Gloucester City manager Tim Harris has hailed the club’s new kit sponsorship deals with Dove Construction and Spatial Structures as a fantastic partnership.
The club announced yesterday that the Elmbridge Court based businesses have invested in a sponsorship deal that will see the Tigers wear a brand new home and away kit during the 2017/18 National League South season.
Speaking at the first Summer pre-season training session on Thursday, first team manager Tim Harris relayed his delight at how many businesses had already pledged their support to Gloucester City, with more to come.
“We’ve said all along that we’ve needed people to come out and support this football club” Harris said.
“To get local businesses involved is vital and we are delighted that Dove Construction and Spatial Structures have come on board with a major shirt sponsorship deal.
“Hopefully next week we will be announcing a couple more sponsors which will send out really positive messages about where this football club is heading in the near future.”
Dove Construction and Spatial Structures both link up with the club in what will be the 10th season that Gloucester City have been playing away from the city, due to the floods of 2007.
In a landmark year since then, Harris reiterated the importance of getting behind the club after the journey it has been through, as well as reaffirming his passion for bringing the club home.
“It’s been 10 years since the floods in 2007 that devastated the football club and the City of Gloucester.
“I think it’s fair to say our journey to return has been long documented especially with the hurdles and obstacles we’ve faced.
“Now they’ve all been fought off and work on the ground has started it’s important we don’t stop and we keep our foot down.
“Obviously we brought on board Connexus a couple of weeks ago and Gulam [Patel] has joined the board which is fantastic.
“We’re talking to a lot of people and I’ve still got that hunger and desire to bring this football club home and we need to do it in a good state in order to kick on from there.”
