Comedy Night Launched at Lewes FC

Lewes FC logoCommunity organisation Lewes Football Club are working with Comedy Beats  to announce a very special Comedy night, in aid of the clubs 12th Man scheme.


The 12th Man Scheme, already popular with other progressive non- league clubs, is a supporter-led initiative to raise money to increase the team’s playing budget and for fans to make a direct impact on the pitch as well as from the terraces.

Money raised by the 12th Man Scheme does not replace the money already allocated by the club for paying players — it is a ring-fenced bucket of funding that can be accessed by the manager for the sole purpose of paying new players — and will never be used for any other means. It is to be used at the sole discretion of the manager, when he finds the player or players he wants to bring into the squad whether that may be this season or next.

The scheme will work on a ‘pay-what-you-want’ basis. It can be for as little or as much as fans decide — and can be paid via a one-off payment or by a regular donation through a weekly, monthly or annual instruction.
