BRAY WANDERERS were celebrating on two fronts last Friday evening as they announced an exciting new sponsorship deal with Volkswagen and Sinnott Autos hours before picking up their first league win of the season.
The venture is a one year deal which will see Sinnott Autos as the main shirt sponsor of the Seagulls.
Wanderers' jerseys for the victory over the Students proudly displayed the Volkswagen symbol with Sinnott Autos' name embroidered beneath the famous German company's calling card.
Simon Elliott, group managing director of Volkswagen Group Ireland commented on the sponsorship, saying: 'Together with Sinnott Autos, we are thrilled to be sponsoring Bray Wanderers - it's a club that stands out to us with a strong and memorable national heritage. Similar to our Sligo Rovers sponsorship, this is a direction that the Volkswagen Group has wanted to explore for some time now. We are committed to giving back to local Irish communities and what better way than to do so than supporting great local clubs such as Bray Wanderers.'
Paul Sinnott from Sinnotts Autos echoed Elliot's sentiments: 'We are delighted to sponsor our local club Bray Wanderers and wish them the very best of luck in the current season.'
Seagulls supremo Pat Devlin warmly welcomed the new deal and is looking forward to working in synch with the motor companies. 'We are delighted to be associated with the Volkswagen Group and Sinnott Autos and are looking forward to a very good and exciting partnership in the future. Bray Wanderers is an integral part of the community in Bray and Co. Wicklow and it is a great boost for the club that one of Wicklow's best known company's is now our main sponsor. We are confident that the partnership will be a very successful one for the club.'
