Burgess Hill Town FC Chairman Kevin Newell was delighted to announce this week that local business Ashdown Roofing Ltd. will continue to be the main sponsor of the Ryman South Champions for the 2015/16 season.

It will be the Burgess Hill based company’s fourth year as main sponsor having first come on board at the same time when Ian Chapman took over as manager of the Hillians.

The Chairman said “We are delighted to have the renewed support of Ashdown Roofing. It is important that our football club engages as much as possible with the local community.

“We greatly value the support of local businesses without which we would be unable to sustain a team at this level. This never goes unnoticed or unappreciated”.

General Manager John Rattle added “Our relationship with Paul and Ashdown Roofing Ltd has been fundamental in the club’s success. Not only has a sponsor, they have helped us enormously in the maintenance of the clubhouse roof over the past four years. This has allowed the clubhouse to be a vital local community asset, as well as being an essential part of the supporters ‘match day experience’ when they visit BHTFC”.

Ashdown Roofing’s Paul Clifford said “Ashdown Roofing Ltd are very happy to continue as Burgess Hill Town FC shirt sponsor for another season. This will be the fourth season we have supported the club in this way. It is a club that is going forward both on and off the field and AR Ltd are proud to be a part of it”.
