The item receiving the highest big was the Jakemans Stadium sign which welcomed fans to the ground, fetching £637.

The club crest which was the centrepoint of the Town End display was bought for £560 - while the most eyecatching deal was arguably a toilet sign featuring two club badges, which cost one punter £295.

Other items up for sale included the boardroom table (£266), programme kiosk (£360.53), the manager's chair (£245) and a raffle drum (£165).

In total, more than £10,200 was raised from more than 70 lots.

More items are expected to go up for auction after the play-offs have concluded.
