Collection for Dominic Hill

£150 has been collected for 12th Man in memory of Dominic Hill, a lifelong United fan who played for the Raging Fever fans' team.

We are very appreciative of Hayes and Yeading fans as well as United fans contributing to this collection to commemorate a fan who will be sorely missed.

John Matthews of Raging Fever has written as follows:

Dear Trevor,

Re: Collection for Dominic Hill

Raging Fever played Hayes & Yeading fans yesterday before the main match. Prior to our game we held a minute’s applause for Dominic Hill who sadly passed away last week. Dom was a lifelong fan of Oxford who played for Raging Fever on a number of occasions. He lived in Sheffield and so most of his appearances for us were on away trips in that area. His last game for us was in October at York where he featured in our largest win this year.

You will know Dominic’s brother Andy who is running the marathon on behalf of the 12th Man fund.

After hearing the sad news, the Hayes fans asked whether they could contribute towards a fund of Andy’s choice. As a result, all of the match fees from both sides and some additional contributions from spectators were collected and we have £150 to put towards the 12th Man in Dom’s memory. This is a wonderful gesture on the Hayes fans’ part and is in keeping with the ethos of what Raging Fever represents i.e. fans meeting up to enjoy football and assist each other where they can.
