National League South football team Tonbridge Angels will kick off their season this month with a new name on their shirts – that of local housebuilder Fernham Homes.
The Angels, who play at Longmeadow Stadium, will benefit from a two-year partnership, which includes a significant five-figure sponsorship arrangement. The deal unites two well-known and thriving organisations based in the town.
As well as the Fernham Homes logo featuring prominently on both Angels’ home and away shirts, the new sponsor will be entertaining clients and hosting meetings at the football club’s hospitality complex, in addition to advertising across the club’s various communications channels.
Angels’ supporters will, of course, be able to buy replica shirts featuring the Fernham logo, thereby increasing exposure around the local area, and further afield, with online orders available from through the Angels online ticketing portal.
Tonbridge Angels chair Dave Netherstreet says: “We are delighted to announce this partnership that brings together a community-based football club and a local company based in Tonbridge that employs a number of local people; it is a perfect synergy.”
Paul Rosbrook, director at Fernham Homes, responds: “We are excited to partner with Tonbridge Angels – being based in Tonbridge it is a great opportunity for us to get more involved in the local community.”
Angels, who play in the sixth tier of football, with be in action this Saturday (August 7) against fifth tier fellow Kent team Dover Athletic in a pre-season friendly. The replica shirts will be available for pick-up from a temporary club shop in a marque at this match.
The team’s league season starts in earnest the following Saturday (August 14) with an away trip to another county side, Ebbsfleet United. The first home league match is on August 21 against Bath City (kick-off 3pm).
