The Trust committee would like to provide an update in these uncertain times in relation to the successful Crowdfunder campaign that the Glovers Trust ran in May to sponsor the Away Stand at Huish Park for the 2020/21 season in memory of Martin Baker.
We are extremely grateful for the donations that were made in contribution to the campaign, without which we couldn’t have achieved our goal, and we are continuing to work with Yeovil Town FC to get everything in place for the beginning of the season, whenever that may be.
You may recall that those who donated were also placed into a prize draw that presented a chance of winning merchandise that we were able to secure from the Club. This merchandise included season tickets that came as part of the stand sponsorship package, and home and away football shirts that we purchased with the additional money that we raised over and above the £5,000 target.
The draw has recently been undertaken and the winners have been notified directly and we are pleased to be able to publicly confirm the winners as follows:
2020/21 Season Tickets – ‘Big Dave’ & Oliver Hallam
2020/21 Yeovil Town Home Shirt – Mike Hudson, Roger McCabe, Steve Whitlock, David Tolley (from Wales), Stuart Tilley
2020/21 Yeovil Town Away Shirt – Adrian Gleave, John Hartley, Victoria Freeman, Ben Mitchell, Ross McKendrick
We will communicate further with the above individuals once we have received the prizes from Yeovil Town FC.
We have been directly trying to contact ‘Big Dave’ without success so far as information on the individual who donated under this name is very limited – we are guessing his name is Dave but will reserve judgement on his size! If we have still not reached him by the 30th of September then we will re-draw the prize.
If Big Dave sees this update, we urge him to get in touch, via firstname.lastname@example.org or anybody knows of this individual please could you let him know that he has won one of the top prizes! We will of course require evidence of the donation that was made.
Many thanks to those who participated and congratulations to the winners!
We are hopeful that fans will be able to return to Huish Park as soon as it is safe to do so and to see the hoardings proudly displayed on the away terrace!
Best wishes to all YTFC Supporters.
The Glovers Trust Board 💚
