FOOTBALL fans from around the country have got the bidding in our online auction off to a great start with pledges totalling almost £500.

And now, to help ensure we raise as much money as possible for the Warren Hay Road Safety Action Group, there are two new lots to tempt you.

The first is a football signed by all the team at Peterborough United, and the second is also a Posh item - a shirt signed by one of the players.

Bidding will continue until 5pm on March 7, so there is still plenty of time to try to secure the item that has caught your eye.

To view all of the football goodies log on to www.huntspost24.co.uk and click through to the bidding section.

At the moment, the highest bid received is for the signed Middlesbrough FC shirt - the highest bid on Tuesday was £110.

A football signed by the Chelsea squad was going for the bargain sum of just £63. Blues fans will need to dig deep to overtake the generosity of Boro's fans.

There are also items available from Arsenal, Sunderland, Everton and Liverpool as well as a host of smaller clubs which all donated the items for the charity auction.

All the money raised will be put towards road safety improvements on the A141 in Huntingdon where 16-year-old Warren Hay was knocked down and killed by a car.

The Chelsea fan had been crossing the road to watch a football match at Jubilee Park.

Cambridgeshire County Council has agreed to support a scheme to install a light controlled crossing on the road, but further funding is needed.

Both Huntingdon Town Council and Huntingdonshire District Council are looking at the possibility of providing some funding.
