St. Neots Town FC Sponsorship Renewal
The games are coming thick and fast for St. Neots Town FC at the start of the new 2017 / 2018 campaign, and while results on the pitch might not have been as positive as they would have anticipated for the senior side, the club has received some welcome relief in the form of an extended partnership with local business Mick George Ltd.
The Construction company which initiated its formal connection with the club back in 2015, will once again remain as ‘The Saints’ main sponsor for a further year. The main attributes of the agreement will see the naming rights of the ‘Mick George Training Academy’ upheld, as will the organisations association with the recently added education facility that has been installed at the training amenity.
In exchange, the club will receive funding and complimentary Waste Management services at the 3G Arena and Rowley Park premises. Critically, this has freed up capital for improvement work to their state-of-the-art 3G pitch, which Mick George Ltd will also be supporting with both money and groundworks.
The collaboration certainly appears to be paying dividends, with the U18 scholar team, last term lifting the Thurlow Nunn Cambridge Division League title for the first time in the club’s history and then adding the County Cup trophy, while preserving an unbeaten home record.
However, It’s definitely not been a case of resting on their laurels during the close-season. Behind the scenes, the club has been proactively engaging in various initiatives throughout the senior, reserve and youth sections to improve.
An ‘open trials’ scheme saw prospective players within the U9’s – U16’s age categories display their talents, while a new female U16’s, U18’s and Ladies section have been added, alongside a strengthened first team management line-up, thanks to the addition of Matty Hanvier and David Briggs who will support Manager Matt Clements.
Lee Kearns, Managing Director at St. Neots Town FC said: ‘’The academy is an integral part of the football clubs portfolio and to get this support once again, speaks volumes about what we’re trying to achieve. The funds received will be invaluable to the club in its ongoing quest to improve’’
Jon Stump, Finance Director at Mick George Ltd commented: ‘’Grassroots sport is something the business has a vested interest in, as we take enormous delight in helping uncover emerging talent from the communities in which we operate, regardless of the specialisation.‘’
Stump continued: ‘’Witnessing the success of the Scholars at St. Neots, and having any association with that is something we’re very proud of, so the partnership renewal was a no brainer. Of course, the real stars are the players, parents and coaching teams that are directly connected with the club, and they deserve tremendous credit for their achievements.’’
