SST is proud and pleased to be supporting this exciting initiative. We are the only Non-League club to have been selected to participate.
The football clubs involved have long-established nicknames from the local craft industries that have shaped the community and locality. Macclesfield Town – “The Silkmen” named due to the towns textile trade, Walsall Town – “ The Saddlers” linked to the leather production and tanneries, Luton Town – “The Hatters”, Crystal Palace – “The Glaziers, Sheffield United –“The Blades” from the city’s worldwide reputation for steel production. Stoke City, “The Potters”, reflects one of England’s greatest industries having been the centre for ceramics production since the 17th century.
Further information can be found in the documents below and on the Home Ground website. We will be providing updates on this website as the project develops over the next few months.
