*BS*A SIGNED ENGLAND U-21 shirt from 2004 is up for auction in aid of Dover Athletic’s Centre Spot 2008 Appeal.*BF*
Former Dover, Gillingham and England U-21s boss Peter Taylor donated the item to the club, which hopes to raise a good sum to go towards the project to build a new clubhouse facility.
Taylor acquired the original shirt during his time as manager of the England U-21 team and the item was signed by the squad following a match against Wales in 2004.
The shirt was signed by the following squad:
England: Carson; Johnson (Taylor, 85), Hunt, Davenport, Harding; Pennant (Whittingham, 75), Milner, O’Neil, Downing; Cole (Bent, 19), Stead.
Subs not used: Kilgallon, Lonergan, Baines, Hinshelwood.
*Ppic1*Paul Harrison, who is organising the auction, told doverathletic.com: “Jim and Sally Parmenter, who previously bought the shirt at the Peter Taylor Sportsman’s Evening, have generously donated it back to DAFC to be auctioned.
“Bids can be made via my mobile 07771 846766, email: firstname.lastname@example.org or via the unofficial fans forum – see the thread at the top of the General Discussion forum.”
The closing date for bids will be Easter Bank Holiday Monday March 24th at 4.45 after the Ashford game at SeaFrance Crabble.
The club’s Youth Section is also organising a Fun Run at Crabble on Easter Bank Holiday Monday, their contribution towards the Centre Spot Appeal fundraising.
