Good afternoon and welcome to today’s fixture against Bradford Park Avenue

They say time fly’s when you’re having fun however it’s scary where this year has gone? It feels like the weeks are going by at lightening pace and The X – Factor is back on the box which surly means it’s nearly Christmas?

Anyway… back to business and things are continuing to go very well with a busy diary of potential new sponsors which is very positive!

As always we would like to give a special mention all of our senior sponsors for this season Northern Powerhouse Development, GB Architectural, Integro, Hanson Plywood, VW Van Centre & Transline. Our main sponsors all play a crucial role with the club and I look forward to working with them this season.
Thanks to our Box Holders today Stewart from Charnock- Bates, FCHT Commercial Group along with Peter Noble and friends.

Today we welcome Len Lumb and his family who are todays Associate Match Sponsors. Len is a lifelong fan of the club and we really appreciate all the support from you over the years! Enjoy your day with us.

I would also like to welcome senior sponsors Integro and Hanson Plywood who are dining with us today.

Match Sponsorship and Hospitality

We’ve had a superb uptake on match sponsorship so far this season and I am extremely grateful to all who have already booked in with us this season.

We still have a few gaps to fill so if you’re interested in finding out more please contact me on the below email. I have also created a special page in the programme which tells you what’s available and who’s already booked in.
Sponsors Evening

I would like to thank everyone who attended this year’s sponsors evening and it was great to see so many new faces supporting the club. Special thanks to Ian Walker from Integro along with FCHT Director Stuart Peacock, Secretary Mike Sharman and Community and Youth coach Steve Nicol for providing people with an interesting insight in to the club and importance of commercial income. If anyone would like to find out more about the evenings offering, then please do not hesitate to contact me direct.

Mascots Wanted

Children are the club’s future and they 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 have a number of options and prices to consider.

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 get in touch and we can discuss the availability and various sizes.

Thanks to everyone who has been in touch re Play the Squares – if you haven’t yet been in touch please drop me a line on the contact info below.

Get your name in the programme and help our Team Physiotherapist fill his medical chest. For a £50 donation you can have your name in one of the following; the Directors Box, Home Dugout, Away Dugout, Tunnel, Floodlights (Choice of four), each Goalmouth, the Press Box and the Snack Bar. For a £10 donation you can get your name on the pitch.

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.
