The Little John Lottery has made history yet again when for the second time in recent memory a pair of winning balls were announced to cover the December and January draws.
In recent weeks it had been bitterly cold at Lenton Lane but as the hard working committee members assembled gathered for the draw the temperature in the clubhouse rose significantly thanks to the excitement of the draw and also the newly installed gas central heating system!
Those lucky enough to be watching events unfold remained enthralled as Robbie immediately set about searching the ether for the first lucky winner
Once again Robbie did not hang about in his mission to make millions. Indeed, in less time than it takes to say “when are we getting the new lights fitted” Robbie magically pulled the December winning ball from his bag to a spontaneous round of applause from the small band of on looking committee members.
Closer inspection revealed the lucky ball was none other than number 16 (sixteen) and a quick check down the list revealed that the winner was Sarah Johnson, eldest daughter of club chairman Richard Johnson. Sarah is a founder member of the Little John Lottery and pockets a cheque for £105.00 for her good fortune.
The excitement wasn’t over however and in the blink of an eye Robbie spat forth the second lucky winner of the day as the winner of the January draw emerged from the ball tunnel. Closer inspection revealed the lucky ball was number 28 (twenty eight) and a quick check down the list revealed that the winner was Adam Cunliffe, currently plying his trade at number seven for the Outlaws a well as spending his spare time coaching our rugby league friends down the road at Nottingham Trent. Adam pockets a cheque for £105.00 for his good fortune.
Club chairman Richard Johnson was quick to congratulate both participants on their win, commenting “just after Christmas most people are pretty skint having splashed out their hard earned cash over the Christmas period. However these lucky windfalls will no doubt go a long way to easing the financial burden for both our lucky winners!”
The Outlaws are looking to continue their improvement on and off the field. Indeed plans are already afoot for the new 2019 campaign and funds are needed more than ever. Supporters of the club are urged to sign up and in doing so, continue to grow the game of rugby league in Nottingham
