05.08.2016 - Pilgrims build new partnership
After a long summer of international football, the Pilgrim faithful will be glad to see the return of domestic football this weekend, as they welcome Stalybridge Celtic to the Jakemans Stadium for the opening league fixture of the season.
The club has been busy on the pitch preparing to hopefully go one step further this time around and achieve their promotion aspirations, while off the pitch they’ve been equally as proactive.
Having engaged in minor sponsorship activities last season, local business, Mick George Ltd have come to an arrangement that will see the construction company feature as the Main Stand sponsor for the remainder of football to be played at the stadium before moving in to new premises the year after next.
The partnership will see Mick George Ltd becoming the new Waste Management provider for the club’s facilities as well as offering match-day entertainment in the form of the ‘Skip Challenge’ and ‘Mick the Skip’ mascot appearances throughout the year.
Jon Stump, Finance Director of Mick George Ltd commented: ‘’The brief encounter that we had last year with the club after opening our new site in the town was a good one. We were keen to progress our involvement and thought this was a good opportunity.’’
Stump Continues: ‘’Throughout the season we will look to engage with supporters, and hopefully use our experience of sponsoring other higher league teams, to benefit their experience.’’
