Tulips re­ceive a ma­jor fi­nan­cial boost

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Sport -

SPALD­ING have re­ceived a ma­jor fi­nan­cial boost in the shape of a five-fig­ure spon­sor­ship deal.

The am­bi­tious­tulips are to be backed by Front Door Prop­er­ties - a Bourne-based com­pany formed by Dar­ren Jarvis, the co-boss of their United Coun­ties League ri­vals, Black­stones, which has plans to ex­pand into the town.

It fol­lows hot on the heels of Spald­ing’s cap­ture of Posh leg­end Mar­cus Eb­don to be­come boss Pat Rayment’s num­ber two and the con­fir­ma­tion the club will re­main at their cur­rent Sir Hal­ley Ste­wart Play­ing Field base next sea­son.

The sta­dium has been ear­marked for de­mo­li­tion as part of a town cen­tre re­vamp but they have been given the green light to con­tinue there while press­ing ahead with plans to de­velop a new ground on the out­skirts of the town.

Thetulips have also forged a for­mal link with the thriv­ing Spald­ing Ath­letic ju­nior club that have teams from Un­der 6 to Un­der 18 level.

They will now also be known as Spald­ing United.
