Praise for an initiative that could be easily adopted by all football clubs.

The future is bright, the future is blue and white !!

 


Sheffield wednesday said for every shirt sold, this season £1 pound would be given for the first 10,000 shirts to Sheffield Childrens Hospital, this has been achieved, the next 10,000 shirts will give £2 per shirt,

This and the fact that Sheffield Childrens Hospital is the club sponsor for free, should be applauded, in an age of extreme riches, in football, I am still amazed that there are less than a handful of teams who have given their sponsorship to a charity,

The future is bright , the future is blue and white !


I went home last weekend to see the folks,

and see Sheffield Wednesday, play Blackburn in the last pre-season friendly !!!

And obviously to get D a new Sheffield Wednesday Shirt ( much to J’s annoyance !! )

 As Nick Hornby says in Fever Pitch…   ” When you choose your team, choose carefully, because you choose for life ”

 So being a caring father I chose Sheffield Wednesday for D !!!  ( before Liverpool, Man utd, and even the cardiff, try to grab her attention !!!

  And if she took up the game, Wednesday have a decent womens team, and being half English, I hope she would represent England ( I hope J is not reading this !! )

  Maybe I am getting a little far ahead !!!  ?

  I sold the shirt to D, ( NOT IN MONEY TERMS !!  I’M NOT THAT TIGHT !!!)  by saying that it had an owl, and a teddy bear ( Sheffield Childrens Hospital, worthy cause !! ) ( only 3rd team to my knowledge to do this in a sponsor given to charity )

   So I bought the shirt, which D has worn, though she liked it, because she said it has a doggy on the front ( teddy bear of the hospital !!!)  Oh well  it is a start !!

I also bought the shirt, looks like the family are eating bread and dripping for the rest of the month !!!!

………….

Last nite saw me paint out 2 wardrobes with some damp paint, not that they have damp as such, but they get that stuffy musty air, you know ??    maybe not ! 

  well damp paint smells like it was made in a fish factory in Hull !!!, so get the windows open, and the de-humidifier, which worked a treat.

 Tonight I start to paint the back room


Congrats to Sheffield wednesday,

Unvielled the new shirt for next season, back to puma, quality kit manufacturer, and of course Sheffield Childrens Hospital for the shirt sponsor…

  I think ( could be wrong ) that SWFC are only the 3rd team ( to my knowledge ) to give their sponsorship to a charity, after Barcelona, Aston villa and now SWFC,

Again , congrats to SWFC for putting common sense before money !
