Simpsons Malt has backed local football club Spittal Rovers in a sponsorship deal that will see the club’s senior side benefit from a new set of match day tracksuits.
The family owned company has now provided funds to help kit out the players with the Simpsons Malt branded tracksuits, which will be worn for the next 2 seasons to all home matches as well as on their travels, which take ‘The Seasiders’ all over Tyneside as well as to Bishop Auckland and Whitburn in County Durham.
Richard Baxendale, Spittal Rovers FC Treasurer is delighted that the family-owned company is showing its backing for the club. Saying: “This is an exciting time for the Club with our move to a refurbished clubhouse at Newfields imminent, following a lot of hard work, dedication & funding. Being associated with such a well known company like Simpsons Malt is really great for us and we are truly grateful for the continued support and sponsorship that they have shown us”
Speaking about the recent sponsorship Tim McCreath, Managing Director of Simpsons Malt, said: “As life-long football fans, and active members of the local community, we are only too pleased to throw our support behind the club and offer financial contribution towards the local team.”
A proud member of the local community, Simpsons Malt often show support to a wide variety of organisations and initiatives in the surrounding area of Berwick-Upon-Tweed. Reflecting the interests of employees, the company is particularly active in the areas of culture and sport.
Dating back to 1884, there have been many locals to have played for Rovers and a lot of Simpsons Malt employees have worn the black & white striped shirt over the years too.
