Time is running out to get involved in Ballymena United’s latest fund-raising initiative.

The 12th Man is a subscription based fund whereby members will pay £10 per month into a bank account by standing order.

Fifty per cent of these funds are given directly to the parent club, Ballymena United FC, the other 50% distributed as cash prizes. The 50% winnings will be split into a first, second and third prize.

All members will be assigned a membership number. There will be draws throughout the year such as – season tickets and hospitality at the club’s Sky Blue Promotions corporate lunches.

There will be a £500 draw split between first, second and third prizes, drawn pitchside on Boxing Day.

Now is your chance to sign up to be in with a chance of being entered into the cash draw. You can download the Standing Order Form via the BUFC Club website at www.ballymenaunitedfc.com/12thman and post it to the address on the form.

Or you can come and see any one of the committee members in the Showgrounds Reception before, at half time and after the Crusaders game at home on December 13. Anyone wishing to fill their form in on any of those dates, need to bring their sort code and bank account number with them.

The closing date to be entered into the Boxing Day draw will be on December 20. Any more information can be found by the website link or via committee members on 07734591769.
