LFC management and players snub disabled supporters.

A packed Almondvale Suite

In all the years I’ve followed Livingston, I’ve never been so ashamed as I was last night when not one representative from the management or playing staff could find time to turn up for the 'Karaoke Challenge' fundraiser to raise funds for the proposed disabled shelter at Almondvale Stadium.

The Livi support may be small in numbers, but we are huge in passion. We have followed the team through thick and thin, through rain, snow and sleet, (last weeks mini hurricane!) so for the board and players to snub this 'LFC versus Supporters' night is a massive kick in the teeth for event organiser Deasel and the fans who turned up on the night.

A fantastic amount of just over £1000 was raised through entrance and raffle ticket sales.

The supporters who did turn up witnessed a great night with teams from the OSC, LLSC, OL as well as a LiviLions messageboard team compete for the trophies, kindly sponsored by 'Hair Division'.

That ex Livi favourite Brian “The Bee” McPhee has shown support for the 'shelter fund' by offering one of his personal SPL tops for auction with all monies raised going towards the 'shelter fund' only goes to highlight the fact that the relationship between the current players and the supporters has surely never been on more rocky ground?. What a fantastic gesture from a great guy!

It’s a pity that the current players don’t have the same enthusiasm when it comes to helping out the disabled supporters.

They should be ashamed of themselves!
