Ticket No 210 won – The winner of this draw is a member of the unofficial forum Armchair Army.

Funnily enough the winner was part of the group that sponsored the match ball. One of the lads from the same group actually drew the ticket out, we asked him if he wanted to do the draw as it was his birthday so he drew their own ticket out, how’s that for a bit of luck!
Even better though they then decided that they are going to buy community shares with the winnings, has a nice symmetry to it don’t you think!
There was a tremendous total for the DF Barrels on Saturday of £493.00.

Thanks to everyone who bought a ticket and or who donated into the Barrels. We have raised over £30,000 now in the Barrels in approx 3 and a half years. Not bad for loose change.
