Sunderland winger Duncan Watmore has made a ‘substantial contribution’ to his former club Altrincham’s fundraiser, the National League North side have announced.
The 26-year-old played for the Robins before his move to then-Premier League Sunderland in 2013.
With the club facing significant financial challenges due to the COVID-19 outbreak leading to the season suspension, a GoFundMe page was started, and has currently raised £17,307 overall.
Of Watmore’s contribution, Alty tweeted: “A big thank you to the former Robin for making a substantial contribution to our fundraiser. What a fantastic and much-appreciated gesture.”
