Last day for Adams signed shirt auction!

7 May 2013

The auction moves into the final 24 hours for the signed shirt....

Coventry City left-back Blair Adams has donated one of his match-worn shirts to help raise money for Sky Blues in the Community, and the auction is now into it's LAST DAY!

The shirt, which has been signed by the Sky Blues squad, is being auctioned off on E-Bay to raise funds for the SBitC (Sky Blues in the Community) in support of their various projects around the local area.

The 21-year old has recently returned from a knee injury, starring in the last game of the season at Notts County. 


The City defender explained he couldn't think of a better way to use the shirt, than raise money in support of various projects around the Coventry and Warwickshire area.

Adams said: “I was going to give the shirt away on Twitter but I thought it would it be better to give it away for charity.

“Since being at Coventry City, I am aware of the great work David Busst and his team do over at Sky Blues in the Community and by raising money for them, I know it will go to a great cause.

“As a player, I believe it is important in helping the community you represent and I hope the auction can raise money to support the local projects the charity runs.”

Sky Blues in the Community have expanded their activities this year following a grant awarded to them by Children in Need to deliver the ‘On the Ball’ project in the city to eight to 18-year-olds, who may otherwise not get the chance to access sporting opportunities.

David Busst, Joint Head of Sky Blues in the Community said:  “It’s encouraging that today’s players and, in particular, Blair (Adams) are thinking about how they can help charities out and ultimately benefit the communities they serve. 

“The money raised will be used across a variety of projects and the four themes SBITC cover which is health, education, inclusion and sports participation.”
