Hevey Building Supplies become Main Club Sponsor with AFC Rushden & Diamonds

AFC Rushden & Diamonds are delighted to announce that the club have agreed a deal with Hevey Building Supplies, which will see Northampton’s largest independent builders merchant increase their involvement with AFC R&D, for the remainder of this season and becoming the club’s Main Sponsor for the 2015-16 and 2016-17 seasons.

The new deal will see Hevey remain as main Home and Away shirt sponsors, but will also see their profile increase throughout the club with Hevey logos being displayed on the 2015-17 U21 playing kit, the first team training kit and on AFCRDTV, the club’s YouTube channel.

The Hevey logo will also feature on the front of the third kit which will be voted on by AFC Rushden & Diamonds members shortly, as well as on new advertising hoardings above the club’s Peter De Banke Terrace.

Neil Hemmington Chairman at Hevey said “As a local business we are committed to supporting the community in which we operate so we are delighted to deepen our relationship with the club. With the recent Premier League TV deal and the crazy numbers being agreed it is important to remember that our financial sponsorship at this level is crucial to the future of the club and we are excited about playing our part”

Mark Mulvey MD at Hevey continues “As a local builder’s merchant based in Northamptonshire, this increased sponsorship is part of our commitment to the county and we want to help “build” the club. We have been impressed with how the club has made Hevey feel so welcome and we look forward to developing our relationship further.”

AFC Rushden & Diamonds Chairman Ralph Burditt said “I am absolutely thrilled that Hevey have chosen to support our club for another two years.  It has been a pleasure to welcome them to games during this season and I look forward to continuing to do so next season and hopefully long into the future. Securing Hevey’s support is a vital component for the club in planning towards a successful 2015-16 on and off the pitch.”
