GIGG LANE RENAMED IN MAJOR SPONSORSHIP DEAL
by The Boy Holty
Bury FC have just announced the biggest sponsorship deal in the club's history. With immediate effect, the ground will be renamed The JD Stadium, and the shirt sponsor from next season will be JD Sports.
JD Sports was founded in Bury in 1981 as John David Sports and now owns hundreds of stores nationwide. This goes to show that while everything appears to go to shit on the field, Stewart Day and his chums are tsaking the club from strength to strength off it and are still talking about taking us to the Championship.
This is a big day for the club, and whilst we should be sad that we will no longer hear references to Gigg Lane in the media, it can only be good for the club and the town. With a massive JD Sports superstore on the new Rock, this may expose the club to the townsfolk more effectively than has ever been done before.
Up the fucking Shakers.
