New Company To Honour Lane Legends

5 September 2013

A new company has been formed to honour two Notts County managerial legends – Jimmy Sirrel and Jack Wheeler.

The newly-formed Jimmy and Jack CIC (Community Interest Company) boasts Les Bradd as an ambassador and director, as part of a five-person board of directors

This also includes Notts’ head of media Jamie Dixon, finance director Roger Poulter, operations director Kevin Searcey and chairman Paul Lowe.

Paul offered an insight into the new company, saying: "As one that spent a lot of time in the company of Jimmy Sirrel, I came to understand how highly he valued youth and community investment.

"The Jimmy and Jack CIC has been set-up to carry on that work.  

"The legacy-creating journey started recently by me personally taking responsibility for organising the very successful ‘To Derby & Back – For Jimmy & Jack’ bike ride - a project that will raise around £6,000 to support the fund-raising of the Statue Fund committee."

Les added: "Although newly set-up, we already have a very experienced, motivated  and committed management team in-place – backed-up with sponsorship – and will be organising a number of diverse projects that will create a win-win for the football club, the supporters and the local community in general."

Kevin said: "Building upon the success of the bike ride, we have already hosted 32 people from Tibshelf in Derbyshire at the Notts v Peterborough game and we are looking to take a coach-load of NCFC senior citizens supporters for a day-trip to Skegness on Sunday 29 September." 

In the case of the Skegness trip, places will be limited to 40 places, with 20 pairs of free places allocated to the lucky winners of a prize draw that will take place at the Notts versus Tranmere game on Saturday 21 September.  

Entry forms can be obtained from the club shop.
