Daniels begin shield defence

STAMFORD will begin their defence of the Lincolnshire Senior Shield at home to Brigg Town on Saturday, July 23.

The game will form part of the club’s pre-season campaign and will kick off at 3pm at the Vic Couzens Stadium.

The Daniels’ annual grand draw for the Stamford AFC 200 Club will be held at the clubhouse on Thursday, at 7.30pm.

More than £3,000 will be paid out with a first prize of £1,000, and eight other large cash prizes.

Since the draw was launched 12 seasons ago, more than £120,000 has been raised for the club and organiser Keith Scarber expressed thanks to all the 200 club members for their support.

Refreshments will be provided on Thursday and members are welcome to bring a guest.
