Got, got, need! The timeless words of football sticker collectors swapping doubles in the playground. Scottish, English, the Euros, the World Cup. Every season, every competition, you just couldn't wait for those packets to hit the shelves. Appearing in the albums yourself was a pipe dream, however thanks to one Scottish company that dream could come true for young players across Scotland.
words & pictures, a photography company from South Queensferry, has invented 'W&P Stickers™'. It gives youth clubs the chance to have their own album, to be filled with stickers from packets featuring players across the age groups. There is no start up cost to the club and every packet that is sold results in a donation being made - so it's great fun but also great for funds. Not only that, but it's the perfect tool to help players from across the age groups get to know one another, a key part of many community clubs' ethos.
The first club to sign up is local outfit, Kirkliston and South Queensferry FC. Club chairperson Kate Richardson said: "We are delighted to be celebrating our 25th anniversary by being the first grassroots club in the UK to commission a Collectors Album featuring W&P Stickers™. This terrific souvenir will remind our players, coaches, parents and supporters, of their time with the club and will be something we're sure they will treasure. We hope that we will see some of our players in professional teams in the future and we will be proud to know that they started with KSQ. Our thanks go to the entire team at Words & Pictures who have produced the album for us."
Also signed up are Inverkeithing Hillfield Swifts. Would your club like to be next? Fill out the form below and we'll be in touch with more information.
