Stocksbridge Park Steels secure immediate future by announcing new sponsorship deal
Stocksbridge Park Steels have secured their immediate future by agreeing a two-year sponsorship deal with Eco-Power Environmental Ltd.
The Northern Premier League South/East Division club launched a determined effort to secure fresh sponsorship following the premature end to last season due to Covid-19.
"When the season abruptly came to an end and long term sponsorship agreements finished, the club’s fortunes looked bleak,” said a club statement.
“But due to the amount of publicity the club have generated, via social media and the press, several people had shown an interest in supporting the club.
"We look forward to working in partnership with Eco-Power Environmental Ltd.
"We now have a solid platform to build on and ensure we have a club and teams representing Stocksbridge to be proud of and have ambitions to play at the highest level possible.”
Louis Calders, group commercial director for Eco-Power Environmental Ltd, said: “Our ambition for the club is quite simple, we want to get the club on a positive footing both on and off the pitch.
"We can see the great work that Graham [Furness] the chairman and Roger [Gissing] the commercial manager are doing.
"It’s clear they’ve got a real passion for the club and are great custodians but operating in very difficult conditions, particularly of late.
"We want to support them to keep the club sustainable and hopefully realise the club’s and supporters’ aspirations.”
