Season ticket holder Sue Gladwin has been named MK Dons’ Top Recruiter for 2013/14.
Sue was one of three supporters to sign up two new season ticket holders, her 81-year-old mother and 86-year-old father, over the summer but after successfully having her name drawn in a recent ballot, she has today been crowned the Club’s Top Recruiter.
A season ticket holder in the Standard Corner, Sue visited stadiummk to pose for a photo pitchside and will return at a later date to have lunch with manager Karl Robinson as well as to take up her invitation to joining the Chairman in the Directors’ Box for a first team match of her choice.
Speaking to mkdons.com Sue, who has had a season ticket at stadiummk since 2007/08, said: “My parents came quite a lot last year and really enjoyed it so they decided a season ticket was the next logical step.
"My dad is 86 and my mum is 81 so I think that shows how family-orientated the Football Club is. We sit in the East Wing and my parents sit just behind us along with my brother-in-law and my niece and nephew. It’s a big day out for all the family; we really enjoy it.
“I’m quite passionate about supporting local football; I think it is fantastic that we have a professional football club in Milton Keynes. I went to my first game because my daughter was a cheerleader and it was the first-ever game at the Hockey Stadium, I went just to watch that to be honest but I soon got hooked.
“I was very excited when I got the letter but also a little bit embarrassed and overwhelmed! I’m really looking forward to having lunch with Karl Robinson, but I’m quite nervous as well. I want to applaud him, I think he has done such a fantastic job with a limited budget and his loyalty to the Club is quite emotional sometimes.”
Also, as part of her fantastic package, Sue will have her name on the back of every home matchday programme this season, hold a position on the Player Profiles page of the official website and a home shirt with ‘Alli 14’ on the back.
Sue added: “I struggled when I started to think about who my favourite player was. Dele Alli is a local lad, he’s worked hard and he’s come through the Academy and I think it’s a good story. He’s done so well when he’s played for the first team and I think it’s fantastic. I hope he does go on to better things one day, but not too soon.”
MK Dons would like to thank all supporters who took part and signed up season ticket holders this season, helping us once again surpass the 5,200-mark.
