"Last night I attended the regular LISA meeting and discussed with all present (and what a great turn out) the contents of the Chairman’s financial statement that had been released that afternoon.
"There was a lively discussion, but at the end of it Keith, the Chairman and Linda, our hardworking Secretary presented to the club through me, a cheque for £15,000 which in effect cleared out their reserves.
"If you want to join LISA and help them rebuild, visit www.leigh-isa.org.uk or for a one off payment you can contact Linda on 07799 885590.
On behalf of the Club and the Board I received many words of support and encouragement and I can only tell you that it goes a long way in adding to the resolve to see this through.
"As Rob Parker, who kindly gave his time commented, `There is a lot of passion from the people in this room and our supporters in general,' and on behalf of the players I am really humbled by your fantastic support. Hopefully the crowd numbers will swell and I can assure you we will do our best going forward.
"It was also very encouraging that within 1 hour of the Chairman’s financial statement being released Michael Norris of Rivertime Corporate Finance Ltd pledged £2,000 which was accompanied by some very encouraging words. This morning one of the LISA members present last night dropped in a cheque for £100, for which we are truly grateful.
"We are on our way to our target of £40,000 and I will keep you informed of progress.
"Thank you for your marvellous support so far."
