Since we launched our 50/50 draw in order to help our club, we have received mixed comments.
We have listened to all the posts and just wanted to answer some of the comments.
Both the Trust, other fans groups and individual fans have stepped up to the plate and supported deserving causes during the COVID-19 pandemic and have done a terrific job in the process which we commend.
But our question is this....What is the glue that binds us all together as a bigger group? Walsall Football Club.
We at the Trust believe that the Chairman Leigh Pomlett has the support of every true Saddlers fan and we believe he, along with the Directors and staff are doing their very best for our club.
This crisis could see the end of many lower division clubs and we should all be doing our best to help our club.
We will come out the other side in better shape than many clubs but the Trust have launched the 50/50 draw to give them a small helping hand in this difficult time.
We have seen comments about not having a go on the draw whilst the rent is still being paid. The rent issue is sadly out of our control however we can all help in other ways.
This draw gives a chance for the winner to make a few quid for themselves and help our club out in the process.
We have seen fans of Queen Of The South give out nearly £5000 prize in two draws so far. Accrington Stanley have over £1000 in prize money in their draw - both have smaller fan bases to ours.
Its only £1 a go and if every Walsall fan had just one ticket it would raise around £2,000 for the club and make one Saddlers fan £2,000 richer.
Lets help Leigh and our club in these unprecedented times and come out the other side in the best shape possible ready for a promotion push.
