We would like to place on record our thanks to Coasters supporter Tom Elliot, who has generously donated three large kit boxes for use throughout the week, on a matchday and specifically away games. 

The boxes will make a huge difference for Steve and the team as this now ensures more kit can be taken to away games and stored. It also means every piece of kit is easier and quicker to transport to training and matches. 

On the donation, Steve Cowell said: “I would like to thank Tom for the donation of the boxes, and these will go a long way to ensuring the lads have everything they need on a matchday and especially away days from now until the end of the season and beyond.

“Also, thank you to all the other fans who have offered to help find some of these boxes or offer to purchase them – it means an awful lot, and you are unbelievable.

“Ever since I arrived at this Club, the fans have been top class, and it’s a pleasure and honour to be your kitman. Thank you for your support, especially with this donation and keep cheering the lads on to what will hopefully be promotion at the end of the season.”
