Whitby Town could be set for a financial boost over the winter months after a generous pledge by club president and sponsor Ivor Homer.

Homer, owner of club sponsor The Hart Inn, has pledged £100 for every Whitby goal and cleansheet at home games in December and January.

Homer said: “The club are constantly punching above their weight and the manager and lads are doing a cracking job at the moment, so I think they’ll cost me a few quid.

“It just adds a bit of incentive, the more I have to pay the better Whitby are doing so I hope I’m writing a big cheque.”

Chairman Manser is delighted with Homer’s gesture and hopes the Whitby community also get involved and back the Blues.

“I’m delighted with Ivor’s backing, it’s incredibly generous,” said Manser.

“We’d love it if anyone would get involved and pledge anything from £1 upwards per goal or cleansheet, every single penny helps and would help Chris and the lads push on.”
