MALVERN Town Women FC have signed a new shirt sponsorship deal with local company, Historic Football Shirts, for their maiden season.

Based in Malvern and owned by Malvern Town FC Director, Shane Jackson, Historic Football Shirts is the home of original and rare football shirts sourced from all over the world and have gained a wide-spread reputation.

The team is being resurrected after six years without a women's team at the club and manager Mark Taylor insisted it was important that the right deal was struck.

“I am over-joyed with this deal," said Taylor.

"The club has been working hard to get the right sponsor in place; we wanted an organisation with genuine enthusiasm and interest in this project and the local community.

“We have certainly found that in Shane (Jackson, Malvern Town FC director) and Historic Football Shirts; his support is going to be massive for us.

"On behalf of all the players and staff, I’d like to thank him for his commitment to us as indeed I would to the club as a whole, who have been most supportive in many different ways.”

Jackson explained that sponsoring and supporting a local football club, especially one in Malvern, was something he has always been particularly keen on.

“I am delighted to have the opportunity to sponsor the Women’s team in their inaugural season,” added Jackson.

“Since setting up Historic Football Shirts it has always been my aim to support local football and be involved as much as I can with Malvern Town when my commitments allow.

“It’s an honour to be a Director of the club and means a lot to be involved in the process of the growth of the club in all departments.

“As soon as I heard about the formation of a Women’s team to represent the club, I was keen to show my support, especially having two daughters of my own who have started to take an interest in football. Hopefully one day I’ll see Penny and Chloe play for the team!

“It made this sponsorship deal make sense and I will be extremely proud to see the name of my company on the shirts throughout the season ahead.”
