I know that if you want to wish someone Happy Birthday that you have to write to the club weeks in advance of the game you want it to be at and then it will come up on the scoreboard prior to kick off.
As for an announcement that might be a bit more tricky, and I'm not totally sure. Your best bet would be to ring the club and then just see what they have to say.
