Phil McGuire's St Andrews United squad recently got the chance to thank their two kit sponsors for the next two seasons.
Two years ago Abbeyford Leisure and Barnetts of St Andrews signed up to support the local football club in this way, in a move that saw Barnetts' name appear on the home kit, with the Abbeyford Leisure brand displayed on the away kit. A “gentleman’s agreement” reached at the time between the principal sponsors meant that the assignment of kits would be reversed two years later. And so it has transpired, with Abbeyford Leisure on the home shirts (pictured) and Barnetts on the away.
Saints' Commercial Manager John Drysdale commented: “Our football club is delighted to be associated with such ‘blue riband’ companies, and will do everything in our power over the next two years to justify their faith in St Andrews Utd.”
Abbeyford Leisure Director, Kevan Lodge, said: "We're proud to support St Andrews United and the wider local community in this way. Our business is holiday parks and the great outdoors and we're keen to encourage active lifestyles which complements our Abbeyford Active programme."
