Partick Thistle can today announce that Macklin Motors Nissan Glasgow Central is giving the Club its backing once more by extending its existing sponsorship agreement to cover season 2018/19.
The Port Dundas Road dealership, which is located just five minutes away from the Jags’ Maryhill home, will provide the team with three Nissan Qashqai’s for use by the Manager, Assistant Manager and Chief Executive.
Gerry Britton, Partick Thistle Chief Executive, said:
“It’s great to have the support of Macklin Motors for the season ahead after they decided to extend our existing deal for another year. The dealership is located close to the stadium and we always try to partner with businesses that serve the community around the Club. We’ve worked well with Macklin over the last couple of years, so it’s great to have them onboard once again.”
The general manager of Macklin Motors Nissan Glasgow Central, Robert Auld, holds a special connection with the Jags. His father Robert “Bertie” Auld managed the side twice during his illustrious career and is still a favourite with the Jags fanbase. He said:
“Macklin Motors is always proud to support its local community and with Thistle being our local side, it was a no brainer to continue to back the Jags. We can see Firhill from the top of our iconic glass tower so we’ll be keeping a keen eye on them throughout the course of the season.”
