We announced earlier this month that as part of Rochdale AFC’s commitment to Prostate Cancer UK that we were auctioning off the Official Matchday Sponsor Package for our Sky Bet League Two fixture v Dagenham and Redbridge.
We can now reveal that the Rochdale Supporters Trust Football Team were the successful winners of the package, with a bid of £400. The money raised will go to the charity.
The lads from the Supporters Team will join us for the day on Saturday in one of our executive boxes, where they’ll enjoy a three course meal before the game. They’ll also get to choose and present the Man of the Match Award.
Since its formation in 1992, the Rochdale Supporters Trust Football Team has helped forge positive links with other fans and clubs around the UK. Originally set up playing infrequent friendly games, the club now forms part of the 70+ club strong Internet Football Association and manage to play at least 25 fixtures a season home and away, and often featuring prominently in the league table and cup competitions. This year they currently sit fourth in the league and are still involved in the National and regional North West Cup competitions.
The team is always on the look-out for the next generation of players, so if you are interested in playing, supporting or just want to keep up to date with how their season is going so far, you can follow them on Twitter - @RochdaleS_FC
