Good afternoon and welcome to today’s final home fixture against Tranmere Rovers!

I would like to give special mention all the senior sponsors for their support over the season. Northern Power House Developments, GB Architectural, Dickies Tiles, Pennine Pneumatic Services, Hanson Plywood, Integro and RSA Group have played a huge part in supporting the club and we thank you for the continued support.  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. I am very happy to welcome along guests from Pennine Pneumatic Services, Dickies Tiles, RSA and Hanson Plywood. We hope you all have a fantastic day with us and thank you again for all your superb support!

I am delighted to announce today’s hospitality is a complete sell out with over 300 guests in attendance! I would like to thank today’s Match Sponsors who are DESIGN AND DISPLAY, KPMG, CTS IRONMONGERY, SPECSAVERS HALIFAX, MIKE RILEY AND FRIENDS and GRANDADS & PENSIONERS! We also have Match Ball Sponsors today including GB ARCHITECTURAL, WESTGAGE MOTORS and THE DYE FAMILY.

There has been an overwhelming response to all sponsorship and match hospitality today so we’re all set for a great day followed by the End of Season Player Awards which will take place after the game along with special guest comedian Lea Roberts!

We thank you all for your continued support and wish you and the family a very pleasant day with us!

Thank you to our season box holders who are Stewart Charnock Bates and the FCHT Commercial Group! Your continued sponsorship is much appreciated, and we look forward to hopefully welcoming you back next season!

Today’s army of mascots are Alfie McDonald, Libby Branter, Sebastian Branter, Tristan Branter, Daniel Finaly, Saxon Dye, Katie Ellison, Samuel Dye and Keira Ashcroft! All huge FCHT Supporters and regular mascots throughout the seasons! I would like to thank you and your families for all the support and hope to see you all back for the 2018 / 2019 season! (If you’re not too old then)

I am currently working hard towards securing new sponsorship for the 2018 – 2019 campaign! 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. I would like to say a very special Thank you to Pennine Pneumatic Services and RSA for agreeing to the continuation of senior shirt sponsorship at the club in 2018 / 2019.

I would also like to say a massive thank you to all the staff and volunteers at FCHT – these are the people who work their magic behind the scenes and help make things happen in and around the club! Most give up their time for no financial reward and its you guys who help the club retain vital funds! Thank you again for all your efforts this season and we look forward to next season together.

I would also like to say thank you to Nigel, Jamie, Julia and the rest of the team at Shay Stadium Catering – we appreciate all your help over the last season and we look forward to working with you all again in the new season.

It’s now time to say goodbye to Saturday Football down at The Shay and put the pre -season graft in, to secure new sponsorship and interest in 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.

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.

Thank you once again for all your support this season! Here’s to a great season in the National League!

Enjoy your summer and I will see you all very soon!!!!!!
