We hope the deal will further support the club and their new chairman Alex Chisholm as they continue with their development plans both on and off the field.
“Orion has a long tradition of investing in local sports teams and community projects. The side has a fantastic youth development programme which we’ve long admired. We hope the sponsorship will allow them to grow their already exciting youth programme.”
“The side has had a challenging season in a very competitive league however we hope we can offer further support off the field next season as we look to support a number of improvements to the grounds facilities and infrastructure, something that will not only benefit the club but also the traveling teams visiting the ground at Grant Street and the local community.”
Alex Chisholm the new Chairman of Clachnacuddin FC, said: “I’m delighted Orion have agreed to support the club for a further season. Orion has been associated with the club for a number of years and I’m delighted they are continuing their association with us.
