Arul Suppiah Benefit Brochure now Available!

Arul Suppiah’s 2013 Benefit Brochure was launched today (Saturday 2nd March 2013) at Somerset County Sports, the Club Shop at the County Ground, Taunton.   The brochure, designed by Paul Dimond contains many testimonies from the cricketing community and beyond, along with some famous faces from Arul’s country of birth, Malaysia.

Past and present Somerset players have written pieces on Arul including Justin Langer, Marcus Trescothick, Nick Compton and James Hildreth. In addition, the three CEO’s Arul has played under in his 13-year stint at the Club are featured in a special double page spread– Peter Anderson, Richard Gould and current Chief Executive Guy Lavender.

From the wider sporting community, there are testimonials from Bobby Gould, Ron Atkinson and Colin Charvis. Representing Malaysia is fellow athlete Dato Nicol David, Tan Sri Dr Tony Fernandes and HRH Tunku Imran.   The brochure also provides an interesting insight into Arul’s life both on and off the field, illustrating his journey as a 12-year-old boy leaving Malaysia to attend Millfield School through to today – highlighting his World Record Breaking moment of 6 wickets for 5 runs against Glamorgan in 2011.

Also included within the brochure is a competition page which gives you the opportunity to win a cricket bat signed by the 2013 Somerset Squad!   Somerset and Cricket Supporters alike will not want to miss this collectable item available in exchange for a donation of £5 from Somerset County Sports on 01823 337597 with all proceeds going to Arul Suppiah’s Benefit Fund.

Other benefit merchandise available includes branded polo shirts and a special edition benefit tie, which will be launched shortly and can be pre-ordered at the Club Shop, The County Ground, Taunton.

Arul Suppiah and the Benefit Committee would like to take this opportunity to thank Paul Dimond for his ongoing design work and Blue Print Design and Print for producing the brochures. We would also like to thank everyone who contributed and we hope you will all enjoy reading it.   For more information on all Benefit Year Merchandise, please contact Richard Brice, Chairman of Arul’s Benefit Committee and owner of Somerset County Sports on 01823 337597 or email:
