Stoke on Trent Stairlifts for a 'Grandad Style' Football Team!

When Keith Simpson the owner of Castle Comfort Stairlifts in Wolstanton heard that Tunstall Town FC were "goin down bank" results wise and were languishing at the bottom of the league he jumped to the phone to offer sponsorship to help uplift them to climb back up, where they belong.

Go HERE to see a mini-podcast of the teams recent interview on Radio Stoke. See also a picture of the time when Keith from Castle Comforts met another notable football player, Diego Maradona or is it....?

Tunstall Town FC have played many big league teams in the past and have 4 players over retirement age with their oldest player being 75. With his Castle Comfort Centre providing many mobility aids to the older person it will be a good while yet before any of these fit and feisty players might need his assistance on that score. Tunstall Town FC have played well against well known teams in the past and just need that little bit of assistance to climb higher up the league again.

Well, a new season for Tunstall Town wearing their new jazzy strips from Castle Comfort,  may well see a change of fortune. With staff and directors present for the first home game in the strips something really exciting happened - they were 1 - 0 to the advantage
after a penalty in the first five minutes. Sadly, they went on to suffer a 2-5 loss - but very much an improvement on previous results.


  1. I didn't know Stoke on Trent had another us soccer club! And you are wise enough to sponsor one whose players need stairlifts!!

  2. Very handsome the sponsorship of the team, now to sponsor to Stoke City, C´mon Castle Comfort
