14 November 2014

Championship Shirts Raise Money

Football League title sponsor Sky Bet’s #BidToRemember signed shirt auction has gone through the £70,000 barrier.
 
And there are plenty of Poppy Shirts - signed by the Championship players who wore them still to bid for.

Derby County midfielder Will Hughes’ match-worn shirt, from the 5-0 home victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers has attracted the top bid of £775, with over four days of the auction remaining.
 
Hughes’ teammate Johnny Russell, who bagged himself two goals in the game, is second place in the rankings (£660), while Millwall’s special edition camouflage shirt, signed by the whole Millwall squad is third (at £640).
 
All proceeds go directly to the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal, supporting the whole Armed Forces community, through welfare, comradeship and representation.
 
Sky Bet Head of Sponsorship Edwin Martin said: “We’re delighted with how much we’ve raised so far for The Royal British Legion.
“The generosity of Football League club fans was never in doubt, but they are surpassing themselves this year.
 
“We’ve had fantastic cooperation from the Sky Bet Championship clubs and we can’t wait to see what the final amount raised will be.”
 
There are shirts available to bid on now from each of the 24 Championship clubs, with subs’ shirts and replacement shirts to be listed in the coming days.
