A TOWN football club has scored a four-figure deal with a new sponsor, the biggest in the club's history.

Willington AFC has announced S&A Builders Merchants as sponsors of the new home strip from now until the end of the 2019/20 season.

The company has branches in Barnard Castle and Crook and already sponsors the away strip.

S&A Crook branch manager Andrew Howard said: "When I saw that the home strip was up for grabs it was a no-brainer."

Adding that he "liked the direction the club are moving in."

Willington AFC chairman Richard Tremewan said was excited about the deal and the interest businesses are taking in advertising on social media.

The new kit will be unveiled to fans in the next few weeks.
