Wouldn't it be good to keep the half time draw virtual as well as in the ground on a match day.
Combine the two for a 50/50 draw only.

Could you do some retro match days perhaps? Pick a different game from our past each Saturday? Get the club involved with posting the match report or highlights where available
Great idea

I’d imagine it would be harder to administer the online sales whilst at the match counting the physical sales if you were to combine the 2

Virtual draw for away games, in-ground draw for home games.
And on the 7th day god created football

Good idea, bigmac95.

For home games, an online option could be added for home games with an earlier time for sales ending (Friday midnight? Saturday 10am?) - if it could be manageable by those who are administering the draw.

In think (and this is a purely personal view) this will be the way to go. The home games would be impossible to administrate 'as we went'.

We have been inundated with requests to continue over the summer, which we will, trying to keep the football element and using some of the up and coming anniversaries in the next month. We have been absolutely blown away by the response- thank you all. I must thank Frazer and Rich in particular for administering the system as sales rocketed. And of course, the magic of Russ!

Selling over four thousand raffle tickets is ridiculous. Well done everyone.

Why not keep it going every Saturday in close season If Russ would not mind doing it, I think the club could do with as much cash as we could donate.

We ARE going to keep it running, don't worry.

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND AND ALREADY OVER 500

This weekend, we are all about the play offs in 2008 for our virtual raffle. On our way with the Telford fun bus, in the days where shoes were off and Daz and Dave were the love of our lives.

Over £2000 in the pot just after kick off, so someone is getting a £1000+ prize today.

Amazing work, well done all.
