Pete Ward, Chief Executive of Young’s Seafood Limited, commented, “I’m very happy to announce Young’s Seafood Limited’s continued support for Grimsby Town Football Club. We’ve supported our local team for over a decade now and the partnership is incredibly important to us. As part of our Fish for Life Corporate Social Responsibility Programme, Young’s Seafood is committed to playing a positive role in the communities in which we are based and our relationship with the club is a key part of this commitment. As our award winning Corporate Social Responsibility Programme reaches it’s tenth anniversary this year, we’re thrilled to celebrate by opening the newly named Young’s Upper and Young’s Lower Stand at Blundell Park. We look forward to proudly watching our team continue on the path to success next season.”
John Fenty, Director, Grimsby Town FC, said “Grimsby Town Football Club are delighted that Young’s Seafood Limited will continue to support the Mariners for season 2016-17. It will be the 13th season that the local seafood giant will be the Club’s Official Sponsor and we are honoured to have such a well-known brand give their support to the Club and the wider community.”
The announcement follows the successful partnership between Young’s Seafood and Grimsby Town over the Christmas holidays when the club players stepped in to support the Young’s Seafood Cleethorpes Winter Wonderland stall. At December’s first ever Cleethorpes Winter Wonderland, the two helped to attract over 30,000 people to the volunteer-led event. Young’s Seafood ran a hugely successful stall with the help of local volunteers and GTFC’s top players who met with local fans and raffled off signed shirts and other prizes.
