Kevin Knox, manager of Blyth Rangers Seniors, said: “We are delighted to now have part of our first team kit sponsored by Bellway North East.

“Having already sponsored some of our youth teams, this is the first time they have sponsored our first senior team and we hope this will be the start of a lasting relationship.

“Bellway has helped Blyth and surrounding towns grow and develop strong communities through donations like this.

“Blyth Rangers always strive to be the best on and off the pitch.

“We represent not only our club, but also our city and all of our sponsors, which now include Bellway, and we hope they will all be proud.”

Emma Chesterton, Bellway North East Sales Director, said: “We were delighted Kevin contacted us and we were able to support Blyth Rangers FC with first team sponsorship.

“We are proud of our commitment to local communities in the areas we build and try to help wherever we can.

“The players are looking great in their new hoodies which will really come in handy now that the winter months have truly arrived.”
