Our Book Our People & The Twelfth Man

Our Book Our People

In support of the Development Fund, George Hayden is going to get published a one off, one print book which is a reference to the reasons why individual people decided to get on board with the ideals and values of FC United.

The book can be as big as we need it to be, and will be placed in the reception area of our new home, on display, as a permanent fixture under a glass display case, with a page being turned on a daily basis.

The contents of the book will be up to you. You will be able to "buy" a page where you can write about the reasons why you are following FC. What you put on the page is up to you. It can just be a photo, just text, or a mixture of both. All text must be in font size 10 and your total entry including photograph (if you choose that option) should not exceed A4 size.

The book will remain on show for as long as the club exists, which gives you a unique chance of being documented in the clubs history.

The price of a page will be £18.78 and all money will go towards the purchase of our new ground.

A draw will determine which page your particular entry will be on, however it will be a one off with no copies.

For £18.78 you will not only be able to be part author of the book, you will also receive a certificate which documents your entry, your page number and the date when your page will be displayed for the fist time.

In order to pre-book your page, please send a cheque to the value of £18.78 to the FC United Development Fund, and endorse the cheque on the rear with "Our Book, Our People".

Cheques should be forwarded to the following address:

Our Book Our People
FC United of Manchester
221 Ducie House
37 Ducie Street
M1 2JW.

Although your entries do not have to be sent straight away, I am urging all potential contributors to book your page as early as possible.

If you wish to send your entry together with your cheque, please place it on a CD with any photo’s in jpg format, alternatively you can email me your submission to georgehayden9@aol.com.

All those who choose to delay their entry please enclose your contact details together with your cheque.
