Help sponsor a York City player’s shirt

By Ian Tyssen

TOOAB Player Sponsorship 2017/18

It’s that time of year when we join together to sponsor York City players for the coming season. All in the name of There’s Only One Arthur Bottom.

Last season, at a total cost of £1000, we sponsored five players’ shirts. These signed shirts will very soon be won by members of the sponsorship group.

We have already received some early pledges towards the cost of sponsoring players for the 2017/18 season. In order to cover the cost of sponsoring the players, we need the support of existing and new members for our sponsorship consortium.

To contribute, either send a cheque, payable to Ian Tyssen, to Ian Tyssen, 84 Keble Park North, Bishopthorpe, York, YO23 2SX or make a payment to ian.tyssen@hotmail.com by PayPal. If paying by PayPal, please try to avoid fees!

Cash contributions can also be made at either of the two remaining home pre season friendlies – visit me at the desk in the Club Shop, where I will be managing the 50/50 Cash Draw.

Alternatively, you can pay by bank transfer. Please contact me for the bank account number and sort code.

The minimum payable for entry to the sponsorship group is £10 but there is no maximum. The bigger the contribution, the more entries you will have in the end of season prize draw to win the signed shirts.

Please make your contributions as soon as possible, as we will then be able to let the football club know how many players we will be sponsoring.

This season, there is also the opportunity of having a photo with the sponsored player. It is my hope that some of our contributors, who are able to attend a photo shoot, will win this honour in a separate prize draw. So, when making a payment to our sponsorship fund, please indicate whether you would like to have the chance of winning a photo with the player. Maybe we can get the photo signed as well.
