PIN Point Recruitment Northern Alliance premier division side Ashington Colliers have secured a sponsorship deal with Linton-based MJ Hickey, plant hire and contracts Limited, who have purchased a full set of strips.
Anthony Hickey, who was born in Newbiggin and who played for teams in the area, said: “It’s nice to be able to sponsor a local team close by to us where we have been for 40 years.
“We’re looking to continue our sponsorship in the future and to be able to give any help if required to a team going forward.”
Colliers team manager David Brown said: “We’re delighted a local company has come on board to support a local football team at a level where it is all voluntary.
“Apart from purchasing a set of strips, Anthony has also placed an advertising board around the ground and we are hoping to be able to keep him as a long term sponsor of our club.”
