We can also confirm that we have secured a new partnership with the clubs first ever training kit sponsor Albert Harrisons & Co along with securing a deal with Wham, Guide Security along with Fagan and Whalley as the Clubs main strip sponsors. Working with adidas will assist us in widening our fan base with the additional media and PR coverage we will receive of which is a very exciting prospect for the club.
