Ahead of the biggest season in Maidstone United’s recent history, the club have received a massive boost after main sponsors Britelite Windows agreed a one-year extension to their deal.
The agreement will see the south east’s leading supplier of windows, doors and conservatories continue their support of the Stones until the end of the 2017/18 season – the 25th year since the club reformed.
Britelite, who’ve been associated with the Vanarama National League newcomers for more than 40 years, returned as main sponsor in 2011 and have been with the club every step of the way from the 2012 homecoming to the three promotions in four years.
Britelite director Dominic Baxter said: “Britelite Windows are delighted to extend our sponsorship with Maidstone United. When we became main sponsor again, the club were playing 12 miles out of town but here we are five years on about to start a season in the top flight of non-league football and playing in front of crowds of more than 2,000 in Maidstone.
“As a company we have really benefitted from our association with the club, which has helped raise awareness of the Britelite brand locally and further afield.
“We are enormously proud of what has been achieved and are enjoying the journey with the Stones.”
Club chief executive Bill Williams added: “We are so very fortunate to have a main sponsor like Britelite Windows. They have been with us on this incredible journey and we couldn’t have asked for better partners during that time.
“It’s a mark of how far the club have come that Britelite have committed for an additional year ahead of our first season in the National League.”
