Consortium win Taylor shirt with huge donation

A consortium of 115 people have won the club’s blind auction for Glen Taylor’s signed 100 goals celebration shirt, raising a huge sum for the club in the process.

The auction was launched last week and closed at 5pm today with the final bid standing at an incredible £1,435.  This money will be put towards the club’s running costs whilst no football is taking place.

The consortium, dubbed “The Aisle Four Ultras” have asked that the shirt is displayed in The Neil Adams Sports Bar at The Brewery Field and the club will have a plaque created commemorating every consortium member.

Speaking on behalf of the consortium, supporter Niki Lawson provided the following statement:

“We had an idea in our WhatsApp group to get a few people together to bid for the shirt, but it then grew and we wanted to allow as many people to be a part of it as possible.

“I would like to thank everyone who contributed towards the bid, especially in such uncertain times, and we are delighted to donate the shirt back to the club so it can be displayed in The Neil Adams Sports Bar for all supporters to enjoy.

“We look forward to bidding again on a new shirt, once Glen bags his 200th goal!”
