Midnight deadline for poppy shirt bids

10 December 2013

Last chance to get unique home shirt

Time is running out for supporters to get their hands on the special Shrewsbury Town shirts worn by the club's players against Sheffield United last month in support of the Royal British Legion's Poppy Appeal.

The auction for the shirts closes as midnight and so far more than £1,500 has been pledged.

"Bids range from £42 up to £200," said Martin James, head of community development at Shrewsbury Town. "Over 80 bids have been made and each bidder has been kept informed of the progress of their bid. 

"There's still plenty of time to bid for a specific shirt or pitch an amount that may win any shirt.

"The Royal British Legion are extremely grateful and pleased with the response from the supporters to this initiative." 
  
The shirts feature the distinctive poppy motif and each has a minimum reserve of £25.  
 
These special shirts would make an ideal Christmas present for Shrewsbury Town supporters while at the same time supporting an excellent cause. 
 
The players whose signed shirts are available are Chris Weale, Joe Jacobson, Tamika Mkandawire, Connor Goldson, Dave Winfield, Ryan Woods, Adam Reach, Nicky Wroe, Aaron Wildig, Liam McAlinden, Tom Bradshaw, Luke Summerfield, Jon Taylor, Darren Jones, Dave McAllister and Paul Parry.
 
Submit your bids with details of whose shirt you would like to Martin James at the Greenhous Meadow. He can be contacted via email at martin.james@shrewsburytown.co.uk and by phoning (01743) 289177 extension 258.
 
Sealed bids for Martin's attention can also be dropped off at reception.
