Congratulations to the winners of our free Wembley Draws . The draws were made yesterday at half time by GTFC captain Craig Disley . The winners are:
Meal for 2 in Bobby Moore suite – Steve Crosskill
Half time penalties – Richard Cooper, Wayne Cunningham, Tom Bryan and Charles Lumley
Mascots – Owen Mountain and Sean Anderson
Flag Bearers – Cameron Backrath and Andrew Hill
We have announced the opportunity for kids to be a mascot or flag bearer at Wembley and now we have something very special for Adults.
Ever dreamt of taking a penalty on the hallowed Wembley pitch in front of over 40000 people? Well here is your chance. We have managed to pursuade the FA to do a half time penalty competition Mariners Trust v Wrexham Trust. This will involve 4 people – 3 penalty takers and a goalkeeper.
This participants will be selected from a draw to take place at the Cambridge game on March 16th and to be eligible to be in it you will have to be a Trust member as at midnight March 15th. Two places will be allocated to existing members and the remaining 2 places will be available to all members as at March 15th.All Adult members aged 16 and over will be eligible for the draw.
Just to clarify for both this and the Junior draw you will need to tell us you want to be in it, you will not be entered automatically. This is because we have to send forms to the FA immediately after the draw and so we need to ensure a) the winner is actually attending the game and b) the winner wants to take part.
For both the Junior and Adult draws we need to submit details of seat number so you will need to have bought your ticket by the time of the draw. Only the participants are allowed on the pitch, no family members or friends.
Adult member but penalty shoot out not for you? We still have something to make your day extra special. We have an executive package for two people as a free prize draw. This includes a meal before the game in the Bobby Moore lounge and great Club Wembley seats. If you win and you already have your tickets don’t worry these will be refunded. Again we are asking members to tell us if they want to be included in the draw and to be eligible you need to be a member by March 15th.
Hopefully you will agree that these are fantastic once in lifetime opportunities and we hope the winners have a day they will never forget. Good Luck !!
Special thanks to Dave Smith from the club for helping to make this possible.
We are delighted to confirm that we have secured 2 mascot places and 2 flag bearer places for the FA Trophy final at Wembley on March 24th . This is a unique opportunity for 4 Junior Mariners to have a day they will never forget.
Unfortunately there are strict age restrictions dictated by the FA for these. For mascots the age range is 7-11 and the age range for flag bearers is 9-12.
The mascot package includes full replica kit,goody bag,match-day programme and packed lunch. The flag bearer is the same apart from the replica kit is repaced by a free Umbro tracksuit.
The lucky Juniors will be met by an FA representative who will take them into the ground and look after them and then take them to their seats at the start of the game . Parents will not be allowed to accompany them .The child’s matchday ticket will be be paid for by the club but obtained by the Parent/Guardian.
We will be drawing out the lucky winners at the Cambridge game on March 16th and so if you want to be in the draw please let us know asap . Anyone who is a member by midnight Friday 15th will eligable apart from one of the places which will be exclusively for existing members.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity – good luck !!
