Partick Thistle’s principal sponsor, Just Employment Law, has pledged to back the Jags for another season, putting pen to paper on an extension of their deal this week.
A long term commercial partner of the Club, Just Employment Law first become involved with Thistle in February 2012 before returning as Jags principal sponsor last term.
Despite relegation, JEL Managing Director, David McRae, had no qualms in agreeing a deal for next season. He said: “Despite what happened last season, there is a huge amount of excitement around what is to come. Whenever you’re around the club, you can feel that – it’s infectious. There is a real feeling of a fresh start but with purpose and direction and we want to make sure we’re there to support the fight for an immediate return to top flight football. We want to be there for the next big moment.
“The Jags are our local club and we remain extremely proud to support an organisation with community spirit and talent development underpinning all that it does. The Club has some great people at its heart and it was wonderful working with them last season. There will be challenges ahead for all of us over the next 12 months but we are determined to play our part in helping Thistle get back to where the Club belongs – the Ladbrokes Premiership.”
Welcoming Just Employment Law back for another 12 months, Partick Thistle Chief Executive, Gerry Britton, said: “It is absolutely brilliant to have David and Just Employment Law back on board for another season. They really are the perfect sponsor and combine innovative methods of activation with some fantastic supporter engagement initiatives. They are a perfect model in how to get the most out of a sports brand sponsorship and I’m really looking forward to working with them this season.
“Obviously the priority was always to tie down the main sponsorship quickly as it is the highest profile sponsorship that we have and forms a significant portion of our budget for the season. With that in mind, it could have been a source of some concern had we been left without their support this year. From the off though, it was clear that David was keen to continue supporting the Club and the whole firm has really bought in to what we are aiming to achieve this season. I’m certain they will play a massive part in our fight to regain our Premiership status and, like them, we can’t wait to get started.”
