Rob Simpson, managing director of SCA Timber Supply, complains at having to wear a Port Vale shirt for Sport Relief when his heart lies with Stoke City.

Sporting Simpson’s Strained Shirt

Published:  17 March, 2010

UK: Life-long Stoke City supporter, Rob Simpson, managing director of SCA Timber Supply, was forced to wear neighbouring club Port Vale’s kit to work on Monday 15 March by customers, friends in the trade and staff at the company’s Stoke on Trent and Welshpool offices, to raise money for Sport Relief 2010.

Two ‘pots’ of bidding money – one ‘for’ and one ‘against’ Rob Simpson wearing the Port Vale kit – were combined at the end of the day with funds raised by raffling a signed Stoke City football (won by SCA’s Alan Broadley). The total raised for Sport Relief was £1,000, in just under a week.
