After many years of being encouraged to bring out our own merchandise we have finally decided to take the plunge and after the success of our pin-badges last season we are now putting some t-shirts, beanie hats and pin badges out there for those that feel so inclined.
With our merchandise we are trying to say something about the nature, history and sub-culture of our support down the years but also in the modern era as well. None of our merchandise is mass-produced so you are unlikely to be one of hundreds of thousands who buy our stuff.
We believe our merchandise is unique, original and will appeal to those who get what we’ve been doing with the fanzine down the years. The profits from the merchandise supports the fanzine and will help us develop in future years.
One of our t-shirts is also being used exclusively to raise money for our favourite charity – the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation. 100% of the profit raised from that t-shirt will be donated to the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation and our efforts are properly registered with them and they know exactly what we are doing.
We have a target of raising £1000 for the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation and we are well on the way to achieving that. As soon as we have done, we’ll hand the dough over to the very good people who run that excellent charity. We’ll keep you fully updated of that and everything will be fully transparent.
Over time we hope to add other items of merchandise to what we do but if any of you have any ideas, suggestions about what you think might prove popular and fit within our ethos then just drop us a line on firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be delighted to hear from you.

Thank you very much.
