Neal hails funding boost

20 March 2015

Blue & Yellow Club makes a difference

Members of the Blue & Yellow Club have received special praise from Neal Ardley after they recently donated a cheque for £26,000 to the playing budget.

The club, which was jointly founded three years ago by the late Martin Fielding and AFC Wimbledon Vice President Iain McNay, has gone from strength to strength since its formation.

Members gain unique behind-the-scenes benefits in return for a subscription fee each season, including attending Neal Ardley’s training sessions, and the manager has been delighted to give something back for their excellent support.

“These supporters get a few benefits, including dinner with the coaching staff twice a season, and it is really good,” said Neal. “We will sit around and discuss loads of issues and they get a real insight into what goes on at the club. They get that benefit and it is obviously great for us to get funding towards the playing budget.

“The club is even working hard behind the scenes to raise money for heart monitors for the Under-21s and stuff like that. They are doing some great work and it is a pleasure to have dinner with them twice a season.”

The latest dinner was staged recently at Cannizaro House on Wimbledon Common when members handed over the cheque for £26,000 (see picture above).

Neal Ardley, Neil Cox and recently retired defender Andy Frampton were among those to attend the dinner. 

The club’s next event is a dinner at the House of Lords on 11 June. For anyone interested in finding out more about the Blue & Yellow Club and what it can offer, please e-mail Ian McNay at
