Striker Danny Haynes has an added incentive this season, as every goal he scores will raise money for the Football League’s Official Charity Partner.
Each time Danny finds the net this term, £100 will be donated to Prostate Cancer UK by a passionate Notts County fan, whose company has been a big supporter of the club in recent years.
Adrian Rawden, managing director at On-Call Recruitment, set Danny the challenge on Twitter and the former Charlton Athletic frontman was just as keen to generate funds for the charity of his choice.
Following two goals in as many appearances during pre-season, Danny is eager to continue that form and raise plenty of cash for Prostate Cancer UK.
Adrian is backing him to hit 20 goals during 2013.14, having been impressed with what he has seen from the County number 10 so far.
“As a fan we all know we have been a bit light in that department so Danny was a good choice, he’s new here and a striker who has shown he means business,” he said.
“I would love to see Danny get 30 but 20 would be a good target to achieve.
“In the Championship I understand Danny has a one in three strike rate, so 20 in League 1 is achievable and the charity would certainly benefit if he does.
“I've had a few tweets from people saying they hope he costs me £2,000!
“I had a figure in mind to donate to charity and thought I could link it to football with cash per goal incentive hopefully it works and both the charity and Notts’ benefit.”
Notts begin the Sky Bet League 1 campaign this evening with a televised clash against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane (7.45pm kick-off).
