New Year???s Day Raffle???so what do I win again?

At Gigg Lane on 16th January you just might find the half time raffle ticket sellers are shouting about something slightly different from the usual "Pound for the Ground".

That’s because at this match we won’t be offering one prize of £200 cash, but instead as many as twelve (yes, 12!) prizes in our New Year’s Day Raffle"¦the tickets have pictures of Christmas trees and reindeer on, which may confuse some after a heavy night but nevertheless, the rules are simple - tickets cost £1 each, there are at least 12 prizes and everything on offer has been kindly donated, so every penny raised goes towards club funds.

Last year £5 worth of tickets gave you a 1 in 32 chance of winning something"¦just a bit better than the lottery (even if the jackpot isn’t quite as life changing!)

Some of the prizes are FC United related and some aren’t, so why not buy an extra ticket or two for friends and family.

The list of confirmed prizes is now as follows:

- Festive food & drink hamper
- £99 pamper package voucher for The Y Club, Castlefield Hotel, Manchester
- £50 meal voucher at The Swan & Cemetery, Manchester Road, Bury
- Framed ’Football Fare’ art print
- Signed new FC United home shirt
- FC United club shop £10 voucher
- FC United club shop £20 voucher
- FC United club shop £50 voucher
- FC United family ticket & backstage tour at any home game this season
- Duncan Edwards book ("Duncan Edwards: The Full Report" by Iain McCartney)
- 2 adult and 2 child tickets for any Cineworld cinema
- Bottle of whisky

(See if you can test the ticket sellers on reciting the whole list without consulting their notes!)

FC United vs. Bradford Park Avenue, Saturday 16th January 2010, 3pm, Gigg Lane.
