Within the renewed partnership, the club is today thrilled to announce that McCrea Mortgages will sponsor the popular Player of The Month awards for season 2020/21, with all winners once again voted for by supporters.
Before the first-team even kick a ball, McCrea Mortgages will work with the club to present a special one-off “PTFC Supporter Recognition Award” as a thank you to the outstanding contribution to their community made by a fan or group of fans during lockdown. The nomination process for this award will be revealed on Monday.
Douglas McCrea, Managing Director of McCreas said: “We’re delighted to renew our sponsorship of Partick Thistle for this important season ahead, as longstanding supporters of the club. The player of the month awards have been synonymous with McCrea Financial Services over the years and we are thrilled to be back supporting the club and hope it adds to a successful season ahead for Ian and the team.
“The way the support has rallied behind the club in such a difficult year has been fantastic, although Thistle fans have always been brilliant in that sense. In such a uniquely challenging year, we wanted to recognise a supporter or group who have gone above and beyond with this one-off award to say thanks and show our appreciation for everything they have done.”
At the end of each month of the 2020/21 season the McCrea Mortgages Player of The Month shortlist will be determined by the Thistle management team, with the winner chosen by supporters in a vote and the winning player presented with his award at the start of the following month.
Welcoming the support of McCrea Mortgages, Thistle chief executive Gerry Britton said: “It’s absolutely fantastic that Douglas and his team at McCreas are backing the club for season 2020/21 including the welcome return of their player of the month awards, voted by the fans. The addition of a special fan award recognising an outstanding contribution from the past six months will be a really positive way to sign out of the summer and provide a fitting thank you for all the support we have enjoyed throughout.”
Part of McCrea Financial Services, McCrea Mortgages recognise that for most people, their mortgage is probably the single largest financial transaction they are like to undertake. McCreas have over 20 years’ experience dealing with all aspects of mortgages and are not tied to any particular company, bank or insurance provider which allows them to find the right mortgage for their customers.
