Online raffles for players’ jerseys

Fife Flyers have relaunched a popular match night event to help raise funds for key organisers.

The ice hockey club is to stage two ‘Shirt Off The Back’ raffles online – the first to support the NHS in Fife, and the second for CHAS, its’ long-standing charity partner.

The competition is usually staged on match nights, with the winner getting the shirt straight off a player’s back.

Flyers had two jerseys available after the abrupt cancellation of the 2019-20 season and the loss of their last home games.

This week they are offering fans the chance to win the shirt worn by defenceman, James Isaacs, with all proceeds going to the NHS Fife Endowment Fund.

It runs until Friday when a winner will be drawn.

The second raffle – to be staged next week – will be in aid of CHAS, and will feature a jersey worn by defenceman, Sam Jones.

While I have your attention, I also have an important request to make of you. In order for us to continue to provide high quality and trusted local news on this free-to-read site, I am asking you - wherever possible and providing it is safe for you to do so - to also please purchase a copy of our newspapers; the Fife Free Press, Fife Herald, St Andrews Citizen, East Fife Mail and Glenrothes Gazette.

Inevitably falling advertising revenues will start to have an impact on local newspapers and the way we continue to work during this period of uncertainty.

The support of our readers has never been more important as we try to make sure that we keep you connected with your community during this time. But being your eyes and ears comes at a price. We need your support more than ever to buy our newspapers during this crisis.
