Adi,

I can't remember who asked me. But are the CT5 Badges available just to buy with a donation?

No mate. Members only (maybe until the whole project is done and we sell what's left. (To be discussed)

btw I need your singing companions Saturday especially for the 74th minute mobile phone torches tribute.

Would be appreciated.

Just as a comparison, Port Vale took 10 years to get their statue of Roy Sproson sorted and it cost £96,000. Check it out next week when we go to Vale Park!

Our supporters, the committee, the club and everybody involved with the CT5 project should be cock-a-hoop with our efforts so far. Let's have a final push to get this over the line!

Just a thought, the answer of course can be yes.
£70 one off donation then you'd be a member for 7 months and you'd get a guaranteed invite on September 1st and a tribute dvd plus the other CT5 benefits :clap2:

That's absolutely great news Adi. Well done to you and all of your helpers.

By the way if there were any Aussie coins thrown in by mistake just send them to me. I'll put them towards my airfare over in August/September.

Those fantastic looking training tops worn by the players in their warm up pre match were supplied gratis by Chroma Sports.
Many thanks to Mick Vincent, Mark Wilson, Spike, Matt and the rest of the team for their time and generosity.
They did look great.

We did ask that they all be signed by individual players and sold at a later date.
After Saturday not sure that's still a good idea :lol:

Also quick reminder.

Last chance to guarantee an invite to the statue unveiling September 1st is midnight today.
We have been pleased with the extra numbers who have joined this week but we can accept many more.

The Chris Turner Statue Committee would like to sincerely thank the players of The POSH who requested Adi Mowles, Chairman of the fund to pop up to the training ground.
There he received a very generous donation that the first team players had collected.
Jack Baldwin and Michael Smith representing the players explained that they were fully aware of the love held for Chris by all supporters and were greatly impressed by the amount collected by the fans for the fund last Saturday.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E7fgb7E ... e=youtu.be

The fund currently stands at just over £70,000 and the unveiling day will be on Friday September 1st.

And I like the idea of training tops being sold off too so looking out for that.

If they ever make a statue for Barry Fry, it may well cost 50% more because of his stomach. :)
