New Kit and sponsor
One decision of the working party formed to secure the future of the club
was that we needed to offer players new team branded kit. This will ensure
we look like a team when we go on the field and hopefully will enhance
performance! The kit is now being ordered in time for the season and I am
pleased to announce that the name on the shirts will in fact be a charity
which is dear to all players who have been at the club for a while: The
Hannah Memorial Academy. This is a charity set up in memory of Hannah
Foster, whose father Trevor played for the club for many years. Hannah was
tragically murdered in 2003 and the charity has a fascinating story which
you can read on the web-site: www.hannahmemorialacademy.org. It runs a
school for poor children in the Darjeeling area of India.
Trevor and his wife Hilary are fully supportive of this move. The
arrangement involves generous donations to the club and charity from a
couple of players. I hope we will as a club raise more money during this
and future seasons.
