I would like to start by wishing you all a very merry Christmas and hope you all have a great time whatever you are up to over the festive period.
You may remember back in the summer where we donated some old SUFC kits to Bright Stars Deaf Football Club in Uganda. Well, we have kept in contact with their club organisers and the teams have been doing really well. The donated kits have given all the players such a boost and they are wearing the SUFC badge with pride.
Only last week I sent a Christmas message to them and had an email conversation to see how they were getting on. It came to light that sadly Bright Stars have limited supplies of equipment and we have promised to donate whatever we have left over from this season to again go back out there. One thing we don’t have is a supply of football boots. Out of the 2 squads of players at Bright Stars FC only 5 players have old football boots.
I am urging all SUFC fans both young and not so young to please donate any old football boots you have at home. All I ask is that they are in good condition. With Christmas just a week away I’m sure there will be many of you or your family getting shiny brand new boots as a present. Please don’t dump your old ones. Can I ask that you give them a good clean, pop the pair of boots into a carrier bag, tie it up, write the size of the boots on the outside and bring them into me at the club for us to make arrangements to get them out to Bright Stars FC. We would be grateful of any boots as it will all help but especially adult sizes from : 6 to 11’s. Thank you.
As well as our normal range of merchandise we also have a quantity of Mitre wear from our suppliers at Europa Sports in our home colours which we would not normally offer through the shop with different styles and items at silly low prices. As always once its gone – its gone and we only have the sizes as seen. We will have a rail with all of our sale and discounted items just outside of the club shop from the 30th Dec onward until its all been sold. Pop over and see Alfie in the shop and we can get it badged up for you.
