St Mirren Memorabilia Auction (Part 1) – Open!

As we reported last week, several of the players have signed and donated their boots to the Youth Development Programme and you now have a chance of picking up what is sure to be a treasured item in our first of three blocks of online auctions.

Among the boots are the ones worn by Steven Thompson when he scored the injury time equaliser against Rangers at Ibrox last October and – as if that wasn’t good enough – we also have the boots that Paul McGowan wore when he scored the winning goal against Rangers on Christmas Eve.

David van Zanten, Nigel Hasselbaink, Craig Samson, Gary Teale and Graham Carey have also kindly signed and donated boots for auction, and we also have a 2011-2012 home shirt signed by the squad.

All proceeds from the auction will go towards the Youth Development Programme to help develop and nurture the St Mirren players of the future.
