Notts County fans £4,000 to cover unpaid wages at club

Notts County fans have rallied around their club by raising more than £4,000 to cover unpaid wages for club staff.

As the National League club faces an ongoing financial crisis many of the club’s administrative and support staff have gone unpaid and supporters, led by the Notts County FC Official Supporters Association (NCFCOSA), have been crowdfunding to help plug the gaps.

Volunteers from the Magpies’ fan group have been collecting donations outside Meadow Lane and at the turnstiles before pre-season friendlies as well as opening up online donations.

The bucket collection outside Ilkeston Town’s Manor Ground at the weekend raised more than £1,500 alone and the remainder will be coming from NCFCOSA coffers.

NCFCOSA secretary Patricia Akers told the Nottingham Post: “I am pleased to announce that we are able to help the staff again this week as a result of all your kind donations.

“The treasurer will donate £4,000 to the staff fund, this is made up of the bucket collections, cash and online donations, plus a donation of £1,000 from the NCFOSA.

“This week the supporters have done the staff proud.

“When I was at Meadow Lane the staff were so grateful, it really hit home how desperate they were, and without your donations the situation at Meadow Lane would have been worse than ever.”
