May I have your attention please….Player News!

So after last nights defeat in the SSC. I thought you would all need to have those smiles put back on your faces 🙂 , so what better way to bring back those grins, by turning those frowns upside down, by bringing you a little bit of player news/updates.

So we have been putting ourselves together in groups to form our own Syndicates for the Srikers are Key Initiative. So let’s give you a little low down on this scheme, before we show what our hard earned pennies are bringing forth to the turf of Gander Green Lane.

Stikers are Key.

We have all enjoyed these past five seasons. The Manager has identified that 2 major signings are required to continue improving. Strikers!”

So basically the scheme is this, we put in £40 large into the club on a monthly basis. There will be a board of 50 numbers up in the bar ( our syndicate name yet to come to fruitation, but I reckon we’ll go with Gandermonium ) A safe will be put along the side the numbers, and a minumum of £200 tokens placed inside the safe at EVERY home league game. Five keys will be placed on top of the safe, but only one will reveal the reddies, if of course your number gets drawn and you get the chance to pick one of the winning keys!

If you want some more detailed info on this scheme, then have a look at the pic below!

So in a nut shell, thats the scheme! Lets have a look and see what this is bringing us then shall we?

First up we have…..
