Good afternoon and welcome to the MBi Shay for today’s Emirates FA Cup clash

against Stalybridge Celtic.

Well FA Cup fever is back in full force and the prospect of progressing in

this historic and special cup becomes very exciting for all involved!

There is something very magical about the FA Cup and I would really love

us to be in a position where we can once again welcome a big team down to

the Shay!

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; the FCHT

Commercial Group; and Peter Noble and friends.

It’s been a very busy week here at the club and there is plenty happening

from a commercial point of view. I would like to talk about the importance

of sponsorship and the impact that this has on the football club. The club

relies heavily on the commercial income and raising funds on a daily basis

is vital to the success and continuation of the football club.

I’ve had some great meetings recently with new companies and individuals

wanting to support the club – special thanks to Trade Car Outlet

Brighouse, who have just committed to various sponsorship for the season

ahead. We really appreciate your kind support!

We still need more of this so if you are a business or an individual

wanting more information then please do get in touch with me directly!

We currently have some availability on ground boards so If you would like

any information on the packages available then please contact me on the


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.

We’re also working hard behind the scenes and will be announcing our

Christmas events along with some very special fan and season ticket

engagement opportunities. The support so far this season has been

unbelievable and I would like to personally thank everyone for this!
