Tuktuk Day 125

Redruth United FC

Got to be honest, Redruth United FC is not one of the “92” and nor is it likely to be for a season or two. However a great story came out of the club this week that made me think a lot about the game. Regular readers will remember that I have done several articles on sponsorship and that I am not always clear that both parties benefit as much as they could …. or should!

Have a read of this, please , which I found on their Facebook Page.

Now that our season has finally reached its conclusion for 2023/24, we would like to take this opportunity to thank each, and every person connected with Redruth United Football Club for helping play their part in us having such an incredible and memorable campaign both on and off the park.

The performances this season are a reward for many years of doing the right things, working hard, sacrificing plenty, attracting the right people and the dedication given by all these people. Doing what everyone has done and in the way they have done has given so many amazing experiences to remember for a lifetime, and hopefully allow us to enjoy many more of these experiences in the future.

As a club it gives us an immense sense of pride to see so many people come together and be part of this special club and experience so many memorable moments with so many people. Togetherness and inclusivity have been the foundations on which our club and success has been built. From inside the dressing room, to the boardroom and on the sidelines together we have kicked every ball, celebrated every goal, and this season in particular, have picked each other up after a few tough results. That togetherness has been the difference and has been the special ingredient that has set us apart as a club, on and off the pitch.

We are so proud of the performances and commitment of all Redruth United players within the club, adults and youth section. Your efforts continue to go above and beyond and not unnoticed. We are very grateful for all that you give our club.

I also wish to give my heartfelt thanks to the business community ( Club Sponsor Omnia, supporting The Lily Foundation)

Finally, a massive thank you to our supporters and volunteers, we could not have had such a memorable season without your dedication behind the scenes which has not gone unnoticed. We cannot wait to start all over again in season 2024/25, where we can make new memories and dream big together.

Have a wonderful summer and we look forward to seeing you all at Clijah Park next season”

I thought that this was a genuinely classy post by the people behind Redruth United. I too would like to offer my thanks to these worthy companies. I do not know any of you but I do know that football at this level absolutely DEPENDS on people like you supporting your local clubs. As a total outsider I give you thanks and hope you benefit from the association with the club and will continue to support them in the years to come. #RESPECT

Guys, I wish you all at Redruth United every success next season. With an attitude like yours, you deserve only the very best.

My own little club in London is equally dependent on external funds and have this week announced that Season Tickets will shortly be available and that the price has been frozen at just £25 for 2024/2025. (NOTE this is a full season ticket for approximately 20 games.) I hope you are enjoying this digital tour of the clubs and maybe you would consider taking a season ticket at this bargain price.

Please kindly remember that the purpose of this 90 day challenge is to raise funds for my local club, FC Deportivo Galicia and an equal amount for Prostate Cancer. I also hope you will consider a donation to support FC Deportivo Galicia and/or Prostate Cancer UK 

If everybody chipped in with just £1 I would easily hit my target of £10,000 and life would be easier in West London whilst the charity could continue their great work. If everybody took a season ticket we’d be absolutely delighted. Just look through the website and you will see that you are GUARANTEED goals!

A HEARTFELT thanks, if you can help in any way. Thank you.
