The Striker Lottery has been suspended until further notice due to COVID-19.

Striker Lottery Manager, Harry Reid, said: “Given the current situation we are all in, we have found ourselves in a position where not only can our agents not collect from certain establishments (pubs, clubs, shops etc), but we cannot put our agents and customers in danger when collecting door-to-door.

“We have no alternative but to suspend the Striker Lottery until such time the all clear is given.

“Please do not worry if you are in credit as when we restart the total credit you had from week 40 will still be there in full.

“If you pay by Standing Order or Direct Debit you could ask your bank to suspend it and restart when we start back.

“However, if you leave it being paid into the Striker Account,  it will be there when we commence again and you will be in credit and we can always then review the situation as to how we go forward.

“Please be assured you will not lose your money. The Striker account is separate to that of the Club and I will each week download the Standing Orders and Direct Debits at home and will therefor know exactly how much each member has in credit.

“We are not closing the Striker Lottery down, only suspending it due to the present situation, so thank you for your loyal support and please stay safe.”

We as a club would also like to thank all of those members who have donated their regular Striker Lottery payments to the football club as donations, while the lottery is suspended – the gesture is very much appreciated by us all at Crabble.
