After a gap of two years, Leengate Valves have agreed a new sponsorship deal to once again become Chesterfield’s ‘back of shirt’ sponsor for the first-team kit.
The deal, which covers the 2017/18 and 2018/19 seasons, will also feature the Leengate Valves logo on the team’s pre-match warm-up kit.
Chesterfield commercial manager Jim Brown said: "It's great to see Leengate Valves on the back of our shirts once again, especially as it takes them to their tenth year as a sponsor. Steve and his family have been major sponsors and supporters of the club from our days at Saltergate and their support is very much appreciated.”
Leengate Valves’ managing director, Steve Pickering, said: “It’s nice to get the ten years of having the name on the back of the shirt, especially as I’ve been a supporter for over 50 years.
“We’re a national business so to have the name on the shirt means we get the name around the country as the team travels, which is great. We’ve been fortunate in the last few years that we’ve had two appearances at Wembley, the promotion campaigns and other televised games.”
Leigh Pickering, Leengate Valves’ commercial director, added: “We’ve had some great times and to see the name out there gets us noticed around the country!
“People call us and say that they’ve seen us on the television or at their local match and it’s great that we can associate with that.”
