Bright Stars Deaf Football Club, Club Shop and Kids Go Free

 

Hello Everyone

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.

Applications will be open from Sat 30th December for our half season ticket offer with prices as follows :

Adult – £50 … Seniors – 30 … Juniors – £10

 

All half yearly season tickets will allow you to gain entry to all the remaining home league fixtures until the end of the season. Please visit the commercial website for an application form which will need to be completed and handed in with cash payments only please.

As Matt has mentioned its KIDS GO FREE on Sat 30th Dec v Whitstable as well as a thank you to all fans for your continued support with a free tea or coffee for all general admission supporters (please hand your admission ticket in at the tea bar when ordering) All current season ticket holders can obtain their free concession bonus as well with either a free pint, a free tea or coffee or a free can of soft drink (Junior season tickets will only be redeemable against non alcoholic beverages) Please present your season ticket book at either the Ites Bar, Gallery Bar or Tea Bar where one voucher will be taken from your book in return for your chosen drink.

I sincerely hope you can help us to help Bright Stars FC and turn their Christmas into a memorable one.

It just leaves me to say once again – we hope you all have a very merry Christmas and we look forward to seeing you all on the 30th December.

Up the Ites !

Commercial Update

Hello Everyone,

From having so many home games it was only a matter of time before it caught up with us and we had a big run of away games. It will be nice to see everyone back to the Havill Stadium – Holm Park on Sat 30th December for our home league match v Whitstable.

The Christmas sale on our selected SUFC merchandise went well and a big thank you to everyone who placed orders. We still have some in stock items such as beanie hats, scarves, mugs and pens should you want to purchase anything for stocking fillers for Christmas day. Please email me to arrange collection and payment.

We still have a couple of home fixtures without a match day sponsor so why not get a group of friends together and share the cost to enjoy some match day hospitality in the boardroom. Please come and see me to enquiry on free dates and the package on offer.

UP THE ITES

New Kit Supplier

Following numerous meetings held at Holm Park, the football club are delighted to announce a two year sponsorship deal with kit supplier Mitre… and Europa Sports.
This incredible sponsorship deal is testament to all the hard work put in by our Chairman and Commercial Director and will see the club fall under the umbrella of a forward-thinking kit supplier moving into the 2017/18 season. As part of this kit deal the club has taken the unprecedented step of licensing its name and club badge to Europa Sports, whom shall now supply all kit and merchandise associated with the football club moving forward.

With the club badge, logo and wording of Sheppey United FC now being under official license any reproduction of the badge for any purposes of advertisement or usage in any unauthorised means be it for personal or commercial use will infringe the rights under the licensing agreement.

The decision to come away from our in house local supplier Stadium Sports was a very tough one but the final decision was made with the interests of Sheppey United Football Club Limited. We would like to put on record our thanks to everyone at Stadium Sports for their help and supply over the past 4 seasons.

Any supporters moving forward wishing to purchase any kit/merchandise/products for the forthcoming season can do so via the club shop on our soon to be released new website. The club website is currently undergoing some major reconstruction and a new one shall be launched in early July which should prove more interactive for you our supporters. The new website will incorporate the full club shop with orders taken and dealt with by our own SUFC Commercial team, please note from point of order through to delivery, the commercial team will continue to update you on the progress of your order in a seamless transaction.

Everyone here at the club is delighted with this sponsorship and we look forward to working directly with Europa Sports and Mitre moving forward over the next 24 months.
