FOOTBALLERS in Cramlington are getting shirty to show their support for a worthy cause.
Cramlington United are following in the footsteps of the likes of Barcelona and Chorley by featuring a charity’s logo on their strips.
Their backing for the Teenage Cancer Trust is the first partnership of its kind in the UK between a grass-roots football club and a national charity.
Dave Malone, a spokesman for the club, said: “This is a unique coming-together, not only in the north east but the whole of the country.
“As a club, we have an extremely strong set of values, believing that children, above all else, are the key to the future of this sport.
“By working together, the aim is to increase the funding and awareness of the Teenage Cancer Trust.”
Club chairman Jonathan Buck added: “This is a major commitment by this club.
“A partnership with the Teenage Cancer Trust is a big step forward in the club’s progression and development and one which we should all be proud of.”
“If we have an opportunity to raise money, raise awareness and help to improve the lives of young people with cancer, then that’s what we should do.”
