Horncastle Town have received a double boost ahead of what promises to be one of the most exciting seasons in their proud history.

The ambitious club has secured a major new sponsorship deal with one of the town’s biggest companies, Polypipe.

Town officials have also confirmed their new-look clubhouse should be completed in time for the start of the new season in August.

Club chairman Colin Low said: “It is a very exciting time for everyone and we are delighted with the way things are progressing.”

The Polypipe deal means the majority of the club’s junior and senior sides will be wearing new ‘Jako’ kits next season.

Once deals with other sponsors have run out, all the clubs sides will benefit from the agreement.

It is the first time in town’s history that a single company will sponsor all the kits.

Club spokesman Andrew Cotton said: “Polypipe are a fantastic business which does great work in the local community, as well as being one of the largest employers in Horncastle.

“We are delighted with the news and delighted they have agreed to support the club in such a manner.”

Polypipe spokesman John Bush said: “We are proud to sponsor the club.

“We were particularly keen to do something in the community that would affect a large group of people and felt that being able to sponsor the shirts from U10s right through to the senior squad was the ideal opportunity.’”

Meanwhile, the new clubhouse is due to be completed on August 8 with the opening set for the Sunday and Monday or the August Bank Holiday weekend.

Further details will be announced shortly.

The club’s players are due to return to pre-season training on Wednesday, June 25. Sessions will take place at Oaks Meadow on The Wong (7pm).

Any newcomers will be welcome at first team, reserve team and development team level.
