One of Turf Moor’s hospitality lounges has been given a Gee-up with the help of sponsorship from an award-winning Burnley business.

The 1882 Lounge, situated in the Bob Lord Stand, will now be known as the Neville Gee 1882 Lounge.

The recruitment company has agreed a two-year deal to have its name associated with the lounge, which also carries the year the football club was formed.

Donnie Doran, director of Neville Gee, said: “We are delighted to have this iconic part of the Bob Lord Stand named the Neville Gee 1882 Lounge.

“After nine consecutive years as a sponsor in the lounge we feel that our long partnership with the club has been strengthened.

“As HR advisors to Burnley Football Club we look forward to supporting the Board of Directors and staff to strengthen the good working practices and staff development at the club.

Anthony Fairclough, director of Commercial Affairs at Burnley FC, added: “Neville Gee has been a sponsor of the club for many years and this heightened sponsorship promotes how effective club sponsorships and hospitality can help your business in this negative economic climate.”

Neville Gee, finalists at the recent Burnley Business Awards in the Small Business of the Year category is one of the area’s longest established and most successful recruitment companies.
