We’ve unveiled the winner in our competition to design the Club’s Official Christmas Card for the 2016 festive season.
Last month we asked young supporters to have a go at designing this year’s offering – and no sooner did we make the request than we were inundated with dozens of entries!
Choosing the winning design was no easy task so we enlisted the help of boss Craig Hignett and his assistant Curtis Fleming to help us narrow down our search for the winner.
In the end, the management duo decided the winner for 2016 was eight-year-old Lucie Fletcher, whose Christmas Card showed H’Angus enjoying some festive football fun with Rudolph!
We had the card professionally manufactured by Atkinson Print and on Thursday afternoon we invited Lucie and her dad David down to the Club to see the finished product for the first time.
And we had an extra special surprise for her when she arrived because we’d arranged for skipper Billy Paynter and Josh Laurent to present her with a three-year Junior Poolies membership and two tickets for Saturday’s game.
“I was shocked and surprised when my dad told me I had won,” beamed Lucie.
“I loved getting to see the Christmas Card for the first time and Billy is my favourite player so to meet him and Josh was brilliant.”
A limited number of the Christmas Card will be available to buy from the Club's Ticket Office.
