“Bid for a piece of Liverpool memorabilia to aid in the search for Steven Cook
To help raise funds which will allow the Cook family to continue their search for Steve over in Crete, we are delighted to announce that we will be holding an auction of Liverpool and football memorabilia at the Oakfield pub, after the last home game against Aston Villa of the season on 29th April.
Items available include a Champions League final programme, Champions League final ticket, biographies on Rafael Benítez, match programmes and LFC magazines all signed by Liverpool manager Rafa Benítez; a Tranmere Rovers shirt signed by John Aldridge; a pair of boxing gloves as worn by Naseem Hamed; signed LFC footballs from the 2001 and 2006 squads; signed portrait of Sean Long from St Helens Saints plus other Saints items; some signed books from Tony award-winning, and Oscar nominated Liverpudlian writer Willy Russell; an 95/96 Collymore LFC shirt signed by the team plus many other bits of memorabilia.
Many other items are being added day by day some of which will only be available to those attending on the night.
For those fans unable to attend the function, you can view the items on http://teveookuctionakie29thpril2006.fotopic.net/ – each item has its own unique code starting with SMC_nnn. You can reserve a bid by emailing email@example.com.
Please ensure you enter the correct code and the maximum amount you are willing to pay for that item, and how you wish to pay. You must also ensure that you have entered your full name and postal address and a contact number.
