Paligap managing director Stephen Cosh said: “We are delighted to team up with Ayr United to become the 2008/2009 season shirt sponsor.

“Although Paligap has grown to become a national marketing agency, our roots remain firmly in Ayr, and we are proud to support our local club. I believe the agreement offers both organisations many exciting benefits, and we look forward to a fruitful partnership in the coming season.

“Over the past few years Paligap has actively engaged in sponsoring and promoting local initiatives and charities, and we were keen to be involved with Ayr United Football Club as we feel strongly that football plays an important role in the local community.

“The Board at Ayr United are keen to promote football as a family event, and they already work at grass roots level with South Ayrshire Council, actively encouraging youth to take up the sport.”

Ayr United Football Club commercial director Hugh Cameron: said: “Ayr United are pleased to announce that Paligap will be our shirt sponsors for 2008/09. The club is delighted to have attracted such an outstanding and successful company, who combine a strong local presence here in Ayr and South Ayrshire while developing their business nationally.


“The company with its expertise in marketing and creative communication will be a valuable partner as we best meet the challenge of celebrating the end of an era here at Somerset Park, and the preparation for the new beginning at the Ayr Stadium, Sports & Business Campus at Heathfield (artist's impression above).”
