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.
