PRE-SEASON shirts will be going under the hammer during Thursday evening’s fan event in aid of Derian House Children’s Hospice & Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.
The blue shirts, each emblazoned with MDC Autos, were sponsored by owner Matthew Crook, who came up with the idea.
We are eagerly awaiting this Saturday and the start of our adventure in the Vanarama National League. As a business, we were thrilled to help the club’s preparations by sponsoring the two pre-season kits. The purple will be donated back to the development team, but the blue will be up for grabs on Thursday.
We want to raise as much money as possible for two local charities that are close to our hearts and we also have a one off purple shirt which has been signed by the players and framed, which will again be sold for charity and the highest offer will take it. I look forward to seeing loads of fans in the social club after training and thank you in advance for helping us raise money for these incredible organisations – Matthew Crook
How do I bid?
Bring cash on Thursday evening and be ready to bid as manager Jamie Vermiglio leads the auction. Any unsold shirts will be available to purchase after the game on Saturday in the social club. Don’t miss out on the chance to secure an extra special birthday or Christmas present for a Magpies fan – or even treat yourself to one!
