West Midlands Regional League Division One Wem Town Football Club has unveiled local developer Guild Homes as a new sponsor of the club.
The deal will see Guild Homes appear on the back of the club’s shirts as well as their training kits.
Jeff Guest, managing director of Guild Homes, said: “We have been warmly welcomed by the residents of Wem following the launch of our new apartments at the Mill, and we wanted to show our thanks by investing in something that is an important part of the community - Wem Town F.C.
“Football is a sport that communities can really rally around and that’s the sort of atmosphere we want to create at Wem Mill, which is why this sponsorship is such a great match.”
Shaun Astley, chairman of Wem Town F.C. comments: “We were happy to secure such a great sponsor in Guild Homes. The company has invested a lot into the community already, with the restoration of Wem Mill and its sponsorship of the football club shows that it is committed to the town.
“Guild’s support has meant we have been able to supply the players with brand new training kit, which is a real boost for the club and sets us up nicely for the rest of the season. We would hope that this sponsorship will act as a catalyst for other local firms and townspeople to come forward and support the club in a similar way.”
Wem Town currently sit 14th in the West Midlands Regional League Division One.
