New kits - Nantwich Town Cubs training session at the Applewood Arena (2)

Nantwich Town Disability Football (NTDF) have launched an appeal to buy new kits ahead of their new season, writes Jonathan White.

The award-winning club, which provides football sessions for all ages and all disabilities, is based at Nantwich Town and plays on the Applewood Arena 3G astroturf pitch.

Now they are looking to purchase new kits for the upcoming season for its three teams Nantwich Town Cubs, Nantwich Town PAN, and Nantwich Town Wolves.

The new kits are required for Nantwich Town Cubs so they all have the same kit to train in, for Nantwich Town PAN as they require match kits for the League they are entering in September, and for Nantwich Town Wolves as the kits have wear and tear and new players are joining.

The total cost is £2,900 and over £2,000 has already been raised. A NTDF GoFundMe page has been set up here.

Craig Acton, Nantwich Town Disability Football, said: “We are currently hoping to purchase new kits for the upcoming season for our under 16s, adult pan-disability and visually impaired football teams. We need your help.

“Please give anything you can. It will all be gratefully appreciated.”
