Bute firm Delta Foods Ltd has extended its backing for football on the island in a new sponsorship deal with Rothesay Brandane AFC.

The £1,500 donation will be used to help with the cost of polo shirts, kit bags and new strips for the island’s amateur football team.

Andy Wallace from Delta Foods presented a cheque to club president David Meldrum in Rothesay on Monday.

The company, which supplies frozen food products to the food service industry, has provided sponsorship to Bute Youth Football for several years, but with the graduation of several BYFC under-17 players to the Brandanes’ ranks this season, the firm decided to continue its support for the beautiful game on the island by giving its backing to the adult club.

The Delta Foods name will appear alongside that of the Golfers Bar on the Danes’ new kit.
