Kershaw Group signs up for record 10th year of Cambridge United sponsorship

May 01 2009

Major Cambridge United sponsor Kershaw Group has agreed another two years as a major sponsor of Cambridge United – just days before the vital Wembley game.

The new deal will see Kershaw sponsor the team’s away shirts for the 9th and 10th consecutive years.

That breaks the local record for shirt sponsorship, set by Kershaw when it signed a previous two year deal in 2007.

Kershaw Group’s managing director Mark Finlay said: “In a week like this when Cambridge United is potentially 90 minutes away from league football, we wanted to show we are fully behind the team.

“And there seemed no better way of doing that than signing for a new two year deal. Everyone at Kershaw Group wishes Gary and the team the best of luck on Sunday, and many of us will be there to watch.”

Gary Atyes, Business Development Manager for Cambridge United, added: “With the current economic climate this shows a tremendous commitment from Kershaw which is typical of them as a company.

“The club is delighted they’ve signed up and we are working hard on a number of other exciting deals, hopefully to be announced in the near future.”

A new away shirt will now be designed and revealed later in the summer.

Kershaw Group has its head office in Cambridge, and can track parts of its history back to 1887.

Divisions include domestic insulation, heating and asbestos removal company Kershaw Contracting Service; mechanical services company Kershaw Mechanical Services; and metal roofing and cladding firm T R Freeman.

The group is always heavily involved in the local community.
