Blaze Bonus Ball Lotto Draw

Donegal’s own Seamus Coleman (Everton FC & Captain of the Republic of Ireland Senior Men’s Soccer Team) has kindly gifted the Blaze Girls with a signed and worn Everton jersey (No. 23) which Seamus Coleman himself wore, on Saturday, March 10th 2018 in a 2 – 0 victory over Brighton at Goodison Park. Seamus is renowned for his honest hardworking style of play, possesses great leadership qualities and leads by example both on and off the pitch. He has recently returned from injury and is a big supporter of young people’s participation in sport.

How to be in with a chance to win this great prize:

Once all 47 balls are purchased, the draw will take place based on the forthcoming National Lotto Draw and the winner of the Everton Jersey (signed and worn by Seamus Coleman) will be the lucky purchaser of the Bonus Ball. It is that simple!!!
