Spalding United have received a massive boost ahead of the new season with a major sponsorship agreement.
The Tulips have teamed up with Hyundai sales and Ford authorised repairer EMG Motor Group, who are based in the town’s St John’s Road, to sign ‘a very generous’ three-year deal - the best in the club’s 94-year history.
“The club is very excited and extremely grateful to EMG for investing in us and to our 18-year-old commercial manager Mark Carroll for negotiating the sponsorship package,” said press officer Ray Tucker.
“We are very confident we can work closely together to fulfil our aim of progressing upwards through the football pyramid.”
EMG general manager Paul Watkins-Groves said: “We are proud to sponsor Spalding United Football Club.
“We recognise that the club is moving forward and they have a vision of achieving Step Three football which we would like help them achieve.
“As a recognised local firm we believe in supporting our town and part of that is its football team.
“We wish Spalding United the best of luck in the forthcoming season and we will be supporting their journey many seasons to come.”
Mr Tucker added: “We are entering into a completely new era as a club with lots of interest from local individuals and companies expressing wishes to be involved.
“And we have already begun to forge a better working relationship with our landlords, South Holland District Council, working together.
“We firmly believe there are exciting times ahead for the club. We are a community club moving forward with a total of 18 teams from senior to under-7 currently involved. New to the structure this season is the introduction of an under-18 team.”
