ACADEMY: Local company sponsors Academy age groups

Solar Maintenance Services take pride of place

3 September 2017

Carlisle United are delighted to confirm that Solar Maintenance Services will be sponsoring our Academy for the next two seasons, with their logo set to feature on the front of the playing shirts and training kit worn by our young players.

James McLinden, Managing Director of Solar Maintenance Services, has sponsored the Academy for the last two seasons and has also committed to providing further support by attracting additional sponsorship for 'Back of Shirt’ sponsor opportunities for each individual age group - any businesses interested in this please contact the Commercial Department for more details.

Sales and Marketing Director Phil King said: “James has been a long term supporter and sponsor of the club in a number of ways, and it’s great that he’s continuing his sponsorship of the Academy for a third and fourth year.

“Commercial support like this is vital for the club, and in particular for the Academy as it puts money back into youth development and supports what the coaches are trying to achieve with the young players.

“It is also a great vehicle for James to get some visibility for the new arm of his business, and the logo looks great on the front of the shirts.”

Solar Maintenance Services Managing Director James McLinden said: “I am delighted with the continued relationship with the club and in particular the academy. I am a strong believer in youth development and see it as the future of a club like ours. My family and company are happy to be involved and will continue to support the Club in any way we can."

Youth Development Phase Coach Chris Blake said: “It’s fantastic for the Academy coaches and players to receive support like this. It makes things feel professional for the boys when they’re running out to play their games in Carlisle United shirts which have their own sponsor logo.

“We’d like to thank James and Solar Maintenance Systems for their sponsorship of the Academy. We’re doing everything we can to create a definite pathway for good young players to make it all the way through and that job is made easier when you have backing like this from a respected local businessman.”
