A football team enjoying its first season back in the JD Welsh Premier League has secured a third consecutive sponsorship deal from Jones Bros Civil Engineering UK.
Caernarfon Town FC’s senior players will wear the Jones Bros’ logo on their polo shirts and tracksuits as part of the renewed partnership.
The leading civil engineering firm has also purchased a pitch-side board at the club’s Oval ground, which regularly welcomes more than 1,000 spectators on match days.
The club is playing in the top flight for the first time since 2008, and a good start to their campaign has raised hopes of qualification for the 2019/20 UEFA Europa League.
Caernarfon Town also organises regular community projects for children as part of its Football in the Community initiative, run by club captain and former Everton and Wales Under 23 player, Nathan Craig.
In addition to supporting the local club, Jones Bros is preparing to start work on the Caernarfon and Bontnewydd bypass in a joint venture with Balfour Beatty.
The bypass will be constructed to connect the Goat roundabout on the A499/A487 junction to the Plas Menai roundabout, reducing congestion in Caernarfon town centre.
Phil Jones, commercial manager at Caernarfon Town said: “This sponsorship means a lot to the club, as we share Jones Bros’ values of employing local people.
“Although this is a first team partnership, the investment will be filtered down into our academy, helping ensure our youth players receive high quality coaching.
“Jones Bros are a well known company in the area, and we’re looking forward to seeing work start on the Caernarfon and Bontnewydd bypass which will help bring employment and prosperity to the town.”
Hefin Lloyd Davies, contracts director at Jones Bros, said: “We’re pleased to be backing Caernarfon Town, as the club is a real community hub with impressive attendance figures and a growing academy.
“The Jones Bros logo looks brilliant on the shirts and tracksuits, and we wish manager Sean Eardley and his side all the best in their quest for European glory!”
Established in the 1950s, Jones Bros is now being run by the second and third generations of the founding family.
