Support the Poppy Appeal, win a sign Samu Saiz Shirt.

Per the club’s website:

[Y]ou can get your hands on a Samuel Saiz match worn Poppy shirt, which has been made available for auction.

Samu has also signed the shirt and all proceeds generated from the auction will go The Military v Cancer.

Winning a signed Samu Saiz shirt in an auction is a big enough deal, but all the proceeds going to charity? Even better.
