We’re pleased to announce that the winner of the ‘win a trip to Italy’ competition is Mark Roberts.
As you may remember, at the end of last year, the Club invited supporters to vote for their favourite home and away kit designs. Everyone who voted was entered into a competition to win the trip. Thanks to everyone who got involved!
Mark’s name was picked at random by Brian Barry-Murphy from nearly 400 entries, and has been contacted with the exciting news!
He and a guest will be the first to feast their eyes on Dale’s 2019/20 kits, when they fly out to Italy later in the season to visit the home of Errea in Parma. They’ll be given a tour of the facility and will see the kits on the production line.
Supporters are reminded that this year’s kit launch will take place on Saturday 15th June, with the kits set to be revealed to fans on the day. There will be plenty going on throughout the day at the Crown Oil Arena, so get the date in your diary!
We’re pleased to announce that the kit launch coincides with Josh Fest, a Family Fun Day organised in memory of our number 55, Joshua McCormack. The fundraising event, now in its third year, is being held at the Crown Oil Arena.
There will be live bands throughout the afternoon in the Ratcliffe Bars, fairground rides, food, stalls, raffles and prizes to be won. Money raised from the Josh Fest event will go to three charities, as chosen by Josh’s family: Friends of Rosie, Be Brave Bears and Derian House.
Further details will be announced in due course.
We hope you can join us!
