Good afternoon and welcome to this Bank Holiday Monday fixture against Harrogate Town

As always we would like to give a special mention all of our senior sponsors for this season Northern Powerhouse Development, GB Architecture, 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’s Match Sponsors are the family and friends of the late David Barrett who was a lifelong supporter of FC Halifax Town. I would personally like wish you all a very special and memorable day with us here at the MBi Shay.

Today’s Match Ball Sponsors are Roger Bottomley, and friends. Roger is joined by Nick Robinson, Tony Clarke and Phil Ashworth. In weak moments Phil does occasionally nip over to Bramall Lane to watch Sheffield United, Nick is also a keen follower of Yorkshire CCC whereas Tony, in his spare time, is a devotee of the Waiters Arms in Sowerby Bridge and of course Roger is a big supporter and helper here at FC Halifax Town.
