The final push: Wythenshawe Amateurs chairman calls for fans to vote for ‘Super Grant’ to fund new home for club

Wythenshawe Amateurs are urging fans to support their bid for a new home as their Budweiser ‘Super Grant’ campaign comes to the final stages.

Throughout the campaign the club has received staunch support from its two neighbouring giants, Manchester City and Manchester United.

Club chairman Basil Kabbani has thanked everyone involved in their bid, and has urged supporters to come out and vote for the club as the campaign enters its final week.

“We are now into the final days of our campaign to win £100,000 as part of the Budweiser Futures programme and we are making one last push to get the votes needed to help us cross the finishing line first,” he said.

The club are leaving no stone unturned in their attempt to canvass votes.

Volunteers from the club have handed out leaflets at Manchester Airport and have been given permission to have a stand at Wythenshawe Hospital this week.

“Wythenshawe Hospital is also backing our efforts and management has kindly given us permission to have a stand at the hospital this week, and allowed us to hand out leaflets to staff and visitors,” said Mr Kabbani.

“Volunteers from the club handed out leaflets at Manchester Airport and also outside the Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium before the Premier League fixture against Stoke.

“Our video was shown at half-time along with a photograph of City star Fernandinho wearing a campaign t-shirt.

“Manchester United have also continued with their support and we have been featured several times on MUTV, and will feature again this week.”

Voting for the competition finishes on Friday and the club will have to wait anxiously for a few weeks before they can find out whether or not their campaign has been successful.
