Recent matches at the Banks’s Stadium have seen the return of the half-time Crossbar Challenge, where four fans have a chance to win a 2014/15 season ticket simply by hitting the crossbar with a ball kicked from the edge of the D.
We’ve had numerous near misses, some very wide misses, plenty of goals and one winner so far. What we haven’t had is any female contestants – and I know that the Saddlers have plenty of female supporters.
If you’d like to take part in the Crossbar Challenge and compete for one of next year’s season tickets, send me an email with your contact details and I’ll randomly select contestants to take part. Alternatively, if we don’t have enough contestants for a particular match you’ll find me wandering around the perimeter of the pitch around 25 minutes before kick-off looking for willing volunteers.
You don’t have to be female to take part: men are still more than welcome. But whether you’re male or female, make sure you’re wearing suitable footwear – stilettos won’t help you reach the crossbar!
We currently plan to run the competition at every one of our remaining home fixtures, so if you can’t make this Saturday’s match against Bristol City let me know in your email when you will be there.
And good luck to everybody taking part.
