St. Ives Town FC Renewal
The Saints begin preparation for the new season next week with the clubs first friendly against Soham Town Rangers as they look to improve on their league position from last year. However, off of the pitch, significant progress is already being made.
Pleasingly, the club has managed to renew its partnership with local business Mick George Ltd, who for a fourth consecutive year will remain as sponsor to one of the stands at the Pro Edge facilities, for which it played an integral part in creating the seated area that lines the playing pitch. In addition, the company will continue as the official Academy Partner.
Equally, Mick George Ltd will provide complementary waste services, taking care of all skip and bin collections generated on match-days, which will undoubtedly boost the clubs’ financial situation.
Behind the scenes, there are various projects ongoing to enhance the Saints playing and training facilities. Mick George Ltd has vowed to support those developments, most notably in the form of multiple service and material provisions which include; Soil to repair the pitch, gravel and ballast for the respective car-park and access route upgrades, as well as skips for disposing of Clubhouse debris.
Mark Taylor, Commercial Director at St. Ives Football Club said: ‘’Mick George Ltd has been a fantastic supporter and partner of the club for many years and it is a real testament to the business that it has always retained its ethos of helping so many community projects and causes whilst formulating such a prestigious brand. Our relationship continues to develop to different levels with various initiatives and ideas being explored.’’
Jon Stump, Finance Director at Mick George Ltd commented: ‘’Our links with the local community in, and around St.Ives are well established, and one we’re particularly proud of, as we are with all of our grass-root partnerships. Having operated from the location for a number of years, the business continues to build a wonderful relationship with the nearby residents and other commercial businesses.’’
