Big week for Wolves Academy graduates

Thursday night was a big night for Premier League side Wolves as they managed a 4-0 victory against Armenian side FC Pyunik in the Europa League which will be etched in the memory of two Wolves Academy graduates in particular.

Firstly, due to changes made to the squad, Maximilian Kilman was handed his first start for the senior side after being a regular in the defence of the under-23s’ 2018/19 title-winning campaign. Meanwhile, getting Wolves’ second goal of the night against the team from Armenia, Morgan Gibbs-White scored his first senior competitive goal for the club he joined as an eight-year-old. The midfielder has spent the last 11 years of his young life growing up in the Academy, progressing through all the age groups to make his senior bow in 2017. The Stafford-born graduate netted for the senior side during the Asia Trophy pre-season tour of China, but his Pyunik goal got him off the mark in competitive football.

The Goalden Gate Superdraw has supported Wolves FC for many years now and has raised over £5.5m towards the Youth Academy. Everyone involved at MSA Ltd is very proud to see these young taking the next steps in their career paths.

Goalden Gate Superdraw vital to helping Nuneaton Borough prepare for 2019/20 Season

As the 2019/20 season soon approaches, for everyone at Nuneaton Borough FC, the club were quick to point out that a lot of the preseason preparations have been helped and aided by the support of fans that play the Goalden Gate Superdraw.

Nuneaton’s Club Secretary, Adam Etheridge, stated “It’s reassuring to know that we have regular income and the Goalden Gate Superdraw donations are always a big help. Over the course of the past year we’ve been able to use this money to help fund the creation of our Junior and Women’s sections of the Club, as well as improve the infrastructure at the ground. We’ve been able to carry out vital repairs to our irrigation system and maintenance equipment, as such the Liberty Way pitch is looking fantastic as we get ready for a big year at the Club.”

Over the course of last season Borough managed to generate just under £4k from the lottery scheme. Next season they are looking to increase membership through different campaigns so that the club can add to the £166,000 that has already been raised from the supporters over the years via the Goalden Gate Superdraw.
