Happy New Year to you all and welcome along to the MBi Shay Stadium for today’s Vanarama National League clash against Macclesfield Town.

As the festive period has finally drawn to an end I would like to say a massive thanks to all those who have supported us in 2017 and I am looking forward to working with everyone in 2018!

FC Halifax Town is a special place to work and a club where everyone pulls together to make things happen! A special mention to all the volunteers who give up their own time to work at the club along with our superb FCHT Media Team who are always on hand to keep you updated on the latest news and game coverage!

I would like to thank today’s sponsors who are Laura and Paul Hustwit along with sponsors Angel Care UK. I would like to thank you all for the continued support and I hope you enjoy your day with us!

Today we also welcome mascots Junior Cope, Masie Cope, Tristan Branter, Libby Branter, Sebastian Branter, George Cousen, Lewis Magson and Poppy Craft – let’s hope you guys are today’s lucky charms and lead the team out to a massive 3 points!

We’re still on the lookout for final player sponsorships! We currently have shirts available for Michael Collins, Jake Hibbs, Marco Basic, Martin Riley and Ben Tomlinson to name a few! Please get in touch if you would like to sponsor any of these players for just £200 which includes your player presenting his playing shirt to you at the end of the season.

We’re also on the lookout for more mascots for future games in 2018 so if your child fancies this amazing experience then please get in contact with me directly.  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.

The focus remains 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! We currently have 20 full match sponsors booked in on various games so please see today’s programme for more info. 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.

I would like to give special mention all our senior sponsors Northern Power House Developments, GB Architectural, Dickies Tiles, Pennine Pneumatic, Hanson Plywood, Integro and RSA. 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.

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
