Twelfth Man ??? Launched 13th February


Andy Griffiths was the lucky winner of the first Twelfth Man competition and he has volunteered to run this season’s draw. Andy is hopeful that everyone will get behind the competition for two main reasons.

1) For Andy it has been a fantastic experience getting to know what goes on in the dressing room, at training and by being part of the team, even if he didn’t actually get a game.

2) The second reason is by far the more important of the two - as you all know, the club is working extremely hard to have a home to call our own. This will be made all the more possible if supporters can get behind fundraising ideas like The Twelfth Man, which we hope will raise over £1,000 for the Development Fund.

For the one lucky ticket holder their prize will consist of:

• Becoming a signed up "player" with your name on the web site and printed on the back of the programme
• Attendance at twice-weekly training sessions
• Being part of the dressing room on match days to listen to the team talk (subject to some conditions)
• Travelling on the team bus where there is a bus organised to away fixtures during the month long period
• The winner will be given squad training gear which will be yours to keep

In addition to this you will, subject to ability, have a chance to take part in training and match day warm-ups, with the possibility of making the subs bench if you catch Margy’s eye.

Part of the prize will be to attend training, which is held every Monday and Wednesday nights unless there is a midweek game. This is of course subject to the winner’s situation.

Tickets are on sale from 13th February 2010 they cost £2 or you can get 3 for £5. They’re available from sellers around the ground, the Development Fund Stall or by contacting 12thman@fc-utd.co.uk

Buy a ticket, it’s for the Development Fund, but it might just give you, or someone you know, a prize money simply cannot buy. The club needs a new talisman that could be YOU........the next TWELFTH MAN.
