Are Imps Half Way There
According to the Blue Square Premier Official Site and , or rather STMI’s optimistic nature, the Imps could be half-way there in their quest to build a fifty grand Renaming Raffle – a veritable Lincolnshire-wide-pride fighting fund for David Holdsworth’s summer plans. The Imps CEO is eager to see pledges turn into pounds but the arrival of Adam Smith does appear half of the high calibre duo DH appears to be gunning for.
Steve Prescott suggests that the initiative is gaining momentum too, in an article on the official Blue Square Premier Site today. Says the Imps CEO
“The Name Our Stadium sales are progressing very well with a consistent number of entries being received each week,” Prescott said in the Lincolnshire Echo.
“I am very grateful for the support shown by those who have entered already, and those that have pledged to do so.
“The playing budget is obviously the biggest single expenditure of any football club, so the extra funds that are being raised from Name Our Stadium are making a significant difference.
“It is enabling the board to release funds for the manager to sign his preferred targets.
“We need all Imps fans and local businesses to get behind the campaign by submitting at least one £50 entry.
“And I would ask the large numbers of fans and businesses who pledged to enter, to submit their entry as soon as possible.”
Prescott revealed he has submitted two entries and would like to name the venue Community Stadium, Sincil Bank if he were to win.
“That would reflect how our facilities are used every day of the week by local community groups,” he said.
That’s interesting because the Imps Trust, could, thanks to new blood ideas as well as rising membership thanks to Lincoln City baner, be able to utilise the event more. Chairman Chris Ashton’s hosting of the Race Night in the last few years has been legendary and seen a princely return for the Raconteur and punters. It was standing room only when the LadyImps were the Bookies a few years ago.
