COVENTRY UNITED LADIES will show their appreciation to crowdfunding twins Hattie and Alice Mogan by making the sister’s mascots for this weekend’s clash with London City Lionesses.
The twins, along with father Michael Mogan MBE, set-up a crowdfunding campaign to support the club’s players and staff after they entered voluntary liquidation just two days before Christmas.
And the twins campaign saw them raise more than £15,000 in the space of 15 days, with all proceeds being given directly to the affected players and staff.
Their father Michael is also helping to petition for the FA to reassess their decision to hand the club a crippling 10-point deduction which leaves the Red and Greens favourites for relegation.
United are now bottom of the table on minus four points, 10 behind nearest rivals Watford having previously been above the Hornets on goal difference.
The club have decided to thank the girls for their efforts by making them and their under-10’s teammates mascots for the day at their next home match.
The Tweet can be viewed here and reads: “NEWS: Children go free! This Sunday’s game is a big thank you to Hattie, Alice and Michael Mogan for creating the fundraiser to help our club.
“Hattie, Alice and their whole team will also be mascots for the day!”
Children go free for the clash with London City Lionesses which takes place on Sunday, January 23 with kick-off at 2pm at Butts Park Arena.
