New Monthly SUFC Fixture Poster (November)

We are aiming to produce a monthly poster that lists all the upcoming home fixtures. The poster will be shared on social media by the club, but if you are able to, then we are keen for supporters to print posters and ask local businesses, pubs and shops in their area to put it up.

If you can help spread the word then you can download and print the poster by clicking here or saving the the poster below.

The large (A3) yearly posters are also available to collect from the club shop for distribution to local businesses.

It is important you ask permission and not fly-post, as this can lead to complaints and even fines.

Many thanks to Martin Eaves for designing the poster.

Up The Ites!
