Rathfriland FC have just announced the renewal of a new two year sponsorship deal with Milestone Service Station and will continue as the main sponsor until the close of the 2015 / 16 season.

This will be the fifth and sixth years of continued financial support to the club by local businness owner Tom McAvoy. This relationship has been growing in recent years and it is win win for both club and business.

Rathfriland FC proudly display the “Milestone” logo at the main club entrance, at pitchside, on the first team’s shirts and on a number of the club tracksuits.

It certainly is a time of expansion for both Rathfriland FC on and off the pitch, as well as Milestone with redevelopment of the business.

Rathfriland FC’s assistant Commercial Manager Mervyn Groves, explained, “It is great to cement and continue the growing partnership between the club and this local business. We have been shown great support by Tom and his business and I would ask that everyone associated with the club continue to repay the Milestone for the way they have assisted the club. This is a two way project and the club will be increasing its efforts to support Tom and his team for the courage and faith they have shown in the football club.”
