Exciting News For Young PNE Fans

25 June 2013

The Club are launching an exciting new membership scheme for the next generation of Lilywhites.

The junior supporters scheme, previously the YNEs, is being rebranded and relaunched as the Junior Whites with three new packages available for under 16s to sign up to.

The packages available are to be known as the Junior Whites Basic, Junior Whites VIP and Whites For Life. 

The Junior Whites packages are for children aged between eight and 12-years-old; the basic package is just £5 for the season and the VIP package is £20. 

The basic membership will provide the member with benefits such as a personal birthday and Christmas card signed by the squad, a membership card and certificate and the chance to be an away mascot for free at selected away games, amongst other things.

There is also a chance to meet the players at various Junior White events and invitations to Christmas and end of season parties. 

However, with the VIP package, you can have all these benefits and much more. 

Each new member will get a personal letter from the manager Simon Grayson to welcome them to the club as well as a membership card and certificate of membership.

There is also priority booking on lots of events such as soccer schools, which also includes a 10% discount and priority on Junior Whites away trips, promotions and events. 

If that is still not enough, the younger fans will have more access to the players than any other North End fan with a chance to watch a first team training session, which will be exclusive to Junior Whites members as well as chances to see the players at some Junior Whites events.

Junior Whites will also have exclusive access to the Junior Whites Matchday Room, in the Alan Kelly Town End. This has an additional fee of £7 for VIP members or £8 for members of the Basic package per fixture which includes their match ticket.

Activities will be provided from 12.30pm on matchdays to keep the young fans entertained until kick-off. This room is only available for afternoon kick-offs.

It is asked that you pre-book any children into this room prior to the match. This can be done by contacting the community department by phone on 01772 693318 or by email - community@pne.com. 

Birthdays will be celebrated for each child too, through a birthday announcement on the big screen at the game nearest their big day and also on the new Junior Whites website, set to launch before the start of the season. They will also receive a birthday card signed by all the squad! 

There is also a ‘Cap’ scheme available for Junior Whites that allows you to earn a cap just like PNE stars do when they play for their country.

Every time you attend a Junior White activity, whether it is on a matchday or other selected events, you will earn a cap, and there will be a chart in the Junior Whites Matchday Room that will allow you to see your progress.

Incentives will be provided for reaching certain milestones and you will be able to see if you can catch up with some PNE legends or just try to beat your friends! 
 
If you are over 12 do not worry, the Whites For Life membership allows fans between the ages of 13 and 16 to be a member for the season for just £10. 

This package provides you with a membership card, certificate and a personal welcome letter from the gaffer, as well as a chance to meet the squad at various events, as well as priority booking on away trips via an official PNE coach. 

The highlight of this package though, is the Whites For Life Matchday Room which is dedicated to members only. 

The room will be open from 12.30pm for Saturday games and 5:30pm for evening matches, and will be available for Whites For Life members, who will have to show their membership card before entering the room. 

The room will provide a unique experience for the young teenage fans who will be able to chat and hang out with friends and other PNE fans in a sociable environment as well as make the most of the activities available. 

Sky Sports News and any live Sky matches will be on the TVs in the room so you can make the most of all the football before you watch the Lilywhites take to the pitch. 

And there’s more… there will also be refreshments available in the room so you can enjoy your lunch with your mates, both old and new, or just play on the games consoles provided and challenge each other to a game of FIFA. 

There may also be an opportunity to meet the players who might pop in before the game so you can wish them luck and maybe even give them a few tips for the match!

If you are interested in any of these packages, a membership form will be available soon, so in the meantime please email your details or any queries to community@pne.com.
