What is the Brakes 12th Man Fund?
The 12th Man Fund, already popular with other progressive non-league clubs, is an initiative to raise money to increase the team’s playing budget and for fans to make a direct impact on the pitch as well as from the terraces.
Money raised by the 12th Man Fund does not replace the money already allocated by the club for paying players – it is a ring-fenced bucket of funding that can be accessed by the manager for the sole purpose of paying new players – and will never be used for any other means. It is to be used at the sole discretion of the manager, when he finds the player or players he wants to bring into the squad whether that may be this season or next.
Manager Paul Holleran said 'We recognise how much you supporters already contribute to allow us to put a team out on the pitch that can compete at this level. We will never take that for granted. It is your community, your town, your club. If you have £1, or £20 or £100 to contribute it will all go towards the team that you see playing on the pitch each week. We don't want to put a minimum or maximum donation out there, we want it to be inclusive for every person in the community. Thank you for your great support'.

Who administers the scheme?
The scheme will be run by the Leamington FC Vice-Presidents’ Club. All monies will be paid into a separate account in the name of the Vice-Presidents’ Club and will be
ring-fenced for the above purpose.
Contributions can be made from as little as £10 per month. Obviously the more fans that join the scheme, more funds will be available to the manager to improve the playing squad.
