SPL side St Mirren FC has agreed a shirt and short sponsorship deal with local taxi firm Compass Private Hire.
The twelve month deal will see Compass Private Hire agreed feature on the back of the club’s shirts and shorts for the duration of the 2010/2011 season.
Compass is owned by former St Mirren player and captain Tony Fitzpatrick. Speaking of the deal to back his ex club Fitzpatrick said: “We do sponsorship in other areas and thought, ‘How can we put something back into the community?’
“Now to me, St Mirren is the community of Paisley and Renfrewshire, so it was an easy choice. St Mirren has been my whole life. “
Campbell Kennedy, St Mirren commercial manager, added: “We are delighted with this sponsorship arrangement. Everyone is fully aware of the financial climate at the moment and the fact that we have now sourced a fresh income stream is just great.”
