The new kit is here! Tops are £40 for adults and £35 for youths and we have socks and shorts for both kits, with a discount if you buy the lot. We have a limited number of each size as a first order, so don’t dilly dally to make sure that you get your size. Note that sizing is a wee bit smaller than last year’s kit. Unfortunately that has meant that almost all the XXLs are gone in the blue kit!
We’re tinkering with the online shop, so it’s been down for a wee while. Hopefully it’s now back and the new kit should be available. We’ll build up the number of items available over the next couple of weeks.
We’ll be introducing a range of high-quality souvenirs celebrating the Club’s 150th anniversary.
Our next away bus will be to Peterhead…deep breath. Note that we will not be taking transport to Coatbridge on 1st October.
PETERHEAD – Saturday 10th September
Clarkston – 8.30, Mount Florida – 8.45 and High Street – 9.00. Prices: £15 for those in employment; £12 for concessions and £5 for the under 16s.
Again, we’d ask you to help us by booking for every match. For this match only, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to book, or buy a ticket at the souvenir shop today or next week. Tickets will also be available from myself. Graeme Shields is on holiday so will not be able to take bookings.
HAMPDEN PARK TO HOST “SLEEPOVER” FOR HOMELESS CHARITIES
We’re happy to support the initiative that one of our fans, Alan Gray, is helping to organise. Hampden is to play host to an unusual fundraising initiative to raise money and awareness of homelessness in Scotland. The Hampden Snore event will take place on the 30th of September with participants spending the night sleeping trackside to support the work of The Bethany Christian Trust and Street Soccer Scotland.
Participants in a SleepOut are expected to spend the night outside using warm clothing, a sleeping bag, and possibly cardboard as a shelter. Safety is paramount throughout the event with stewarding in place, including first aid provision, and access to a warm dry space as well as toilet facilities.
For further information and to register for the event please visit: www.hampdensnore.com and the Souvenir Shop has some flyers.
Membership and 60 Club
The 60 Club will gain be £40 for the whole season. As well as having the chance to win a right good few bob, you’ll be helping to keep the Association’s away buses on the road. Applications for both clubs are available from Norrie Walker, Graeme Shields or the Souvenir Shop. Cards are now available for uplift at the Shop now.
Race Night – Saturday 15 October
The quiz nights we organised last year were a huge success and we’ll continue running them this season. We will also be joining the supporters’ football tyeam to host a race night on Sat 15th October. More details next week, but tickets are available at £5 from Andy McNaught (junior) who’ll be stoatin’ about the club bar in the JB McAlpine.
The Black and White Club for younger fans will run again this year. New members must be twelve years of age or under, but existing fans can remain in the Club until they’re 16. Membership forms can be obtained from the club shop on match days, from Frank McCrossan, John Richmond or by emailing email@example.com
Membership is free and we’re hoping that we can attract a record number of members this year.
