Topman Lads’ R us!

Topman Window Display
Topman Window Display
It’s great to know we’re the coolest and most famous club in town!

We like Topman clothes, but is it cool of Topshop to use our name without asking us first? And we certainly don’t think it’s very cool of them to change our sign to “Topman Lads’ Club”. (see picture)

We think it would be nicer if they were more like our favourite topman, Morrissey, who recently gave us a cool £20,000 towards our £1,000,000 appeal. After all, Salford Lads’ Club is a registered charity with no guaranteed funding.

What do you think?

Send us an email  to with your comments and ideas and we’ll put the best ones up here and pass them on to Topshop.
