It's that time of year again, and we need to decide whether and if so who we will be sponsoring for 2019 season.

To recap, in 2018 we sponsored
Brandon Pickersgill (2nd year)
Anesu Mudoti and Nehemiah Mensah from the juniors.

Our aim has usually been to try to sponsor up-and-coming, fringe and young players, on the basis that they may not get sponsorship, although we have on occasions departed from that, but in general.

The blurb from the club reads:

**************************************************************************
2019 Sponsorship package includes;
• Naming rights on our website next to your sponsored player’s profile (weblink to your website).
• Exclusive invitation to the "Evening with the Players" event.
• 4 x Tickets to Trevor Foster after the match on Match Day,
• PA announcements on match day (team news / points scored).
• Naming rights of your sponsored player on Bulls TV, Social Media and Web profile stories.
• First refusal on sponsorship for the following season
• Players actual playing shirt.
• VIP access to a training session.
• Discount to upgrade Season Ticket into Trevor Foster / Legend Suite (eg £50 off ticket price for up to 2 guests)

As demand is high, we would appreciate if you could advise asap if you are wishing to renew your sponsorship for the 2019 season, we will reserve your player until Friday 9th November.
******************************************************************************

Brandon is now an established first teamer. As such, his sponsorship will this year be £1200
Anesu Mudoti is £300
Nehemiah Mensah is £180

On THIS thread, can I have sponsors' views on who we should look to sponsor, and why.
Sponsoring just Brandon would require a whopping 48 names down so I don't think that would be doable for us (though you never know) but they won't have any bother now getting a sponsor for him.

On the OTHER thread, Please copy and paste the SPONSOR LIST by adding your name/s to it. We'll keep it to £25 a member. Of course, you can have as many £25 for your friends, family and pets as well, if you are taking one.

The Bulls want to know by 9th November if we are renewing any of them and we have first dibs, after that, they go on general release.

I also thought it might be nice to fix up an informal meet with this year's sponsored players and you luvverly RAB sponsors, maybe an afternoon or evening meet at a Nandos or Wetherspoons or something, just to mutually backslap, If you would be interested in asking the club to fix up a date pretty soon then please state on THIS thread plus your suggestions for a venue. Bearing in mind junior players age and bedtimes :)

I agree that it's probably better if we let someone else sponsor Brandon and we follow the same plan as before where we pick a promising lad on the fringes of the first team and a couple from the 19s and 16s.

I'd go for either Matty Storton, Rowan Milnes or Olly Wilson. They're homegrown players like Brandon and Ethan were. They're on the fringes of breaking through like Brandon and Ethan were. They've got huge potential like Brandon and Ethan.

As for an informal meet if the Fighting Cock and the Punjab aren't quite suitable I'm quite happy to smash a Nando's (I believe they do a few veggie options for tigertot).

Agree with Bullseye. Whoever is sposnsored by us is getting themselves a lucky omen as the young lads we've sponsored have gone on to great things. Ethan Ryan, Brandon Pickersgill. RAB certaintly has a good eye.

Can I be the second to agree with Bullseye?

I feel the pattern so far has been correct. The club will easily get commercial sponsors for regular first team players whilst younger players might be glad to have a sponsor.

Perhaps a strategy would be to sponsor one player who is likely to play in a decent number of games at first team level ( Storton?). Then a younger player who has not yet appeared coming through from the Under 16's to the Under 19's . And if we have enough sponsors, a third young player who is named in the first team squad but has yet to make his debut.

I think the way it works is that all 2018 sponsors have first option on sponsoring that player in 2019. May have to wait and see if anyone isn't going to renew their sponsorship first before deciding on another player.

OK this is straightforward, as unfortunately we have comparatively little interest this year I will just responsor the 2 existing young lads Anesu Mudoti and Nehemiah Mensah which spends £480. That leaves a small balance and I will enquire which of the juniors we can look at for another £180. That's on the basis we will still get a couple of stragglers to make up another £180. If we can get a package of 3 with the existing money then I'll do that.

Disappointing. Obviously some people will simply be unable to afford it, but I wonder if there are any other reasons? The club have shown ambition in retaining and recruiting players and you would have thought committed fans (which presumably most members of this group are), would want to support that.

Sounds like a plan FA.

OK as there is no more interest then we will just sponsor
Anesu Mudoti and Nehemiah Mensah
for a further year.

The total works out at £20 each so please either make payments via PayPal to http://paypal.me/boiledvark

or if you want to pay cash to Tracey Erby at the club then quote RedAmberandBlack sponsorship
AND PM me so I know you've paid and can mark you off as paid.
