The Vernon Building Society have pledged their support to Stockport Town FC for the next three years after committing to 3 pitch side advertising boards at the club’s home ground, Stockport Sports Village.
The Vernon Building Society, who have been part of the Stockport landscape for almost 100 years, have a long-established reputation as supporters of local initiatives.
Following the introduction of a new partnership between Stockport County FC and Stockport Town FC, giving youngsters the playing opportunities in their Under-21s and first team squads, the Vernon knew they wanted to align with this ethos.
Ian Keeling of the Vernon said:
“We’re delighted to continue our support for a further three years. The club is extremely well run to a set of values that allows it to nurture local young talent. We were particularly impressed with the way it works in harmony with our other partner, Stockport County – giving the players great opportunities for career progression.”
Stockport Town FC Chairman, Seb Rowe adds:
“We’d like to thank the Vernon Building Society for their continued support. It’s vitally important for a club like ours to attract such reputable businesses and this enables us to fulfil our commitment of giving talented footballers in Stockport the opportunities they deserve.”
The Vernon’s Marketing Manager Alex Deakin visited the football ground and was impressed with the set-up.
“The pitch is fantastic – it is great to see a local football club that is so well kept and impressive. It is reassuring to know that our sponsorship is helping the local clubs give talented youngsters in the area the opportunity to develop their football careers.”
