The Gallagher Stadium’s newest hospitality lounge has a new name.
The Amber Lounge is now known as the Bill Williams Amber Lounge. This wasn’t an early Christmas present from Mrs Williams but at the request of a supporter who has sponsored it until the end of season.
The anonymous donor, who we’ll call Mr Stones said: “I am very pleased to sponsor the lounge and decided to name it after someone who’s done so much for the club over many years. In covering the sponsorship for the rest of this season, I hope a local business will come forward to do next season and beyond, much like Gullands have done with the other lounge. It’s an excellent way for a company to raise their profile and be associated with a great club.”
Bill Williams added: “We are very fortunate to have such wonderful supporters and for one of them to go to this length is exceptional. I am very flattered to have the lounge named after me for the season but have decided against the life-size portrait on the wall! In all seriousness many thanks for the generosity – it is very much appreciated.”
The Bill Williams Amber Lounge is a members’ lounge on match days and it’s available to hire throughout the week for meetings and receptions.
