The sketchbook is drawn by Harold Riley and chronicles Manchester United's Champions League final victor in 1999. The auction's copy is signed by Sir Alex Ferguson. There are only 1,999 copies of the book in existence.

It is only one of the items that will become available when the charity auction, also raising money for the League Manager’s Association Charity, West Suffolk Hospital Charity and the GeeWizz charitable foundation, launches on Saturday (November 14).

It will run for just over two weeks, until November 29.

Gina Long, founder of Sir Bobby's Online Auction, said: "We have again been blown away by the generosity of people who have donated such amazing money-can’t-buy experiences.

“It is not too late to donate items while we urge everyone to register to bid this week ahead of Saturday’s big kick-off."

To date, the auction has raised more than £700,000.

Prizes include a VIP day with the Red Arrows, a behind the scenes slot at Radio Suffolk and a limited edition Three Lions shirt, donated by Wayne Rooney.

There a whole list of other football and non-football related prizes and experiences up for grabs.
