Bull auctioned to help struggling football club

2 May 2011 Last updated at 04:06 GMT Aberdeen Angus An Aberdeen Angus heifer is among the items being auctioned to help Queen of the South A fund raising auction for a Scottish first division football team is to go ahead with a wide range of items - including a bullock and a heifer.

It is the latest in a series of events to help struggling Dumfries side Queen of the South.

Proceedings get under way at the town's auction mart on Huntingdon Road after its livestock sale.

Dozens of items have been donated to help the side facing "extremely difficult trading conditions".

The Palmerston Park club has reported six-figure losses in the last couple of financial years and is expected to do so again this campaign after a series of costly match postponements.

It has prompted directors to warn there is no option but to cut the budget for player wages.

In response to the financial difficulties, fans have set up a Save Our South campaign to help raise funds.

Their latest event is at the town's auction market.

The full list of items to be sold runs to more than 40 lots.

It includes an Aberdeen Angus bulling heifer, a one-year-old bullock, a farm gate and 15-dozen free range eggs.
