Moors Donate To Paddy Almond Fund

Jason Ainsley and Mark Anderson handed over a donation of more than £300 to Darlington Chief Executive David Johnston on Saturday to go towards the fund set up for Paddy Almond.

The Quakers defender remains in Royal London Hospital undergoing treatment for a bleed on the brain sustained during the second half of their FA Trophy tie at Southend United a fortnight ago.

Darlington’s Supporters Group launched a fundraiser with the blessing of Almond and his family which has raised over £13,000 and attracted some high-profile donations, including £1,000 from Newcastle United’s Isaac Hayden and £1,000 from former club Sunderland.

Moors’ coaching staff and players were keen to do something to show their support for the 20-year-old, which resulted in a donation of £340 being presented prior to kick-off in the game at Blackwell Meadows on Saturday.

As well as the donation from the staff and players, Spennymoor Town Supporters Club also held a collection and donated to the Fund – click here if you would like to make your own donation.

Everyone at Spennymoor Town wishes Paddy Almond a very speedy recovery.
