WE are offering you the chance to own a unique piece of Argyle memorabilia – and help out ex-servicemen and women at the same time.
We are auctioning exclusive poppy shirts worn by the Pilgrims in our Emirates FA Cup first-round triumph against Stevenage on the eve of Remembrance Day.
All profits raised from the auction of the specially designed shirts will be donated to the Royal British Legion.
Among the 17 tops up for bids is match-winner Ruben Lameiras’s match-winning No.11 jersey.
The shirts feature details of the game, and the epitaph “We Will Remember Them” alongside a poppy motif, as well as an Emirates FA Cup flash and logo of the club’s first sleeve sponsor, Beaumont Drylining.
Anyone interested in bidding for a shirt should email firstname.lastname@example.org – putting ‘Poppy Bid’ in the subject field – and tell us:
- which player’s shirt you are bidding for;
- the amount of your bid;
- your contact details; and
- whether you would like the shirt signed on the reverse by the player, or left unsigned.
The auction closes at 5pm on Friday, December 7. Winning bids will be notified during the week beginning Monday, December 10.
Unsuccessful bidders may be contacted to see if they wish to be considered for a shirt that has not received any bids.
