Albion Rovers Donate £10,000 Of Scottish Cup Run TV Money To Children’s Charity

By Chris Wright

Soccer - William Hill Scottish Cup - Quarter Final - Rangers v Albion Rovers - Ibrox

The footballing feel-good stories just keep on coming today with the news that Albion Rovers have announced that the club are going to donate a healthy wedge of the television money they’ve managed to rake in on their run to the Scottish Cup quarter-finals to charity.

Albion drew 1-1 with Rangers at Ibrox on Sunday in the quarters, thus earning themselves a lucrative replay – with it being estimated that the League Two (i.e, the Scottish fourth tier) club can expect to earn around £250,000 thanks to Sky Sports signing a deal to screen both ties live.

Thanks to that windfall, a local children’s charity are about to find themselves £10,000 better off after Albion chairman John Devlin revealed the club would be donating a large sum of their television money to the Cash For Kids Appeal.

Devlin told the Daily Record:

“So often Albion Rovers as a club have gone cap in hand to others looking for sponsorship and money [so] we are absolutely delighted to give £10,000 to the Cash For Kids Appeal.”

Bloody good on ‘em!
