Good Evening Canvey Island fans, my name is Mark.A.Bundock, Secretary of BTFC Supporters Club, aka Mark-Sweden flag on BTFC website. (As I go to away games with a Sweden flag)
On January 3rd 2004, we at the Supporters Club are doing a Shoot for a meal, what happens is a BRAINTREE TN Supporter will be up against a CANVEY ISLAND Supporter.
This will be done on the pitch at Half Time in front of the fans.
(We did this V Hornchurch and both sets of supporters got behind their representative and it was great fun. For the record 18 Year Old Sam Bass of Btfc beat 15 Year old Mark Hanking of Hornchurch 3.1)
(and we did it V Hitchin Town when BTFC Supporter Richard Jackson lost 0.1 to Ben Christmas of Hitchin
ALSO v Bognor Regis Mark Reilly BTFC won 2.1 V James Girling of Bognor and Boxing day our Martin Lomax – Sid lost 3.0 to Heybridge’s Gary Perkins )
(So of the four events Braintree have won 2 and lost 2)
You will get 3 goes, this will be done alternatively. Dribble round 3 cones and shoot past a keeper. The winner is the one who scores the most goals, in the quickest time. The prize is a meal for two, a Sunday carvery at Mr H, which was Formerly, The Four Seasons.
WHAT WE WOULD REQUIRE from any volunteer.
1. They represent their Club in a CANVEY ISLAND replica shirt.
2. They wear a pair of trainers, no football boots please, as the grounds man would not permit this.
(Please do not put forward a reserve team / fringe player as this will detract from the fun element of this)
If you are interested, we need to know as soon as possible, by New Years Day if possible as we will be sending a supporters club column to the Match Prog. Editor and we will mention both of the Supporters names and ages plus we also need to let the P.A person know for their commentary.
IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO ENTER PLEASE TELEPHONE: 07739847552.
We look forward to hearing from you and hope you will come to Cressing Road on Jan 3rd 2004.
For more information please read the BTFC (Unofficial) message board www.braintreetfc.co.uk/
We will also be making a members draw, which unfortunately is only for BTFC members.
Plus our Match day Mascot this is being run by Braintree Town Supporters Club and this will all add to the day’s entertainment off the pitch.
Thank you, Mark.
