Today is the 150th anniversary of the FA and also the fourth qualifying round of the FA Cup and so what better day to launch our latest fundraiser which is linked directly to the FA Cup.

We are absolutely delighted to launch our Grand 2013/14 FA Cup Draw . Tickets are £1 each and are available online in books of 10 and from all the bars in the ground as well as from Mariners Trust board members. There will be 32 winners when the draw is made around the time of the fourth round.

The 32 winners will each “win” one of the teams  still left in the competition. All 32 winners will receive a cash prize of £10 and the eventual overall winner will receive a minimum of £500 , the runners up £250 and losing semi finalists £75. Prize money is as stated or 50% of ticket sales whichever is the greater. This draw is in aid of GTFC Youth development so please support and help the future of the club.

As well as buying tickets yourself we are also looking for people who can sell some books to family, friends, work colleagues etc . If you think you can help with this please get in touch by e-mailing us at and we will make arrangements to get some books to you.

Massive thank you to trust member Steve Davey for his support on this project.
