Northampton Town are delighted to welcome Personal Track Safety Ltd (PTS), as the club's new back of shirt sponsor for 3 years with effect from July 1st 2018.
PTS are a Government approved and funded specialist training provider delivering apprenticeships, traineeships and accredited courses, based in Northampton with over 20 years' experience, operating nationally from their head office and training complex in Moulton.
"We are thrilled to welcome Personal Track Safety Ltd (PTS) as our new back of shirt sponsor and this is a perfect fit for us," said Commercial and Marketing Manager Caroline Lucy.
"With our proud record of working with and helping young people in the local community, as demonstrated by our two education centres and our highly successful partnership with the University of Northampton, adding the name of another highly regarded organisation who help all ages to the back of the shirt seemed a natural step for us.
"We also pride ourselves on the partnerships we have with locally based businesses and so this link up works for us on so many levels."
Matthew Joyce and Byron Thomas, owners and co-founders of PTS added: "We have been privileged to support hundreds of people nationally gain the skills they require to reach their goals and full potential, whether that be into further education, employment or upskilling individuals currently employed. PTS wants to focus on working with Northampton Town Football Club and its partners, so that people in the local community can benefit from the funding PTS has available. Local businesses working together creatively will assist with building stronger and safer local communities who are self reliant. We have a very important role to play in enabling local people to reach their full potential and the partnership between PTS and the Cobblers will bring added value to the great work and results already being achieved.
"The partnership will also include training in-house for Northampton Town Football Club stewards and staff and the club's partners, as well as being able to offer traineeship/apprenticeship programmes for local young people from across all sectors, which will both strengthen the work place and improve quality of life."
James Whiting, Chief Executive of Northampton Town Football Club said, “We are looking forward to working with PTS and are excited that we will carry their name on the back of our shirts for the next three years.
”This is a natural partnership for us and with both organisations working with a lot of young people, this seems a perfect link up.
"We have been impressed with the work PTS and its staff are doing, and we are proud to be linking up with them."
Current back of shirt sponsor Opus Energy will continue to be involved with Northampton Town and the club would like to thank Andy Nash, Operations Director of Opus Energy, who has been instrumental in the relationship over the last 3 years.
