The Hednesford Town Supporters Association Quiz Night took place at Keys Park on Saturday night and once again raised money towards helping the Football Club build on its first season back in The Skrill North.
Over 50 supporters made up some 13 teams as “Thin on the ground” were crowned champions and, including a raffle kindly funded by prizes from Chadsmoor Fish Bar, The Kitchen Cupboard – Hednesford, The Anglers Peg – Chadsmoor and various individual donations, the total raised on the night came to over £150.
Joint Chairman of the SA, Scott Smith, was delighted with another great turnout and, despite The Pitmen losing to North Ferriby United in the afternoon’s main attraction, thanked all fans who attended and reserved special praise for quizmaster Keith Harley.
‘The quiz night is in its third year now and continues to prove a very important date in the SA calendar and one which could not happen without the diligent work of organiser Keith Harley and his assistants, Carol Shepherd and Linda Berry.
‘It was great to see so many members get together to raise money for our organisation and we hope that, with further events planned before the end of the season, 2014 will be another successful year for all those associated with the Football Club.’
Several new members of the Pitmen Prize Draw also entered and plans are now afoot to reunite the FA Trophy winning team of 2004 in a similar fashion to the hugely successful Middlesbrough FA Cup reunion night in 2012: more details of that night will be announced in due course.
