New shirt sponsor and a Good Friday trip to the seaside
by The Boy Holty
Bury FC will be proudly wearing the name of the Village Hotels on their shirts from the start of this current season. I was assuming that JD Sports would carry on (even though I didn't really like the King of Trainers logo) but this new deal has been described as the biggest in the club's history, which is what they said about JD so that can only be good for the club.
I used to work as a Cellarman for the Village hotel in Bury and I'd frequently see Bury players using the leisure and gym facilities, so that's a long-standing relationship which has had a big boost. Well done to all involved.
In other news, Bury's trip to Blackpool in March 2016 has been moved back 24 hours to Good Friday. That sound like a marvellous idea to me as this is the game I'm most looking forward to for the coming season. I can't wait. Beer may be involved.
