Supporters’ Club Launches Wullie’s War Chest

Annan Athletic Supporters’ Club have launched Wullie’s War Chest – a fantastic drive to raise £20,000 to help new manager Wullie Gibson assemble his squad for next season.

The manager has quickly started work to secure summer signings after being named as successor to Peter Murphy a week ago.Members of the Annan Athletic Supporters’ Club (AASC) are going all-out to bolster those efforts – including by working with the Galabank board to secure the rights to name the ground’s covered terrace next season.

And they issued a rallying cry for fans to unite behind them as they launched the Wullie’s War Chest drive to help reach their fundraising target during a special supporters’ Q&A with Gibson last night (THURS). AASC vice-chairman Ross Johnstone said: “We aim to raise between £15,000 and £20,000 as additional funds to help Wullie with transfers and associated costs.

“We’re asking supporters for monthly contributions to the fund – however large or small – from August until May. With the help from those who feel able to, we hope to give the manager a great launch pad for his first season.

“We’ve already had tremendous support for Wullie’s War Chest from our members before the launch and hope the wider fan community can get behind us too. We know this can make a real difference to the team on the pitch.

‘AASC hopes to partner with a business or individual on its sponsorship of the terracing, in tandem with its wider War Chest push.It will also be the back-of-the-shirt sponsor of the Galabankies’ home and away kits next season.
