Still fly­ing the flag for Pais­ley

Paisley Daily Express - - Ladies Get In The Swing For Charity -

St Mir­ren FC will con­tinue to fly the flag for Pais­ley’s UK City of Cul­ture 2021 bid with an ex­ten­sion to a deal to keep its sta­dium name in place un­til the end of May — de­spite the town miss­ing out on the ti­tle to Coven­try.

The news is an­nounced as the club erected new sig­nage out­side the sta­dium and is an ex­ten­sion of the orig­i­nal two year two-year spon­sor­ship and sta­dium nam­ing rights deal struck with Ren­frew­shire Coun­cil in Novem­ber 2015.

The venue was re­named from St Mir­ren Park to mark Pais­ley’s bid.

Pais­ley 2021 bid di­rec­tor Jean Cameron said:“St Mir­ren are at the heart of the com­mu­nity and we are de­lighted to have their con­tin­ued sup­port.

“Pais­ley’s bid jour­ney has been a pos­i­tive one and will con­tinue.

“The Pais­ley 2021 sta­dium forms part of this legacy and keeps the name go­ing.”

St Mir­ren di­rec­tor Tony Fitzpatrick added: “The for­tunes of the town and the club are in­ter­linked and we are de­lighted to con­tinue with our sup­port of Pais­ley 2021.”
