WEE COUNTY football fans are helping Clacks' football teams net much-needed funding during the game's lockdown.

More than £2,500 has been pledged by Alloa Athletic supporters in the club's hour of need as it comes to terms with no match day revenue due Covid-19's impact.

The Recs side are in a better place than most to deal with the cost of football's shutdown but fans have promised to do their bit to ensure the Wasps' survival isn't solely dependent on chairman Mike Mulraney.

Longtime fan Brian Roach is behind the fundraiser, which is currently running on Facebook and Crowdfunder, and the kind-hearted supporters are bidding to secure £5,000 to see the Clacks side through an uncertain time.

Brian previously told Advertiser Sport: “We know the club is run really well but we can’t just sit back and expect Mike to prop up the club. It is everyone’s club.

“Some of the donations have been really quite substantial, but we are just asking everyone to spare what they can.”

Meanwhile, Sauchie Juniors' fundraising mission is now underway with the club asking its generous fans to get involved in a number of different activities.

The Beechwood Park side is running a 50/50 draw, with the proceeds split between the club and the winner, selling hats for £8 a pop, and are currently climbing the league table on Donate a Ticket, an online platform which allows fans to gift the cost of a virtual ticket to their club while pitting Premier Division teams against one another.

Sauchie are currently mid-table having raised more than £140 so far.
