The much delayed December draw of the Little John Lotto took place at the White Hart in Nottingham, just ahead of the Outlaws monthly committee meeting, their first get together of 2018!
Whilst the busy, hard-working committee members paused for a well-earned break, the random number generator (or “Robbie” as he is affectionately known) was wheeled out of his mobile storage unit and dusted down ahead of the big draw.
Those lucky enough to be watching events unfold remained enthralled as Robbie immediately set about searching the ether for the lucky winner.
Indeed, in less time than it takes to say “Im going to drink less and exercise more in 2018 ” Robbie magically pulled the winning ball from his bag to a spontaneous round of applause from the small band of excited spectators and interested onlookers.
Closer inspection revealed the lucky ball was none other than number 43 (forty three) and a quick check down the list revealed that the winner was Nick Robb, keen supporter and former coach of the Outlaws. Nick pockets a cheque for £107.50 for his good fortune
Club chairman Richard Johnson was quick to congratulate Nick on his win, commenting “I am especially pleased to hear about Nicks’s good fortune. The cold, dark months of January are always miserable so lets hope this windfall puts a little sparkle of light into Nick’s pocket”
The Outlaws are looking to continue their improvement on and off the field and the club already planning for the 2018 campaign. With this in mind funds are needed more than ever and supporters of the club are urged to sign up and in doing so, continue to grow the game of rugby league in Nottingham.
