LAW firm Kerwoods has lent its support to Redditch United by becoming a sponsor of the Valley Stadium outfit.

The move, which will see the Kerwoods name highlighted around the ground, comes as the club continues work on an impressive £900,000 refurbishment.

“We too are investing in one of the main local businesses that carries the Redditch flag,” said Kerwoods partner Ashley Gurr.

“An ambitious business, we are fast developing, as are the Reds.

“It is exciting times for both of us. With our background in Redditch, we felt it was important that we got behind our local team.”

A cutting-edge 3G pitch is being installed at the Valley along with major improvements being made to the clubhouse.

The £900,000 project has come together through a £561,000 grant from the Premier League and The FA Facilities Fund, £88,166 from the Football Stadia Improvement Fund and £225,000 from United chairman Chris Swan, who praised Kerwoods’ contribution.

“Their participation is greatly appreciated and is symptomatic of the way so many in and around Redditch are rallying round,” he said.

“For example, our supporters have agreed to pay the wages of Clayton McDonald, the former Manchester City, Walsall, Port Vale and Tranmere Rovers defender who has rejoined after leaving Worcester City.

“Partners such as Kerwoods are very important to us as we look to go one better than last season.”
