That was the invitation cum challenge to adult sports clubs in Kilkenny from Lucozade Sport ambassador and Kilkenny hurling All-Star, Henry Shefflin when he launched the new and improved Lucozade Sport Club Crusade.

This year, Lucozade Sport is offering adult sport clubs in Kilkenny free training equipment and kit in exchange for Lucozade Sport bottle caps. A bespoke catalogue has been developed so that clubs know exactly how many caps they need for each item.

Clubs will be sent the items once the specified amount of caps have been collected and verified.

Henry Shefflin said he thought it was great that Lucozade Sport was committing to their successful Club Crusade initiative for a second year.

“I really felt that last year’s initiative was a fantastic idea, and this year it is even better because clubs are guaranteed rewards for saving their bottle caps,” Henry said. “Clubs can look through the catalogue, decide what they would like and will know exactly how many caps they need to get it.

“Gear and equipment is always in short supply, as I know from my own club, Ballyhale Shamrocks, so I am sure a lot of clubs will be delighted with the new offer. ”

Jim Geraghty, Marketing Manager for Lucozade Sport said they listened to feedback from clubs who took part last year and have adapted the initiative to reward every club that signs up and collects bottle caps.

“We have partnered with Azzurri, who are providing the equipment and kit,” he expalined. “We have some fantastic gear ranging from training cones and bibs to full sets of jerseys so I would encourage any adult teams in clubs, big or small to get collecting.”

Clubs can register from June 24 at www.lucozadesport.ie.”
