WE’RE absolutely thrilled to announce long-time backers Gaming Direct Ltd have signed a new five-year-deal with the Magpies.
The Blackburn-based firm’s sponsorship, which includes continued naming rights to the Pilling Lane stand, pitchside boards, match sponsorships and an advert in Magpie Review, will take their support of the football club to an unbelievably brilliant 20 years.
My wife Julie introduced me to non-league football 18 years ago and I’m just a big fan of the club now and always will be. I wanted to sponsor the Frank Powell Stand firstly so the memory of Frank stays at the club, as he was a huge fan and season ticket holder for more than fifty years. Also, so his family can see his name at every home game and think of him, and secondly if it helps the club then that makes it even better – Kevin Hinds (Managing Director, Gaming Direct Ltd)
