The Coventry City Leamington and Warwick Supporters Club will be supplying boots to five members of the Sky Blues squad this season – and raffling off the boots to help raise money for the Supporters Club.
Captain Michael Doyle, Midfielders Tony Andreu, Jordan Shipley and Kyle Finn, and Striker Max Biamou have been presented their boots for the season by the Supporters Club, which is celebrating its first anniversary.
The boots, which will be worn during matches by the City stars, will then be signed by the players and given back to the Supporters Club to raffle at their regular meetings. The money raised will be used by the Supporters Club to continue their support of Mark Robins and the team this season.
Monies raised at meetings and via away travel is used to support the LWCCFC #BackTheLads campaign - this includes a commitment of at least £3000 of player/match sponsorship for the 2018/19 season – and fits in the with the club’s #RiseTogether mantra.
The Supporters Club now has over 300 members, and their sole aim is to support Mark Robins and the players. The Supporters Club also votes for a Player of the Month, presenting the commemorative award to each monthly recipient.
While developing closer links with staff at the club, the Leamington and Warwick Supporters Club have also been able to offer services to fans based in Leamington, Warwick and surrounding areas such as away travel and tickets. They also plan to offer travel to home games in the near future too.
This is as well as regular meetings, where supporters can meet with members of the Sky Blues squad in a social environment, and win worn match shirts and boots, executive box seats and other prizes.
Meetings usually take place every six weeks.
The next meeting is this Thursday 23rd August at the St. Patrick's Irish Club, Riverside Walk, Adelaide Road, Leamington Spa, CV32 5AH – with two Sky Blues players plus the Play-Off Trophy set to appear.
The meeting is for members only - but you can join for the 2018/19 season on the night for £10. There will be a complimentary buffet plus a raffle with top CCFC prizes.
