THE campaign to create Weston Football Club s wives and girlfriends (WAGS) calendar has got off to a fiery start.
THE campaign to create Weston Football Club's wives and girlfriends (WAGS) calendar has got off to a fiery start.
Last week the Weston & Somerset Mercury announced the Seagulls' aim to raise money for its 60th anniversary and Weston Hospicecare by creating the Weston WAGS calendar.
Candice Davies, aged 19, beat off stiff competition and was crowned Miss January at a ceremony at the Woodspring Stadium in Winterstoke Road, after the resort team's hard-fought 1-1 draw against Fisher Athletic on Monday.
Candice, of New Road, Churchill, said: "I want to help the campaign as both my grandparents died of cancer and my mum is currently being treated for breast cancer."

The 2009 calendar, also supported by Star Radio, will feature WAGS from the club's supporters and anyone else who would like to get involved.

The winner of each monthly competition will feature in the club's special 2009 calendar and all entries will feature on the Mercury website.
Submissions can be made by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by sending photos to: Seagulls Calendar, Weston & Somerset Mercury, 32 Waterloo Street, Weston, BS23 1LW.
Winners will be announced at the Seagulls game and then in the Mercury.
