Exeter Chiefs lock, Lewis Stevenson becomes the first player to be sponsored by The Tribe. Exeter Chiefs fans club together to bid for sponsorship in a 'secret' auction held by the club for all of it's 49 strong squad. Bidding was strong and nerve racking until the very last minute. I'm off for a lie down in a dark room, just having confirmed to myself that I'd make a lousy poker player!!

The Tribe are proud to announce their sponsored player for 2008/09 is Lewis Stevenson with the following Sponsor members buying a 'share' in Lewis:-

Moorsman, Fisher, DevonAndy, CornishChief, Videoman, AlmightyVoice, BigBob, Squanto, MabolzaRichie, R183, RJM, ItsAThighThing, MissChief, ChiefsWatcher, BigSky, RM, Sponge62,
Orange Feather,  4EverChiefs, ChiefsFan85,  Spike_Exe, OggyMan, pint&apasty, anon (plus 'site' income)

The sponsor package includes the following benefits and I'll be arranging a meeting to sort out how we use these.

• Name or company logo in every home league match programme alongside your sponsored player.
• Name announced on the public address system every time  your sponsored player scores.
• The photograph of your sponsored player displayed at Sandy  Park Stadium along with your name or company logo.
• Signed shirt presented to you by your player at sponsors’  evening.
• Player available for two personal appearances a season such  as school fetes, golf days and dinners

Sponsor packages were offered through a 'silent' auction and I had to change player a couple of times to keep in budget.  This proved to be nerve racking (I'd never make a good poker player) as there was a possibility that we'd get outbid at the last minute and end up without a player. I'm glad to say this didn't happen and The Tribe will be looking forward to getting some publicity each time he scores.

So, how did I select the player?  Well, I went through several ideas before deciding to take the easy way out!?  I simply used The Tribe player of the year poll and worked with the final list
and I'm sure we have a great outcome.
