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.
Speaking straight after the game, skipper Billy Twelvetrees told GRTV that losing at home to Bath, in front of a tremendous home support, was desperately disappointing and that the whole team were hurting in the dressing room.
Speaking to the local media this week, Richard Hibbard expressed his excitement ahead of the West Country derby and that there is an extra spring in the step of the Cherry and Whites ahead of the tough challenge.
With such a short turnaround between the two games, and Gloucester looking to reintegrate several players into the line-up after the Autumn international series, Tom Savage told GRTV that the Cherry and Whites will keep changes to a minimum for the European Rugby Challenge Cup game in Zebre on Saturday.
On a tough evening at Kingsholm, Gloucester could escape neither a suffocating Bath defence, nor the whistle of referee Greg Garner as six penalties and a penalty try paved the way to a 39-16 win for the visitors.
