GOOD FRIDAY: Tesco step in to help

16 April 2014

Egg-citing donation from local superstore

A massive thank you goes to those lovely people at our local Rosehill Tesco Superstore, in particular store manager Phil Pearson, for helping us to make our fun-packed Good Friday Easter Egg-stravaganza even more egg-stra special and egg-citing with the donation of a whopping 100 chocolate Easter Eggs for the day!

The eggs, handed to director Norman Steel on Monday, will be used as prizes and as part of our Easter Egg themed treasure hunt as we build up to the big match 3pm kick off with competitions and activities on our club training pitch.

“We’d like to thank Tesco for what is a fantastic gesture,” assistant managing director Suzanne Kidd said. “It’s great to have another big brand name wanting to get involved with the club on our community activities and particularly when it’s our local superstore. I’m sure everyone will do their best to win one of the eggs at one of our activities on Friday. 

"This is another chance for the fans to come along and meet us, and have some fun, and we're looking forward to seeing everyone ahead of what is another big game.”

A full list of activities is as follows:

+ Activities start at 12.30pm
+ Fun free to enter coaching sessions with the Community Sports Trust
+ CUFC and Virgin Trains penalty shoot-out inflatable challenge
+ An Easter egg themed treasure hunt
+ Face painting
+ Players in attendance for photographs and autographs
+ Come and meet OLGA the Fox!
+ Season Ticket holder Easter prize draw - held at 2.30pm
+ CUFC Ladies football team skills sessions
+ Egg and spoon race to be held at half time during the game
+ LOADS of prizes and giveaways

Please note - families can enjoy a discount of £1 per person on tickets purchased within our family ticket price packages for the big game on the day – with no match day increase on any of our family ticket prices!
