Hamworthy United FC are storing up some good cheer for the rest of the season with a new sponsor – Store & Secure.
The new ‘Store & Secure’ stand behind one of the goals is now resplendent in the local company’s bright branding.
The football facility, which is also home to the Dorset FA, has a newly re-laid 4G pitch and the club is preparing to rocket up the leagues.
Forced to pull out of the Southern League Division 1 South in October due to ground-grading issues, the Hammers have now satisfied the sport’s authorities and have their sights set on a return to the higher echelons of local football.
Store & Secure is run by ‘storage sisters’ Lucy and Sophie Maidman who were brought up nearby, and provides all types or storage as well as serviced offices.
Lucy said: “Our huge storage facility is just up the road from Hamworthy United and we wanted to support local charities and sports.
“The club wanted a sponsor for the stand behind the goal and we thought it was a perfect fit.
“I know the club is used every day of the week which means lots of people seeing our name.
“We were brought up close to the ground and the family has always been involved with the club.”
Hammers’ President Bruce Scammell said: “The stand was built about 20 years ago in memory of Irvin Brown, and we have added a plaque to note the fact.
“But we wanted a sponsor for it and Store & Secure were kind enough to offer.
“The income will help us achieve our aim of rising through the leagues now that we have added a brand new stand to ensure the ground satisfies the league requirements.”
