Young Stoke City supporter wins squad number 150...

ELEVEN-year-old Joshua Nixon has been chosen as the lucky winner of the #win150 competition . . . and in the process becomes the Club’s seventh signing of the summer.

The youngster follows the likes of big money deadline day arrivals Charlie Adam and Steven N’Zonzi through the doors at the Britannia Stadium.

To commemorate the Club’s 150th anniversary, the Potters automatically placed the name of any supporter who purchased the 2012/13 home shirt in a draw to become the Club’s number 150 for this celebratory campaign.

The draw, which was made on transfer deadline day by Tony Pulis, included almost 4,000 Stoke City supporters, however, it was Joshua whose name was pulled out of the hat by the City boss.

The youngster will now have the honour of being included in the 2012/13 squad-list, which will appear in the Matchday Magazine.

Other benefits he has won, include:

Head and shoulders image on squad profile on the website
Training ground tour
Signed framed shirt
Mascot experience
As well as much, much more!

Joshua will pay what will be a memorable visit to the Clayton Wood Training Ground this week, where he will be interviewed by the Club’s Media team, as well as posing for his official headshot.

Supporters are reminded that they can still purchase home and away shirts for the 2012-13 season online at or by contacting the Mail Order line on 01782 826419.

Alternatively, they can be bought in person from the Britannia Stadium Superstore or the Club Stores in the Potteries Shopping Centre and the Roebuck Centre in Newcastle-under-Lyme.
