Gloucester Rugby supporters who signed up for the club's e-Diary last season were entered into a prize draw to receive a signed Lesley Vainikolo shirt. The lucky winner was revealed today.
Sandy Pattisson, a Gloucester Rugby supporter for 9 years, was today presented with his prize, a signed, official Gloucester Rugby playing shirt by the big man himself.
Lesley and Sandy met up at Kingsholm and the prize was handed over much to Sandy's delight:
"I was completely taken aback but very, very happy when I received the phone call saying that I'd won."
"The whole family follow Gloucester Rugby and my son, in particular, is a big Lesley fan so the shirt will be framed and will take pride of place in his bedroom."
"The e-diary has proved to be incredibly useful to us over the season, delivering Gloucester Rugby information straight to our PC. And, now it's delivered one of Lesley's shirts. It's a great result!"
The Gloucester Rugby e-diary™ syncs with all major diary programs, as well as Facebook, so Gloucester fans far and wide can easily stay in touch with their favourite team.
It is a fantastic way for supporters to have fixture and event information delivered direct to their desktops. TV scheduling these days means our fixtures are subject to change and the e-diary allows our supporters to have the most up to date information at their fingertips.
Each match entry opens to feature Gloucester graphics (MS Outlook only), match details, and 'Quick Links' direct to everything you will ever need, including Buy Tickets, Team News, Corporate Hospitality, Latest News, Shop for Merchandise and Kingsholm Conference and Banqueting direct from your desktop diary!
The e-diary is currently being revamped and will be re-launched shortly in good time for the 2009-10 season but you can register your interest right now by clicking HERE.
