Good Afternoon and welcome to today’s Vanarama National League opener against Aldershot.

Well… here we go again and It doesn’t seem like 2 minutes ago since that memorable final day against Chorley!

It feels great to be back in the swing of match days and we have plenty of new sponsors to welcome to the club! Over the last few weeks I have been busy with meetings and there is plenty to celebrate off the field! I would like to give special mention to Dickies Tiles as new back of home shirt sponsors along with Pennine Pneumatic who have kindly agreed to sponsor the back of the away shirt! Both companies are very well established in Halifax and I am looking forward to working with both over the coming season!

I would like to give special mention all our senior sponsors Northern Power House Developments, GB Architectural, Integro, Hanson Plywood, Dickies Tiles & Pennine Pneumatic. Our main sponsors all play a crucial role with the club and I would encourage you to use the services they offer whenever you can. Please mention your connection with the Club when making contact.

The focus is now on Match Day Sponsorship and Hospitality! Thank you to those who have already secured their dates and for anyone else who is thinking about it please do get in touch with me direct!

Being one of our match sponsors guarantees not only a great day or evening out but the chance to either promote your business, use as a gift or maybe for a celebration – whatever its purpose, our focus is on making sure you and your guests have a memorable experience with us.

Mascot packages. . . Children have the chance to experience an unforgettable day at The Shay. The package allows mascots to take a look behind the scenes on a match day, and also gives them the opportunity to meet their heroes… and yours!

You can also enjoy a fantastic meal in our banqueting suite. If you would like to book this package then again please don’t hesitate to contact us at the club office – we’ve a number of options and prices

If you are interested in having a memorable and fun day out at The Shay, don’t forget we have a great hospitality suite that do great food, so get your name down and we promise to make your day one of the best, at The Shay!

Tickets are already selling very well but please don’t forget about our annual Sporting Dinner with special guest speakers including John Motson and DR Kevin Jones. This year’s event will take place on Friday 13th October so please get in touch with me about booking a table for your business or friends.

We’ve also had a fantastic start to our player sponsorships – We’re now down to the final few so please check out Today’s programme to see who’s still available.

For just £200 you can sponsor a player home or away for the season and benefit from your name in the programme each week along with a special invitation to the end of season player awards where your players shirt will be presented to you.

We currently have some availability on ground boards for the rest of this season and the season ahead. If you would like any information on the packages available then please contact me on the below.

ALL revenue is vital and helps towards covering necessary but costly expenses that the club incurs daily. As you’re probably aware, the club works very hard on little off the field resource to generate the income needed, so thank you to all new and existing sponsors who have already supported us this season.

For more details on sponsorship or anything to support the club please give me a call on 07967 949 777 or drop me a line at

Thank you all for the continued support BRING ON THE SEASON!
