Atkinson Building Contractors are delighted and proud to be committed to the support a multiyear sponsorship programme with Penrith Football Club.
The company, established over 30 years ago by Steve Atkinson, has maintained strong support and commitment to the success club across 3 decades with strong and longstanding friendships, connections and football community spirit being sustained as a result.
The club has always been close to Steve and at the ‘heart’ of the company. 7 staff members of have played for the club, including Paul Pattinson and Steve Atkinson himself with Mala Wilson, Steve Pickering, Martyn Currie and Grant Davidson all Captaining the first team over the years. The requirement for these lads to leave work early to attend train or play mid-week games or travel to away games on Saturdays has never been questioned plus being unable to work due to football injuries never challenged!
As part of the new partnership, the new 1st Team home and away strip was presented by Company Director Neil McKaskie, displaying the company logo which has become well known in Penrith and across Cumbria. In addition to this, a rebranding of the ‘Blue’s’ (albeit they now play in red and white!) stadium and stand is planned over the coming months.
