A lucky Blues fan is heading stateside this week to join the first team squad after winning the ultimate Everton prize.
Lifelong Blue Alan Denton will jet out to Miami this weekend to kick-start the trip of a lifetime, where he will watch his side train, play in the glamorous International Champions Cup and even take up the chance to meet the likes of Phil Jagielka, Marouane Fellaini and Tim Howard.
Alan scooped the prize after pre-ordering the brand new 2013/14 home shirt earlier this month. Every supporter who pre-ordered the 2013/14 home shirt was automatically entered into the prize draw and Alan was overwhelmed when he was randomly selected as the winner.
“What a shock! Not only will I meet the players - my heroes – but I get VIP tickets to watch them in action in Miami, of all places. What a fantastic prize. I am so excited and really can't believe it,” said Alan.
“The coming season is going to be so exciting with so many managerial changes in the Premier League, not least at Everton. Roberto Martinez is the man for the job. He always plays attractive open football and with the addition of strikers we can score goals.
"I can’t wait to see us play, first in Miami and once the season gets underway in August. We will keep the faith 'cause it's in our DNA.”
The new Everton home kit is now available to buy online at evertondirect.com or in store at Everton One or Everton Two.
Another incredible prize will be up for grabs when the 2013/14 away kit is revealed next week. Keep checking evertonfc.com for more information.
