📝 Andy Bainborough scoops January's big Foundation prize

16 January 2020

First out of the hat for 2020 for the Exeter City Foundation’s BIG £1,000 prize was Andy Bainborough, seen in the picture above receiving his prize during City's recent match against Cambridge United alongside City's operations manager Andy Gillard.

Andy claims that he has the shortest walk of anyone to receive his prize, as he was already on the pitch replacing divots as a volunteer Groundsman, a job that Andy has done for the last 20 years or so!

When asked what he will do with his windfall, Andy said: “After sharing some of the money with my wife Carol and grown up children Katie and Peter I will buy something nice for my first Grandchild  which Katie is expecting in May.

"I also collect postcards so I will put something towards adding to my collection, and helping some of my favourite charities such as CAP (Christians Against Poverty). This is my 55th year of supporting City and I am very excited about the future of our club."

We can all agree, a worthy winner!
