But what about our friendly corporate supporters? Our 'caring, sharing' players could have a whip-round and raise that money in minutes. Their wages, even at our level, are a whole world away from the rest of us. Same goes for our 'legends'. If all the Beat's ex-teammates had stuck their hands in their back pockets, this money could have been raised months ago.
