Trophy Tour fun on the way to Southend
The countdown to the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Final will be cranked up next week when an action-packed Trophy Tour is staged in Southend ahead of the Wembley spectacle.
The Johnstone’s Paint Trophy team will take to the road to capture all the excitement surrounding Southend United and Crewe Alexandra ahead of their big day on Sunday, April 7.
Fans will have the chance to meet players and other representatives from their clubs, as well as having pictures taken with the coveted Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.
Competition giveaways aplenty will be staged – with tickets for the Final amongst the prizes up for grabs – while supporters will also have the opportunity to take part in a special National Anthem singing video, which will feature on the official Johnstone’s Paint Trophy YouTube channel.
The first event will be staged in Southend on Monday, March 25 at the Victoria Shopping Centre from 2pm-5pm, with two members of the Southend squad attending.
On Tuesday, March 26, the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy team will make an early appearance on the Breakfast Show on Southend Radio from 8am, before heading to Southend Central Station for a special announcement at 2.30pm.
The fun then moves to the Johnstone’s Decorating Centre in Bentalls Close, where two players will be in attendance, which will be staged between 4pm and 7pm.
“It promises to be a great two days and I’m sure the fans will be out in force in Southend ahead of their first appearance in a Wembley Final,” said Johnstone’s Paint Brand and Sponsorship Manager Ben Wilde.
“The Johnstone’s Paint Trophy has always placed a very strong emphasis on engaging with fans, and what better way than hitting the road and meeting up with the supporters of the clubs who have done brilliantly to reach Wembley.
“These events will add to the excitement around the clubs and ensure Wembley fever continues to build. It would be great to see as many fans as possible come and join the fun.”
The Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Tour will then head to Crewe on Wednesday, March 27 and Thursday, March 28.
