Burnley FC’s bid for top-flight football has won further support from one of the town’s leading companies.

The James Hargreaves Group is to continue its long association with Turf Moor after agreeing a new three-year deal to sponsor the main stand.

The James Hargreaves name has appeared proudly on the stand since it was built back in 1996.

Clarets’ boss Sean Dyche took time out to greet James Hargreaves Group managing director Gordon Rothwell and also visit the company’s bathroom showroom on nearby Todmorden Road to meet with staff.

Gordon said: “We have always enjoyed a fruitful partnership with Burnley FC and are delighted to be able to continue the stand sponsorship. The James Hargreaves Stand has become synonymous with Turf Moor over the last 18 years and this new contract will take the association beyond two decades.

“This is also a very exciting time for the club and its loyal supporters and we would like to wish Sean and the boys all the very best for the remainder of the season as they push for promotion.”

Sean said: “It’s a great result for us and we are indebted to the James Hargreaves Group for once again showing such solid support. To be a main line sponsor over what will be 20 consecutive seasons is a fantastic effort.

“It is a well-known name, not only locally but across the North of England, and it is very pleasing to know that companies of this size are right behind us.”

The James Hargreaves Group continues to expand apace with a portfolio of 36 plumbing depot branches and six bathroom showrooms from Stoke to Stockton and Blackpool to Hull.
