Burns night raises £3k for Welfare


Staveley MW FC raised more than £3,000 at their first-ever sporting dinner, which was held in the clubhouse at the Inkersall Road ground.

The event, which featured former Nottingham Forest star Kenny Burns as speaker and comedy from Billy Flywheel, was a sell-out with than 100 people attending.

Staveley chairman Terry Damms said: “The dinner was a huge success and we hope it is the first of many. The funds raised will help pay for the development of our ground.

“Plans are in place for a new 250-seater south stand and improved changing room and wash room facilities.”

Staveley are currently third in the Baris NCEL Premier Division and in the last 16 of the FA Vase.
