    Dear Sirs,

    Whoever posted the review of a ‘season of sussex soccer’ needs to be aware his comments reference the Rustington FC ‘pink kit’ are offensive and totally out of order.

    The Rustington FC skipper lost his mother to Breast Cancer and subsequently the club ran the kit as a fundraiser for Cancer Research in his mothers memory.

    The club made a large amount for the charity and the pink kit helped raise the charitys profile in South West Sussex.

    If you therefore think that the kit was ‘not an approriate away kit should probably, on balance, not be allowed to make that sort of decision’ then I would really question your mentatlity.

    I look forward to a swift response before forwarding this article and the clubs views to the national press.

    I’m sure you will ammend your article understanding the serious nature of this complaint.

    I think your comments are disgusting with reference to Rustington Football Club’s support of Cancer Research and the wearing of the all pink kit.

    Are you not aware of the tireless work that Cancer Research do within the community ??

    How about researching properly before you make such stupid comments ?

  3. Just to point out re: Rustington’s pink away kit, that this was to promote awareness of Cancer Research, which was also on the shirts. This is referred to in the text of the book.

    Please accept my apologies for any offence caused. I have removed the offending comment and contacted Rustington FC with a view to making a donation to the charity to concerned, as well as posting a full apology at the top of the article.
