New stadium sponsor signs on!

EVO-STIK League Brighouse Town are celebrating a lucrative five figure and three year stadium and shirt sponsorship deal.

As well as the naming rights for their Hove Edge-based stadium, Brighouse-based Yorkshire Payments are also sponsoring the EVO-STIK League North club's away kit.

The company's logos will also adorn the shoulders of the club's first team kit, be on the all their shorts and training kit and according to delighted officials at St Giles Road, be displayed on everything else from the official team coach to letterheads and all other stationery.

Founded by James Howard in 2013 and already boasting an impressive client base of more than 4,500 businesses, the independent payment solutions specialists offer a variety of simple and secure digital payment options from hand held terminals to online payment platforms.

After completing the deal to become the club's main sponsor last weekend, Howard, pictured, told fans and officials on Thursday that he was delighted to be supporting his local semi-professional football club with the start of the 2017-18 season less than three weeks away.

He said: "We are at Yorkshire Payments very much a company that wants to back everything surrounding the company here in Brighouse and the football club fits the bill, nicely."

A Town spokesman said: "Chairman Charles Tolley said he was very pleased that such a vibrant and growth company was coming on board with Brighouse Town and he looked forward to a lasting and happy partnership with Yorkshire Payments."

Town's previous stadium sponsor, Dual Seal Glass of Huddersfield, are also set to continue advertising with the club as well as sponsoring Brighouse Rangers ARLFC.
