What Can You Get For A Quid!

April 13, 2006

[image1] A quid doesn’t go very far these days does it? You need thirty five of them to buy a new Rovers shirt and a pint costs more than two these days.

Here’s another alternative. Many if not all of you will at some point this season have seen the Supporters Club Super Draw raffle prize. The words raffle prize do not really do it justice.

A brand new Yamaha twist and go 50cc scooter in customised Rovers colours, a one off paint design by Dream Machine, and the stake is just £1 a go. The prize includes all the safety gear and training you need, plus insurance and tax and even a tank of fuel, I struggle to think what else you could possibly need (other than a licence) to be able to get on this bike and start enjoying it pretty much straight after you have taken delivery of it.The prize is valued at almost £3500 and is far and away the most valuable prize ever given away by the Supporters Club.

Second prize in the raffle is also a belter. A customised ‘Breeze’ mountain bike, again in a unique Rovers colour scheme. This also comes with all the necessary safety gear for the winner to enjoy their prize straight away, and with summer fast approaching, there will be plenty of time for that.

Third prize is a signed and framed Rovers shirt signed by the squad, a prize any Gashead would love to win.


These prizes represent a big effort by the Supporters Club to raise further money to help the football club. The Supporters Club Share Scheme brings in a very good regular amount which we pay to the club each month. You may well have seen the cheques being presented on the pitch at half time during home matches.

With few home matches left this season, this Saturday is one of your last chances to buy a ticket or two. Please look out for the ticket sellers as you come through the turnstiles. Alternatively, tickets can be bought from 199 or Pirate Leisure during regular opening hours. Additionally, if you still have the tickets we sent out just before Christmas, why not buy them and return the stubs to us for entry into the draw? These are great prizes and for just a £1 stake they surely have to be worth a go.

The prizes will be presented on the pitch at the last game of the season, so have a go, who knows it may be you that wins!
