Next Saturday – 3pm Kick Off

February 26th, 2017 Comments off
So there is light at the end of the tunnel…... Not exactly a reference to that brilliant win against old rivals Tynedale but more a warning that, as the daylight hours extend, next Saturday, the match against Harrogate is our first 3pm kick off of 2017.

So get to The Avenue early because we think that there may be a few folk there to watch 11th play 12th in National League 2 North. Should be a cracker!

The proposal covers two specially badged match balls with the Sponsors logo for all the fifteen 1st XV home league matches, practise balls similarly badged and two mounted presentation balls, one for the Sponsor and one for the Clubhouse.

This of course lends itself to maximum publicity on a home match day through a full page advert in the match day programme and exposure on the website.
