Boreham Wood Football Club, are absolutely delighted to announce that we have a new Principle Shirt Sponsor for our 1st team. The shirt deal with Barnet and Southgate College was concluded last week, however with the Club deep into their FA Cup preparation it was decided it would be better to promote it last week but make the formal announcement this week.
As you all know the Club through our FA Cup run, has been getting national TV exposure and featuring on national Radio. This obviously helped us conclude the deal and with the 1st team still riding high in the Conference South Division, the timing could not of been better. The College can see the clubs year on year progress and decided that they like what we are achieving and wanted to be a part of our future going forward.
1st team Manager Ian Allinson said “I’m very proud that having reached the FA Cup 1st round proper before exiting the competition on Saturday. We have also put together a strong squad of ambitious players to help us with our promotion ambitions and I want that to continue. That the College can now see the benefits of coming on board with us is fantastic. So this really is a timely Shirt sponsorship with Barnet and Southgate College and it can only help me to continue to push our 1st team to new heights and to re affirm the Chairmans vision”.
Allinson continued “With what we do as a club in Sport and Education, this Sponsorship is a perfect fit and with all of our recent success, this is welcomed by everyone at the club. It will hopefully continue our momentum and will I hope help our Chairman to sustain my budget. It is amazing how much we’ve improved since our promotion to the Conference South three seasons ago and this is an exciting new development as we are creating another local partnership with a top class community establishment, which is great news for everyone.
Community Manager Loretta Browne said “our Chairman has worked extremely hard to find the right partner for us and in this tough economic climate that is not easy. Having Barnet and Southgate College as our new shirt Sponsorship, works tremendously well for me in the Community department, as the club always acknowledges the importance of Community, Sport and Education”.
She continued “We managed to bring the FA Cup to the people of Borehamwood last Thursday and we also got to take the famous old trophy to the Wood St Campus of Barnet and Southgate College and places that all our supporters and local people could see it. Of course we knew the game against Brentford would help us to promote the new shirt Sponsorship. It was also the perfect photo opportunity for both ourselves and Barnet and Southgate Collage to announce our new Partnership and we’ll also announce new community initiatives that benefit local people in the coming month’s”..
Barnet and Southgate College Principal David Byrne said “Barnet and Southgate College is excited to be the first team shirt sponsor of Boreham Wood Football Club and we are keen to follow their ambitious progress in the Conference South Division in the coming season. The Club is an integral part of the community as is the College and we look forward to seeing how our two brands can work together to enrich the lives of our local communities.”
