Mary Woods with Callum Reilly
Mary Woods is looking forward to a dream holiday to Orlando after winning a prize draw organised by the club’s shirt sponsor and principle partner EZE Group.
Mary, a Blues season ticket holder from Warwick, won the Florida prize at the end of the season after submitting regular nominations for the EZE Group Birmingham City FC Player of the Month awards. All fans who nominated a player for the monthly award during the season were entered into the draw to win a trip for two to Florida.
Blues young midfield star Callum Reilly made a surprise visit to Mary’s home in Warwick to present the prize and she is now looking forward to visiting the sunshine state with daughter Sarah who has also been a season ticket holder for the last four years.
Originally from the east end of London, Mary started supporting the Blues when she became the landlady of a popular pub in Birmingham City Centre.
“I’ve been following Blues for 10 years and ever since I became interested in football after chatting to regulars in the pub,” explained Mary.
Commenting on her holiday success, she said: “I’m absolutely amazed as I’ve never won anything in my life.”
Dominic O’Reilly, chief executive of EZE Group, said: “As a company, we are all about providing memorable lifestyle experiences, so it’s great to be able to treat a loyal fan like Mary.”
