We are pleased to announce that we will again be the Proud Main Sponsors of Yate Town FC for the 2016 – 2017 season.

We enjoyed partnering with them last season and look forward to working with them again during this year’s campaign. Although the 1st team only managed a mid-table finish, the under 18s had treble winning success (league champions and two cups).

All their teams will be wearing shirts featuring the Orchard logo so let’s hope the 1st team have cup success with a game that features on Match of the Day. We can dream!

The 1st team league fixtures will include games against Hereford FC. This relatively new club was formed after the sad demise of FA Cup giant killers Hereford United. They play their home fixtures at the Edgar Street ground where the old Hereford beat Newcastle in the famous 1972 cup tie. They are well supported so there should be a large crowd and great atmosphere when they visit Yate (date not yet announced). There will also be home games versus many teams from around the South West including local rivals – Mangotsfield.

As well as sponsoring Yate Town, Orchard will be helping promote them locally to encourage other businesses to get involved. There are many options available including the rental of their Hospitality Suite, Match Day Sponsorship and Match Ball Sponsorship. They are also running a draw for a business to win the naming rights of the stadium. Please let us know if you would like the club to contact you regarding that or any of their advertising and sponsorship options.
