Blades Fan Nets Day Out With Sean

11 August 2003

At Saturday's first match, a lifelong United fan was announced the winner of
a fantastic VIP day with Sean Bean, courtesy of Yorkshire Building Society.
Michael Bower, from Waterthorpe, was drawn as the lucky winner who,
together with a partner, will be invited to a pre-match lunch with the big
screen celebrity and other directors, followed by executive seats at one of
the club's league matches.
Michael scored in the draw which he was automatically entered into when
he opened a Yorkshire Building Society Blades Savings Account. The account
lets fans watch their money grow with a great rate of interest, but also
generates an annual bonus, which is used to train players of the future
through the Blades Hallam FM Youth Academy.
Michael said "I'm delighted, the only other competition I have ever won was
the Blades Super Draw, so they are definitely my winning team. I opened
the Blades savings account when it was launched last year. I've been a fan
for the last 40 years and is a great way of giving something back to the club."
The Yorkshire Building Society Blades Account offers:
· A competitive 2.35% gross AER rate of interest, irrespective of size of
