From Watford to Wamba

We have recently received these great pictures showing Watford FC kit in Wamba, northern Kenya.

The kit was taken out by Clare Muir from the Swan Youth Centre in Berkhamsted along with a group of students from Ashlyn’s School. Kit was also handed out to some girls school teams as well as three other schools.  A game was arranged between Man Utd and Watford (Ashlyn’s students) and not surprisingly the reds won.  Watford blamed the pitch and the heat!!

Well done to all and we look forward to supporting Clare again later this year.

Stegota FC, Kampala – latest KitAid Ambassador Club

Congratulations to Stegota FC on becoming the latest Ambassador Club for KitAid.

We have worked with Edwin Nshuti, Chairman of the club, for a number of years and we have built up a solid relationship through visits to Kampala.  You may recall the fantastic story of how we were first approached for kit and we sent some XXL Stoke City shirts which had the “Britannia BS” logo on the front.  Edwin then found a company in the city called “Britania” and pointed out that they were advertising for them!! As a result they received a large consignment of biscuits which they sold at games to their supporters.  Since then they have moved on considerably as a club and hopefully will soon be playing in the FUFA Big league as a full time team.

Thomas Eddie Enright and a group from Affinity Water recently visited Stegota where they presented Edwin with a framed Ambassador Club certificate and a pair of football boots donated by Graham Taylor.  They also took out boots and kit which will  be shared with other local teams over the coming months.

Well done Stegota and welcome to the elite KitAid Ambassador Club.
