GSE Group To Sponsor Hythe Town FC
Hythe Town FC have completed a major new signing ahead of the start of the new football season after agreeing a two-year sponsorship deal with GSE Group.
The deal provides the Ryman League Division One South club with an undisclosed sum from the Hythe-based building, civil engineering and construction experts in return for main sponsorship rights.
The agreement will also help the club on the field as well as off it, as first team players and coaches will be able to use the facilities of the Hythe Imperial Leisure Club, inside the GSE Group-owned Hythe Imperial Hotel and Spa, free of charge.
The sponsorship deal will see The Reds’ new home shirts bear the name ‘Hythe Imperial Hotel’, while ‘GSE Group’ will feature on the away kit and first team tracksuits. ‘Imperial Green Homes’ will adorn the back of both strips.
Peter Cuffe, Commercial Manager at Hythe Town FC, said - “We are delighted to have Hythe Imperial Hotel and GSE Group as our main sponsors, and feel that we can achieve great things together over the next two years which will benefit both parties as well as the local area.”
John Dowsett, Hythe Town FC Chairman commented - "This partnership can bring tremendous synergy to both parties, there is now the possibility of a range of unique football, golf & accommodation packages which is also unique for a club of our size."
Josh Healey, Contracts Surveyor at GSE Group, added - “As a Hythe-based business, we are immensely proud to show our support of the town’s football club by becoming main sponsors for the next two years.”
Hythe Town kick off their pre-season campaign this Saturday when Ryman Premier side Margate are the visitors to Reachfields, kick-off 3pm. There will be a 'Happy Hour' after the game, which will be followed by a supporters & volunteers get-together from 6pm, including the chance to meet new Chairman, John Dowsett and new Commercial Manager, Peter Cuffe.
