MONEY raised by Forres Mechanics fans through the Donate A Ticket scheme will be used to keep Mosset Park in good condition.

Cans supporters have raised £4000 through the initiative, which allows fans to donate their usual match ticket fee to their club.

The Donate A Ticket website held a cross-country cup, which saw Forres fans raise thousands of pounds for their club before being knocked out by Bonnyrigg Rose.

The cash is a big boost and will be put to good use, according to club secretary Ian Wood.

He said: “Forres Mechanics had a great run in the Donate A Ticket Cross Country Cup and our total earnings from the scheme are now just less than £4000.

“We are top of the Highland League donations table.

“We will be putting the funds to good use by replacing our ageing mower enabling us to keep the Mosset Park pitch in tip-top condition.

“We would like to thank everyone who has donated for their generosity and support during these difficult times.

“Donations are still being accepted if anyone would like to add to the mower fund!”
