THE Dons have announced that local company New Image Contracts Ltd have become the club’s latest sponsor who will feature on the club’s new playing strip for 2013.
Richard Christison, managing director of New Image Contracts, has been a member of the Dons’ Advisory Group since March but has links with the club dating back to the mid 1990s when he was a director and has been heavily involved with match day sponsorship throughout the 2012 season in Co-operative Championship One.
Richard’s company also played an instrumental part in the significant capture of Challenge Cup winner Paul Cooke when he pledged to pay the remaining monies that the club were short of to seal Cooke’s move through the Dons Squadbuilder fund.
During this time New Image has carried out a large number of passive fire protection, industrial painting, fire stopping, air sealing, taping and jointing, decorating, and floor coating contracts, which have included working on some of the UK’s most prestigious projects including the new Wembley Stadium and our very own Keepmoat Stadium.
Dons’ chief executive Carl Hall, said: “We’re thrilled Richard has stepped up his involvement with the club after being a valuable member of the Dons Advisory Group for the last eight months.”
“Richard has strong links with the Dons and, as a former director, has witnessed many ups and downs in its history and fully appreciates the value of success we’ve enjoyed this season. Club sponsorship is an integral part of the Dons business make-up and the game of rugby league.”
