I have now had the £150 refund from Crowdfunder for the money I donated to The Fans Of The Future campaign which has now collapsed.

I donated this money from the proceeds of a recent Fishy Buster, so I now have £150 in my bank account which I need to allocate.

I was thinking of adding it to the next Fishy Buster total but there will not be enough time for another game this season after the current one has finished so that will mean me hanging onto the money until next season.

The other thing I thought I would do was just give the £150 away at random. The way I would do this is to randomly choose a number between 1 and 1000 (which I would also let Grimrob know, so that there can be no accusations of a fix) obviously Rob wouldn't be allowed to enter and at the deadline give the money away to whoever got the correct number (or nearest to). I realise some posters probably have more than one login name and I don't want people making new login details just to enter, so I will restrict the entry to 1 per login detail who have over 100 posts to their name.

Alternatively I could do something totally different with this money if anyone has any better suggestions.

Over to you.

I think giving it to a good cause as it was already intended to give it away, so just choose another good cause. 😎

The Icenian Predicition League  CHAMPION 2016/17

As we can't give it to the fans of the future, how about the players of the future.  Youth team ??

The wife was going away for a girly weekend.
I jokingly remarked  'I don't know whether to spend it watching porn or watching football'
'you may as well spend it watching porn' she replied
That's understanding darling what makes you say that? I asked

She said 'Well you already know how to play football'

Fifteen pounds each to ten worthwhile charities of your choice would be my suggestion

Les , there is a headline story in the telwag today about a couple of friends who are struggling with funeral arrangement payments, as their friend had died and they ran into red tape as they didn't know what to do for the best.
This for me would make a great donation?

Everyone has a charity of choice. For what it's worth, I think it should be club related.
