Good afternoon and welcome to today’s Vanarama National League fixture
against Torquay.

I would like to give special mention all of 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.

Roche advertA very special welcome to our Match Sponsors today who are Roche.
Established in 1973, they have become one of the UKs leading specialists
in the supply and installation of audio visual presentation systems. Their
success is based on bulk purchasing policy. This enables Roche to get
extremely competitive pricing from their suppliers by taking in large
volumes of stock – something unique in the industry. Another unique
feature is their own in-house installations department. Avoiding reliance
on sub-contractors as their competitors do, Roche have their own CHAS
accredited Installation Engineers, Control System Programmers and Project
Managers ensuring a high quality of installation

I would like to say a massive thank you to all those who supported and
