FC United’s new sponsor for this season is the Williams Group car dealership.

They take over from the Bhopal Medical Appeal but, in keeping with the club’s constitution, their logo won’t feature on the players’ shirts.

FC United general manager Andy Walsh said: “We are looking forward to our partnership with Williams, helping both of us to provide the north-west community with quality and excitement over the coming 12 months.

“This is a prestigious deal reflecting the fact that our fans, our team, and our inclusive goals, of community involvement, supporter control, and a winning team, are gaining the respect of the business and wider community.”

Williams marketing director Nick Cook said: “We believe that the relationship we build with FC United can benefit both parties and look forward to working with them.”

The Reds have a score to settle tomorrow when they aim to continue their 100 per cent start to the season against Flixton in the North-West Counties Division One. Flixton took four points off United last season, also gaining promotion. Kick-off at Gigg Lane is 7.45pm.
