FOOTIE FEVER

First News - - CRAZY BUT TRUE -

A JU­NIOR foot­ball club from Stock­port has cre­ated its very own foot­ball sticker al­bum – just like the fa­mous Panini one!

Around 200 play­ers and their coaches at Rose Hill JFC have been im­mor­talised in sticker form for the al­bum.

The idea was in­spired by the fa­mous Panini foot­ball stick­ers that fea­ture Premier League and in­ter­na­tional stars.

Rose Hill JFC’s chair­man, Jaume Pi­joan, had seen ju­nior teams in Spain make their own al­bums and de­cided to in­tro­duce the idea here in the UK.

The al­bum and stick­ers will be sold in sev­eral lo­cal shops to help raise money for the club. Play­ers will be able to buy, swap and col­lect stick­ers of them­selves and their team-mates.

James, who plays for the un­der-9s team, said: “It’s won­der­ful hav­ing our own ju­nior sticker al­bum. Not many other chil­dren can say that they have a sticker of them­selves. I FEEL LIKE A LE­GEND!”
