Mon 18th June 2018 | Eccleshall | By Ian Templeman
Eccleshall have announced that their main sponsor ClickDealer have agreed to continue their links with the club for the 2018/19 season.
Club Chairman Neil Washington, Secretary Jim Tunney and committee member John Martin met with Company Director Ollie Moxham, Head of Marketing Pip Moxham and Head of Sales Lee Rawlinson last Wednesday at the company’s offices and discussions were very positive.
Aside from continuing home and away kit sponsorship for the coming season, the company have agreed to match ball sponsorship for every home game, pitch side advertising and the battery replacement for the club defibrillator at Pershall Park.
ClickDealer Director, Ollie Moxham said: “It was really good to catch up with Neil, Jim and John and we were encouraged to hear about the continuing progression being driven forward at the club.
"We recognise all the effort being put in behind the scenes at Eccleshall and are looking forward to following the club’s progress through the new season and to continuing our sponsorship with them.
"Both myself and members of our staff will be looking to get along to Pershall Park and supporting the team. In hearing of the assistance needed with the club’s essential defibrillator equipment, we are more than happy, as part of the sponsorship deal, to ensure that this will be in tip-top condition if it ever needs to be called upon”.
For their part, the club will be helping to support ClickDealer’s charity initiative for Leighton Hospital Ward 17.
Known as the Child and Adolescent Unit, the ward provides planned and emergency care to babies, young children, young people and their families. Lee’s young son received dedicated medical care on the ward after contracting meningitis and is now on the road to recovery.
The company have a fundraising target and Eccleshall will be hosting an event at Pershall Park in August in support of this. Details are to be confirmed.
Club Secretary Jim Tunney said: “Sponsorship is the life blood of clubs at our level and ClickDealer have been very supportive since coming on board with us. Ollie, Gerry and their colleagues came along to games last season and we are very grateful for their continuing support for 2018/19.
"Their help with the club defibrillator is particularly appreciated. The local Eccleshall First Responders checked this over towards the end of the season and identified that the battery needed replacing. ClickDealer’s support with this will allow club funds to be directed elsewhere.
"Whilst doing our best to promote the company at every opportunity, we will do everything we can to ensure their charity event in August is a success. We look forward to our relationship with them continuing in the future”.
