What a special day we all had at the Fly DSA Arena as we held an incredible merchandise and kit sale.
Over 1000 fans turned up to the all-day event and what a success it was with the shelves being cleared.
A huge thank you firstly to Dom Stokes who once again made the building exclusively available to us – The Arena also put on complimentary tea, coffee and soft drinks, a lovely touch which we were extremely grateful for.
To Mel and Maureen who were on duty on all day – a Steelers thank you for looking after us all so well, we couldn’t have done it without you.
The Steelers had a packed shop and several other merchandise desks full of stock for the event that started at 10.00
Head coach Aaron Fox was drafted in to help serve and many fans took the opportunity of saying “hello” and discussing this years team.
The queue by opening time was half-way around the Arena
Once the doors were opened the fans came through the doors in huge numbers.
Old kit, used and brand new sticks, players skates, training tops, replica shirts and a whole range of merchandise had to be sold, and it was.
By the time 3.00pm came around the shelves were bare and the staff were exhausted.
Kids had their new T shirts, replica shirts, hats and posters. The adults had shirts and jackets. Some junior and rec players had new sticks, gloves and shorts.
For one luckly lad, Sam Mylett he had Moose’s Stick and Geoff Woolhouses game used matching blocker, catcher and pads!!!
What a day he had.
To everyone who helped organise and attend – thank you. We had a blast and by the smiles on your faces, you did as well.
