The chairman of a National League team this week donated £12,500 to the squad’s eighth-tier opponents.
Stewart Donald, who leads Eastleigh F.C. team the ‘Spitfires’, gave away the match proceeds from their FA Cup final qualifying round win over North Leigh on Saturday.
What a guy!
The team, who reached the third round of the FA cup last season, announced the generous offer on Twitter.
It said: ‘All proceeds from today’s game will go to North Leigh F.C. courtesy of Stewart Donald. We wish you a safe trip back to Oxfordshire!’
North Leigh replied: ‘Absolutely great day out. Thanks for your your generosity. Have a great season.’
BBC Radio Solent’s Eastleigh commentator Ian Wilding said: ‘Eastleigh were a community club before Stewart Donald arrived and they’ve kept that going by helping other teams, and forging relationships with other clubs.
‘I think it’s a fantastic gesture. Last season, when Scott Rendall was injured for a year at Woking, Donald helped pay for his medical fees.
‘He does a lot of things like that which are good for him and good for the club as well.’
