Blyth Spartans are delighted to announce that F. Southern are sponsoring the Kingsway Stand at Croft Park.
It will be officially named “The F. Southern Stand”, and the company signage will have high prominence and will cover the full length of the stand. This is part of a sponsorship package that will see F. Southern come on board as club partners.
Club Vice Chairman Kevin Scott commented, “We are extremely grateful to F. Southern for their valued support, especially in these challenging times, and as ever, it’s even more appreciated that a local business with a regional/national customer base is supporting the club in this way.
Blyth Spartans appreciates the fact that Stephen Southern and Paul Norvell (who now run the business set up by Stephen’s father, and longtime Spartans supporter, Frank), approached us to see how they could help support the club. The fact that they had no hesitation in taking up the opportunity to sponsor the Kingsway Stand demonstrates their commitment to the Club and the community we represent.”
On the partnership, Paul said, “When we heard the club were looking for a sponsor for the Kingsway Stand we immediately felt this was an opportunity we couldn’t miss. As an established Blyth company we are, of course, very proud of this town and to be associated with Blyth Spartans is a real honour.
Stephen added, “Blyth Spartans have been a part of our upbringing and since being a child I remember attending the games with various family members. It’s an honour to be part of this great club and we jumped at the chance to support Blyth Spartans with our sponsorship. My dad, Frank, has been a fan of the club for over 50 years and continues to attend when he can so it seemed fitting when Kevin and Tony Platten (Chairman) suggested we call it the F Southern stand.”
