Malvern Town Women FC sign shirt deal with ‘historic football shirts’
MALVERN Town Women FC have signed a new shirt sponsorship deal with local company, Historic Football Shirts, for their first season.
Based in Malvern and owned by Malvern Town FC manager Shane Jackson, Historic Football Shirts is the home of original and rare football shirts sourced from around the world and have achieved a widespread reputation.
The team is resurrected after six years without a women’s team at the club and manager Mark Taylor insisted it was important the right deal was done.
“I’m thrilled with this deal,” Taylor said.
“The club worked hard to find the right sponsor; we wanted an organization with genuine enthusiasm and interest in this project and the local community.
“We certainly found that in Shane (Jackson, Malvern Town FC manager) and Historic Football Shirts; his support is going to be huge for us.
“On behalf of all the players and staff, I would like to thank him for his commitment to us, as I would to the club as a whole, who have supported me in various ways.”
Jackson explained that sponsoring and supporting a local football club, particularly Malvern’s, was something he had always particularly enjoyed.
“I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to sponsor the women’s team in its inaugural season,” added Jackson.
“Since the inception of Historic Football Shirts my aim has always been to support local football and to be as involved as possible with Malvern Town when my commitments allow.
“It’s an honor to be manager of the club and it means a lot to be involved in the process of growing the club across all departments.
“As soon as I heard about the formation of a women’s team to represent the club, I wanted to show my support, especially to have two daughters of mine who have started to take an interest in football. I hope one day I will see Penny and Chloe play for the team!
“It gave meaning to this sponsorship deal and I will be extremely proud to see my company name on shirts throughout the coming season.”
