Good afternoon and welcome to today’s Vanarama National League clash against Solihull Moors.

Today I would like to welcome 3 very special match day sponsors in no particular order, Graham Howes and Colin Dent under Stride Supplies. Both Colin and Graham support the club financially and we’re lucky enough to have them sponsor multiple matches throughout the season! I would like to thank them both for their fantastic support and we hope you enjoy your day with us!

Today we also welcome back Hird and Partners Vets for the second of the seasons sponsorships! Hirds vets are big supporters of the club and we thank them for the continuous support towards FC Halifax Town.

For the second time lucky we welcome The Fleece Inn at Elland, originally down to sponsor the Dagenham game but due to the obvious postponement we’ve had to change things round for them and they’re back joining us today!

Today’s mascot Isabelle Laycock!! Isabelle is 11 years old and attends Settle College in North Yorkshire.  She enjoys playing in school football and netball tournaments. This isn’t the first time we’ve had Isabelle as a mascot, so we welcome her back today! Isabelle supports the Shaymen just like her Dad and brother, Callum.  Her favourite players are Tom Denton and Matty Kosylo.

I would also like to welcome Jahan Khan and David Walton from Linear Financial who join us today with their guests. Linear are season long sponsors of the club and offer the very best help and advice on anything to do with financial planning and of course securing mortgages for yourself. They have some fantastic offers out there for our supporters and staff so if you’re ready to buy your first home or in the market place for moving home and need some specialist financial support then please get in touch with them via the advert in the programme.

A big welcome to our senior club sponsors Glenn and Matt from Pennine Pneumatic Services. Pennine are proud sponsors on the back of our away shirt and the support over the last season has been fantastic. We hope you and your guests have a great day with us and be sure to check out their new premises and services on offer which detailed in today’s match day programme advert.

We’re currently working hard towards securing new sponsorship opportunities for the 2018 – 2019 season! I would like to thank all those who I have already spoken to and I look forward to the prospect of us working together in the future. Sponsorship at any level is crucial to the success of the club both on and off field. If you would like to get involved, then please get in touch with me direct or grab me at any of the home games at the Shay. Special thanks to new sponsors Calderdale Council and BOSS Training who have both signed up to ground boards in the last week.

You can support the club from as little as £10 and we welcome anybody to get in touch with us! We enjoy looking after our sponsors at FCHT as they all play a vital role at the club.

We have some great packages to suit all budgets along with some current deals on programme advertising and ground boards for the rest of this season and 2018/2019. You can also keep your eyes peeled for a very special sponsors event coming soon.

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

22 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 the senior sponsors Northern Power House Developments who are also here with us today, GB Architectural, Dickies Tiles, Pennine Pneumatic, Hanson Plywood, Integro and RSA Group. 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
