Civil engineers renew partnership with Caernarfon Town Football Club25th Sep 2017

A leading civil engineering firm has continued its support for an ambitious Gwynedd-based football club.

Jones Bros is sponsoring Caernarfon Town FC with the purchase of new tracksuits for all first and reserve team players in continuation of a partnership with the club started in 2016.

All players will wear the tracksuits, which display the Jones Bros logo, before and after matches, in addition to when they carry out work in the local community.

Jones Bros has been selected as the contractor to build the proposed Bontnewydd-Caernarfon bypass, in a joint venture with Balfour Beatty.

Caernarfon are recognised as one of the leading teams in the second tier of Welsh football and are tipped to challenge for this year’s Huws Gray Alliance league title.

Last season the club, also known as the Canaries, were awarded special recognition from the Football Association of Wales for reaching the JD Welsh Cup semi-finals for the first time in 29 years.

In addition to their senior team, Caernarfon run junior and youth teams as part of its FAW accredited Academy and the reserves will this season play in the Welsh Premier Development League.

The club runs regular community projects to promote football and a healthy lifestyle for children as part of its Football in the Community initiative, run by former Everton and Wales Under 23 player Nathan Craig.

Paul Evans, media officer at Caernarfon Town said: “Sponsorship really helps our club continue its work at senior and youth levels, so we’re thrilled to have Jones Bros’ continued support this season.

“It’s a really exciting time for Caernarfon at the moment as we look to challenge for the league title in what is likely to be a very competitive Huws Gray Alliance.

“We have a ‘Un Clwb’ philosophy to operate as one club for everyone in the area, and thanks to sponsors including Jones Bros we can continue building Caernarfon Town.”

Bryn Williams, public liaison officer for Jones Bros’ upcoming work on the Caernarfon bypass, added: “The tracksuits look brilliant. The club has many similarities to Jones Bros as they invest in their young members through their community projects. We invest in our staff’s development through our accredited training centre and supportive work environment to ensure our teams are highly skilled and able to deliver quality work for our clients.”

“We’ll be following the Canaries’ exploits closely and wish them all the best for the 2017/18 season.”

The outcome of a public inquiry into the preferred route for the 9.7km by-pass is expected soon.

Founded in the 1950s and employing almost 350 people, Jones Bros has grown rapidly in the last decade. It is currently working on contracts in various sectors including the construction of waste management facilities, highways, flood and marine defence and renewable energy projects around the UK.
