Half-season ticket giveaway

13 December 2018

An America-based Notts County supporter has kindly donated an 18-21 half-season ticket for the club to pass on to a supporter.

66-year-old David Bignall lives just south of Phoenix, Arizona, and keeps close tabs on the goings on at Meadow Lane following his move Stateside in 1991.

Now he has decided to donate a half-season ticket to allow someone to enjoy the Magpies’ home matches in the way he did when he was younger.

“Young fans are the future of our fanbase,” said David.

“My father worked at the dairy near Meadow Lane and he used to bring me to games and I loved it – I want someone else to experience this.

“If you know someone aged 18-21 who you feel is deserving of a half-season ticket, email in your nominations and I’ll pick a winner – they can watch the rest of this campaign’s home games on me!”

To nominate a supporter aged between 18-21, click below and get your entries in by 6.30pm today.

David held a season ticket before moving to the other side of the Atlantic and now uses iFollow to watch matches live – getting up early to view them as kick-off is 8am his time!

“It’s such a great help as it makes me feel close to the team again and I’m able to see the excellent work that Chairman Alan Hardy has done,” he said.

David came back to Meadow Lane last season and brought his wife Laurie to her first ever fixture.

He said: “We watched the Morecambe game in September when we won 2-0 and she had a blast – so did I as I’d not been back in 20 years!

“While living in the USA I have coached kids, including my son's team, and have tried to get them to call it football, not soccer.

“My son Joe is going to university in Dublin and he loves football – I might have brainwashed him into that!”

The club would like to thank David for this tremendous gesture.
