PARTNERSHIP WITH THE BRADLEY LOWERY FOUNDATION

#WEARINGITFORBRADLEY
SUNDERLAND AFC KEROCHE (Kenya) ARE PRIVILEGED, PROUD AND SO HAPPY TO ANNOUNCE OUR NEW PARTNERSHIP WITH THE BRADLEY LOWERY FOUNDATION IN THE UK.
On Friday 5th April our UK president Gary Lamb and Vice president John Eilbeck had a meeting with LYNN MURPHY, the head of communications and fundraising at the BRADLEY LOWERY FOUNDATION and we are so pleased to announce our new partnership, which will hashtag under the logo of
#WEARINGITFORBRADLEY
In the partnership LYNN shall become an admin on our teams Facebook page, to help us with her marketing skills, and our Vice President John Eilbeck has offered to do voluntary work at the Bradley Lowery Foundation.
How will this work ?
Both organisations will benefit from the partnership, in the following ways.
Sunderland AFC Keroche (Kenya) have a total of 108 children in our academy in 4 different categories
(a) Children’s Academy
(b) Junior Academy
(c) Intermediate Academy
(d) Senior Academy
plus 30 players in our 1st team squad
Our aim is for all our academy children to wear the BRADLEY LOWERY SHIRT in memory of their little hero.
(During our last visit to Kenya, all the children, were told Bradleys inspirational story, and are aware how much it means to wear his shirt)
And our 1st team shall wear Bradleys shirt in any cup competition
We currently have a total of 43 Bradley shirts between our children’s and Junior academies, and are hoping our UK fans can donate more shirts, so that all our academy kids can wear them, but also our 1st team wear them in any Cup Competition.
This is how you can do it:
If you click on the following link, to the Bradley Lowery Foundation website shop, you can purchase any size shirt for only £10, either with or without the Dafabet Logo
https://bradleyloweryfoundation.com/shop/
The Bradley Lowery Foundation shall benefit from the sales of the shirts, then when you fill in the address to send the shirt, Simply put in the following;
SAFC KEROCHE
c/o Mr. John Eilbeck,
“CASTLEDENE”
Dene Rd.
Seaham,
Co. Durham.
SR7 8QW
our club and academy will then benefit from the shirts
We are hoping to get the following shirts
age 7-8yrs 10 shirts (now fulfilled) THANK YOU
age 9-10yrs 10 shirts (now fulfilled) THANK YOU
age 11-12yrs 5 shirts (now fulfilled) THANK YOU

But we still require the following:
Size Small 25 shirts (with Dafabet logo)
Size Medium 25 shirts (with Dafabet logo)
Large 15 shirts (with Dafabet logo)
Please Note:
If we able to get over and above our intended target, we shall give away any excess shirts to our fans, who could never afford to own their own shirt. Because a football shirt in Kenya is the equivalent of 2 months wages (To those who are lucky enough to have a job)
(So we’ll be painting the whole of our region, RED & WHITE)
So if you would like to help both organisations for only £10, we would be eternally grateful.
We would like to thank the BRADLEY LOWERY FOUNDATION, for this wonderful gesture, and hope we have a wonderful future partnership.
On behalf of both parties, we ask if you can help for only £10, please just follow the above instructions
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE TO ANYONE WHO DONATES

PROMOTED AGAIN (3 times in 6yrs)

On Sunday 25th November, we travelled to the Afraha Stadium in Nakuru to participate in the promotion play-off finals

Our 1st semi-final game kicked off at 11am against SOCIETY43 FC. After 17mins we were leading 2-0 with a brace from OKEKE, but SOCIETY43 pulled a goal back from a penalty, then equalised 5 mins later to make it 2-2, but on the stroke of half-time OKEKE completed his hat-trick to give us a 3-2 half-time lead.

2mins into the 2nd half SOCIETY43 scored again to level it to 3-3, which was the full-time score. So, we went to penalties, both teams missed 1 each in the allocated 5 penalties to make it 4-4, so now we went to sudden death with SOCIETY43 kicking 1st, we both scored the next 4, to make it 8-8, then SOCIETY43 missed, and up stepped Capt. Jose to slam home the winning penalty. The celebrations afterwards between the players and fans were simply amazing.

_____________________________________________________________________

While our game was in progress WEST STARS FC and RONGAII FC were playing each other in the other semi-final which WEST STARS won 1-0. So we would play WEST STARS in the final.

Both finalists were given only 1hrs rest before the final.

_____________________________________________________________________

I the final WEST STARS took a 1-0 lead in the 20th minute, which is how it stayed until injury time, when Capt Jose received the ball beat 2 defenders and almost burst the net to level at 1-1 with the last kick of the game.

Once again we went to penalties. Both teams scored the first 4, then WEST STARS missed the 5th and it was left to KINYANJUI MBURU (A young product of our academy) to step up and calmly smash home the winner to win 5-4, and give us a 3rd Promotion in 6yrs.

Here are some pictures of the celebrations

THEY WILL BE HERE VERY SOON
