Stamford AFC has signed a deal which will see the international Stamford-based company Cummins Generator Technologies become the club’s community partner.
Cummins will provide annual investment to support the Daniels’ community activities over a long-term arrangement, enhancing their existing programme.
Paul Pepper, Stamford AFC commercial manager, said: “It is fantastic to be able to announce Cummins as our community partner.
“Their generous support will benefit all Stamford AFC teams including our football development centre and particularly their community activities in and around Stamford and Rutland.”
Under the terms of the partnership the main stand of the new Zecco stadium at Borderville will become the Cummins stand. The firm will also be the headline sponsors of the community pitches at Borderville sports centre.
Ian Evley, chairman of Stamford AFC football development centre, said: “We are thrilled that a local company with an international reputation for excellence has chosen us to demonstrate their support of, and commitment to, the local community.”
The logo of Cummins Generator Technologies will appear on the front of the home shirts of all of the club’s youth sides, the Young Daniels.
Gareth Hopkinson, Stamford plant manager at Cummins, said: “As part of our on-going commitment to the town, Cummins is extremely proud of its role as community partner of this new project that will provide excellent facilities to many members of the Stamford community.
“We are delighted to be involved and able to continue improving the communities that we live in.”
Stamford AFC is moving from its Kettering Road ground to a new ground at Borderville in September.
The new ground and complex is a joint project between the football club, New College Stamford and Burghley House Preservation Trust.
