Once again, the Forest Foundation are approaching their Annual Jackpot Draw in which one lucky winner will win 'A Grand a Month for 12 Months' - a massive £12,000!Ten young players recently took part in a chip-in challenge to determine the winner. Prior to the draw, ten finalists were randomly selected from the Foundation's lottery system and were each allocated an academy player to take part on their behalf.
Each player was given a numbered ball to represent their finalist, and the first player to chip their ball into the specifically-designed cylinder won the top prize of £12,000 for their finalist - it's a simple as that. The finalists, as well as the players who represented them, are as follows:
1. William McKee (Alex Iacovitti)
2. Tony Bilbie (Gerry McDonagh)
3. Liam Biggins (Joe Boyd)
4. Stephen Moon (Liam Adams)
5. Adrian Gwin (Ryan Yates)
6. Pamela Bennett (Virgil Gomis)
7. Steven Dixon (Toby Edser)
8. Malcolm Buckley (Ben Brereton)
9. Peter Radford (Tom Gamblen)
10. Thomas Sinclair (Jordan Wright)
The video of the draw will be shown at half-time during tonight's game and, once the winner has been announced, they will be presented with their cheque for £12,000 pitchside by a Forest star. For those members who were unable to attend tonight's match, we will release the video on the club's official social media channels shortly afterwards.
The Forest Foundation team would like to thank all their members for their continued support of the Nottingham Forest academy and wish our ten finalists the best of luck!
