THE second annual 1874 Northwich Beer Festival has raised more than £3,000 for the club, according to organiser Andrew Perry.

He plans to present a cheque for £3,200 to chairman Paul Stockton before kick off in next Tuesday’s friendly against FC United of Manchester at Barton Stadium.

A similar sum was raised at the inaugural event, also hosted at Lostock Sports and Social Club, last year.

And Perry has confirmed the popular fundraiser will return next summer, provisionally on Saturday, June 27.

There's a lot of water gone under the bridge in the years since NVFC left for Manchester. One of the nice things is to see local football (all the LOCAL teams) now talking about football rather than debts, deceit, forced relegations, unpaid wages, bankruptcies etc etc.
As I said it's nice to see a 'good news' story so try not to wallow too long in the land of sour grapes - come out into the new world and enjoy such things. Life's too short to live in the past. We've all moved on.

This was my first sample of 1874 Northwich FC and I must say how impressed I was with the organisation of the Beer Festival. Very professionally achieved from the front door greetings to the excellent service from the bar staff, hard to believe that they were all 1874 Northwich FC fans.
Met a few of my old friends from the Drillfield days that have started to support this new fans owned football club and I must admit I'm now very tempted to visit the new club, maybe at the FC United match, just need to convince my uncle.

Well done to all involved
