Seaton Town put into place a slick commercial operation at their derby game with Beer Albion.

With Colyford Road being one of just three venues across the Fresha League to stage a game, the committee pulled out all the stops to maximise any opportunities to fund raise.

Boss Josh Stunell explained saying: “Off the pitch it was a real team effort. We had committee members on the gate, working the tea hut, operating the barbecue and selling draw tickets. I was really impressed with the togetherness shown by everybody involved. It just shows the potential at the club and I for one can’t wait for more such days in the future.”

In excess of 300 people were at the game, each paying the £2 admission fee that included a match programme.

With the only major outlay being the £89 paid for the three match officials it made for a welcome pay day at the club.

Stunell said: “I think they were still counting the money long into the night. It really was a very special day on and off the pitch.”
