Aldershot Build Bridges With New Shirt Sponsor
Tue 27th Aug 2013 | Football Sponsorship
Bridges Estate Agents will become Aldershot Town FC’s new shirt sponsors on a three-year deal.
Tony Raffermati and Carlo Stocchetti, joint owners of Bridges Estate Agents, said: “As fans of the club, and business owners within the community for 22 years, we are delighted to be sponsors of Aldershot Town FC.
“Success is defined in many different ways and we saw the relationship with Aldershot Town Football Club as a responsibility to act and work with like-minded people to get this Club buzzing again.
“We cannot express how proud and ecstatic we are to play a small part in the future of Aldershot Town FC and we hope we can put our local rivals to the sword today and enjoy a good win!”
Aldershot Town chairman Shahid Azeem said: “We are delighted as this is a perfect fit between ourselves and Bridges. We would of course like to thank Tim Elliott of EBB who has sponsored the shirts previous occasions. He will be having a break for now but I know he will still be supporting the club and we are grateful of all that he represents and stands for.”
“We had several approaches from various companies looking to have their name on our shirts. Many of them were gaming or money lending companies which we did not feel fitted in with the ethics and morals of how we are trying to run this club. We were determined to wait until we met with someone who wanted to work with the club in the way we thought best.
“On speaking to Tony and Carlo we realised that they are totally committed to the Shots and to the town of Aldershot and the wider borough of Rushmoor. They are local people, they care for the club and they want to be involved. They have several branches around the area and we are very grateful to them for their support and the aspect of marketing that they also will bring to the club.
“We look forward to working with Bridges Estate Agents over the next three years and know that they will be a real asset to Aldershot Town FC.”
“Bridges are a big company around the area and we’re grateful that they want to come on board and be a part of what we’re doing,” said Aldershot Town manager Andy Scott. “It’s all coming together, there’s a lot of work being done off the pitch and behind the scenes, and this is another important factor in helping the Club to push forward. We hope to have a really strong relationship with Bridges and that it will be mutually beneficial.”
