Carlisle Sponsor Gunn
Ewan Wood son of Wick Academy committee member Ken is the commercial manager with Carlisle United FC. They run a lottery called the ‘Blues Lotto’. Over the last few months Ken has been promoting the lotto in Caithness, and has managed to get the following 5 syndicates signed up for it:
- Stewart’s Stormers (Co Colin Stewart)
- Patty’s Prize Fighters (Co Pat Miller)
- Harper’s Heroes (Co Clair Harper)
- Harrold Brothers Butchers (Co Johnny Harrold)
- Gunn & Co (Co Martin Gunn)
As a result of the sterling work that Ken has done Carlisle have very kindly returned the favour and they have sponsored our club captain Martin Gunn.
Ken is pictured below wearing a 1970’s Carlisle replica shirt on a recent visit to Carlisle’s Brunton Park with their striker Luke Joyce. Martin is pictured just before the start of the Scotland v Wales game in May 2006 (picture curtesy of Callum McKay).
Academy players can be sponsored for £50 per season, and this money goes towards their training expenses.
