A Social Media Story storified by Eastleigh FC
North Leigh have issued a statement of appreciation after Eastleigh chairman Stewart Donald's "wonderful gesture" of donating Eastleigh's share of the gate receipts from Saturday's FA Cup tie to their eighth-tier opponents.
“Towards the end of the game, it was announced that the total receipts from the game would be donated to North Leigh by the chairman of Eastleigh FC, Mr Stewart Donald, who is a local West Oxfordshire resident with very strong personal and family connections to the North Leigh chairman Peter King, stretching back over 20 years.
“This wonderful gesture means our total receipts from FA competitions this season will total circa £25k."
