Since it began, 5 seasons ago, the Pledge has raised over £11,000 for the Silkmen
The SST are going to be running the Pledge again the season. The aim of the scheme, like most of the Silkmen Supporters’ Trust activities, is to raise money for Macclesfield Town Football Club. We had our best ever return last season, £2800, and we have generated in total over £11,000 for the club in the five years since we started it - a tremendous effort from all our pledgers. Thanks so much to everyone who has participated in prior years. The pledges are already coming in for return to our League 2. For those who haven’t got involved so far, here’s your opportunity. It’s a fun way to help the club directly related to the actual performance on the pitch. I do hope you can join in.
This is how it works:
We ask you to pledge £0.25, £0.50, £1.00 or more under various headings such as clean sheets, various players scoring goals, team goals, team points, wins, and any other pledges which you think are fun to make. The more ‘bizarre’ the better – but only as long as I can keep a track of it! Some outwardly seem unlikely but Ryan Lloyd defied that by scoring from his own half at Maidenhead last season!.
All pledges will be based on 1st team games in the League 2, FA Cup, Carabao Cup and Checkatrade Trophy (unless you specify differently) and will run from the first game of the season
Those who support the scheme with a pledge will have their name and details of their pledge displayed in the match program each week and also on the SST web site.
