Alfreton Town Council has continued its long support of Alfreton Town Football Club with further 12-month extension of sponsorship with a grant of £3,000.
The sponsorship, amongst other benefits, provides free of charge admission for each home League game for ten members of local groups, clubs, schools and community organisations in the town.
Any group interested in attending a future fixture should contact the council on 01773 520032 for further information. The town Ccouncil will also be the main matchday sponsor for a fixture later in the season and will be working with local groups and the club to make this a community event.
Alfreton Town Council leader Cllr Scott Walker, said: “The Town Council very much values the sponsorship of the club. Along with the national publicity for the town with the town council’s name on the team’s shorts, and recognition in the matchday programme and around the ground, ten individuals each week get chance to watch the highest level of non-league football, which they may otherwise not have the chance to do.”
Cllr John Walker, town mayor, concluded: “I have been a member of the town council since 1991 and have been delighted to have seen the town council support the football club over this time. I hope those who benefit from the free tickets will enjoy their visit and return again to watch other matches, and that the town council’s sponsorship will aid the continued progression of the club.”
