Sutton Coldfield

Recently KitAid were the match day sponsors at the Sutton Coldfield v Rainworth game and also featured in the programme.

Sutton Coldfield have kindly invited all future opponents to bring unwanted kit to the ground. This has also been extended to clubs that use the home ground to train on. Thanks to Helen for her work on this and we look forward to receiving kit in the future.

Pete's 2012 Tonne Run Challenge

On Saturday 24th November 2012 Pete ran from Ballysillan in Belfast to his house in Carrickfergus, a distance of 13.5 miles. As a result of this he has run over 1000 miles on the road this year, completing the Tonne Run challenge. The reason for the challenge is to try and raise money for the charity ‘Stand By Me’, helping those with next to nothing in Ethiopia. The target is £1000.  If you fancy donating head on over to the following site.  Every penny makes a difference.


Well done to Pete from all at KitAid on an amazing achievement!
