Auchtermuchty Bellvue AFC will step out in style next season thanks to the latest sponsorship deal with Glenfarg-based waste management company Binn Group.
The Fife Amateur League side will begin their first division title race in new strips bearing the Binn Group logo in pride of place across their chests.
Captain Graeme Christie said the sponsorship provided crucial support for the club when many others in the amateur football world are struggling to survive.
“We can’t thank Binn Group enough for their generous support,” he said. “It means a lot to the guys to be able to look good when they run out onto the pitch – it gives us an extra lift. “Binn Group has also supplied rain jackets for the players so we look really professional. Let’s hope we can transfer that into our games next season.”
Binn Group Transport Manager Mark Cairns is on the Auchtermuchty Bellvue AFC committee. He pointed out that the club sponsorship was just the latest community support initiative by the leading recycling and waste management providers.
“Binn Group is rooted in the community and always keen to support local clubs, groups and organisations where it can,” he said. “The company has been supporting Auchtermuchty Bellvue for the last six seasons and we’re delighted to step up as strip sponsors this year.”
“Binn Group appreciates that a sponsorship deal can mean the difference between surviving or going under for many small clubs and we’re happy to support these boys through another season – hopefully all the way to the top of the table.” Binn Group’s sponsorship deal also sees their signage at the ground and a company skip on the roof at the Low Road Park.
